Today's update comes from a little, city owned park that is typically off the radar for most....Bay Beach park. The crown jewel of this park is it's only coaster the zippin pippen. This coaster was located in Tennessee years years ago, and when the park closed Bay beach purchased the coaster. What's so special about the zippin pippen to where they would move it all the way up to Green Bay you may ask....well, it was the kings favorite ride. He actually rented the ride out for himself and some friends, and rode the thing for hours. He lost his belt buckle on the coaster, and it was returned to him the next day. I guess Elvis wss a coaster nerd.
The rest if this park has a decent selection of flats and kiddy rides. Tickets were only 25 cents each, and it only took 4 tickets to ride the coaster. We only had a chance to spend 2 hours at this park, and could have spent much longer as it's just a fun place to be and it's cheap!
Onto the pictures...
Here is the entrance to bay beach. Free parking, and free to get in. Think knobles
I bought $10 worth of tickets, and we had some left after 2 hours. Heck of a deal.
With tickets in hand, we headed right to the star attraction.
Not only was this a historical coaster, but it was running like new.
The coaster only runs 1 train, but does have a transfer track to add a 2nd.
The coaster and the park is located right on the water.
This park has several classic rides.
Each ride had a history marker on it that tells you about the ride and where it came from.
As you van see, the park was doing quite well.
You can see the scrambler here. They also has a falling star ride that I failed to take a picture of.
The scat is just an evil ride that I can never pass up. This one was running in insane mode.
That's all from Bay beach. Next stop is Six Flags Great America.

I do agree that Worlds of Fun definitely has the worst employees of any park I've been to. They are super slow, they look angry all the time, and they spend half of the time standing around talking to each other.

It is nice to see that you did a photo trip report for Bay Beach! You don't see a lot of them! Seems like such a wonderful park, I just wish it wasn't so far away, especially since they have that awesome little wooden roller coaster and also one of my favorite flat rides: Falling Star.

Thank you. The coaster may not be the biggest, but it sure was fun. I definitely recommend checking out this park if your ever in the green bay area.
I'm envious of your Scat ride. The church fair I recently went to with my cousin had one of these, but rain in the forecast kept all rides closed that day. Only time I've ever seen one in person, so I was bummed I didn't get the chance to ride it.
