AFD at Vichy Water Park


There's an AFD out there at WP:Articles for deletion/Vichy Water Park. I thought y'all at Wikiproject Amusement Parks might be interested in this. — Prodraxis {talkcontributions} (she/her) 00:29, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

Project update: A pre-alpha implementation of APARKS new tabs


Hey everyone! Who ever is here or around. In my sandbox, User:Adog/sandbox2, I have finally finished a general type-out of some of the rough-rough ideas from here, and here. It took six months right? I did not put in the new UI GoneIn60 created into the sandbox yet, however, you can view that right here. In the sandbox, you can find two new banners, a research guide, a perennial sources list, a start to some new changes to the collaboration tab (maybe the barnstars can be merged or a two-level system), and finally the thing that needs to most scrutinization: a non-official APARKS notability guide. I took most of the ideas from previous discussions, and from my readings on guide after guide. It is mostly aimed at new users, and attempts to solve some problems regarding the limbo system of information inclusion. If anything is wrong, feel free to edit it for anything: grammar, functional idea changes, an idea you wanna throw in there, delete whatever does not feel right. Hopefully these can be rolled out by the end of the year, and what else we have not thought of yet.

Forewarn, it is a lot of information. If you are not into that stuff skip this post, but, I would appreciate your help with our project's future. Adog (TalkCont) 11:26, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Draft:American Heartland Theme Park


I recently created a draft for the planned American Heartland Theme Park. Any help would be appreciated. Thriley (talk) 04:57, 3 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Thriley: Hey! I heard about this recently. I am not sure if there is much to add. The amusement park was just announced, and, as such, plans can change massively. It might need to be draft-ified until construction starts because amusement parks can fail before anything physically happens and would not likely pass WP:GNG at this time.

Good article reassessment for Rougarou (roller coaster)

If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 03:37, 26 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Seeking input on a company merger


Six Flags and Cedar Fair are merging, and the combined company will be called Six Flags. Both articles have extensive histories. Merging both articles would be difficult to do. Need some ideas on how to best proceed once the merger is complete in 2024. Please see Talk:Six Flags#Merge with Cedar Fair. Thank you! --GoneIn60 (talk) 17:27, 2 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

I would hold off on a standalone article until the company merge is complete and there are substantial reliable sources. A merger between Six Flags and Cedar Fair is unprecedented in contemporary history, and could collapse before any actual merge occurs or is finished. Adog (TalkCont) 21:53, 2 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
"I would hold off on a standalone article until the company merge is complete"
Correct. This is inherently understood as a precondition before any new article is created or an existing article is renamed. A lot can happen before it's finalized. The linked discussion above (which WP:APARKS members are encouraged to participate in) is more about a preemptive understanding of how something like this is typically handled, and not so much about agreeing on an action that we have to do now. Thanks! --GoneIn60 (talk) 14:11, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hello. A few days ago, I just discovered some IPs who have been blanking some content on Disney and Universal theme park-related articles and templates without explanation (some of the edits can be found here, here, here and here). I suspect it's a dynamic IP, but I could be wrong. Any thoughts on what should be done? Thanks. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 22:18, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

It is likely these edits are by Wikipedia:Long-term_abuse/Quebec_Disney_Hoaxer. To add to this the article Storybook Land Canal Boats seems to have quite a large amount of subtle vandalism as per WP:SNEAKY. Otchiman (talk) 15:36, 9 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

T Express retracking


T Express underwent a retracking a few months or so ago AFAIK by RMC dubbed "the iron rebirth" and I've been wondering whether to list the coaster as a wooden or hybrid coaster on the article itself. Technically cause the retracking involved steel stuff I think you can probably call it a hybrid but rcdb still calls it a wooden coaster. More info can be found here regarding the whole retracking situation. Sorry I wasn't able to let y'all know about this earlier cause I was on a several month long hiatus from content work as I had end-of-school-year projects and exams to deal with (it's not easy to edit Wikipedia while knowing that you have two essays and a research paper due the next day). (delta • tc) 21:19, 9 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I responded there, but in a nutshell, 380 meters of track being converted to steel means that only about 23 percent of the track was impacted. That's less than half, so there's a good chance RCDB won't reclassify this one. We'll have to wait and see, but for now, I think the primary way to list it in the infobox and opening sentence of the lead is "wood" and "wooden roller coaster", respectfully. We can continue the discussion on that talk page. --GoneIn60 (talk) 23:18, 9 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
