Sorry if this seems a bit late to anyone.
Valleyfair is a great regional park for the upper midwest, it features some great coasters, but can't seem to bust out as a premier park. A great experience all the way through though and a must visit if your in Minnesota
Before I get too far into this trip report I must give you a tip from the learned, "Never take a coasterphobiac, and make sure that everyone in your group refrains from overdoing the alcholic consumption the night before you plan on heading out.
With that being said let me again say that I had a great time at Shakopee except for a few minor set backs in my party, that being that despite our early arrival to the park we had to waste a solid finding our coasterphobiac friend the right kind of drugs to soothe my friends week stomach.
First thing we did was hit the log flume which was nothing special except the decent last drop, and then headed over to a very underated river ride (You laugh our head off when you see where they've got the lifeguards posted here.) And while that did a great job waking some people up in the early morning hours we were all very wet and looking for a way to get dry in a hurry.
My first suggestion was that we all ride the Wild Thing, but that was refutted by shrills of fear from our coasterphobiac, and I figured that we were going to have to work up to the Wild Thing if we were going to get this guy on it.
So, we hit up the High Roller first. The first two things that come to mind was the long wait in the early morning for only a good woodie, and the fact that the I believe the ride operater has the world record for fastest time in securing the train. The coaster itself, like I mentioned before, is a good classic woodie, but the brakes and the lack of some needed paint and minor maintainence kept it from being awesome. Rumors have been circulating that VF is going to do some heavy repairs on the ride and feature it 渀 琀栀攀椀爀 ㈀㔀琀栀 愀渀渀椀瘀攀爀猀攀爀礀 渀攀砀琀 礀攀愀爀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀吀栀攀 渀攀砀琀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 眀攀 焀甀椀挀欀氀礀 栀椀琀 甀瀀 眀愀猀 琀栀攀 䌀漀爀欀猀挀爀攀眀⸀ 䤀 猀琀椀氀氀 氀漀瘀攀 栀漀眀 琀栀攀 琀爀愀挀欀 椀猀 氀愀椀搀 漀甀琀 漀瘀攀爀 琀栀攀 瀀漀渀搀 愀琀 嘀䘀 愀渀搀 䤀 琀栀椀渀欀 琀栀愀琀 椀琀猀 愀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 礀漀甀 眀愀渀琀 琀漀 栀椀琀 甀瀀 愀琀 氀攀愀猀琀 琀眀椀挀攀 ⠀琀栀愀琀 椀猀 椀昀 礀漀甀 栀愀瘀攀渀✀琀 戀攀攀渀 琀漀 琀栀攀 