Whether you are someone that goes to Valleyfair once every summer or especially multiple times a year I did a little research  to see how you can enjoy yourself without breaking the bank. When you go to any kind of amusement park there are a lot of  expenses that add up quickly, parking, admission, drinks and food just to name a few. Just like a movie theater once you are in the park that is where they really make their money, so on a 80 degree day you might be willing to pay $8 for a bottle of water (not sure how much it actually costs but from what I have heard that sounds pretty close.)

As far as food goes I have had many friends who pack lunches ion a cooler and go out to the car to eat especially when they have kids in tow, but with a little planning some of the deals they offer could really save you some money in the end.

* If you are someone that goes to Valleyfair once per season then consider this. A general admission ticket for One day is $34 before taxes and fees and that does not include parking which is around $17. You have already spent $51 just to get in the park! Add food and drinks onto that it could easily push $100.
