Strickers Grove's 12 rides and two coasters sit in about 10 acres. It's one 100 yard strip with rides on both sides and the big coaster on the end of it.

The place overal isn't that small, there is picnicing for 3-5 thousand. A huge hall a ballfield and a 1.2 mile train ride. Open to the public every fourth of July and the second sunday in august.

Ride of Steel's avatar It seems nice enough to run for more than 2 years a day. Any idea?

It's a park that normally sells it's weekends to corporations and churches and the like. In the winter they hold wedding receptions and Meanest man contest in the hall.

The last couple years he has added a extra public day in sept or oct.

Camp Snoopy in the Mall of America is 7 acres and would be considered by many a full amusement park.

If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

Then there's also Memphis Kiddie Park close to Cleveland, Ohio. Though it is almost all for the kids, it does have a kiddie coaster, miniature golf, 13 "kiddie rides, and an arcade. That place is REALLY small. It was also the small park most people didn't know that was included in the ACE event this past year. Some people just like stopping by it just to get there coaster count up. Fun little park for little ones though.

Take away the waterpark side and Delgrossos isn't very big :)

Memphis Kiddie Park has my vote. Maybe two acres including the putt putt course and the coaster and train around the perimeter.

What about Little-A-Mericka, that seemed really small when the wife and I went for our honeymoon?

When you factor in all of the land owned by Little A-Merrick-A (including the three mile train ride) the park is actually quite large.

I guess that depends on how you define an amusement park. For example..there are some minor league baseball "stadiums" that have amusement rides. Some local malls have rides like carousels in them...I doubt many of us consider them amusement parks, but some are parks (Camp Snoopy @ Mall of America). How about the top of the Stratosphere??? Is that an amusement park? If so, how do you place a number on it's size. If you only consider the area of land occupied by the rides, it takes up no land. How about Jeepers?!?! They call themselves an "indoor amusement park" and they have small locations.

All I am trying to say is that there are many different possible answers depending on how you want to define things.

No further explanation needed. I'm hopelessly lost.

There are many ocean side amusement parks that pack all the features of an amusement park into a very small area. For example, Ocean City Maryland has both Trimpers and Ocean City Pier that pack in a full amusement park in 1-2 acres.

Smaller than Camp Snoopy would be the 5 acres of Adventuredome in Vegas. It's pretty cramped in there, under the Circus Circus dome with flats stacked next to flats and a coaster and shoot the chutes and tower ride to provide some more notable thrills.
