Currently, the tracks are being laid for a second train that will take riders along the shoreline and under the Zippin Pippin roller coaster.

A bigger concession stand will also open up this summer.

Another ride is also in the works; a newer and bigger Ferris wheel, which is expected to be open in 2019.

Kids we spoke with love the tradition of coming out to Bay Beach.

"First time I was here I was two or three years old, been going here a long time, so it's fun to come back every once in a while," said Raphael Moreno.

There is no admission cost to the Park and ride tickets are 25 cents a piece.
