Fun at Disneysea

Dead flowers, an old black cloak, a purse and a handkerchief spread over a dusty sofa, a broken lift, paintings of Harrison Hightower stealing precious things from around the world such as an Easter Island stone head and sarcophagus from Egypt. I was in the lobby of the creepy Hightower Hotel at Tokyo Disneysea. This ride is the scariest and most popular ride in Disneysea.
Harrison Hightower was an explorer who went around the world stealing artefacts. When he went to Africa, a tribal chief gave him a cursed Idol that was responsible for his disappearance at his hotel. Ever since his disappearance, the hotel has been abandoned for years. And now they are giving tours of the hotel.

We stepped into a lift with seats. As the ride started, they told the story of Harrison Hightower's disappearance. The ride went up and down, up and down until I was going to get sick. When I stepped out of the lift, I shouted out loud, " That was the best ride I've been on!"

The Best Trip Ever

What is like a giant swing, that can hold a lot of people and makes you scream? IT'S THE CLAW! That was my most favourite ride at Dreamworld! The people strap themselves into the seats around a long.. bar. When it starts, the bar swings like a pendulum and goes up higher and higher and the screams get louder and louder! I went on it six times because I love it so much!
Besides Dreamworld, we also visited Movie World and Sea World. My favourite ride in Movie World was the Road Runner Roller Coaster because it goes very fast! It wasn't a scary ride, it was a fun ride! We went on it over and over again. The most scariest ride at Movie World was the ScoobyDoo ride. I don't like the part when the cart twist and turn; it felt like we were falling off the track. Another scary ride in Movie World was Wild West Falls! You sit in a log, and go on a ride along a river and you end up falling over a waterfall. It was like your butt was not touching the seat anymore when you are falling in the waterfall.

Another theme park was Sea World. My two most favourite rides at Sea World are Jet Rescue and Sea Viper! Jet Rescue is a ride where you sit on a jet ski and zoom around a pond. Sea Viper is a roller coaster which has a lot of loops. At Sea World we touched stingrays, sea cumber and star fishes. I took a long time to touch the stingrays and the sea cucumbers because I was a scaredy cat.
When we were leaving Gold Coast Australia for home, I was so sad because I will miss all the rides especially the Claw. I wish to go to Gold Coast again.
