The students were accompanied by 2 teachers from the school along with 2 representatives from HOPE.
Chunky Monkey is one of the largest amusement park situated in Karachi with a unique idea of attracting kids and families who are searching for a place that is full of excitement. The rides are very safe and designed in a way that is very secure for the kids. The park is well maintained and very neat & clean. There are a number of different activities and rides such as the pirate ship, the wheels on the bus ride, roller coaster ride, the anti-plunger behaved more like an open, rotating elevator to nowhere. It ascended and descended at such a slow speed that it ought to be part of the park's geriatric section. And the basement which is made into an arcade, not forgetting the dodging cars and haunted house which were very thrilling.
The whole trip was sponsored by Target Inc. Pakistan, a direct affiliate of a major retailing chain store in the US which enjoys a very exclusive and dedicated clientele. The trip concluded by the distribution of lunch boxes consisting of delicious snacks. Target Inc.
