Load up the family truckster and head on down to Valleyfair in Shakopee for more fun than you can shake a stick at. The upper Midwest's largest amusement park, Valleyfair is filled with rides for kids of all ages. From classic rides like the six classic coasters -- including the Corkscrew or the creaky old High Roller -- Ferris wheels, and bumper cars, to new attractions like Dinosaurs Alive, each visit is always an adventure. The park has several designated rides for children, including a scenic train ride around the grounds, along with a world-class selection of thrill rides to satisfy any daredevil, like the 200-foot, free-falling Power Tower. The venue also offers mini-golf and live entertainment, and novelty shops selling gear and food line the walking paths. When the temperatures soar they've also got the killer Soak City water park for cooling off.
