  雅思口语里问“有很多人的地方、拥挤的地方”,这还能难倒咱们中国同学嘛!如果你经历过游乐场几小时的排队等候,那么这道题简直就是送分题!无论是迪士尼,还是欢乐谷,在高峰期能顺利入园都是lucky you了,所以把你挤破头的经历从头到尾娓娓道来,这道题就算答完了。

  This topic reminds me of the time my friends and I went to an amusement park.

  It was during peak season when basically everyone was on vacation ‘cause it was a national holiday. The park was packed with visitors, it took us about half an hour to get our tickets, and another half an hour to go through security, ‘cause there were long lines everywhere.

  After we got in, we were like ‘Oh my god’, I mean, there was a long line in front of every ride, so from that moment we knew, it’s impossible to try all the facilities in the time we had that day, so we just picked several rides that we were most interested in, but it turned out they were the most popular ones. We had a long wait before we got on the ride, for example, the roller coaster, we stood in line for almost 3 hours, but the ride only took us 2 minutes.

  And the worst part is, after we got off the roller coaster, it started to rain, and all the outdoor facilities were closed. So we had no choice but to run to those indoor shows and games. However, everyone was doing the same thing, so things got worse, the lines became longer. Actually it only rained lightly, but when we got inside, we were all pretty soaked.

  So you see, it was a terrible experience, and it taught me a lesson, which is, never go to a public place during festivals and national holidays, it would be a disaster.
