PAULTONS PARK FUN
By Amelie Henderson
While my family were on a trip to the New Forest, we spent a great day at Paultons Park.
I’ve been before, but now I’m older, it was the first time I was brave (and tall!) enough to try
out some of the faster, more exciting rides!
I really loved the rollercoasters, and my favourite was the Farmyard Flyer, which is shaped like an aeroplane and zooms around an old-fashioned American farmyard. It was so much fun, although I felt like I left my tummy behind!
After that, my little sister wanted to go to Peppa Pig World, so I relaxed on a couple of more gentle rides with her. We ended the day at the splash park (even though it was a pretty cold day!), so we went home with wet hair and big smiles.
