Small park Love

Monday, September 23, 2002 3:36 PM
As odd as it sounds I can't find and don't remember any topics on this. I want to know what your favorite small park is to escape the corporate park crowds and just "enjoy a day at the park." I got to say that my favorite small park is Indiana Beach and if I got to choose any small park to go to next, I think I'd choose Lake Compounce. What's your favorite small park and why?

Well, I've only visited a few small parks, but I'd love to get out to Conneaut and Knoebels. Phoenix, Twister and Blue Streak look like top-notch woodies.

I would like to get to just about all of them. The only "Small" Park i have ever been to is Idewild Park in PA. Coaster wise, all the had was a miniature woodie(no more than 50ft), and a wild mouse.

I can't wait to get back to Knoebel's for PPP. That place amazes me. It has so much too offer and one of the greatest woodies in the world, Twister not Phoenix ;)

All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. ;)

I love going to Conneaut Lake Park. Ever since going to Paint It Blue this past spring I grew to love that place. It just seems like home to me now. I can't get enough of it. I hope they make that a yearly event like they said they might. I love helping with park maintenance wherever I can!

What would we all do if roller coasters became non-existent???

Definately Knoebels!! I absolutely love it, especially since Im only 3 hours away! Its great old rides, amazing woodies, and just an incredible traditional park feeling. Its really a park where you can take it easy! Too bad I cant make it to PPP :(

Ah, Big Chief's is a great place too but Kiddie Land has more memories for me... I've made hundreds and hundreds of trips around their log flume. What an amazing place...

I'm much more of an Amusement Park enthusiast then a thrill-seeking coaster type. The parks tend to have a richer history and usually do a better job of preserving it (intentionally or not) than the larger parks. I like looking at the old quirky rides - even kiddy rides. I don't think I can choose a favorite small park. They all offer something different.

The only "corporate" park I visited this year was Kings Island. The rest ranged from Idlewild (biggest "small park" ) to Bushkill - a true hidden and tiny gem.

-----------------
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

Lake Winnie(pesaukah). Why? It's the only one I've been to, but I had a blast. It is one of the many small parks featured in the PBS show about small amusement parks. It's a must-watch for anyone here!

My two favorite coasters are both named Superman.
Nitro, Gemini, Laser, Ice, Thunder...The American Gladiators!

Knott's Berry Farm before Cedar Fair bought them. As for a park that still is a small park. I would have to pick Knoebel's. It is so different from anything else.

Kennywood, or Indiana beach.

I know Kennywood doesn't seem small to alot of people but to me it is.

I would prefer going to a park where I ride more then I stand in line.
