I was in the theme park 2 years ago in Spain, Port Aventura. There i rode on a large roller coaster. Honestly, it was scary and at the same time fun. Port Aventura is a very interesting and crazy park. It was unforgettable experience.

To be honest, I've never been in a theme park but I'd like to. Still, I've been to my local parks. Of caurse, they aren't so exciting but I think it's important to find a benefit from everything, so I've done. Well, I enjoy extreme rides. In my park they are called as "Mars", "Hip-hop" and "Wild train". They are amazing and I always have fun going there)

Yes, I have been to a theme park with my parents and sisters. My dad and I went on a crazy ride and he got sick for a whole week! Poor dad. I enjoyed it though and cannot wait to go again!

Certainly, I'd been to the amusement park lots of times. I loved rides so much that I would get the annual memberships for three years! But now, I prefer to rest in my home, reading books or watch movies or take a nap. Actually, I still love thrilling rides such as X-coaster, Gyro Drop, and Flume Ride. But I love only thrilling rides, nor the scary things. I can't stand the ghost's house or zombie safary. I've heard that there is the zombies in Lotte World during the Hallowin seasons, but if I would rode that, I would freak out with screaming, "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Zom... Zom... Zombies!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!". (LOL)However, I don't like riding anything but Gyro Drop which I couldn't ride because of the age and the height limit. I'd rode the other Gyro Drop twice in my life, and I'd liked it! So, the conclusion is this: I don't want to go to the amusement park, except with my GF! (Actually, I prefer museums, galleries, and at least zoos than amusement park.) And the most-funny thing is this: My bucket list No. 37 is 'go to the Disneyland with my GF. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!

I went a theme park last year. I went to dufan with my friends. I thought I couldn't go with my friends because I thought they didn't want to go. We were verry happy. We went by car. It took 1 hour. After arrived, we bought the tickets. We played a lot of games in dufan. We took a lot of photos. At 12pm we searched for food in a food court. We ate burgers. After lunch, we played again until 8am. And we watched the fireworks. And we went back home.

In the last school holiday we went to Hong Kong in the last year. I was very surprised that my family decided to go to Hong Kong. I was very excited and couldn't wait to go to Hong Kong. We went to the Disney Land in Hong Kong. I felt very happy because that was the first time I went to Disney Land. My little sister was the most excited to go to Disney Land because her dream was to go to Disney Land. We took a lot of photo there and played a lot of games until 6 pm and then we went back to the hotel.

when I was 13, me and my family went to Disneyland Hongkong. It was the coolest place I have ever been. This place can be reached by LRT it's like train but it's operated over the road. By the way don't forget to take the Disneyland train because it's the only train that goes to Disneyland. After that we had to queue for 15-30 minutes because it was crowded. Then we went straight to the lobby and we were stunned for a while because the place was enormous and amazing. We spent there for more than 6 hours.

My trip to the theme park I went to the theme park when I was ten. I mostly forgot about the experiences I had in the theme park but I remember that it was in Malaysia. I got on most of the rides because I was old enough to go to all the rides. I went to the theme park with my cousins and we had some fun together. I think that some of the rides were boring because we also had to give some time to my little cousin to get on the girly rides and some of the rides were amazing. For example, the roller coaster was super fun because there were some parts where we went up and down so many times and I almost threw up but luckily I didn't. I hope I can go to another theme park with my cousins again in the future.

My trip to the theme park I often visited the theme park in our little town.I barely remember everything, cause I was too young, but the most colourful memories I still try to keep in mind. First time I visited the theme park with my father.I remember it was summer, and I was wearing my favourite pink cap.The theme park was super small,so we didn't have too many choices.The most popular attraction was the ride(I'm gonna say it was more for kids). And of course,my dad suggested to go on it, ''lucky'' me.We bought tickets(I still tried to calm down ),and went inside,the boring man with the stone face was saying the rules, which you have to obey.The first minutes of the ride were terrible, I was scared even to cough , the thoughts of falling down didn't leave me for a long time.When I finally relax, the strong wind took off my FAVOURITE PINK CAP, which fell at the bottom of the ride.Luckily the same boring man brought it back. Another time I went to the theme park with my friends.They were much older than me,but it didn't bother me at all.Our town got the new attraction, which was real creepy and crazy, all my friends were dreaming to visit it, but my dream was 100% a bouncy house.The problem was , that I couldn't visit it alone, so I had to wait for my friends.It was funny to watch them shouting and screaming, until one of them threw out, it was disgusting!When I finally went to the bouncy castle, I don't know how scratched my elbow, as I was a stupid kid, I went to the pic of the castle and started shouting and crying, until my friends helped me go down.

