Model Answer 1:
Though I have passed my childhood long ago, I did not have the chance to visit the local parks and children centres for different reasons and most importantly I had to remain busy with my academic studies. Besides, my parents did not allow me to go there alone and unfortunately they also could not manage time to be with me there.

i-City is a theme park at the Shah Alam area in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. This is a stunning park and attracts a large number of audiences. This is a theme park and looks gorgeous at the night time for its colourful lightings. The park contains some exciting rides for all and the museum inside the park is awesome. The park is popularly known as the City of Digital Lights as it is strikingly decorated with LED lights. The park is accessible from anywhere in the city and always remains crowded by local and international visitors. The park offers some exclusive facilities to the visitors and features an exciting water park. The wax museum inside the park is also adorable while the snow covered areas of the park is considered as the largest snow park in Malaysia. The 3D features of the park also appear magnificent to the visitors.

On a Sunday evening, I was sitting idly in my room until my parents entered into my room. To my surprise, I discovered that my mom and dad have bought three tickets of the i-City theme park. In fact, it was their marriage anniversary and they wanted to surprise me. Later I came to know that it was my mom’s idea to take me to the park as I have never been there despite the park being a 10-minutes walk from our apartment. They hurried me to get prepared and we started for the park around 5.30pm. We rushed to park with the thought that it would be crowd-free in the evening but we were wrong. The park was crowded and we hardly managed spaces to ride on the park rides. We passed around three hours inside the park and had lots of fun. I enjoyed the rides.

The attractions are not few and it is difficult to mention about any specific thing at the park. I rode almost on all the rides of the park and the bright Ferris wheel attracted me most. When I was on the top of the wheel, I was feeling a weird sense inside my abdomen and when I looked down, I was greatly surprised by the height of the wheel. Besides, I liked the decoration of the theme park and the lighting styles. The small trees are illuminated with small lights which make them look beautiful. Besides, I also liked the booths for stuffed toys. The foods inside the park were yummy as well. After the sunset, the park turned into a small forest of pine and maple trees. Some other animals were also illuminated with the LED lights. The crowd of the park took me to a heavenly environment as long as I was there.

I am not a college student and have passed my life amid different restrictions. I was never allowed to get out of home alone, and my parents set my daily routine which included going to my school and come back to my home. Beyond the routine, I have nothing else to do. So, life was boring to me unless my parents allowed me to take somewhere for visits. Most of the cases, my visits were in the place of our relatives living the adjacent areas. Besides, my parents did not allow me to play outside of home fearing if I fall in any danger. So, it was difficult for me to enjoy something independently. But when they took me to the i-City theme park, they allowed me to do everything all by myself. I, thereby, enjoyed the rides, strolling inside the park walkways and the other things. They also gave me some pocket money to do things I want to do in the park. I truly enjoyed the visit and it was a memorable event in my life. So, I choose to talk about the park.


Sample Answer 2:
Recently my visit to Dunia Fantasi was a great experience for me and my family. In fact, it was a nice get together for us. Due to the hectic daily life, I was unable to take my family for outdoor recreational activities. And this was a great day for us. This is a very nice question. Answering it is a pleasure for me.

Dunia Fantasi is one of the renowned theme parks in Indonesia. It comes with many interesting amusement facilities. It has over 40 exciting rides and many other attractions that keep the visitors engaged round the day and week. The location of the park is also in a suitable place. It is facing the Java Sea in North Jakarta. The most important information about the theme park is that it is compliant with the ISO standards and the admission fee inside the park is reasonable too. 

I went at the park in last weekend. All of my family members were asking me to arrange for an outing with them. But owing my occupational engagement, I was unable to make that. Finally, I took leave from all of my activities for two days. In fact, being a merchant of international trading, it is really tough for me to arrange the extra time. Sometimes, I remain too busy in dealing with people, customers and foreign clients that I cannot manage time for myself. My daily routine changes in such days. But receiving the continuous appeal from the family, I decided to take a leave from my works and went at the theme park.

There were lots of attractive rides and things to do inside the theme park. But among the other things, I liked the Halilintar most. This was a roller coaster ride. The roller coaster was from a reputed manufacturer – Arrow Dynamics. It gave me and the other family members a great fun. I was afraid lest I fell down from the coaster. But finally, I did not. The thrills were extreme. The Niagara flume ride was the other ride that I liked as well. My kids also rode on the Ferris wheel which they described the most amusing one for them. 

I had been looking for a suitable place to take my family for entertainment. Accordingly, I gathered information about available amusement parks in Indonesia. Each of them was some sort of troubles and finally, I selected this one based on some grounds. It came with the best features and a suitable place to be with the family. It provided all the necessary rides suitable for every one of the family. Moreover, it was located in a convenient place and had some standard features. So, I picked the park and discussing it right now.
