Ride experience[edit]

Please convert 700 tons into metric tons.

Tried to use the convert template but I can't figure out what parameters to use (do you know?).--Dom497 (talk) 18:43, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
It has been done. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 23:11, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

"Also, the trains for the roller coaster were manufactured in Switzerland." Is it possible to determine the company of origin as well?

I could be B&M themselves but its hard to know for sure...there is no reliable sources that gives an specifics.--Dom497 (talk) 18:43, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
That is fine. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 23:11, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Additional Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Compliance with other aspects of the Manual of Style, or the Manual of Style mainpage or subpages of the guides listed, is not required for good articles.
  2. ^ Either parenthetical references or footnotes can be used for in-line citations, but not both in the same article.
  3. ^ This requirement is significantly weaker than the "comprehensiveness" required of featured articles; it allows shorter articles, articles that do not cover every major fact or detail, and overviews of large topics.
  4. ^ Vandalism reversions, proposals to split or merge content, good faith improvements to the page (such as copy editing), and changes based on reviewers' suggestions do not apply. Nominations for articles that are unstable because of unconstructive editing should be placed on hold.
  5. ^ Other media, such as video and sound clips, are also covered by this criterion.
  6. ^ The presence of images is not, in itself, a requirement. However, if images (or other media) with acceptable copyright status are appropriate and readily available, then some such images should be provided.