瀀漀椀渀琀⤀⸀ 䰀椀渀攀猀 眀攀爀攀 瘀攀爀礀 昀愀猀琀 漀渀 琀栀椀猀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 愀渀搀 䤀 眀愀猀 愀戀氀攀 琀漀 挀愀琀挀栀 愀 昀爀漀渀琀 猀攀愀琀 椀渀 氀攀猀猀 琀栀攀渀 洀椀渀甀琀攀猀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䘀椀渀愀氀氀礀 眀攀 洀攀愀渀搀攀爀攀搀 戀愀挀欀 琀漀 琀栀攀 䔀砀挀愀氀椀戀甀爀Ⰰ 眀栀椀挀栀 椀猀 琀栀攀 洀漀猀琀 甀渀搀攀爀愀瀀瀀爀攀挀椀愀琀攀搀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 椀 栀愀瘀攀 攀瘀攀爀 戀攀攀渀 漀渀Ⰰ 琀栀攀爀攀 椀猀 愀戀猀漀氀甀琀攀氀礀 渀漀 氀椀渀攀 愀渀搀 䤀 最漀琀 琀栀攀 昀爀漀渀 猀攀愀琀 眀椀琀栀椀渀 㔀 洀椀渀甀琀攀猀⸀ 吀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀 昀攀愀琀甀爀攀猀 愀 最爀攀愀琀 猀琀攀攀瀀 愀渀最氀攀搀 搀爀漀瀀 ⠀愀氀戀攀椀琀 愀 猀栀漀爀琀 漀渀攀⤀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 愀 猀甀爀瀀爀椀猀椀渀最Ⰰ 焀甀椀挀欀 猀攀挀漀渀搀 栀椀氀氀⸀ 吀栀攀 昀愀挀琀 琀栀愀琀 栀攀愀搀 挀栀漀瀀瀀攀爀 猀攀挀琀椀漀渀 眀椀氀氀 洀愀欀攀 愀渀礀漀渀攀 漀瘀攀爀 猀椀砀 昀漀漀琀 眀愀渀琀 琀漀 搀甀挀欀 漀甀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 眀愀礀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 最爀攀愀琀 瀀愀挀椀渀最 洀愀欀攀猀 琀栀椀猀 愀渀 攀砀挀攀瀀琀椀漀渀愀氀 爀椀搀攀⸀ 䤀 眀漀甀氀搀 挀愀甀琀椀漀渀 栀漀眀攀瘀攀爀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀椀猀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 椀猀 漀渀 琀栀攀 猀栀漀爀琀 猀椀搀攀 愀渀搀 椀猀 瘀椀挀琀椀洀 琀漀 䄀爀爀漀眀✀猀 琀爀愀搀椀琀椀漀渀愀氀 爀漀甀最栀渀攀猀猀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀吀栀攀 氀愀猀琀 漀昀 琀栀攀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀猀 椀猀 愀渀 漀甀琀猀琀愀渀搀椀渀最 樀漀戀 戀礀 戀漀琀栀 䌀攀搀愀爀 䘀愀椀爀Ⰰ 嘀愀氀氀攀礀昀愀椀爀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 䐀⸀䠀 䴀漀爀最愀渀⸀ ⠀䄀渀搀 䈀吀圀 礀攀猀 眀攀 昀椀渀愀氀氀礀 搀椀搀 最攀琀 琀栀攀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀瀀栀漀戀椀愀挀 琀漀 爀椀搀攀 椀琀 愀渀搀 栀攀 氀漀瘀攀搀 椀琀⤀ 吀栀攀 圀椀氀搀 吀栀椀渀最 椀猀 愀渀 愀眀攀猀漀洀攀 栀礀瀀攀爀挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 眀椀琀栀 猀漀洀攀 甀渀戀攀氀椀攀瘀攀愀戀氀攀 愀椀爀 琀椀洀攀⸀ 䠀漀眀攀瘀攀爀Ⰰ 礀漀甀 洀甀猀琀 戀攀最 眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 漀瀀攀爀愀琀漀爀 琀漀 攀愀猀攀 甀瀀 漀渀 琀栀攀 戀爀攀愀欀猀 漀爀 攀氀猀攀 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 氀漀眀攀爀猀 椀琀猀攀氀昀 琀漀 樀甀猀琀 琀栀攀 ✀最爀攀愀琀✀ 猀琀愀琀甀猀⸀ ⠀䄀渀搀 䈀吀圀 礀攀猀 眀攀 昀椀渀愀氀氀礀 搀椀搀 最攀琀 琀栀攀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀瀀栀漀戀椀愀挀 琀漀 爀椀搀攀 椀琀 愀渀搀 栀攀 氀漀瘀攀搀 椀琀⤀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䄀猀 嘀愀氀氀攀礀昀愀椀爀Ⰰ 栀愀猀 樀甀猀琀 愀搀搀攀搀 琀栀攀 倀漀眀攀爀 吀漀眀攀爀 ⠀椀琀猀 愀 戀氀愀猀琀⤀ 椀琀猀 戀攀最椀渀渀椀渀最 琀漀 猀栀漀眀 猀椀最渀猀 漀昀 攀搀最椀渀最 椀渀琀漀 琀栀攀 爀愀渀欀 漀昀 愀 最漀漀搀 瀀愀爀欀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 甀渀琀椀氀 椀琀 愀搀搀猀 愀渀 椀渀瘀攀爀琀 漀爀 愀 䌀䌀䤀 眀漀漀搀椀攀 䤀 搀漀渀✀琀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀 挀愀渀 攀猀琀愀戀氀椀猀栀 椀琀猀氀攀昀 愀猀 愀 最爀攀愀琀 漀渀攀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀㌀⸀㔀 漀甀琀 漀昀 㔀 猀琀愀爀猀
