    Ancol Dreamland

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the largest amusement park in Jakarta. This huge area provides all classes and kinds of entertainment. It was built in Jakarta on reclaimed beach land. Though it is not recommended for swimming any more the beach is still a good place for a walk and a picnic. Ancol is also a gateway for island trips to Kepulauan Seribu (Thousand Islands).

    There is a marina where hundreds of private boats lay anchor every day. The Marina is good spot for marine recreation and sport with lots of facilities, such as water cycles, canoes, sailing boats, and fishing gear. Stalls along the beach serve drinks and snacks while tents are available for sunbathers.

    Ancol is specially designed for family recreation. This place has a water park, theme park (Dunia Fantasi – Fantasy Land), an art market, oceanarium and Seaworld.

    On some events, Ancol will host several entertainments including music performances, wayang kulit (leather puppet), and a firework party.

    Public transport is a bit hard to fine. So again you should take the car. Well, taxi will do too. The beach is dirty in some parts and clean in others. Dunia Fantasy itself is great stuff for the family with lots of exciting rides. It is often updating, and even adding a new rides. Pasar Seni (Art markert) has a good variety of stuff and there is an outdoor stage with live music.

    Jaya Ancol Dreamland & Fantasy Land

    Jakarta Dreamland
    This is Jakarta's largest and most popular recreation park. It is built on reclaimed beach land at the Bay of Jakarta, having, sea and freshwater aquariums, swimming pools, an artificial lagoon for fishing, boating, bowling, an assortment of nightclubs, restaurants, a steam-bath and massage parlors.

    Daily shows are held at the Aquarium where dolphins and sea lions perform. The Ancol complex includes a Marina, Dunia Fantasi (Fantasy Land), a golf course, hotels and a drive-in theater. The 'Pasar Seni' or art market has a varied collection of Indonesian handicraft, paintings and souvenirs on sale.

    At a nearby open-air theater art performances are held using the local dialect.

    Fantasy Land
    A recent addition to Jakarta's growing recreation facilities is the Fantasy Land, a 9.5 hectares (23.75 acres) entertainment park located inside the Ancol Dreamland. Planned to eventually become a part of a 200-hectares (500-acres) park designed to usher the visitors into the fascinating world of modern science and technology, the present facility takes them on an imaginative tour of Old Jakarta, Africa, America, Indonesia, Europe, Asia and the Palace of Dolls. Each of the areas is designed to give the visitor a feel of the region he is visiting through features and architecture of the area at a certain period of its history and by the use of animated puppets in the Palace of Dolls.

    The park also offers a number of restaurants and souvenir shops.

    Dunia Fantasi - Indonesian version of Disneyland

    Ride the

    Dunia Fantasy (Fantasy Land) is a huge amusement park with lots of 'machines' to pump up your adrenalin. Just don't think the rides are as good as in Six Flags or Disney World, but it's the only place in Indonesia :-)
    Try my most favorites rides: Kora-Kora (swing boat), Halilintar (roller coaster) and the newest Kicir-Kicir (power surge). It's cooool!

    You must also spend some time here at Jakarta's all-in-one recreation park located on the waterfront in north Jakarta. There are cultural performances, a fun park (Dunia Fantasy), an art market, golf course, restaurants, a marina, discos and an oceanarium...etc... to capture every visitor's imagination!

    A dolphin jumps up and reach the balls hanging in the air, followed by an impressive backflip, creating a jaw dropping performance.

    fish

    Seaworld in the harbour area, it's a very nice and interesting exohtic aquarium.
    As for other many places, I found it extremely crowded as I was there during school holidays.
