“Good Kid Fun”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We take the grandkids here often. They enjoy the Laser Tag, big slide, and water rides. I participate in the miniature golf, bowling and food. There are vido games you can win tokens and get prizes etc. Cost is not to bad.

“used to be nice but has gone way downhill :(”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Do not go here unless you like to overpay for broken attractions and games. It used to be so nice and fun for kids of all ages, but now it's run down and no fun at all for anyone over the age of 5. Really cannot be clearer than to say it was a complete waste of money. Very unfortunate. Someone needs to pump some cash into this place and bring it back to life.

“NEVER AGAIN”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

My kids and I have been here twice before today, and had a great time both times. We haven't been there though since the yr before last. We made the trip today though. Which is a 100+ miles give or take a few, and we were not very happy. I would most definitely have to agree that it would have been much better if someone cared enough to take care of the place. Half the games in the arcade were not working, and the stuff outside is starting to look pretty run down. Plus they have taken out a good bit of the stuff, and changed the rules that go with the wrist bands. Sadly we will not be going back again. This is our last trip to Valley Worlds of Fun!!!!

“would have potential if someone cared enough”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Kids and I had been here for an afternoon last year, so we stopped on our way through again recently. The place has significantly gone downhill.

Very hot day - they had giant fans going inside, so it wasn't horrible even though there's no AC.
$18 for a wristband is expensive, but wouldn't be as unreasonable IF THE RIDES WORKED!

Outside:
The sky drop was working...but had to be shut down occasionally "to let it cool" (I was curious if it was to cool the ride or the poor attendant manning it w/no shade whatsoever).
The rock wall appeared to be manned for all of about 5 minutes of the entire time we were there.
The bumper boats were our primary focus, as it was quite warm and they are the most fun anyway, but there were only 4 working. 2 more were running but had no water shooters...less than impressive. We were told that their "repair person had been off for a week" (??)
Another ride outside was closed.
Mini golf was open, but no shade on the course so it was way too hot to play.

Inside:
Laser tag is no longer included in the wristband. It just keeps getting more expensive.
Little roller coaster wasn't working.
Bumper cars were running, but employees were rude.
Bunny ride was actually working, but looks like it's seen much much better days.
1 small inflatable slide
You can only ride rides when there's an attendant there...they were doing a lot of standing around chatting so you'd have to wait until someone wandered over.

We ended up buying a wristband for 1 of our kids and then laser tag and tokens for the other and ourselves. Now here's the strange part...we had purchased the tokens, but only 1 attendant at 1 ride was actually collecting them??? While this did make for a better value for our $...it was a little odd.

If they could get things running...and keep them running...and provide some shade at least for the employees outside, it'd be a better option. Otherwise, find somewhere else to spend your afternoon.
