Am I using the word pungent correctly in this sentence:
I almost gagged from the pungent odor of smoke.
Am I using an apostrophe correctly in this sentence:
My little sister couldn't sleep in the crib located in my parents' room forever.
Also, can I have a good synonym for the word experience or adventure?

I'm not sure about the first sentence, but the second sentence is definitely correct.
Experience: encounter, episode, incident, ordeal, trial.
Adventure: endangerment, journey, undertaking, venture, occurence.
Hope I helped! :-)

Yes, you are using the word pungent correctly in the sentence. You are also correct in using the apostrophe the way you have. A good synonym for the word experience or adventure could be: voyage, expedition, escapade, journey.
