It’s not really summer in Minnesota without a ride on the High Roller, the iconic Valleyfair roller coaster that’s been with the park since it opened in 1976. The 125-acre theme park features more than 75 rides and attractions, as well as the opportunity to reunite with the Peanuts gang at Planet Snoopy. The amusement park opens for the season on May 14, and park goers can cool off at Valleyfair’s Soak City Waterpark starting May 27. While there’s plenty of fun to be found on any day at Valleyfair, mark your calendars for special events, including Grand Carnivale from June 24–July 9, Fourth of July fireworks and Latin Days on August 5–6. Daily tickets average $34.99 online or $60 at the gate, and season passes start at $79 with taxes and fees.
