I am just a kid at heart, and I love fun. One of my favorite things is roller coasters. Ever since I was little I have loved coasters!! I have visited a few amusement parks, like Disney, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Universal, Islands of Adventure, local fairs, etc., but one of the best ones I have to say is right in my home state of Minnesota. Valley Fair in Shakopee is awesome!! They have so many coasters, in one park. They have a lot more than just coasters too. But, I am a coaster girl. One of my fav’s is Wild Thing. Such a rush!! Another is Steel Venom, and boy let me tell you that was takes my breath away. Here you can see part of Steel Venom and The Wild Thing.
We had a total blast, but man was it hot. I am guessing it hit 95 degrees out. I am not one for water rides as I hate to be wet, because things chafe when you are wet.. LOL! (ya’ll know what I mean). Well we just had to cool off so we went on the Wave, and later in the day went on Thunder Canyon. Got totally soaked on both, but dried fairly quickly.
We rode the High Roller, Corkscrew, Renegade, Wild Thing, The Wave, Thunder Canyon, Excalibur and Mad Mouse. We also went thru the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit. There were a couple others we wanted to ride, but both of us have issues with our necks and Renegade and Excalibur are pretty rough rides and threw us around a bit so we didn’t get to do Power Tower, or Steel Venom. So, that means we have to go again soon!
When we first got there we got some pics of us at the entrance, then with a Snoopy statue, and then with a real Snoopy!
Half way thru the day we just had to stop and eat something. So, we ducked into Chickie’s & Pete’s and got some Crabfries and a big refillable tumbler that we could carry around and get refilled at other spots in the park. The Crabfries were so good. They are a crinkle fry (my fav) sprinkled with crab seasoning. A must try when you go!
If you are from Minnesota, or anywhere close by you have got to check out Valleyfair. You will love it, and have a blast! And, if you know what day you are going and want to save some money you can get your tickets, parking and fast passes online.
