One way of life is to just on a roller coaster.

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.

Stricker's Grove is pretty small. Not sure about the acreage. Gotta ask Cinci-area people.

Outdoor parks often include their parking lots in the acreage and it adds up.

Most indoor parks tend to be quite small.

Circus Circus Adventuredome = 5 acres

Camp Snoopy at Mall of America = 7 acres

I'm sure you may find some outdoor parks with just a few kiddie attractions that may be smaller but these two have coasters and an assortment of flats.

See theres the question. Does a park need coasters to be an amusement park? If a park has coasters but no flats, is it an amusement park (Mt. Olympus), except the disk-o. But, thats what I'm asking...

i'm not sure what to put here..

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.

DelGrosso's couldn't be any more than 10 acres, including parking.

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.

DawgByte II's avatar 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.

Yeah, Sylvan Beach's amusement park is tiny. I'm not sure about the total size though.

Some of the smallest "parks" I have been to are Belmont Park, Timber Falls, Deno's, Gillians Wonderland, Sylvan Beach and without any scientific research I'd say Belmont Park is the smallest.

rollergator's avatar Uncle Bernie's, hands down...

But it's an AMUSEMENT park, not a theme park... :-P

Stratosphere Tower would also be in the running. They've squeezed 4 rides up there.

DawgByte II's avatar But is the Stratosphere Tower a park....
...or an attraction?

Sunday, August 7, 2005 4:44 PM
My vote (for the UK anyhow) goes with M&Ds or Metroland :)

coasterqueenTRN's avatar 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).

Does anyone know how big Fun Spot is? It's pretty small but it's been a long while since I've been there so I'm not sure on an acreage estimate.
It's still me, here from the beginning back in 1999. Add 1500+ posts to the number I have in the info section if you care about such things.

The train conductor at Stricker's said that the park was 25 acres. That also included land not currently used as a park, a baseball diamond and may have included the parking lot.

World of Mazes in Townville, PA consists of a giant 2-level walkthrough maze, mini-golf, an Eli wheel, about 3 kiddie rides, and a row of carnival games. It's probably not even an acre in size.
