Headless Horseman at Valleyfair

ValleyScare Returns from the Grave at Valleyfair in 2024!

Ghouls and thrill-seekers, let me be the first to put your minds at ease after weeks of rampant internet speculation…ValleyScare is back, baby!

That’s right, after keeping us on the edge of our seats with a trail of vague, creepy social media teasers, Valleyfair amusement park finally pulled the curtain back on their big news. Minnesota’s most terrifying Halloween event will make its long-awaited return this fall!

Let’s dig into the dreadful details:

More Mazes, More Monsters

If you thought ValleyScare was scary before, you’re in for one hell of a reawakening. The 2024 lineup will be more immersive and intense than ever with not one, not two, but THREE brand new haunted mazes joining the slaughterhouse.

One of the new haunts is rumored to be “Carved Chaos,” taking inspiration from your worst pumpkin patch nightmares. Thinkerville carved Jack-o’-lanterns gone violently awry. I’m already trembling!

But that’s not all – returning frights like “CornStalkers” and “Haunted Hollows” are getting sinister revamps to make them fresher and more terrifying than before.

On top of all that maze madness, the park is introducing new scare zones throughout the park’s streets and corridors. One such zone called “Cirque du Slay” will feature terrifying, menacing circus performers ready to make your blood run cold.

Night Rider Frights

If simply walking around isn’t enough to put you into cardiac arrest, ValleyScare will also give you the chance to experience some of the park’s biggest thrill rides and attractions at night.

Getting to be in the theme park and going on rides like Wild Thing is absolutely terrifying. Seriously, my favorite time at the park has always been in the Fall!

Separate Admission, Stricter Policies

Now for some less-than-thrilling news…if you want to attend ValleyScare in 2024, you’ll need to purchase a separate admission ticket for the event, even if you have a regular season pass. Womp womp.

The one exception is if you splurge on Valleyfair’s Gold Season Pass, which will include ValleyScare admission.

Park officials are also implementing a strict new bag policy and chaperone requirements to hopefully keep things as under control as possible amidst the Halloween mayhem.

So start squirreling away those extra dollars if you hope to get your scare on this season! Ticket info and pricing is expected in the coming months.

Family Entertainment

For those who prefer their Halloween celebrations to be more family-friendly frights, have no fear – Valleyfair’s beloved Tricks and Treats event will still carry on separately from the intensely terrifying ValleyScare experience.

During daylight hours, parents can bring their little monsters to enjoy all the classic trick-or-treating fun throughout the park. Expect silly shows, whimsical decor, and plenty of candy giveaways amidst a much tamer, not-so-scary atmosphere. This less intense option allows families to celebrate the Halloween season together without being completely petrified!

It’s Been a Long, Dark Road

For those who have been clamoring for ValleyScare’s return after its premature cancellation in 2019, this announcement marks a long-awaited rebirth answered by the park.

Personally, I can’t wait to get reacquainted with the chills and thrills of ValleyScare. 2024 is shaping up to be a ghastly new era for Halloween haunt fanatics.

Will you be mustering your scream skills to brave the resurrected frights this fall?
