A lightning strike over the weekend may have caused a slow burn in underground power lines. This then took out the power to a large chunk, half, of Valleyfair last night. Riders stuck on rollercoasters had to walk down the lift hill and other riders were helped out of rides also. No injuries were reported […]
We visited Valleyfair for the first time this weekend in about two years and tested out some of the new rides. Much to our surprise, the new wooden rollercoaster Renegade is awesome! Now, I’m not tying to say that I thought Renegade wasn’t going to be good. It just wasn’t that tall and you didn’t […]
-G has recently taken a trip to Valleyfair and shot some nice Renegade photos along with quite a few other rides in the park. Myself, I haven’t made it out to Valleyfair yet, but hopefully at the end of this month. 🙂 Check out -G’s Photos.
Tomorrow, May 12th, Valleyfair opens for the season. More exciting yet is that Renegade also opens for the first time ever! Renegade boasts a never-before-experienced twisting first drop, a low-to-the-ground high speed S-turn and a high speed station fly-by. Renegade will stand 104 feet tall and will drop 91 feet. It will reach a top […]
Our Vegas trip is over and the 85 degree days have been replaced with a 28 degree Minnesota day. It’s good to be home again, but it’s to darn cold. // Image lost. Sorry. Zooomr ate it. // While out in Vegas I got to ride the rides at the top of the Stratosphere tower […]
As more and more boards get nailed on, Valleyfair’s new coaster, Renegade, is taking shape. See the view from the top of the coaster at the ThemeParkReview forums.
I took a trip past Valleyfair this weekend and you could see Renegade peeping over the trees. Unfortunately, you can’t see much more. It’s stuck in an area that isn’t viewable from the road so I don’t have any good pictures to share.
I snapped this shot as we zoomed past Valleyfair today. Disregard my wife’s hand. 🙂 You can see parts of Renegade rising above the trees in the background. In the foreground you see Excalibur. We did plan on getting a better shot but didn’t drive back by on the way home.
We drove past Valleyfair to see if we could see any piles of wood or anything happening with Renagade from the road and couldn’t see anything. We took a picture of Excalibur though though to show everyone what we saw. From what I understand the new coaster should be around here somewhere.
For the first time since 1976, Valleyfair is building a new wooden rollercoaster; Renegade. Renegade stands 104 feet tall with drops of 91 feed. Top speeds are 52 mph and the 2 minute ride will take you 3,113 feet around the track. Two high-performance trains will hold 24 people a piece on each wild ride! […]
