What's New for 2022?

Valleyfair |
August 23, 2021

As summer is coming to end, we can think back on the fun we have had this summer at Valleyfair. Coming out of 2020, we were all eager to get back to our favorite rides and slides, and the park didn’t disappoint. From rides on Wild Thing and Renegade to enjoying the new sights and sounds of Grand Carnivale, our 45th season brought countless memories and smiles. Some highlights including local coaster enthusiast “Renegade Mike” hitting 10,000 miles on Renegade, new food items available throughout the park, and of course we can’t forget the kick-off of our largest event yet, Grand Carnivale!  

With new and exciting things coming in the 2022 season you won’t want to miss out on a thing, and the best way to do this? With a Gold Pass, of course! Experience exclusive perks, discounts, and more all included with our pass. Not to mention unlimited parking and visits not only for the 2022 season but the rest of 2021 too! With a pass that pays for itself in two visits, it is a deal too good to pass up.  

Now, on to the newest additions and adventures of 2022!  


Grand Carnivale Returns Bigger and Better 

Guests who visited the park July 24 - August 8 got to enjoy the cultural celebration of Grand Carnivale with extravagant sights and décor around the park, pulsing rhythms of our Spectacle of Color Parade, delicious tastes and sips from our 5 food booths, and Carnivale Concoctions drink booth, and more! We are so excited that Grand Carnivale will be back bigger and better than ever. Whether you were able to join in on the celebration or not, this is an event you won’t want to miss in 2022! We will be bringing back even more entertainment, expanding the Spectacle of Color parade, and bring you new menu items from around the world. 

Coasters Diner Renovation 

Your favorite 50s diner is getting a makeover this upcoming off-season. Coasters Diner will have a brand-new feel in 2022 as it continues to take guests back in time with jukebox jams, delicious eats, and a new retro feel. 

Brand NEW Bar 

The Coca-Cola Refresh Stand near Superior Stage and Monster is getting a total transformation and will be home to a full bar for all your favorite cocktail creations. This is the perfect spot to grab an ice-cold beer or refreshing mocktail while enjoying the spectacular live shows and entertainment at Superior Stage.  

NEW Halloween Celebrations 

Halloween celebrations at Valleyfair are transforming in 2022 with an all-new décor, lights, entertainment, and unique Halloween experiences. We can’t wait to share more information about these new experiences in the next few months!  


Our team is already looking forward to a wonderful 2022 season and these are just a few of the many improvements and changes you can expect to see around the park next year!
