Story – Amusement Park

Amanda and her friends had gone to the amusement park. Amanda was a little more fearful about being up high and riding roller coasters than her friends. Actually, her friends were not scared at all. They believed that the scarier the ride, the better. Amanda had an idea.

“Let’s ride this ride. It seems fun,” Amanda told her friends, hoping they would agree.

“Okay,” the friends stated reluctantly. They already knew Amanda did not like scary rides. However, they rode Amanda’s choice a few times. Amanda was happy.

“Now, let’s ride this ride,” a friend said pointing to the Ferris wheel. Amanda wasn’t sure. She hated it, but she agreed.

Amanda and her best friend got strapped in. After a few minutes, the Ferris wheel slowly turned and went in circles for several rotations. It took quite a while for Amanda to get off the ride.

Then the friends decided to divide up and ride separate rides. One group went to Taylor’s favorite ride. Taylor always went on this ride.

The other group decided to ride a roller coaster. This roller coaster was very popular. Amanda had heard about this roller coaster. She did not know which ride she should ride. She really didn’t like either one of them, but she chose the roller coaster. She watched the ride go around the track several times while she was in line with her friends.

After riding the ride, Amanda was actually happy, but a little scared. She wanted to ride it again.
