The ride ‘Waves of Doom’ will be implemented into the theme park. It retains the concept of a wave pool, utilising water and electricity to create a periodic disturbance in the water basin (Harris, 2015). In order to generate the periodic motion, a pump
A hidden gem this truly is, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Located far off the coast of the United States. Across the Pacific Ocean, one visitor must travel to experience such a beauty. Although, it may be far, this island is not one to shy away from. When you arrive you are welcomed by sunny skies, hot pink sand, rising mountains, and the big blue ocean appearing as a crystal spread across the sea floor. This is exactly what I experienced during my visit!
Moody gardens and Pleasure Pier are two of the main attractions on the island. Moody gardens has a series of tall glass pyrmids with the aquarium pyrimid, rainforest pyrimid, and discovery pyrimid.

It is such an adrenaline boost. My dad and brothers love this place as much as I do but since Uriah and Zachary are older they didn't go with us this summer. We used to always go when we were younger and it was always the best times, but what made this trip one of my favorite of all time is that I got to go on all the thrilling rides with my best friend. Allie and I loved the ride the Raptor. The Raptor was one of those rides that your feet dangled from. There were certain rides that Allie would not ride with me so my dad would always be my riding partner on the ones that she would always chicken out of riding. Castaway Bay is Cedar Point's water park. I am not one to love water parks but Castaway Bay is the best water park I have ever been too. They have the biggest variety of water rides. Even Though I am not the biggest fan if water rides this is my favorite water park. We spent every morning at the waterpark and every afternoon/ night at the amusement park. For lunch and every sometimes for dinner Allie and I would eat Chinese food from Panda Express everyday. Now just the smell of panda express takes me back to that trip. The last night we were there the park put on a show for all the little kids where they can
While at Yosemite, why not visit a rockslide? Slide Mountain is a very interesting area to visit. It is located in the east-northern part of the park. These rockslides are part of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The very steep bank located at the bottom of Slide Mountain is 3230 meters in elevation. The glacial polish located in the rockslide indicates that Slide Mountain was once filled with glaciers that eroded the mountain to make it so steep. This is such a wonderful natural-made masterpiece to visit for those interested in the geology of Yosemite. An extremely enjoyable activity to do while you are there is to rock climb Slide Mountain.

As a child, these monsters of fun always intrigued me, but I was required to travel more than 2,000 miles in order to ride one. I used to question why the state of Hawaii didn’t have just one amusement park on any of its eight islands. It’s actually pretty ironic how we have several water parks in our state, though we are fully surrounded by the refreshing H2O or zero boardwalks in an area with an abundance of beaches.
At the peak of the point this is a panorama of the sea and the red-roofed lighthouse. The lighthouse built in 1909, is not available to walk around just a sight to see on the hillside. (Crosby). If coming between September thru April there is a chance to see migrating humpback whales, as they tend to pass right by this point. Heading down the steep trail to the tide pools there is a blow-hole that can blast up to 50 feet in the air. “The Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club (HTMC) has loads of information for new hikers, visitors and serious adventurers interested in exploring one of Oahu's more than 80 trails. The club has been exploring the island since 1910. On the Web: http://htmclub.org” (Crosby). Another great hike on the south side, Maunawili Falls Trail is a 3-mile round trip in the jungle, be sure to put on sneakers or boots, as it can become muddy from the rain and coverage of the trees. Following the path through the jungle of trees you will reach the waterfall. “At its base is the larger, lower pool encircled by fern-covered cliffs. Up a slippery slope is a second, smaller pool where the waterfall splits in two.” (Ball, p186). This is a beautiful area to swim and relax being surrounded by
Columbus Zoo also has a 22-acre water park known as Zoombezi Bay. This water park is its own section that’s attached to the zoo. This water park has slides and pools for small children, as well as adult thrill-seekers. There are 2 wave pools, a lazy river, 17 water slides, an adult only river where you can drink alcoholic beverages and relax, and several other different water rides. After you walk around the zoo on a hot day, you’re ready to run into the nearest pool. I’m not big on heights, or thrill but still love to have fun and there were several slides, raft rides, and things to do that I had a great time. As well as my wife and 2 boys. My favorite water slide is a two-person raft, where you’re riding in a tunnel and you come out into a bowl that takes you around an around. This was the one ride that I didn’t mind waiting in line for. Unfortunately, Detroit Zoo doesn’t offer anything like Zoombezi Bay, so on a hot summer

Beyond these buildings the base of the Sky Ride can be seen as well as the triangular
