Bay Beach Amusement Park is the 9th oldest continuously operating amusement park in the U.S. and is tied for 21st in the world.

The Jack Rabbit (1901-1922) and The Greyhound Roller Coasters (1929-1936) were the first two at Bay Beach. They were designed by John Miller the premier coaster designer of that era.

The Zippin Pippin was also designed by John Miller and built in 1923. It operated at Libertyland in Memphis, TN until the park closed in October 2005.

It was built using 335,000 board feet of NEW treated lumber; 105 tons of structural steel, 46,000 bolts and ½ mile of track (approx. 8 football fields).

The first drop is approx. 70 feet, and is called “the Monkey Face”. Ride time is approx. 1 minute 35 sec. with 30 riders per train.

The cost to ride the Zippin Pippin is $1 (4 current Bay Beach ride tickets).

Not the traditional venue, but what a fun place to have our reception. The team was great and we had a wonderful time.

We rented the Pavilion Dance Hall within Bay Beach Amusement Park. It is a gem of a venue! A super large space with an gorgeous interior. Don't expect a ton of help from Bay Beach itself (it is a city owned and operated park after all), but they were helpful in getting some electrical problems situated. During our transition time (we had the ceremony and reception in the same place), our guests went and rode rides, checked out the Wildlife sanctuary across the street, explored downtown (minutes away), and went to Lambeau field (about 15 minutes away). Our guests loved it. The only real draw back was the heat (mid-July, no air-conditioning--our fault), but people were able to get away out of the heat, unlike if it were an outside wedding. The Bay Beach Pavilion Dance hall is really a hidden gem in Green Bay. Our spaced looked beautiful! We had about 150 people, so there was plenty of space for dining tables, ceremony chairs, and a dance space! Do rent the space for the day before so you can set up and get the rehearsal done!
