Go Pack go! Thanks for the report Chad and Jo, glad you guys had a good time. I'm also glad to hear that they're expanding the stadium! Tickets to Packer games are so hard to come by. Season tickets have been sold out since 1960 and there are over 86000 names on the waitlist today!
Most of the people who clean up after game day are school kids. While the team does pay for their services, the money usually goes to their school club, etc.
^Yeah, season tickets and maybe individual tickets might be hard to come by, but they offer lots of packaged deals. Friends of my parents go several times a year doing this. Obviously, if its a game against Chicago or Minnesota you're going to pay more. I think the cheapest package deal starts around $500 a ticket, BUT this includes good seats, hotel for a night, transportation to the stadium from the hotel, tailgating before the game (with all you can eat AND drink mind you). Plus, for an extra $20-30 you can upgrade your seat to one in the first 5 rows behind the goal posts. Mom and I are going to go someday, we just haven't picked a day yet to go!
The time we went, I believe we used StubHub (the other person bought the tickets, so I'm not sure what site they used). If it's not a high demand game, like Bears or Vikings, single game tickets didn't seem that hard to get.
That package deal sounds pretty awesome. If I was going to go again, I'd look into one of those.
Always trying to keep YOU entertained! Now with more Ice Bat!

Exactly, Jo was the one who brought the tour up to me literally the day before and I was like sure, why not. I didn't care for the HoF part so that was skipped. But, speaking of Bay Beach....
After a lovely tour and a stop for Mexican food, we arrived at Bay Beach Amusement Park in you guessed it, Green Bay, WI. So, why did I mention that we stopped for food, TMI you say? Well, I mention it because we thought we'd have to pay theme park prices at, well, a theme park. NOT! Food and drink were right inline with your favorite fast food joint or cheaper, and, it looked and smelt good! Next time, I'll eat there and try it out!
So, lets get down to it. The park is, yes, small (as you know, I love smaller parks) and caters to families. Speaking of catering, they had a wedding or something going on while we were there so they also do special events. The flat rides were nothing special with your off the shelf Scrambler, Tilt, Ferris Wheel, and Train, but they did have a Yo-Yo, so they get bonus points there.
As for Zippin Pippin, it's a solid ride with a nice surprise at the end. It's certainly a welcome and needed addition to the park. They were running both trains and for a shorter ride, not much wait time in the brakes. They were also chewing through the line at a steady rate. With the Pippin all by it's lonesome at the far end of the park, they have left themselves with an excellent opportunity for expansion.
Here we are at Bay Beach Amusement Park! Inside the building you will find food and an event hall.
To the left of the building, you will find a place to buy stuff to stuff you suitcase with.
On the other side of the gift shop, you will find the ticket booth. Note the prices, crazy cheap!
After buying tickets, you run into the train depot.
And here would be the train, in the depot.
Ride safety signage. Wait, .50 for a ride on a Tilt-A-Whirl? Are we back in the 60's?
Seriously, the pricing blew my mind, in a good way.
For you wheel of ferris lovers.
A very colorful scrambler.
Hey, what do you say we play a little game. Use one of the following photos on the scambler and write your own caption.
This was well, awkward. I guess its like a super round up, only not.
And if you want to bang people in cars, they have that here.
But I say, it's time to go here instead.
Yes! THANK YOU!
Our train has arrived, lets get in. Errrrrmmm, I thought I read they had new trains.....
HAHA, it's the car Elvis sat in, and you can too!
As you can tell, she's ready to roll.
Ok, time to go ride! I've been looking forward to this one!
Lift hill action.
Transfer track action.
Out the back door action.
Forward motion action!
Elivs would be proud. They did a very nice job re-creating this ride.
Serioulsy, if you are expecting high thrill and intensity, you won't find it here. What you will find is a solid, fun ride thats a very nice addition to the park which should draw visitors for many years to come. And for $1, you can't go wrong!
And with that, I say thanks to Bay Beach for a lovely afternoon, I will for sure drop by next time I'm in town and you should too!

I really enjoyed Bay Beach. I do hope that the park adds a few more rides, even if it's just a small kiddie coaster. It's a really beautiful park too. I need to go back up there next summer. I still have the tickets in my car. If they didn't change the color, then I'll use them!
