Green Bay, Wisconsin
Bay Beach is a traditional amusement park with origins dating back to the 1890s. Situated near the mouth of the Fox River on the east bank as it flows into Green Bay, the amusement park is now municipal run and part of the City of Green Bay Parks, Recreation and Forestry Park System.
The park's origins started in the 1890s when entrepreneur Mitchell Nejedlo purchased the land with the intention of dividing and selling it for summer cottages. Instead, he built a dance hall, bathhouse, and bar for summer visitors and named it Bay View Beach.
In 1901 amusement rides appeared at Bay View Beach starting with a roller coaster and then in 1908 a five-story tall Shoot The Chutes boat debuted. 10 years later new owners purchased the park and in 1920 they donated the park's 11 acres, buildings and attractions to the city of Green Bay.
Bay Beach Amusement Park today is 57 acres and offers visitors 19 rides, including 8 kiddie rides and the park's signature attraction the Zippin Pippin roller coaster.
Additional rides to be enjoyed at the park include Bumper Cars, a 1936 Smith and Smith Chairplane, Ferris wheel, Merry Go-Round, Tilt-a-Whirl and Miniature Train ride.
Parking at and admission to Bay Beach Amusement Park is free. Ride tickets are sold for 25 cents each and rides require one to four tickets each.
