New for 2019, Blood on the Boundary Waters will allow guests to roam through six decaying cabins each occupied by a frightening host. Scares are not limited to inside the cabins because this area is filled with roaming creatures who are darker and deadlier than the normal animals found up north.

Also new for 2019, ValleySCARE will be debuting Hypnotic, a hypnosis show that will either have guests laughing in their seats or clucking like a chicken on stage. This show is fun, fast-paced, and designed to generate audience participation.

Kids and families can join Snoopy and the Peanuts gang for some not-so-scary family fun at The Great Pumpkin Fest during the day on Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 21 through Oct. 27. Featuring trick-or-treating, kid friendly mazes, arts and crafts, and Peanuts Halloween shows, this event brings Halloween activities to life for the whole family.

Guests can get a head start on next season’s fun with a 2020 Gold Season Pass, on sale now at the lowest price of the year or a free Pre-K Pass that provides children between three and five years of age with complimentary admission all season long. The Gold Pass provides unlimited access to Valleyfair and Soak City Waterpark in 2020 and both include free visits to the park in for the rest of 2019 and 2020. Special pricing ends on Oct. 27.
