At the Amusement park

Ben and Mark are standing in a queue outside the ticket office at the amusement park, waiting for their turn…

Ben: There are so many visitors today! I can’t wait to get out of this queue... Is this your first time here?

Mark: Well, actually, I’ve never been here before. When I was very young, my parents took me to a place like this, but I can hardly remember now... What about you? Are you here by yourself too?

Ben: No, I’m here with some friends. They’re just waiting for me next to the gate...You’re welcome to join us if you like!

Mark: That would be great, actually… Thanks a lot! I won this free ticket a few weeks ago, but none of my friends could come with me today and I didn’t want to waste it. What’s it like inside?

Ben: It’s great! We’ve been here a few times before and we had great fun together! There’s something for all ages...rollercoasters, water slides, dark rides, and themed experiences...and the ‘ghost train’, it’s terrifying!  You’ll see!

Mark: Sounds great…what are dark rides?

Ben: They’re indoor rides where you’re guided on different vehicles through scary scenes. There’s a lot of animation, sound, music, and special effects.

Mark: Sounds amazing! Look! We’re almost at the front of the queue! I really can’t wait to get inside the park now…
