Dunia Fantasi: Chill Out Apr 11, 2011
Dunia Fantasi or otherwise known as Fantasy World situated in Ancol Dreamland, home of around 23 fantastic rides and other special shows.
Among its most popular attractions are the Halilintar twisted roller coaster ride, Niagara flume ride, Istana Boneka (a local version of Disney's It's a Small World) and Balada Kera (Monkey Parody – animatronics show) Theater show. Other attractions include Bianglala (ferris wheel), Kora-Kora (swinging ship), Poci-Poci (spinning cups ride), and Hysteria. Several of the latest and newest rides are Kicir-Kicir (Power Surge), Perang Bintang (Star Wars) - an interactive dark ride, Meteor Attack and Tornado (Windshear by Zamperla).
Best to go here is during week days where only small crowd is visible. It would be best if you make a call to their office before visiting it to know if there are group trippings or what they called in Indonesia as "rombongan" to minimize a long queue for each rides.
If you planned to bring your children, make sure you have your nannys with you to take care of them. Dufan is too crowded and so its so tiring to bring them there.
Ancol Dreamland can easily be reached by car, motorcycle, taxi or the TransJakarta Busway. Dufan entrance ticket costs IDR 155,000. Very affordable and great for family day out and relaxation.
It is open daily from 11:00 - 18:00 and 11:00 - 20:00 every weekends.
