The whole of Year 8 got the chance to visit Alton Towers in June in preparation for their Theme Park Projects. The project which now encompasses English, Maths and Science is one of the highlights of the year 8 curriculum as it gives students the chance to work in a team and get really creative designing and marketing a Theme Park of their own. Saeed Adam reports on this fun but education trip.
We set off at 7 o’clock from school by coach. There were about 5 coaches for all of year 8 but we could sit where we wanted.
We arrived at Alton Towers about 9 o’clock it was a good journey and we didn’t need to stop. I went to one talk which was all about Alton Towers, the rides, the feature rides, toilet locations and their new hotels. I found this part of the trip boring.
I think the best rides were the Smiler, Rita, Oblivion, Ripsaw, Nemesis, Thirteen, Air, Sonic Spinball and Nemesis sub-terra and to be honest lots more.
I think what makes a good theme park is easy location, good rides, plenty of food stops, clean toilets, maps and free wifi.
I think what makes a bad theme park is lots of children rides, no food stops, dirty toilets and no wifi makes a bad theme park.
I would make sure my park has lots of food stops, brilliant rides, very clean toilets and free wifi.
