Some Wikipedians have formed a project to aid in the creation and maintenance of articles related to amusement parks. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions. The focus of this project is to help standardize and channel the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in participating. If you would like to help, please see the Tasks listed below and consider adding your user name to the Participants list.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask for help on the project's talk page. Thanks for stopping by!

Project scopeEdit

The ultimate goal of this WikiProject is to improve the quality of articles relating to amusement parks and attractions. In order to accomplish this goal, Wikipedia will need to improve coverage on notable amusement parks around the world (past and present), as well as on other topics related to the amusement park industry. Articles covering types of rides (e.g., log flumes, roller coasters, carousels, etc.), actual rides themselves, ride manufacturers, and pioneers in the industry are just a few examples of the topics within the scope of this project.
