Re: Chadster's Vacation Adventures: Bay Beach Amusement Park

I live and work in green bay. My favorite pastime is what I refer to as an "epic lunch" in which while in business clothes, drive on my lunch to the park across town, get one, sometimes two rides in, hit a drive-thru and still make it back to back to my desk within an hour! I love it! Where else can you do that?

I have to admit this is the first time I've heard of the park, but it looks like a great little family-style attraction! and they have a SCAT!! [one of my all-time favorite midway vomitorium...er..attractions], which means I have to go there while visiting the area next year. Thanks for a great TR :)

Re: Chadster's Vacation Adventures: Little Amerricka!!

Postby chadster » Mon Oct 31, 2011 1:55 pm

After a great trip to Bay Beach, it was time to make the drive across the state to Marshall, WI to hit up another small park, Little Amerricka! Situated off in what amounts to farmland in the middle of nowhere, this little park has a few surprises.

The first bit of advice I can give everyone is to call before you go. Their website indicated they were closing at 6pm, but nope, they were closing at 5pm. With me arriving at 4pm, I had to get a move on. So, I bought 10 tickets and started running to the rides.

On this, the 10th of September, the park was busy. It has a ghetto atmosphere that I, for some reason, really like. I also like the fact that the parks rides have been installed and refurbed by the owner himself. Chalk one up for the little guy!

So no more chit chat, lets get to it!

Welcome to Little Amerricka! This is where you enter the park.

EVIL!!! The little balloon thingy in the background was interesting to watch. But times a wasting, did I mention that you should call before you go? I'm told the park has a history of changing its closing time just for the heck of it.

We will start off the this adventure by going in here.

Ok, after a few bumps and brusies, it was time to embark on something a little less abbrasive.
Little Maerricka 042.JPG
So I rode this, and banged my knees. So, it was time to get find something else, perhaps something tame.
Little Maerricka 045.JPG
So, I hopped aboard the powered monorail and took a journey around the park. I have to say, the overview the monorail gives you is quite nice and covers most every aspect of the park.

Hello Mad Mouse, I will collect you in just a bit.

This would be the parking lot, in the middle of a farm.

The putt-putt course looked rather nice.

Over here is a log flume that the park recently purchased. Locals tell me that the park owner estimates the concrete cost alone to be around $1million and not to look for it to be built out anytime soon. I'm told the owner likes to buy older rides, tinker with them, then put them together. The tinkering may take 2 years or 5 years.

Water boats for your pleasure. You can buy single ride tickets or a play all day wristband.
Little Maerricka 061.JPG
The train takes you back in this little town village. I was told I had to take the train if i didn't do anything else. I was told correct. When you come to the park, don't just credit run it, take the train too!
Little Maerricka 062.JPG
And we're traveling, and we're traveling....

I discovered they have an IP to use Mario on their tilt.

You are not an amusement park if you don't have horses chasing themselves.
Little Maerricka 069.JPG
If you happen to die on one of the rides, you should get a reduction in funeral costs.
Little Maerricka 084.JPG
And we will end our journey on the monorail with a view of credit whore park. I mean the kiddie coaster. With other rides in the middle of it.
Little Maerricka 093.JPG
I missed it :(
Little Maerricka 096.JPG
They also had some decent bumper cars. Nothing, however, beats the ones at Oaks Amusement Park. Nothing.
Little Maerricka 097.JPG
NOTED!

We take a break in this awesome report for a NERD SHOT of the Mad Mouse. We now return you to your regularly scheduled awesome trip report.

From this angle, the cars really do look like a pissed off mouse.

Here is a series of action shots for you.

For a small ride, it is kinda fun.

Well that's it, I conquered 8 rides in one hour, but really, you should plan about 2 hours at the park to really be able to relax and enjoy. Thanks Little Amerricka!

So, where do I head next??? I bet you can guess! Until next time!

Someday, I hope to find my own Indiana Jones.

I love Little Amerricka. Yeah it's ghetto, it may not have a lot of rides and it's in the middle of nowhere, but it sure is fun!

BTW, I bet I know you're next adventure!!

I love Little Amerricka! For such a small park there really is quite a bit to do there, lots of small town charm. That train ride is the best! Super long through random farms, gotta love it.

Stupid question, but why is it spelled that way. Also that little twisty slide coaster thing is crazy. Looks photoshopped.

I'm not sure, but my guess it has something to do with being in Wisconsin. ;)

It's not. It is a death ride though.
