^ If you want to get technical VF only has eight roller coasters, they list Northern Lights and the new Delirious as 'Family Thrill Rides'. But I hear you, VF is not getting multiple coasters over the next 3 years.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I didn't actually expect to see anything this year so this is a pleasant surprise! I'm actually most excited about seeing the lights over that whole pathway back to Steel Venom, that's going to look so great at night!

As for Delirious, I'm not sure it'll be my cup of tea, but I'll definitely be trying it out when it opens and maybe it'll surprise me again.

With my season at the park now over, it's time for me to head back to school. But before I do, I wanted to post the best pictures of the park I took in the time I had while not making you all scream on Power Tower.

While at a promotional event this weekend I got the OK from Todd, one of the heads of Valleyscare, to share information on what's going on at Valleyscare this Fall. NO SPOILERS below. Just basic info about themes/costumes/locations/names.

SCARE ZONES:
Trails End: Still in the same spot by Renegade. New costumes this year.

Carnevil: In the same zone as last year. Costumes are amazing. White suits with spatters of blood. Lots of prosthetics and masks used this year instead of face makeup.

Blood Creek Cemetery: Same zone as last year.


MAZES:
Zombie High: Same spot, 90's Theme this year

Chateau: Same spot, same theme

Mr. Cleaver: Same spot, same theme

Humane Habitat: Same spot, same theme

*NEW* Beserkers Unleashed: Gone are the theatrics! This will be a traditional walk through attraction with jump scares. It's using the same location but will be a single path. Should be a huge improvement.

*NEW* Dark Harvest: This is replacing Hellside Farm! The maze will be moving to the woods behind Beserkers and Humane Habitat. They already have the area all paved. The farm theme will remain the same, but the maze will be larger, more twisted and in a nice, dark isolated location. Should be the highlight this year (I'm scare actor there, so I'm biased!)

The scare zone that was under Corkscrew (sorry, forgot the name), will be replaced with Pumpkin Promenade. A large display of carved/lit pumpkins. Should look cool at night and be a great photo spot. No scares there.


Can't wait to scare the crap out of some of you this fall! (I'll be the one with the creepy doll, so say "hi" :devil: )

What does everyone think about the raptor coasters? Do you think Valleyfair will get one? Personally I sure hope not! While they may be fun the fact that there is only one passenger per car really turns me off. Half the fun is riding with friends! Plus the capacity is so low! If they come up with trains that can sit two per car maybe, but I really don't see this being a good fit for Valleyfair at all! Opinions??

I think everyone really wants a B&M inverted or wing coaster for the next one in the Dino area. B&M would be my choice.

I'd rather have a Raptor than a B&M. It's not like capacity is a huge issue at Valleyfair.
Top 10 - 1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Intimidator 305 3.) Maverick. 4.) Lightning Rod 5.) Fury325 6.) Phoenix 7.) Twisted Colossus 8.) Taron 9.) Millennium Force 10.) Expedition GeForce

Can I park my donkey here?

I could see VF putting a Raptor in before an invert but I would not see it going in the dinos areas.
