󠄀Share a Milkshake
Gaze into each other’s eyes while sharing a delicious milkshake in the 70’s themed Coasters Diner. Our hand-spun specialty shake is served with mouthwatering toppings and colorful straws matching the retro souvenir jar, which makes these shakes totally Instagram worthy. With walk-up service and a jukebox, Coasters is a-rockin' place to get away from the summer heat and share a treat with your significant other.
Valleyfair is jam-packed with awesome carnival games, which means it is socially acceptable to show off in the 3 point contest or try your luck at the Ring Toss. Plus, if you win you get to give your date a giant cuddly teddy bear. Walking around the park with that just shows off how awesome you are. Win-win. Head over to the park’s arcade where you can play classics like Ski- Ball and Air Hockey, loser buys the funnel cake!
󠄀 Romantic Walk Down Route 76
There’s no better way to bring back childhood memories than a stroll down the nostalgic Route 76. This part of the park has some new beautiful hanging lights that add romantic lighting to the evening. This is also the perfect place for an end of the day photo. Make sure to go at dusk to get the best lighting!
󠄀Hold Hands on Rides
Ride seating arrangements often mean you have to get … cozy. Thrilling rides provide the perfect excuse to hold onto your partner’s hand for dear life. Rides at Valleyfair are definitely more fun when you have a special someone to share the experience with, not to mention the hilarious ride photos you two can share. Valleyfair provides a good chance to hold on getting close to them throughout the night.
󠄀Share a Romantic Ride on the Ferris Wheel
No date to an amusement park is complete without a ride on the Ferris wheel. This private ride provides a romantic view of the entire amusement park, which is especially gorgeous at night with the sparkling lights. Sharing an uninterrupted moment on this cliché ride is sure to bring your date night to the next level.
