Table Layouts

What is the standard rollercoaster table layout for theme parks? Also, can we insert images from RCDB? Thanks! Griffysboy (talk) 23:07, 28 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Six Flags Magic Mountain uses the default table layout for example. Sadly we can't just use any photo from rcdb, though you can always get in touch with the photographer for a certain picture to ask if we can use it. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 12:50, 29 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey, Lachlan! I have a question for you! Can you please delete File:Patriot (California's Great America) 2017 03.jpg and File:Patriot (California's Great America) 2017 04.jpg, because I made some major mistakes? Loch Ness (talk) 20:10, 10 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sure, I can delete those for you. Though I'm confused, what mistake did you make? Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 18:06, 12 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

G-Force descriptions

Hello, what happened to the g-force templates in the infoboxes? Even when I use the non-deprecated g-force thing, g-force still doesn't appear. Griffysboy (talk) 19:01, 22 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, thanks for letting me know, there was a problem with the documentation for the template. I'm not sure why, but it didn't match the actual template code. I've changed it now, so in the source code editor you'll want to use the |g-force= parameter, and in VisualEditor the correct parameter is now marked and the wrong one is marked as "deprecated". Hope this helps! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 21:51, 22 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding a Ride here

Can you be able to help me here I was wondering how would I make a page for a amusement ride that I like and I would like to have it on the page for Wisdom Rides page and I don't know how to do that I have my own photos and information on it. Thanks Avalanche92 (talk) 22:51, 22 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Avalanche92, is it Genesis (Wisdom Rides product)? You can start a page by clicking that red link, or you can use the Coasterpedia:Article Creator. For adding photos, you can use Special:UploadWizard. Once you've created a page, I can help you format it and add the relevant categories.

Magic Kass

Can you add Magic Kass to the website? THANKS Sc (talk) 19:58, 9 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I saw you went ahead and added it. In the future, I recommend using the Article Creator, that way, the suitable templates will be pre-loaded. Best wishes Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 21:49, 9 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SeaWorld Ohio

Hi, it may be easier to keep the SeaWorld Ohio page in the Geagua Lake page, but the park did have one ride, Mission: Bermuda Triangle, a simulator ride that opened one year before the park was sold in 2000 CoasterDave (talk) 09:11, 8 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hmm okay, thanks for letting me know. I think that's one to resolve if/when an article on that ride is created! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 21:29, 11 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Don't know what happened to the formatting on my recent submission. Could you have a look please MarkS2022 (talk) 23:39, 1 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, Lachlan! Can you please delete File:Green Lantern (Six Flags Great Adventure) 2011 01.jpg since this is a duplicate? Loch Ness (talk) 19:57, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title translation

Hello. The name of the attraction (Башня свободного падения), translated from Russian (Free Fall Tower). By the principle of operation, this is a Drop tower. Video How to write a ride name?

Is it possible to change username?There is personal information. Am9619175544 (talk) 14:31, 27 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Am9619175544 hello, sorry I don't fully understand your message. If you'd like to create an article for the ride, you can use the article creator. If you let me know what username you would like, I can rename your account for you. Best wishes Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 23:29, 27 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Free Fall Tower(Pax Company)
Is the page title correct?
Video off-ride
If possible please rename my account to Am80567126 Am9619175544 (talk) 07:30, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Am80567126 I've renamed your account. However, older links like those above aren't changed automatically. The new name will be used going forward.
I moved the page to Free Fall Tower (Pax Company product), this is the standard form for product page names. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 11:00, 30 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply] (Pax_Company_product)
1 Is the ride type correct ? video
2 Please make the height in meters in infobox
3 The location column table is not displayed correctly Am80567126 (talk) 19:48, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey @Am80567126 sorry for my slow response. Yes the ride type (Drop Tower) is correct. For the height, the infobox doesn't support multiple heights - it can only be one height. So I've removed the height from the infobox. I have changed the formatting of the Free Fall Tower (Pax Company product) page, here, which should have fixed any errors. Making these tables is very fiddly in the VisualEditor so I recommend using the source code editor. If you'd like a better explanation of what I changed let me know and I'll try my best! Anything else just leave me a message. Thanks Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 22:34, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello. In the name of the park in Russian(Тополя), you need to use translation or transliteration?

