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).
