Valleyfair Flooding Closes Three Rides And Restricts Parking
It's been a wet, cold spring and summer in Minnesota. All of that moisture has caused flooding in many areas of the state. Now, flooding is causing Minnesota's biggest amusement park to close some of their rides and alter their parking situation.
According to officials at Valleyfair, the park closed the Renegade and Excalibur rollercoasters and the Thunder Canyon water ride.
Valleyfair and the rest of its rides are still open to the public, but on-site parking is limited due to high water.
In addition, the extra water has consumed some of the main parking lot at Valleyfair. Attendees are directed to park at Canterbury Park and utilize the free shuttle service instead.
