It's possible to fit a relatively large woodie within 1.5 acres or less (Boardwalk Bullet fits within an acre, I think). But the only problem with that is that BGE isn't going to install a woodie until mammalian farm animals sprout wings.

I've gone pantless!

^Chickens are farm animals. Chickens have wings. Ergo, BGE will build a woodie next year.

Please try to be more specific. ;)

1.5 acres? I call Monaco!

The biggest little country in Europe
Monaco is tiny: just 430 acres, or less than a square mile in size. Only 5,070 of its 29,972 residents are Monégasque citizens; the rest are French, Italian, and other foreigners who have come to Monaco for sun, fun, and tax breaks.


Hey, they'd only be 428.5 acres off then. ;)

Heh, overlooked that.

Pigs just seemed too cliché. The post has been clarified.

I'll take Vatican City then.

Vatican City is still over 100 acres.

Screamscape is guessing that the 1.5 arces are being using for a Sesame Street children's area.

Screamscape wrote:2009 - New Land / Sesame Street - Rumor - (3/6/08) According to this article the new proposed expansion land at Busch Gardens is actually near the main entrance, a small 1.5 acre site between England’s Skyride station and Escape From Pompeii that was once used as a petting zoo long ago but typically has been used in past couple of years as the Wicked Woods haunt for Howl-O-Scream.
While it would be fun to have a new country location like the rumored Spain or Greek concepts, given the small size of the location, the lack of anything taller than 60 feet added in to the fact that it’s very close to the park’s 4D Theater, I’ve got to guess that this could be a new Sesame Street themed kiddie land that would launch in 2009 along with the debut of the same Lights, Camera, Imagination in 4-D film opening at SeaWorld San Diego later this month. The fact that the park’s other kiddie area, Land of the Dragons, is on the opposite side of the park also makes the area ripe for a new kid friendly area closer to the main gate. This also matches up with earlier rumors that claimed the Sesame Street 4D film was expected to come in 2008, but obviously these plans seem to have been delayed.

So it'll be Sesame Street themed to Monaco then.

I vote for "Sesame Street Wicked Woods," with Big Bird as Jack the Ripper, Bert and Ernie as Druids, and Elmo as a body snatcher.
