With Opening Day just one month away, we want to give you the inside scoop on what is new at Valleyfair for the 2019 season! 

Superior Stage
This brand new stage will host a variety of shows throughout the 2019 season. Located between The Wave and Corkscrew, you will not be able to miss the awesome sounds coming through Superior Stage's speakers. Superior Stage will be the centerpiece for a variety of events this season including Peanuts Celebration, Minnesota Eats, and ValleySCARE. 

Renovated Bathrooms

The bathrooms located near Pronto Pup and Snoopy vs. Red Baron got an HGTV inspired renovation this offseason. With new toilets, sinks, tiling, and vanities, this is going to be an awesome change. 

On A Stick 
A new dining location was recently installed in Soak City Waterpark. On A Stick will serve food on, that's right, a stick! Enjoy a variety of grilled items including shrimp, chicken, bacon, BBQ meatballs, and veggies. 

Soak City Waterpark Stage
Soak City Waterpark is getting a brand new stage that will host a variety of acts this summer. This new stage will be located between Breaker's Bay Wave Pool and Breaker's Bay Bar. It will be home to both Minnie and The St. Pauls, playing a variety of beach-inspired tunes, and the Party Police Waterpark Squad. 

Cotton Candy
You will not recognize our Cotton Candy building this season! This building has been renovated and better yet, so has our cotton candy menu. Out with blue and pink cotton candy and in with a variety of wild flavors including Birthday Cake, Orange Cream, and Cookies-n-Cream. Best of all, our cotton candy will now include a variety of toppings and glow in the dark cotton candy wands that make for perfect Instagramable moments. 

New Food Offerings

Almost every location at Valleyfair will be serving something new this season! Coasters will be serving a brand new gluten-free burger topped with bacon and hollandaise sauce served between two crispy hashbrowns. Sidewinder Burrito has been revamped and is now named El Taco Mercado. This location will be serving street tacos that can also be served on rice or over chips. Mama Chetta's will now be serving up delicious mostaccioli along with fresh Italian salads. Pronto Pup will be serving savory fried pickles including one that is rolled in Flamming Hot Cheetos. Cool N' Creamy will be honoring our previous mascot, Colonel Oompahpah, by debuting the Oompahpah Shake - topped with every sweet treat you can think of! 

Peanuts Celebration 
Valleyfair will debut a multi-weekend event, Peanuts Celebration, for the 2019 season. This is an all-new event uniquely dedicated to celebrating the beloved Peanuts™ characters and invites guests to step inside the pages of a Charles M. Schulz comic strip as the characters take over the park for the very first time. The newly introduced event will take place on weekends beginning June 8 through June 30.
