teenage reporter Alec at Indiana Jones 5 premiere

As a 14-year-old teenage reporter, I recently had the incredible opportunity to watch Indiana Jones 5, and let me tell you, it was an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. Armed with my trusty notepad, I was ready to jot down my thoughts and share them with the world.

The show really surprised me with the way the skaters traversed around the ice rink through the use of flips and lifts to bring the fantastical stories from the past 100 years to life as it toured the UK.
