SHAKOPEE, Minn. – Valleyfair announced on Tuesday that they will remain closed for the rest of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are disappointed that we are unable to welcome our guests back to the park this season,” said Raul Rehnborg, Valleyfair’s General Manager and Vice President in a press release. “The safety of our guests and associates is always our top priority. Although we have done our due diligence in developing a comprehensive safety plan in accordance with industry and public health standards, the continued uncertainty in our region brought by COVID-19 has led us to the difficult yet responsible decision to keep the park closed for the rest of the year.”

The amusement park says all 2020 Season Passes will be valid through 2021.

They are also planning special events and park enhancements for 2021 including:

  • Peanuts Celebration, a special event honoring the classic cartoons of Minnesota native Charles Schulz
  • Corn Feast, the park’s longest-standing event featuring 30,000 lbs. of free corn on the cob and corn eating competitions
  • The new Lakeshore Landing event space, a new Corn Cart building where guests can watch corn roasting and popping through giant glass windows, and restroom renovations for the improved guest experience.
