Valleyfair’s newest ride, Delirious, finished fifth in the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest for Best New Amusement Park Attraction.
Delirious made its debut at Valleyfair in 2018. Delirious coils riders upside-down on a seven-story, 360-degree freestanding structure with a high capacity, high-speed train. The ride is a prominent feature in the park’s Route 76 nostalgia-themed area.
Delirious joined other improvements in the picturesque Route 76 area including new shade structures, improved lighting, and enhanced seating and gathering locations. The themed area opened in 2014 as a way to bring guests back to the classic ambiance of Valleyfair when it first opened in 1976.
Nominees for all categories are chosen by a panel of relevant experts which include a combination of editors from USA TODAY; editors from 10Best.com; relevant expert contributors; and sources for both these media and other Gannett properties. The 10Best are then determined through online voting during a four-week period.
Guests can ride Delirious all season long in 2019 with a Gold Season Pass, on sale now at the lowest price of the year, or a free Pre-K Pass that provides children between three and five years of age with complimentary admission all season long. The gold pass provides unlimited access to Valleyfair, Soak City Waterpark, and ValleySCARE.
