One of the sure signs of summer is when you see the opening date of outside and seasonal activities and parks.  One of which is Valleyfair.

Valleyfair and Soak City - the water park on the grounds of Valleyfair, have both announced their opening dates. Valleyfair will open Sunday, May 14th. Soak City will be a couple of weeks later.

They have also announced some event dates as well, including a preview date which will be the day before the official opening date.  Saturday, May 13th will be the preview date.

If you are a Platinum, gold, silver or pre-K season pass holder, you will be able to check out the park on the preview day.

According to their press release:

Season Pass Preview Day is back and better than ever with unlimited access to your favorite rides and attractions before the park opens to the public. Don't miss out on this incredible event—more details soon!

If you do not have a season pass yet, and would like to enjoy all of the perks that you can get with the season pass, you can still purchase one.

The Soak City opening is set for May 27th which is Memorial Day weekend.  That is the "unofficial" start to Summer.  If you are a season pass holder, you will get an extra hour before opening to the general public each day.
