If this stretch of warm weather we're currently experiencing doesn't get you excited for summer than I don't know what will... maybe this. Valleyfair's latest attraction North Star has been named one of the best amusement park rides in the nation.
The North Star reaches heights of 230 feet, coupled with intense speed was enough to vote it the fourth best new amusement park ride of 2017 in a USA Today 10 best contest.
USA TODAY writes, "You haven't experienced a swing ride until you've ridden it 230 feet in the air,"
The North Star opened in May of 2017, sitting near the Steel Venom coaster at the front of the park. It is the only ride of its type in the region, elevating riders way up in the air then spinning them around at 40 mph in swings.
Valleyfair was very excited about the news, as well they should be!
