Is it even worth it to...

build a mini ramp or should I go for 2 quarter pipes? I'd love to build a half pipe but I don't have a lot of room to have something like that.

Yes.
Miniramps seem like they would be so much fun.

It really depends on how flat the ground is where you plan on building them. If it's not flat, it would be better to build a miniramp with a 1-2 sheet wide deck that's level; if it is flat, than it would be better to build a pair of quarterpipes, set about 1-2 sheets apart, with 1/8"-1/4" thick stainless plating against the ground so that you don't have to pull up into the tranny.
