Valleyfair Family Amusement Park opened in 1976 in Shakopee, Minnesota. In 1978, Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, acquired Valleyfair, which allowed for accelerated park expansion. Currently, it is the largest amusement park in the upper Midwest with over 75 rides on 90 acres, including a Soak City Water Park and Planet Snoopy. Valleyfair also hosts corporate events like Family Fun Days for local companies. Events like these let employees bring their families to the park as guests of their employer. Sperry-UNIVAC was a computer division created when Remington Rand merged with the Sperry Corporation in 1955. For three decades, computer-related companies and their spinoffs boosted the Minnesota economy. Sperry would drop the UNIVAC name in 1984.
