Hello, welcome to Coasterpedia! Thanks for your contributions. I was reading the pages you linked to, very interesting - I had not come across that website before.

I did some research into the beach a while ago, and visited it last year. I ended up getting some info mixed up with the Butlins nearby, and as you can see the pages are incomplete.

Thanks again Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 15:08, 20 February 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Hello, After some thought, I think we should go with "Scrambler" for this one. Yes it's Americanised but from reading about the ride type, the first name used was Scrambler. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 19:40, 6 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Thanks for adding that info, I forgot to check the spreadsheet. Since I'm finished my exams now I will hopefully be editing on Tilt-A-Wiki and Coasterpedia much more.Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 12:04, 15 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Visual editor

Hi Jason,

just writing to let you know I have added the Visual Editor to Tilt-A-Wiki and Coasterpedia, it is under the "edit" button whereas the old source-code editor is under "edit source". Unfortunately it does not work for the "article creator" yet but it can be used for editing existing pages. IMO the source code editor is quicker, but I am very familiar with wikitext. I did find the visual editor more convenient on an iPad though, since it's harder to add square/curly brackets and the other symbols required for formatting.

Go Karts

Just noticed you added a bunch of Go Karts, but not the Go Karts at Lightwater Valley, was it intentional? Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 13:20, 26 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Site merging proposal

Dear Jason,

As you're a regular editor here I want to let you know about some changes to the site. I am seriously considering merging the Coasterpedia and Tilt-A-Wiki sites. Check out Coasterpedia:Site merger and please leave any thoughts over on that page.

Best wishes! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 13:23, 28 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Completed attractions list

Hello, I noticed you removed this list Often big lists like that are difficult to maintain, was this your motivation for removing it? If you like we can always add a "This list is not exhaustive" or "This list is incomplete" notice instead. It's up to you! A page like Bennett isn't so bad though as the company doesn't exist any more so the list won't be expanding. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 01:21, 5 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

That's what I would do too. List of products on the company page then list of copies built on each product page. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 14:33, 5 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Referencing from books & magazines


If you want to add a book/magazine reference while in the source editor, select "Cite" then in the dropdown select "cite book". The "cite journal" template doesn't exist, so just use book for both. Let me know if you run into any problems - I very rarely reference books. And yes while this isn't a great time to be a roller coaster enthusiast it's the perfect time to do some wiki editing!

Quickfire edits

Thanks for updating the Tivoli Manufacturing links. There is actually a piece of software called AutoWikiBrowser which can do that sort of repetitive editing for you, you're welcome to use it or leave a message on my talk page and I can use it to make the edits. Or of course you can do it manually it's up to you! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 13:45, 6 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Infobox ride

Just a heads up, for both Template:Infobox roller coaster and Template:Infobox ride, rather than include units within the parameter, just include numbers and for rides outwith the US add |units=metric and the box will know you're using m and km/h rather than feet and mph. The exception to this is power, which is kW on all articles. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 13:38, 27 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Midnight Express

Hello, I just wanted to run this one past you as an anonymous editor updated the owner of this ride recently. Midnight Express (Ashley Rogers) Thanks for adding all those photos! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 23:17, 14 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Tick Tack at Yokohama Dreamland

It did not open in 1980, It opened in March 1989, How did you get these information from?

Yokohama Dreamland's Daddy Long Legs

I'm RollerCoasterFan1986. Show me proof there was a daddy long legs at the park?

Approximately 2/3 of the way down this page: and towards the bottom of this page:

Manufacturers of magikland

Where did you got these info from?

A wonderful thing called Google. Ever heard of it? Jason foulkes (talk) 15:11, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Proof? RollerCoasterFan1986 (talk) 16:06, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, RollerCoasterFan1986, please see Help:Cite. I know Jason has done a lot of research and this isn't easily citeable as it's been amassed over time, cross-referenced from park maps, etc. In this case, a search for "Magikland Phillippines Zamperla" returned this webpage.

UFO at Darien Lake

Yes, the park was called Darien lake when the ride closed, but don't the ride and park pages just default to the current names? Year in coasters/rides does depend on what the ride/park was called back then, but I don't think/know if the main pages do, seen plenty of pages that didnt get this treatment. QDude24 (Talk | contribs) 21:15, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I think it's one of these things that we never specified. But now that Jason has made most of the ride pages, and I think he always did it that way (?), most pages probably follow that pattern of using the park name at time of closure. I think it makes sense actually. Page names should use the latest park name though for ease of searching and linking. What do you think? Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 19:23, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
