Valleyfair is planning something new and something old – or I guess retro would be a better word – for the 2014 season.

The Minnesota-based theme park will unveil a new roller coaster called Northern Lights and a retro-based area called Route 76.

Flying up to 42 feet above Route 76, Northern Lights will have everyone clinging to the handrails for the ultimate family coaster experience. Guests 42” or taller, will rock and roll on over 300 feet of track at speeds of up to 43 mph. At night, Northern Lights’ dancing lights of blues, greens and purples will match the same colorful display of light that illuminate the horizon during this natural phenomenon.


The new Route 76 area will take guests back into amusement park Americana with the return of three Valleyfair classic rides that made their debut in 1976 when the Park opened. Antique Autos, a treasured favorite, returns with a new roadway in Route 76 featuring brand new Cadillac styled cars. Tilt-a-Whirl and Scrambler will also be relocated to the new area and will receive new themes and LED light packages, bringing guests a perfect mix of classic and new to ensure they get their kicks on Route 76.

Set to debut in May of 2014, Route 76 will be located by Steel Venom and will include the newly added full service catering facility Picnic Point.

Valleyfair is easy to get to, just 25 minutes southwest of the Twin Cities on County Road 101, just east of Shakopee, Minnesota.
