Tony's was a small amusement park in Bay City that goes back to the 1950's. A 2010 death notice indicated it was owned by Bob and Ilene Darbee. There was a video made about it that keeps getting taken down so I can't link to that. I will link to a home video posted on YouTube.
I read an article stating that Madonna went here as a kid as she had relatives in Bay City. I am using the address of Bay City State Park as the old amusement park lot is part of it now. The park seemed to disappear from the aerial photos in the late 1990's.
From Answer.com: "Tony's Amusement Park was a small park across the road from the Bay City State Park, in Bay City, Michigan. The park was still open in the 1980s, with a merry-go-round, miniature train, super slide, and games. It has since been demolished and the land is now part of the State Park."
