Roller coaster riders rejoice -- ValleyFair has announced that it will be open for the 2021 season starting May 22 with the sister park Soak City Waterpark opening for the season Saturday, May 29 (Memorial Day).
The power is back on after an outage stranded people on rides at Valleyfair amusement park in Shakopee. Xcel Energy spokeswoman Mary Sandok says the power was restored at 6 p.m. Tuesday after being out for about an hour and a half.
Valleyfair will debut a new attraction, Planet Snoopy, when the Shakopee amusement park opens for the season Saturday. The $9 million attraction features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and other "Peanuts" characters created by Minnesota native Charles Schulz.