The Florida trip Last month, my parents and I went to the Florida, we had a lot of fun there. Our plane tickets were in afternoon, so when we arrived Florida, it was all dark. The driveway was a little bit different than the place I live, there is more lanes and there were plants between two ways. Because it was dark outside, we could not see road well, my father drived to the wrong side of the road, after realizing we went to the wrong side, we fixed it quickly. Luckly there were not many cars on the road, but it was still dangerous. The next day, we went to the famous attraction near the sea, it was not far from the hotel we live, but when we nearly arrive the destination, we found out there were too many people and the parking lot were all full! So my parents decided one of them will took me to take pictures, and another one will go and find a place to park. The place wasn't like what I saw on the picture, there were full of people and sea grass on the sand beach, people were crowded, all of them were taking pictures and want to get near to the famous attraction. But there were still beautiful places I like, we did diving on the surface of Keywest, there were large amount of coral reef under water. We wore our life vest, goggles, breathing tubes, and flippers got from ship, captain explained the safety instruction to all of people on the boat. After everything was prepared, he allowed us go and dive in the water. When I got life vest provided from ship, I worried whether it can help me in the sea, because it looked so weak. Actually, it worked well in the sea, and I saw many kinds of little fish and even dolphins near us! The trip made me tired, but I had a fantastic time during the trip!

Yes, I have. I went to Gardaland three years ago. That morning I got up very early and I was very excited. It was my father's birthday and that trip was a special surprise for his 50th birthday. We arrived at the park at 10 o'clock. It was early but there were a lot of people. because it was the beginning of September and the weather was sunny and hot. It was my first time on a roller coaster with a loop. My mother had to come with me and I still remember her terrified face while I was having so much fun!

I went to the theme park the year before last year for New Year's Eve celebrations. A friend ,whom I had met online, invited me there. It was the first time we meet in real life, and I found it embarrassing to meet him on my own, so I asked my best friend Pan to come with me. We set out late, so when we arrived in the park there were already huge queues for all the ticket gates. Therefore, we had to wait under the north wind for ages. The celebrations were brilliant! There was a outdoor concert. Musicians were playing amazing music on the stage, while we spectators were playing some silly games under the stage, say, shooting each other with "snow-makers". At the moment of the New Year's countdown, they let off loads of fireworks on a tower. Everyone was shouting, cheering and saying "Happy New Year!". It was a really impressive New Year's Eve. It was so much fun! I'd love to go again this year!

I have to go theme park out of my city because there is no theme park around here. So when I was elementary student, I went to 'Gyeonggido' for one reason. Theme park. My classmates and I took a bus for around 3 hours. It was worth. The roller coaster named 'T express' was crazy. I was almost death.

Today was the day to go on a trip to water theme park. I got up more early than other days in the morning and I was exciting. At 8 am, I left home and meet my friends at the school park. There was no obstacles like traffic jam on the road. We were all exciting. After arrival, we went on the Abyss and Xtreme rides. Really it goes fast and i felt drizzy when it stopped. But there is almost nobody sicking. We took a lot of photos while going on the rides. It was fantastic and amazing. I don't think i can forget today.

Yes, several indeed. I really don't like them for many reasons, mainly because there are a lot people queuing for the rides, waiting under the sun for hours ain't fun. And they are usually disappointing I don't find the rides entertaining at all.

I have been to a park at Phu Quoc, I went there by coach. First, I and my family took some photos, then we went to play video games, and we watch a show of mermaid. After that, we went to play some outside activities, we bought ice cream and went on a Colour Sun Wheel. Finally, we watched a fountain but played all day, I, of course, got a bit hungry. Fortunately, when I went to the homestay, the hotelier mades delicious food. Because I'm hungry so the trip got a bit sad, but if I can go there one time, is OK. : )

I have already gone to a theme park. Every year, I go to Europa Park with my school. Indeed I went there last year with my friends, and I will go back on July ! It’s very funny, because we are alone in the park, without grown-ups with us ! My favorite attractions are Silver Star, Blue Fire and Euromir because I love sensation !

I went to a theme park when I was......umm........like 11. I can't remember the exact date but it was December. I went there with my dad , little sister, my uncle and aunt. The name of the park was 'Fantasy Kingdom'. We started for the park at 9am. We reached there maybe at 12:30pm. When I entered the park I was like WOOW...!!! I couldn't close my mouth!! It was my first time so I was acting like insane....!!! FUNNY..!! Whatever!! I was so excited for riding on a rollercoaster. I got into that with my father...my little sister couldn't get into that cause she wasn't long enough......!!! Lol! My uncle and aunt stayed with her. Anyway, when the rollercoaster started I also started screaming... The uncle who was sitting behind me was telling me not to look at the ground... I didn't follow his advice and it got me feeling more dizzy....UGH! And then we went to the water park. It was so nice.I enjoyed that very much. But we couldn't stay there for a long time cause my sister got cold.... But my trip was so enjoyable. And I enjoyed that very much. (THE END)

Theme parks is my favourite kind of spending holiday, although I rarely go to them because of school. The best remembered visiting of theme park is when I was six and lived in a small town called Krasny Luch. Do you imagine how rarely were theme parks there? And they were very small beside that in big cities. However, it was something new and amazing for me, and when I remember that moments of real happiness of childhood, I feel warmth in my soul.
