And using "it" or "that" depends somewhat on the context, that is, the sentences beforehand.

Assuming you want to talk more about how much fun the rides were, rather than how well-designed, a native US English speaker would be more likely to say something like, "It was awesome!"

In the past, fifty years ago were the houses next to each other. And relatives live next to each other. Also, the area was small and limited ; so there was almos daily communication between people.They were talking with each other face to face. But if we look today with the means of technology, we find that the situation has differed. Now, I communicate with my grandparents by voice calls, and sometimes via video calls because they live far away, in another city. Also, I use these ways with friends, but sometimes I communicate with them by social networking such as Whatsapp, Twitter, and Snapchat. In addition we visit each other from time to time.
As for my parents, I live with them so I don't need any means to communicate with them.
A: "In the past, 50 years ago" seems redundant. Either say 50 years ago or in the past. They both give the same meaning to the audience.
