Valleyfair, the Minnesota amusement park located in Shakopee, is making preparations to reopen this spring, following a lost year due to COVID-19. Spokeswoman Kelsey Megard says they are eager for their opening on May 22nd.

“We’re definitely ready to make up for the fun we didn’t have in 2020. Get Minnesota families back out into the park to have that safe, fun environment to create those memories that we kind of missed out on in the last year.”

As part of their preparations for opening the park launched a hiring push this week to bring on one-thousand new employees for the summer and early fall.
