  1. This is a crazy thought, and I don't think it will happen. But just a thought, so I thought I'd throw it out here: Within the past few days, Knott's closed Timberline Twister, a very small and compact kids coaster. What if this was transferred to Valleyfair's Planet Snoopy to go in the plot of land formerly occupied by Snoopy's Junction? If it could be moved and the ride still works, I think it'd be a good addition for a park that's heavily advertising to families with small children. The park needs something in between the powered coaster and Mad Mouse.
  2. Went to MM for the first time today. What a horribly run park. Today, one of the busiest days of the year (Saturday in July), all of the following were closed: Riddler’s Revenge Justice League Lex Luthor Ninja Apocalypse Log Flume Backwards on Superman Ride ops were terrible. Parking was almost to capacity. Just a terrible day. Is the park dead on Tues/Wed nights?
  3. Did anyone notice that Valleyfair removed the small Snoopy's Junction kids train ride behind the monorail? I've always thought this would be a prime expansion pad, especially given that Valleyfair seems to be marketing more to families. Any work being done? Are the train tracks/sign/station still there? Or is it all gone? Have to remember that in the last 5 years, Valleyfair has added 0 new rides, and now, they have removed 5 attractions: Snoopy's Moon Bounce, Snoopy's Junction, Dinosaurs Alive, Looping Starship, and RipTide...
  4. What roller coasters are typically closed for Holiday in the Park?
  5. Are there reservations available for 6/26? I don’t want to buy a ticket and find out that the day is all booked. If someone can help me out, that would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Chickie and Pete's is not returning for 2020. It looks like Valleyfair will be bringing back Stadium Grille. This was the name of the sports bar several years ago. Personally, Chickie's was one of the better food options in the park. Sad to see it go - even though the building remains.
  7. According to the website listed below, Six Flags Over Texas will be receiving a Mack Power Splash. This is found in shipping archives, and is known to be accurate. It has been confirmed by industry insiders. Should be a fun edition! I believe SFOG could receive the same. https://panjiva.com/Six-Flags-Over-Texas/2136796
  8. I personally believe Cedar Fair’s next move has to be adding on to the water park. Right now, we have a good foundation - but there needs to be more. I think that if Looping Starship is removed, there is enough room for a large addition (i.e. mat racer). Completely separate- I think the outdoor stage by the Galaxy Theater has seen its last days. This year, the Chick-fil-a stand is right there. While this plot of land is so small that it’s not really usable, I could see a more permanent Chick-fil-a restaurant/stand being built. Valleyfair’s attendance seems down this year. Let’s hope for some change this offseason with a new addition.
  9. Are there any permits filed for Valleyfair in the county or city?
  10. Going back to the loose article policy, I think a lot of the concern draws from the fact that many people are literally addicted to their cell phones. Even 5-10 years ago, this wouldn’t be as big of an issue. I think now, people always feel that they “NEED” to check Twitter/Snapchat/Instagram every 15 minutes. Yes, I get it would be nice (and pretty standard) to have your phone in a line that long, but it is really sad to see that people seem to believe they can’t survive without it.
  11. No FastLane needed; I suggest this order: - Steel venom - High roller - Mad mouse - Renegade - Excalibur - Wild Thing - Corkscrew
  12. This is a bad thing? I'm kind of baffled as to how this is surprising. If I’m a paying guest at a theme park, I shouldn’t have to hear many, many ads about buying something; I’m here to see a dog show — not watch ads.
  13. Anybody else see the new dog show? I thought it was OK. Good: some good tricks, visually pleasing Bad: lots of advertising (buy this souvenir save the dogs), very repetitive, dogs don’t always do what they are supposed to
  14. Chick-Fil-a is at VF now? That is news to me. Where is it? Must have missed it on my couple visits this year. Chik-Fil-A has taken over the Chicken Shack by Planet Snoopy on select days. Locations outside the park are sponsoring(?) it. So it does not appear to be a permanent Chick-Fil-A location. Temporary this year but the manager said there are plans to bring Chick-fil-a full time to VF next year. I’m not lying or exaggerating.
  15. I am looking for information on getting a job at Valleyfair this year as an instrumentalist, but I see no openings on the Jobs website. Does anybody have any Valleyfair entertainment email addresses? Or if an outside company produces the shows, do you know what company that is?
