"We are disappointed that we are unable to welcome our guests back to the park this season," said Valleyfair's General Manager and Vice President, Raul Rehnborg. "The safety of our guests and associates is always our top priority. Although we have done our due diligence in developing a comprehensive safety plan in accordance with industry and public health standards, the continued uncertainty in our region brought by COVID-19 has led us to the difficult yet responsible decision to keep the park closed for the rest of the year."
