Valleyscare is returning to Shakopee's Valleyfair amusement park after a two-year hiatus. The park had transitioned to a more family-friendly Tricks or Treats event.

Valleyscare bills itself as the 'largest Halloween event in the Twin Cities.' Combining the park's vast selection of thrill rides with haunted experiences like costumed characters and jump-scares around every corner.

As night falls on the park, hundreds of creatures from the underworld emerge to make your worst nightmares come true. With three new spine-chilling haunted mazes, three new and revamped elaborate scare zones, and thrilling night rides, these ominous experiences will force you to sleep with the lights on. Spooky live show debuts and seasonal drinks and eats add to the screamingly good fun.


Visitors can experience six immersive haunted mazes, including three new 'creepy' mazes, three frightening 'scare zones,' tons of 'eerie entertainment' and new Halloween-inspired food and beverage options.

“We heard you loud and clear, and I am excited to welcome back our talented team of monsters to bring the scares back to our park for the Halloween season,” Valleyfair General Manager and Vice President Raul Rehnborg said.. “The return of ValleyScare adds an incredible amount of value to our Gold Season Pass. We can’t wait for you to eagerly plunge into all the frighteningly fun, thrill-filled festivities.”


Tricks or Treats will also return in 2024 as a daytime Halloween experience at the park.

ValleyScare will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from September 21st to October 26th. Unlike previous years, ValleyScare will require a separate admission ticket but is included with the purchase of a Gold Season Pass.

Tickets will go on sale later this summer.
