The frights and scares were supposed to begin at Valleyfair this weekend as it kicked off it's annual transformation into ValleySCARE at the popular park... however, something else super scary happened instead.

The Shakopee Police Department responded to a fight at Valleyfair Saturday night that closed the park early. Officers at Valleyfair helped usher everyone out safely and there are no reports of injuries.

According to the Shakopee Police Department, multiple fights broke out at the park making it "difficult to control." It wasn't long before word began to spread across social media on the incident:


Shakopee Police later released a statement early Sunday morning with more details of the events that caused the early closure at ValleySCARE Saturday night:

With everything that's happened over the years with mass shootings and other tragedies across the globe, I'm thankful the brave men and women at the SPD responded the way they did and diffused the situation before it got any worse.
