Rails Amusement Park


Get comfortable with using form helpers, having models interact with each other, and building out a simple sessions system.

You're going to be building an amusement park. There will be users, attractions, and users can take rides on attractions.


  • Check out The Demo to see where this lab is headed.
  • This is a test driven lab, check out the model tests and get those to pass before moving onto the feature specs.
  • Remember, if you use scaffolds or generators do not overwrite the model specs that are included in this lab. Always use the --no-test-framework flag and enter n or no when prompted to overwrite the model specs for this lab.

A hint about requiring a password: ActiveRecord comes with a handy has_secure_password attribute that you can set on a model. It requires that you enable the bcrypt gem and that you add a password_digest column to your model. You can read more about has_secure_password here.

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."

Learn. Love. Code.
