Junior's Recount about his school holiday

A special day in my school holiday.

During the holiday my family and I went to Rainbows End to spend time
together and have fun.

When we arrived I was filled up with excitement that I sprinted straight
to the bumper karts and believe me the line was as long as the sky tower.
Finally, it was my turn and as soon as it started I was flying around the
place because I was getting hit from every direction.

 After that, I zoomed to the bumper boats and of course, the line was to
long. Thirty minutes later and I  was in front of the line and when it was my
turn I went for the yellow kart because it was my favourite colour. When I
hopped in, I couldn't control it at the beginning but luckily, I quickly figured
out how to control it like a pro. I kept on going for my brother because he
was getting cheeky and cocky so I bumped into him so hard that his stomach
hit the wheel extremely hard. 

Later on, we went on the roller coaster when I hopped on it started and halfway
I nearly threw up because it went in a circle that felt like you were gonna fall to
fall off the carriages but what scared me the most was when the track made
the roller coaster swirl in circles.

Minutes later we went on my favourite ride which was the INVADER! This time
I actually went to the toilet straight after the ride because I felt like a falcon
flying without feathers.

Hours flew by, there was only one ride we needed to go on and that was
the fear-fall because we saved the best of the best for last and as soon
as we were on the seats all I felt was goosebumps all over my body. It finally
went up and I looked down, butterflies were in my stomach when we at the
top it stopped and I thought it was broken then all of a sudden it went down.
It felt like a whole bunch of wind was blowing all at me at once.

Overall it was a really exciting day with my family and I will definitely not
forget this day for the rest of my life.
