"Can we go on the log ride first?" asked Ava.
"Ok," said Dad." Let's go!"
"This is a long line," said Ella.
"Don't worry," said Mom. "You just have to be patient for a little while."
"OK," said Ella.
"You too, Ava." said Mom.
Finally, Ella and Ava got on their log ride. They were so excited to on the log ride. It was going a little slow up the hill and a little faster down the hill. When Ella and Ava almost got to the top of the big hill, suddenly, the cart stopped. It went backwards down the hill very fast. It kept going up and down until the guy found the switch. Finally, Ella and Ava got off. "Boy, I'm so dizzy." said Ella.
"So am I," said Ava.
"Thank gosh we got off that ride," said Ella.
"That ride wasn't supposed to go backwards," said Dad. " I have a little map in my pocket that tells me what rides go backwards, what rides go forwards, the names of the rides and where the rides are located."
Ella and Ava said," we were so shocked. We never thought that was going to happen."
"I agree," said Mom and Dad. "We were shocked too."
"Let's go find another ride to go on," said Ella.
"OK," said Ava, Mom and Dad.
Suddenly it started to pour and a few minutes later it started to lightning outside, so they went under a tent for a little while, waiting for the rain to stop, but it didn't. It got worse, so the whole park started to close, most of the rides started to close too. Everyone was trying to rush to get out of the park.
Then Ella, Ava, Mom and Dad got in the car and started to drive away. They got home safely and Ella and her family waited for a little while and the rain and lightning finally stopped. Ella and Ava were so happy.
Then the telephone started to ring, Ella and Ava were wondering, "Who can that be?" Dad said, "I will answer it."
When he was done, Ella and Ava asked who was that.
"It was the manager from the Great Escape, they said that it stopped raining and the lightning stopped and nothing is flooded. The best part is he said that we can go back if we want."
"Well, then let's go," said Ella and Ava.
"Ok," said Dad, "Let's go everyone." Ella and her family got in the car and drove back to the Great Escape. when they got on the highway, Ella and Ava's Dad's car broke down.
"Oh no," said Ella." Will we be there on time?"
"If this car gets fixed fast," said Dad. Dad called and auto-repair guy from one of the car repair stores. Then the person came to fix it. When the auto repair guy was done, Dad said, "Thank you." And they finally drove away.
When Ella and Ava got there again, they got to go on every ride they wanted to go on because The Great Escape was very uncrowded.
"That was so fun," said Ella and Ava. "It was cool that we went on the log ride," Ella said. I was kind of shocked that we went backwards on the log ride," said Ella.
"So was I," said Ava.
"Me too, " said Mom.
"Me too," said Dad.
Even though everything seemed to go wrong, Ella and Ava still had a lot of fun at The Great Escape!
