A substantial expansion is coming to Valleyfair for the start of the 2011 season.

Officials for the 34-year-old amusement park in Shakopee will reveal the details on Aug. 6.

The expansion will be of "pretty significant proportions," said Valleyfair spokesman Tom Memmen, declining to give away the specifics. He did say it's something that park operators "hope will encourage families to continue to come out."

"People coming out next year will know that something will be different," he added.

Since its opening, the 90-acre Valleyfair has spent more than $96 million in upgrades, making it the largest amusement park in the Upper Midwest.
