Can you please take your positivity elsewhere? People are trying to bitch.



OMG I am dying. That is the best Billism yet. That made my day. :nina:


Bill it's cool, you'll have enough bitching to cover me after you return from your Great America trip. ;)

I'm planning on vising this Wednesday. I was originally gonna visit a couple weeks ago, but the weather and conflicting scheduled things caused me to put it off. What's the cheapest place to get tickets, the gate, their website, or someplace else?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Best deal right now is the Valleyfair Cares ticket for $35 through their website, plus they donate $1 to the 30 Days Foundation, which I'm not familiar with but appears to be a poverty relief charity.

If anyone's interested, I found this YouTube video from an old roller coaster TV program that has some cool footage of Wild Thing and Valleyfair from what looks like 1996 or 97. :)

Unless you're going to get a 2018 Platinum pass (which gets you 1 visit free this year) that's the best I saw, too. I think I'm going to use that VF Cares for Friday's visit.

Wow is it amazing how much the park has changed.

I'm lucky to make it up once a year, so a season pass wouldn't be worth it for me.
But, I was there today and had a lot of fun. The crowds were small so I had very short waits on most rides. I was surprised to see people bothering to get Fast Lane passes. The only rides with a wait were my first ride on the Power Tower and first ride on Renegade. The Power Tower had a skeleton crew and they were adding the second train to Renegade. I did end up riding many rides twice.
Renegade is by far my favorite now, it's built for constant speed. I use to really like Excalibur, but this time it was almost too rough. I think the High Roller's structure needs some maintenance. I know some movement and swaying is probably normal, but there seemed to be a lot.
North Star was fun and provides an excellent view. I managed to ride it twice.
It did briefly rain in the later afternoon which caused them to shut down Mad Mouse and water park slides, but nothing else.
When I was on the High Roller I noticed a sign and props for Beserkers, I first thought it was maybe a sign of a new ride, but now that I think about it I believe it's related to Haunt. Everything appeared to be running, nothing down for maintenance. I have a few pictures to post, but I'll probably do that tomorrow when I'm less lazy. :)
