I have Kiddie-Park right next to me with an real coaster that cant be more than 2 or 3 acres.
Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid.
There's always the mini parks at NY's Coney Island. There are a lot of parks under the Coney Island umbrella and some of the small ones are really small (like less than an acre or 2). And to answer the above question, a park pretty much just has to have rides in order for it to be considered an amusement park in my opinion, such that the guests are "amused". But I guess that's where it gets vague, like what constitutes a ride and how many must they have for it to be a park.

There is a place here in Omaha called Boulder Creak Amusement Park full name real name etc. Yet the closest thing to a flat ride even is the rock climbing wall. It has a real small arcade 3 different putt putt golf courses and some batiing cages. LoL not sure on the size but I'm sure with a little research I could find out for Yall.
Isn't Sylvan Beach, NY really really small? Looking at an overhead sattelite map of the park it looks like their rides are crammed into a small parking lot with a dark ride & coaster setup in that small space.
Hmmm, the Strat has a little of everything.....a coaster, drop tower, 2 other attractions, gift shop, restaurant, and a motel on the property. They have a pay-one-price for the rides or you can buy individual tickets.
I would agree it just may be the smallest, yet tallest. :-)
All they need know is a few "midway" type games but not the basketball thing......that would not go over well (no pun intended).
