Reflection
From the research we have made, we :
• Have a deeper understanding of different landscapes of the two case studies.
• Learnt the history of the chosen theme parks.
• Understand the importance of location and accessibility.
• Are able to obtain data and information from multiple references.
• Found information on different aspects of the case study, e.g. Characteristics,
Landscape Features, Activities and etc.

Conclusion
Adventure theme parks are theme parks that provide more
active and adventurous activities that requires less machinery,
and more interactions with nature.
