Cost Per Person

  • Saturday All Day Admission Ticket Only – $28.25*

* Does not include a 5% processing  fee.


Who would have thought you can go to an amusement park and get a scouting award? The STEM/NOVA activities will focus around the various engineering Nova Awards:

SWING! for Cub Scouts

WHOOSH! for Boy Scouts

HANG ON! for Venturing

We will not be working on the adventure, the merit badges, or exploration requirements (requirement 2) for the awards so Scouts will need to complete those on their own. We will have videos for the reading/ video requirements though I would expect given the opportunity to ride roller coasters or watch videos, many scouts will choose the coasters, so participants may want to do some of those (requirement 1) before hand as well. We will have activities on Friday night and Saturday morning for those that campout and then more activities in the park on Saturday for those coming for just the day.

Please bring a printed copy of the appropriate workbook (from the links above) for the Nova award that you would like to work on.

Sorry, Tiger and Lion Cubs are not eligible to participate in STEM/NOVA program (BSA rules, not ours).

If you have any questions, please call us.

    What of I already have a valley fair season pass? Do I still need to pay the $28.25 for park admission?
