  1. No VF this year. Not much of a surprise by now though. https://www.valleyfair.com/park-update
  2. I wonder if Cedar Fair filing a suit or taking action against MN similar to what they did in OH would be reasonable at all. The reason I think this is a possibility is that the state has said places such as MOA can open that typically on an average day have about 110,000 guests in an indoor environment, but a place such as VF on average has far fewer guests while also being outdoors. I think though even if it is a reasonable claim, CF does not care enough about VF to do this, but maybe they would.
  3. I don't know how recently it was but the pass holder preview is canceled, hopefully, the bland carnival doesn't also have to be canceled, that would be a tragedy.
  4. As of now It looks like they will be opening on the scheduled date as of now https://www.valleyfair.com/park-update Who know if they will be actually able to open by then though, maybe this is just a strategy to keep all of the Karens from complaining.
  5. https://www.valleyfair.com/explore/calendar-and-hours Hmmmmm, December 2020 listed on the calendar!? wonder what that could be (Winterfest maybe)
  6. Ok, I may be completely wrong but as I was checking over my season pass status on VF's website I noticed that my season pass expires on 1/3/2021, instead of the usual date which would be 12/31/2020, and I could not help but notice that this would also be when Winter Fest would typically end leading me to believe I am probably wrong, but VF could be getting Winter Fest this year.
  7. I saw police cars and firetrucks rushing towards the front of the park, and was told by one of the head security guards that the Superior Stage had burned down. However, I didn't actually see the stage myself. The damage must not have been very bad as they started having shows on it again this weekend.
  8. It was all part of Cedar Fair's recent scheme to get rid of any ride, now anything that involves too much maintenance.
  9. Dang, to me this is actually fairly disappointing because I am one of those people that actually likes the Looping Starship as it is a strong 2nd place or possibly best flat ride in the park for me. I understand that Delirious is fairly similar, but to me, it just isn't the same as there is way less hang time, and it gives less of a feeling that you are about to get stuck upsidedown. I just hope that if they expand the water park there, that they don't put some pointless slow-paced tornado or toilet bowl slide in, I hope they put in a good fast slide complex or a fast-paced larger slide.
  10. I was at the park on Saturday and I was very surprised that this did not happen that day. On Saturday about four of the larger rides were open (Renegade, Wild Thing, Delirious, and Looping Starship) other than that all of the other thrill rides were closed. Also for most of the day, there were likely no more than 200 cars in the parking lot at one time. I am also surprised as the weather today was more or less better than yesterday except for a few moments. One more thing that I noticed and made me think they should have had at least Wild Thing and maybe Renegade closed was that they were runn
  11. I definitely agree that the complaints are not much and they don't ruin the experience. The way I see it is that it is better this year safety wise because even though there are more lights there is less of a chance of another large fight, closing the whole park. The only downside I see this year is the new scare zone "Into the Darkness" feels very disappointing because while the scare actors are good, there is nothing else that goes with the area such as theming. Other than that the shows are pretty good, especially if you get a friend to get hypnotized at the hypnosis show (or you be part of
  12. After what has happened at KD (Volcano) and KI (Vortex and Firehawk) where Cedar Fair has been just deleting the higher maintenance coasters that are ~30 years old, what the future of Corkscrew and especially Excalibur will be as they both fit into that category as Corkscrew is 39 and Excalibur is now 30. What I think is that Corkscrew is likely safe for now as its footprint is very small and not much would fit there, but I feel even though it has been wrongfully predicted for many years, that the next couple years will be Excalibur's last due to age and low popularity (I hope not though).
  13. Just looked at the list. I am glad they got some new scare zones as the ones last year felt very lacking in actually being scary, but the way the two new ones look and are described, I think they will definitely improve the lineup. I also look at the map but did not see the scare zones marked. Does anyone know where they will be located? I think that the area near Looping Starship would be good for one, possibly the midway area where no one goes, or the area near the bumper cars near Corkscrew. Other than that everything looks pretty similar to previous years, still wish they could have Excali
  14. I heard that all pass holders that attended the park on opening weekend get a free Fastlane. Is this a real thing?
  15. This article better be a joke, or it is just really bad because in my opinion there are at least 4 or 5 coasters that are definitely better than the Avatar Airbender in MN. Also in the article it says that Wild Eagle at Dollywood is better than Lightning Rod, T3 at Kentucky Kingdom is better than Lightning Run and Storm Runner, (some people may find this one to be correct) and it also says that The Beast is the best coaster in Ohio, and finally my favorite mistake in the article is if you go to https://www.popularmechanics.com/adventure/g28062751/best-roller-coaster-every-state/?slide=47 or pa
  16. It's a small thing, but I was just looking through the new Valleyfair app and noticed that the rider height safety section still lists the Hydroblaster, and I then looked on their website and it is also still there under the family rides section, even though. rides like Riptide and Enterprise are not listed. Also if you look up Hydroblaster Valleyfair it will bring up the page Has that been there ever since it was removed in 2013?
  17. I guess that is true that there are many people that are salty like that, and there are people who go in with expectations of a Cedar Point or Disney like park and get disappointed and I should have considered that, but it is still good that they are making improvements.
  18. I honestly find that this year should be fairly successful, because if you look at most of the complaints on google or any other site the main complaints except food prices(and lack of new roller coaster) seem to be considered as many comments say how the park is just rides and no entertainment so they are adding new stages and shows. Another thing is that people complain about bad, boring, and low quality food, and this year they have many more new food items than many years, and have hired a new food crew for the season to hopefully improve the quality of the food. One other thing they are c
  19. I just checked the permits and there is another new permit that is also unlabeled other than "Commercial Buildings", with a value of about $25,000. Also I wonder how this possible large amounts of snow at the end of this week will affect the preparation for the new season, and if the opening day will be pushed back. And one question. Do they usually wait this long to list the season pass nights, or has anyone heard anything about them not doing it this year.
  20. The map also shows that there is a new dining location in Soak City called "On a Stick!", and they have changed the Side Winder Burrito by the Xtreme Swing, into El Taco Mercado.
  21. It's a little late, but this thread is dead so I just wanted to point out that after Volcano at KD is gone, VF will no longer be the only Cedar Fair park without a full circuit invert so all people whining about that can be quiet about VF needing an invert (though they still need a new coaster)
  22. In past years it has been the second weekend of May so I am assuming that this year will be the same.
