My favorite vacation was when I was five years old and my Father took me to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. What made it even more memorable was the fact that it was my very first time on an airplane. I can never recall in my whole entire life experiencing that much joy before. That trip to Universal Studios was the first time my Father and I actually did something together, just the two of us and was something brought me close to my Father. In this essay I will tell you about my plane ride over there, what I did right when I got there, and about my time at Universal Studios.
I can still remember how excited I was before take off, I mean it felt like forever while we sat in the plane waiting to take off. Just all the anticipation that was inside of me had just made the wait even longer for me. Finally, I heard the pilot say "prepare for take off'. When I heard those words I was so overjoyed I could hardly contain myself. That rush I got once the plane took off was an experience like no other. The plane ride was about hours long and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Little did I know, that was less than half of the fun I was going to have at Orlando. After we got off the airplane, we rented a car and drove to my Uncle Joe's house. We finally got there and then we all went out to eat dinner. We went to some Italian restraint and boy was it good. To this day, I have never tasted anything as good as the Veal Pinata I had that day. I ate so much that I could hardly move and once I got back to my uncle's, I just passed out and went to bed.
I had a big and exciting day ahead of me. I was going to Universal Studios and I couldn't wait. The whole drive there I was just wondering what I was going to do and see over there. I mean I thought I thought I was excited about my plane ride there, but that wasn't even half of what I was feeling at that time. Once I saw the roller coasters as we drove to Universal's Island of Adventure my face just lit up like the sun. I had never seen quite like it before.
When we got inside I saw a massive number of people everywhere. While we were waiting to get our bracelets, my uncle disappeared for a minute, and when he came back, he surprised us with passes to the front of every line for every ride in the park... I was just beside myself once he gave me my pass because that meant I could ride any ride as many times I wanted to. The first ride we went on was called the Hulk Coaster. It was a tremendous roller coaster with more loops then I could count.
We watched it go around once before we went on. My uncle saw how many times it went upside-down and decided not go on. My dad and I made fun of him, but once I was strapped to my seat, I was having second thoughts myself. We took off in what felt like a fraction of a second.
Before I knew it, I was being whipped around sharp turns and flipped around loops. It was so much fun! When we got off and walked toward the exit, we saw a wall of television screens, which was showing candid shots of us on the ride. We both looked terrified. It was hilarious. My dad still has the picture.
We went on a few more rides and then stopped to get something to eat. We then walked to the next ride. It was called Dr. Dooms Fear Fall.
We sat down in a row of four, with our legs dangling. After a few minutes, the voice of Dr. Doom was heard. I don't remember exactly what he said, but I do remember him saying " Prepare to Die!" All of a sudden we shot up 150 feet into the air and then pushed back down faster then gravity.
We thought it was over, but it shot us up again. It was a very exhilarating experience. The day was coming to an end, but before we left I knew I had to get something from the gift shop. After I bought everything I wanted there, we left thus one of the greatest days of my life came to an end. In conclusion, you can see why I think that this is my favorite vacation of al time. Like I said before I can never really think of a time in my life where I had a vacation that made me so happy.
There just wasn't a dull moment to me in that whole trip. I mean I got to fly for the very first time, saw Universal Studios for the first time, and I saw my uncle for the first time since I was born. I just have so many good memories of that whole trip. Everything was great, but what made the trip even greater was the fact that I was able to spend time with my uncle and dad alone.
