Assessment Assessment

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Amusement Parks. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please see the #Tasks listed below, or inquire on the talk page.

Project scope[edit]

The ultimate goal of this WikiProject is to improve the quality of articles relating to amusement and theme parks. In order to accomplish this goal, Wikipedia will need an article on every amusement park in the world (as well as parks that are no longer operating) as well as articles on everything related to amusement parks. This includes, types of rides (i.e. log flumes, roller coasters, carousels, etc.), people involved in developing rides and amusement parks and actual ride installations.

Nominate a new Wikipedia amusement park article for DYK

If you start a new article, and the new article contains an interesting or unusual fact, suggest it for the Did you know? box on the Main Wikipedia page. DYK has a 72 hr. time limit from the creation of the article.

Clear backlog

These articles need coordinates. They can be taken from RCDB.

There is also a list of 500 articles here without infoboxes. The appropriate infobox template needs to be added.
