Roller Coaster Stop – level 1

08-05-2018 07:00

There is an incident at a theme park.

The park is in Japan. A roller coaster stops.

It stops with sixty people in it.

They are in the air and upside down. They are 30 metres above the ground. In two hours, people save them. Everyone is OK.

Difficult words: incident (an accident, something bad which happens), theme park (a park like Disneyland), roller coaster (a ‘train’ which goes fast, up and down and rolls).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
