Valleyfair Loses Electricity, Strands Riders

Posted: Updated:
Shakopee, MN -

Rides a little more thrilling than normal last night at Valley Fair. The power went out at the amusement park just after 4:20 p.m. leaving riders stuck on rides, such as the Ferris Wheel. The outage was deemed equipment failure and was restored later Tuesday evening. While Valleyfair stayed closed last night, it did reopen at 10 this morning. Valleyfair's Todd Larkin said as many people as possible were evacuated and that no injuries have been reported.
