On Thursday, 6th June, year 5/6 went on our trip of the year to Oakwood Theme Park!!! However, before we set off, the day before, we found that, as there was only 19 people going, we couldn’t afford the bus! Fortunately, we found a smaller bus that we could afford, so the trip was back on track.
When we got there, we started of with going on ‘Speed’, a roller-coaster with a 115ft drop, loop the loop, and a corkscrew! I was one of the first on it. following ‘Speed’ we came back down to earth when we went on ‘Treetops’ 3 times. Our next destination was ‘Megafobia’, which we went on twice, a wooden roller-coaster and also voted as the UK’s NO.1 wooden roller-coaster. Following this, we all went on the bobsleigh once and then back onto ‘Megafobia’ twice once more. Just before lunch, we boarded ‘Spooky 3D’ a ghost train of which you also have 3D glasses on. While we waited for everyone else on ‘Spooky 3D’ we all went onto ‘The Cauldrons’, which were trampolines.
Then, following lunch at the entrance to ‘Neverland’ we went on some of the ‘Neverland’ rides, which started on the ‘Jolly Roger’ a small rocking pirate ship. After this, we went on ‘Tink’s Flying School’ and ‘Skull Rock’, which was a small log fume.
Leaving ‘Neverland’ it was time to check out the newest addition to the park, ‘Dizzy Disk’, which was a bit like the ‘Jolly Roger’ but it was on a track, you rode on a circle disk, standing up, and, as the name suggests, spins around at the same time, trying, to make you dizzy. After this experiment, we went on the ‘Pirate Ship’, and I asked for the person who was controlling the ride to go full pelt, and he did! Then, to conclude the day, we had the choice to either go to the shop with our spending money, or, go on the 100ft high log fume, ‘Drenched’. I chose to go on ‘Drenched’, and I went on twice, once at the back, and the 2nd time on the front! Then, as we weren’t allowed on again, but weren’t allowed to the shop as we were too wet, stood on the bridge at the bottom of the drop and got just as wet as we did at the front of the ride.
Finally, after a thrilling school trip, it was time to head back home! 🎢
