Along for the ride

Greg Metko (left) and Jeremy Paholke, both employees of Neenah-based Miron Construction Co. Inc., install tracks on a replica of the Zippin Pippin roller coaster Wednesday in Green Bay. The 7,000-piece wooden roller coaster in the Bay Beach Amusement Park is a replica of a coaster at Libertyland Amusement Park in Memphis, Tenn. The coaster was known as Elvis' favorite ride after Presley rented the entire Libertyland park one night in 1977 and rode the coaster over and over with friends. Green Bay approved $2.4 million for the project in March, and an additional $600,000 was to be raised privately. (Staff photo by Kevin Harnack)
