The Defunct Coaster Index has just been upated with a new batch of over thirty lost rides. These range from steel to wood and are thoroughly researched with statistics and more and include some very rare known facts. COASTERnet is aiming to have a complete listing of all lost coasters ever built on American soil. Also, if you can help us out by filling in any currently unknown statistics, it would be greatly appreciated.

Doesn't Incoasterpaedia already have that?

The guys at COASTERnet have done an outstanding job.....an easily navigated site that is very accurate. As an enthusiast AND historian, I am glad to see sites like this providing the amusement industry with connections to the past. How soon we often forget about the rides that started it all. I just cringe when historic coasters are bulldozed, like Coney's Thunderbolt.

No. The listings do cover many defunct rides (not nearly all though) but don't really go into statistics.
