Model Answer 1:

I, as a young boy, remember requesting my father to take me to an amusement park for a long time, but unfortunately, my wish wasn’t granted simply because there wasn’t an amusement park in my hometown. Of course, there was an amusement park in a different city, far away from my hometown, but my father was too busy to take me there. So, I actually had to wait a long time to materialize my dream of visiting an amusement park, only when my school had organized a tour to one in that big city.

Anyway, it all happened about 14 years ago when I had just started high school. But, I must say that, as I remember it now, the sheer excitement of visiting an amusement park was actually more than actually going into that amusement park and see it with my own eyes. And I am assuming that the same happened with the other kids also, as far as the excitement was concerned.

By the way, our high school had organized that tour for the first time in the history of our school because the authority really wanted us to get a firsthand experience of visiting an amusement park as a child. Now, to talk about the amusement park in a bit more details, it occupied around 10 acres of land, and it had all kinds of games and rides, including rollercoasters, railways, water rides, and ferries wheel, among many other things, as far as I can remember. However, the best things about that amusement park, I visited, it had attractions that were catered to different age groups.  

Anyway, I mostly enjoyed all the rides while playing a couple of games, including “balloon and darts”.  I even own a little toy car in that game! I also watched a kid’s movie there with my friends. Finally, I also had a lot of fun at the food corners there who served us with a lot of nice snacks and foods.


Sample Answer 2:

For a long time, I have not been to a park or amusement park but my visit to a renowned amusement park in our city last year was so pleasant that I look forward to revisit there. The amusement park I am talking about is nearly 40 kilometres away from the city where I live in and is a large one. It is beside the City resort and occupies around 12 acres area.

I went there with my parents, 4-5 cousins and 2 nephews. This was a family trip and we planned to take the children to a place where they would be able to enjoy. Since the busy school schedules often bore the children, we planned to take them somewhere and let them enjoy their time. As part of the plan we left home early in the morning and spent almost the entire day there.

Since there were many teenagers and children with us, we had to look after them. I managed the tickets, purchased lunch and took care of the children. I enjoyed 2-3 rides and mostly took photos of me parents with the kids.

In the noon I planned to have a bath in the swimming pool and I really enjoyed that. We also enjoyed a 3D movie in the park and after I won a doll in the balloon game, I shouted like a 10 years old child. That was a refreshing gathering for us and I enjoyed both the company of my family members and the nice environments and amusement facility of this park.
