City of Green Bay approves purchase of Zippin Pippin.

March 5, 2010

Following a visit to Memphis by Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt, the Green Bay City Council voted last week to purchase the Zippin Pippin roller coaster and move to their city’s Beach Bay Amusement Park.

The City of Green Bay will issue $2.4 million in bonds and raise $600,000 in private donations to acquire the ride’s name, signage, usable wood, and other materials, and reconstruct it there.  The Zippin Pippin’s first ride in Green Bay is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2011.

More details on the Green Bay City Council vote can be found at the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s website.
