In September, I purchased my Valleyfair Season Pass for 2017. Thought it was a Great Deal.
Free parking, admission from May 7th (a week before the public) 'till Halloween for only $70.
Works for me.

On the other hand, there's the new Valleyfair MegaDouche Pass*.

Full season admission, all the soda you wanna drink, two meals on the house per visit AND first-in-line for the 'best' rides every visit. For only 'bout Three Hundred Bucks a person.

What's wrong with this picture? Besides the fact that this year's new ride is essentially last year's new ride on stilts...?

I'll tell ya what. That they're not ALSO offering Valet Parking for an additional $150 per season.

If anyone wants to pay that much for Valleyfair...? Hell, sell it to 'em. TAKE THEIR MONEY.

Oh, wait. I'd give away 'ValleyFair First Class' T-shirts to the first 300 MegaDouche purchasers.
And ship them to their houses. As in NOW. Right Now. D-Bags attract other D-Bags who'd pay just as much to feel Extra Speshul. Get them boasting about it now! Why pay for television time when you can unleash Free, Blubbering Billboards that Won't Shut Up? Honestly!

*My name for it, not theirs

A local renfaire has McDouche level tickets and they get a lot of perks-it's pricey but the faire gives them ways to show off the McDouche standards(special tankard, t-shirt, joust box tickets-it's brilliant marketing.

The few times I have been treated (I can find a better use of MY money) to "Speshul" status somewhere (most recently lounges/suites at hockey games), it's usually disappointing. I've gone for free (thank you, MJP), but to pay extra for the cold chicken fingers (what are we, 4?) and rubbery hot dogs seems extreme. Hyundai Club at Citifield (also courtesy of a friend) literally has people fighting over those little ice cream cups you used to get in kindergarten. I mean pushing, grabbing, yelling for crappy ice cream and Costco cookies...

I have to admit the few times I pay wayyyyyy extra to cut the lines at the few parks I've done that....? Were Flippin AWESOME. Just wouldn't do that at Valleyfair, that's all. I'd visit on a Tuesday in early June instead.

Not that I'd go thru that much effort either--as they haven't built a new adult coaster in 10 years. Just giving an example.

I hear ya. I was commenting I guess more on the food options you mentioned. I don't go to amusement parks anymore, so I don't have a place where I can get "cut the line" passes.
