I started my internet obsession about 22 years ago running after my traineeship webdevelopment.

When the Internet came around I did a search for available resources in the leisure industry, but that was not much at that time. Although during the years the amount of new resources are rap[idly growing, so i started my first project called 'Ridesworld' in 1999. It was a link indexing portal based on the then popular links SQL from Gossamer-Threads. I've used Links SQL that was written in Perl until PHP became more popular and any updates for this program where halted.

Building a new link indexing portal costs many free evenings, but it was worth to do, because you get lot's of inpiration and information from other portals and guide.

When the amount of resources reached became so big that, i've decided with my team to build a new portal again under a new name.  Now it's no longer called 'Ridesworld' but it's now called 'AmusementIndex'. So you can consider Amusementindex as successor of 'Ridesworld'. The fact that the portal contains resources about i.e. zoos, pyrotechnics, waterparks, playgrounds, etc. means that the old name does not cover the whole content.

The name Ridesworld was too close associated with rollercoasters and flat rides. Now with a team of volunteer staff members and editors, we have been working on the largest leisure industry portal worldwide.
