Not All Rides Will Be Open & Capacity Will Be Limited

Not all of the rides at the amusement park will be available when it opens on May 22nd and the guests must preplan their visit. Valleyfair's website explains, "Valleyfair and Soak City will open with limited capacity in the park so you can maintain proper social distancing from other guests. To ensure that happens, you will need to purchase tickets or Season Passes online in advance for your visit, and you will need to make a reservation for your visit date and arrival time in advance."

You can start planning because Valleyfair is now accepting reservations. You can reserve a date and time to visit the park, here.

Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
