A Theme Park Is Changing – level 2
In 2020, a theme park in Hong Kong had to close because of the coronavirus. For the year, the park was closed for more than 200 days. It is open now again, but the park owners must limit the number of visitors by 25%.
The chairman of the park said that the current situation was a chance for the park to find new ways to attract visitors. The park is located on the coast and there is a lot of greenery, which makes it possible to do activities like glamping, which is a form of camping, but it is more comfortable. Visitors can also do yoga in an aquarium.
Tourists cannot travel to Hong Kong now, so it is necessary to make the park more attractive for local people. The chairman said that it could take years to return to the situation before the coronavirus started.
Difficult words: owner (a person who has something and it belongs to him), limit (to allow less of something), chairman (the highest officer or worker in a company), greenery (a green areas with plants and trees).
