I went to the theme park in the past few months with my family. I don't quite remember about it. But one thing sucked in my head . I am really afarid person. I'm always scarying to try new things however I decided to take on it. I went on rollercoaster . At first it was very awful .I was just closed my eyes and just shouting arrrrr , I didn't even know when it was end . When I landed on the ground I felt spared. I want to try it again but my mom didn't let me ride again cause of money . I'm not the only child I got one brother and one sister.

When I studied in grade 9, I had a trip to a theme park with my classmates. It was an enjoyable memorable trip. We had a fascinating experience when playing roller coaster. I felt dizzy and fear so much, but my friends are not. They thought that it was just only a normal game. After that, we decided to go swimming and had delicious lunch. It was so fun and I hope I can go back here with my old classmates again.

I went to Legoland in Malaysia when I was twelve, it's a lot of fun. Me and my family went on a VR rollercoaster, it is absolutely thrilling because you can't tell when you are about to take a turn or a deep fall, we screamed a lot. Everything is lego themed, we went into a park and which there is a lot of huge and beautiful lego builds. Sadly we didn't have a chance to visit the waterpark.

I also went to a theme park with my school friends. It was amazing and there was water everywhere. It was dream world we went to artificial waves it was so epic, the waves were automatically coming towards us and pushing us back. Then we go many places dream world was enormous . then finally we went to the cafeteria the food was brilliant. then we go to ride a horse, they were super fast and we go to changing section and change our cloths. The buses had been arrived. we spent 8 hours, it was super cool and I wish I will go back to Dream World.

Yes, I have. I went to Six Flags Mexico three years ago.I have to wake up at 4am because the bus leaves at 5 to arrive at 7 or 8, when we go into the city we almost get lost but we fortunately find the way to the park. After a long walk around the park we went into Wonderwoman and it was really scary but too fun. We also get into a small version of superman,and we scream a lot. After we went to eat. Later we went into small but funny games. We actually just rent our lockers for one or two hours. We were always running. It was so embarrassing. However, we had a lot of fun I hope to go again.

I went the theme park last year before the pandemic with my family. It was the first time that we go to the Chinesse Theme Park Happy Valley. It was a different experience but we have a great time together and we enjoyed a lot. There had many people in the line for the rides and we needed too much time for it. The food was too different to the another parks that visited in USA. The food was more healthy and only we can find the local food like dumplings. It was a amazing day and maybe returned to the Happy Valley this summer.

I've been to a theme park in China. It was amazing and I had a fun there! The weather was hot that day, but I had a cowboy hat on my head and a bottle of cold water in my backpack, so I was prepared perfectly. I came there with a few friends. I didn't really enjoy the Pirat ship, but anyway it was an interesting experience for me. The roller coaster was great! During a ride I felt like my brain is dancing jig in my scull. Haha) I can't wait to come there again with my parents, they said we can go there next summer holidays. Cool! I am going to take my girlfriend with me.

My classmates and I went to a cholocate factory yesterday in Shanghai, China. It was a 2-hour ride, so we all fell asleep on the bus. In the factory, we made cholocate. First, we poured the coconut milk into a bowl. Becasue it is tasteless, so, we chose the flavour we like. For example, I like strawberry, so I pour strawberry milk into the bowl again. After that, we put the mixed milk into a special freezer, which can freeze the milk into cholocate in 1 second. Magic! Finally, we can use models to make different shapes of the chocolate. Luckily, we can eat the scrumps. Yummy! However, on the way back, some of the students threw up on the bus! Guess what! They ate too much chocolate. It was so much fun. I can't wait to go again!

Last year I with my family and friends visited aquapark which is the biggest in my city. We had a lot of fun because there was very big swimming pool, 8 very high slides and.... restaurants. At first we were scared. My uncle was the first who tried slides(first slide where he went was the biggest slide in the aquapark). After that we had motivation and we decided to have a go. We had dinner in the one of the restaurants. It was pizza restaurant. We had a lot of fun and I enjoyed the trip.

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)

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!
