This winter break I enjoyed many things, but best of all was the winter carnival! This exciting event took place behind the pool. The weather had been unsatisfactory for most of the time there, but that day it was excellent. The sun was shining, it was warm, and the sky was blue. When I got there they had already set up. There was loud music, although I don’t remember what songs. The funnel cake smelled tantalizingly heavenly and tasted so too! There were two rides, a swinging chairs carousel, and a Tilt-A-Whirl They both felt exhilarating to ride! We (that is, me and the other people who were riding the Tilt-A-Whirl) got the operator to make it swing even higher and faster! The thrill of riding it was astonishing! At one point I did an obstacle course shaped like a pirate ship, there isn’t much to say about this, except for that it was hard to climb up, and that it was massive. There was also a water gun game where the winner got a plushie. I won on my first try and got a stuffed snake for my cousins. Later I tried to win again, but I question the capability of the machine, seeing as it misidentified the winner constantly. Plus the man running the game didn’t bother to check. Not only that, but he took an excruciatingly long amount of time to start the game each round. In other words, it was incredibly annoying. There was also a game bus, I played Mario Kart in it, but they were so busy I had to get off after just one race. I also saw Emet Mornstein (he’s a friend of mine, I also may have spelled his name wrong). Then I went to the satellite pool with him for what I think was three hours,(I can’t remember) and that was Winter Carnival at Gleneagles, it was delightful, to say the least!
