Map1 Valley Fair Dr.
Shakopee, MN 55379


Get your thrill on at Valleyfair, the Upper Midwest’s largest amusement park. With notorious thrill rides like Steel Venom, the aptly named Wild Thing, Xtreme Swing and RipCord, thrill seekers will find no better amusement park in the region. Not into soaring heights and stomach-dropping dips? Family and kid friendly rides abound in Planet Snoopy, and with live music and the state-of-the-art animatronic Dinosaurs Alive exhibit, visitors find themselves needing (and wanting) to come back time after time to experience all the park has to offer. Located in Shakopee, Valleyfair has been a favorite family attraction since 1976.
