I added a bunch of attractions to the Six Flags Over Georgia page both old and new and many have all disappeared. What the heck? I used to work there I know they are legit attractions. You can find many of the attractions' info on Six Flags' website as well as wikipedia and other sources. I'm not sure what happened here. I feel as though the hour or two of work I put into editing the page was for nothing. Seriously thinking about deactivating my account if my input isn't wanted here.

I've restored the rides now, we can work from there to remove the smallest ones that aren't notable. Pinging Jason foulkes and Loch Ness who also edited this page.

Thempark78 I don't suppose you know more about Arrow Dynamics and Blue Hawk, Ninja at Six Flags St. Louis is said to be an Arrow coaster completed by Vekoma, my understanding with Blue Hawk is that it's a Vekoma project through and through.

Hello, sorry about this and thanks for posting here, as I think at least some of the rides should not have been removed Hello, sorry about this and thanks for posting here, as I think at least some of the rides should not have been removed.

Certainly the Flying Dutchman, Cable cars, tower, should have been kept. I am currently working on a list of rides, at User:Lachlan/rides, at the bottom there is a list of rides the wiki hasn't been recording. From memory this would include the Frog Hopper, kiddie roundabouts, etc.



I'm writing this on my phone, I'll take a closer look when I'm on my PC.

Best wishes,

Ah, should have also mentioned I took out the bit about Ninja becoming Blue Hawk and Wile E Coyote becoming Joker because the data tables document the physical rides, rather than the rethemes - Ninja and Wile E Coyote of course are still operating. But I also forgot to leave an edit summary for that :|

Why would any ride be more notable than another one? One ride may be more notable to one person than another ride to another person. This doesn't make any sense why all the rides can't be named. I mean if this is solely a site about coasters, I can understand, but take out all rides that aren't coasters. Otherwise, it looks like a Wikipedia type page that gives people info about theme parks and withholding rides because of the opinion of the author is only doing a disservice to the reader. I hope that makes sense.

I see where you're coming from. This website used to just document roller coasters but since merged with another wiki, dedicated to flat rides, so now it covers both. We started with a very broad scope of every ride. However following some discussions, it was decided to omit the smallest "juvenile" rides due to the very large numbers of them, how similar they look and how often they change hands which all made tracking them very difficult. Bear in mind that this was largely from a British fairs perspective. I started the list User:Lachlan/rides to track these, and also track the names of other rides to try to establish a common naming system but it's still far from complete.

The scope can always change in the future depending on what the community wishes for, but personally I think it would be better to focus on the larger rides first before expanding it further.