Hello, hmmm if there is an official English name we would use that. If not, I am not sure what would be best to be honest. I think translation? --Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 14:31, 28 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you. Am80567126 (talk) 21:10, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you use transliteration as in the website address Am80567126 (talk) 21:16, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah that's helpful. I can't speak Russian so can't help with transliteration/translation. But RCDB has an entry for Parc Topolya and searching that name brings up other results for the park. So I think we should go with that name. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 21:21, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you. Is this name correct Wild Train ( Park Topolya Orenburg)
Please write roller coaster elements for Wild train by video
Onride, Am80567126 (talk) 14:35, 30 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Generally the park name in brackets should match that of the park page, which I have moved to Park Topolya as we discussed. Sometimes we will shorten that in page titles but Park Topolya is already short enough. No need to include Orenburg as there is only one Park Topolya. Hope that makes sense! I will move the page for you Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 14:41, 30 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Elitch Gardens Turn of the Century


I work as a ride op at Elitch Gardens and have operated Turn of the Century. I know that the Vekoma Flying Carousel is not a very well known model, but if you wish the next time I go into work I can offer proof that the ride is indeed a Vekoma. This was actually pointed out to me by one of my fellow ops, who saw the ride incorrectly listed on the wiki as a Zierer Waveswinger. If you wish to include the admin on this discussion, you may feel free to do so.

Wikimapia images

Hello, is it possible to use images from Wikimapia? Am80567126 (talk) 05:37, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Am80567126, after a bit of digging it seems like yes, the images there are uploaded under Creative Commons. I will work out the best way to upload these, and get back to you Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 19:51, 8 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is that right?

File:Drop tower Ekaterinburg.jpeg Am80567126 (talk) 06:17, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Am80567126 Yes that looks good. Unfortunately there isn't an easy way to add a "from Wikimapia" button, so you'll have to keep adding the URL and license like you did for those two photos. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 16:11, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, which ride type does ride Hip-hop belong to. There are many of them in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan.There are several manufacturers. I think it may be necessary to create a new ride type if the existing ones do not fit.

@Am80567126 The rides in the first two videos follow the same movements as a Top Spin, albeit with far fewer seats. I am not sure about the other three. They look absolutely crazy! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 17:26, 9 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, but the Top Spin has a platform with a lot of seats. I think we need to create a ride type. Am80567126 (talk) 06:35, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Am80567126 So I posed the question on our Discord and someone pointed out the ones in the first two videos look like the "Gyro Drop" from Moser Rides. Still not sure about the other three (unless we just count them as a variant on the Gyro Drop...) Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 20:52, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK let's use this ride type. I believe it is possible to apply all types to Gyro Loop. Am80567126 (talk) 09:49, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding photos

I don't know how to add photos to pages. Can you explain to me how to do it please? KingofMagic (talk) 15:23, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @KingofMagic I just saw your reply on your talk page. So if they are your own photos you can upload them using Special:UploadWizard and then insert them into articles. If they aren't your pictures, you can link to them (use the chain link icon in the edit toolbar, or just pase the URL), or send them to me on Discord, but we can't embed them into articles.
I see based on your user contributions that you've been editing with mobile. I am not familiar with inserting photos on the mobile editor. If you are able to, I'd recommend doing it on a computer. I will have a go with the mobile editor in the meantime and see how it works, it's been a while! Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 15:32, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Heavy Rotation

Hello Please help define the category. Am80567126 (talk) 19:14, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, the only article on this type we currently have is Majia and there is no type assigned to it. I can't think of anything so I'll ask on our Discord. However, some products don't fit into any "type" and that's okay - a type is a collection of more than one similar products. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 20:01, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, thanks for making all these pages, it is really good to get rid of some redlinks and expand the wiki! But could you please slow down a little and add more to each of them? For XXL, we have five of these rides listed that could be added just by copying info from the existing articles. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 20:14, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, Lachlan! Can you please fix the image upload and video problems? Loch Ness (talk) 21:04, 7 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello @Loch Ness there were some problems earlier but they should all be fixed now - I have tested the videos and uploads and they’re no working.
You may need to clear your browser cache for the problems to clear - see this webpage for more info. Depending on which instructions you follow, this may clear your cookies too and log you out, so you may have to log back in. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 09:12, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For uploading photos from Flickr, we still do CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, CC-BY-NC, CC-BY-NC, CC-BY-NC-ND‎ and CC-BY-NC-SA. No uploading photos from Flickr under All Rights Reserved. Are we still doing this? Loch Ness (talk) 21:32, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes we do accept them but I can see now it isn’t working any more - I will fix this when I get the chance. Thanks

Hey, Lachlan! I probably didn't do a good job looking, but I couldn't find anything about how to make an Automatic Page Redirect. For example, if User clicks a link to the National Amusement Device Company page, I want them to be automatically taken to the International Amusement Devices page. (I need this redirect because I literally spent 30 minutes making the NADC page when somebody has already made the IAD page, which are essentially the same page. No offense to the person who made the IAD page, but I don't want this issue happening to anybody else.)

Thank you for reading and I look forward to your reply! SFGAM-Enthusiast (talk) 06:52, 28 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! To setup a redirect you need to just create a page and add the following text:
#REDIRECT [[International Amusement Devices]]
For future reference it’s always worth searching the site before working on a new page to ensure you’re not duplicating work, it’s easy to miss redirects when creating a page!
