For the first time in years we went to Valleyfair. I’m a thrill ride fan so I was hoping to hit up all the coasters, but it was also Lily’s first visit so there were plenty of new kid rides that I knew I’d be trying out. We picked a great day as it wasn’t […]

Valleyfair Construction 1974

Back in 1974 there wasn’t much to Valleyfair. In fact, two local businessmen were just starting to build it.

During the day it’s fun and kid frienly, at night, it’s for adults and aimed to scare you to death. What I don’t get is why? Why do themeparks love to do this? Parks all around the country […]

Battle: ValleyFair VS. Nickelodeon Universe

I think it’s hard to compare ValleyFair and Nickelodeon Universe as they are two completely different parks with different visitors. But lets give it a go. ValleyFair tailors more to big kids, Nickelodeon Universe to little kids. ValleyFair is outdoors, Nickelodeon Universe is indoors. ValleyFair is pricy but all rides are included, Nickelodeon Universe is pay per ride for […]
