I went to a theme park in orlando this year with my family and it was so 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.

Hello, I wish you had a very good time on there but I think that Port Aventura in Spain in better.

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. : )

Yesterday, was amazing! We went to an theme park with the friends and I enjoyed a lot. But at 6 pm I had to get up for go to the bus station, and I was so tired but I feel good because it was not a normal day. When we arrive we go to the hotel for leave the suitcase. Later I have lunch and when we finish we go to diferents attractions for digest the food and later we go to the swimming pool for having fun. Finally we go to sleep for get up early the next day.

When I was ten, my mom took me to a theme park. I was pretty fun but I don't actually like it. One of the reasons is I afraid of heights but my bro want me to prove that I'm brave.(it was one of the worst moment of my life ) :((((((

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)

Hi 2B. If the teachers won't change their mind, maybe you can organise a trip yourselves. It could be fun to plan your own trip with total freedom!

And, please can you create separate accounts for each user? In our House Rules we ask you not to share your account with other people. Thanks a lot. Welcome to LearnEnglish Teens and we hope you enjoy using this site :)

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.
