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.

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.
