We're looking for your help on a couple items here at Theme Park Insider.

First, please take a look at our discussion board thread, What is your dream theme park experience? I'm looking for interesting features to cover over the next few months here at TPI, and I'd like to start by collecting your ideas for the stuff you'd like to experience, if money were no issue. Readers already have suggested a few neat ideas; I'd like to read yours.

Second, by request, we've added a page for Knoebles Amusement Park in Pennsylvania. But, since I've not been there before, I need readers' help in adding the attraction line-up for the park. Just click to the page, then click the link to update its description, and to add missing attractions. (Which, at this point, are all of them.)

As always, you can make such additions and corrections to any park's listing here on TPI. Folks do a pretty good job of keeping the big parks current, Disney, Universal, etc. But, being a volunteer, reader-written website, we always need help on the smaller, regional parks. If you see something that needs to be added -- a missing ride, a park touring plan, a link to park hours on an official website -- please do not hesitate to add it. Thanks!

I'm all set to fill out the Knoebels page for the site Robert, but there are no text boxes to fill out when clicking either add ride or add restaurant link. Just a blank page with logo and ads. Also, some of the parks (namely the Kings Island page) need a little more extensive revamping. Rides need to be deleted, some added on, and some lands need to be removed and others added as well. Appears to need little more than the wiki editing can do at this time

Site Managers,
What scale are we looking at for parks...Are you interested in parks that might play to a smaller market? There are 2 notable parks in the Mid-West that aren't listed on your page: "Worlds of Fun" and "Silver Dollar City" both in Missouri. Not sure what the qualifier would be in order to have a park noted on your page but both of these parks are sizable, themed, and have thrill rides. Neither could compete with the Disneys and Universals but, both offer unique experiences...If it's worth the effort, I think there are a lot of mid-westerners that could provide details & info on these parks...

^I think Robert mentioned a while ago that the parks on the site have a certain attendance or something like that.

Knoebels' pages are fixed. Sorry about that. (It worked in my browser, but... well, forget the long story. It's fixed now. Sorry, again.)

We list to get all paid-admission parks in English-speaking countries that attract more than two million annual visitors. For parks between one and two million anual visitors, I'll add them if someone asks nicely and volunteers to input and maintain the listings. We're not listing parks with less than one million annual visitors. But we always welcome trip reports about any themed attractions anywhere, regardless of attendance.

If anyone encounters any problems with attraction input, lemme know. To delete a closed attraction, just click to its listing page, then click the "update this listing" link. There, you can click an option to alert me that the location is closed.

Thanks, again.
