Waterparks you have to visit in Jakarta

When the temperature starts to rise, one of the best – or at least one of the most fun – ways to keep cool is to hit the waterpark. If you happen to be visiting Jakarta, there are plenty of waterparks and theme parks to keep you busy, while you stay lovely and cool.

Travelling with kids? While they may not be too interested in visiting museums and temples, kids will definitely enjoy their day at the waterpark. Massive swimming pools, massive water slides and massive fun – what’s not to love? Let’s take a look at some of the best waterparks in Jakarta.

Before you start enjoying some fun time at the waterpark, do make sure you’re covered with Chubb Travel Insurance and enjoy a worry free holiday!

Waterbom Jakarta

For anyone who has visited Waterbom Bali, this waterpark will feel fairly familiar. As part of a chain, Waterbom Jakarta offers an awesome variety of water slides for big kids (and for adults who are young at heart), alongside water play areas for smaller kids.

Jakarta's waterparks you have to visit

Visitors can speed down the Speed Slide, hit the tubes on the Aquatube, launch themselves off The Whizzard and get dizzy on the Twizter. Time for some relaxation? Hire a private cabana for the day, laze by the pool and cool off with snacks and drinks from the food stands.

The Wave Pondok Indah Waterpark

Opened in 2014, The Wave Pondok Indah Waterpark sits alongside the Pondok Indah Mall, offering visitors a great range of pools, waterslides and perhaps one of its biggest attractions, the FlowRider surf machine.

Catch some waves on the surf machine, or laze the day away on the Lazy River. Take to the high seas on the pirate ship, or chill out on the sun loungers. Improve your stroke in the Olympic size swimming pool or let the kids splash and play in the AquaPlay kids’ pool, complete with kid-safe slides.

Ancol Dreamland

Located within the Ancol Bay City, a resort destination located along Jakarta's waterfront, Ancol Dreamland opened in 1966 to become one of Indonesia’s premier tourist destinations. With an abundance of activities to keep visitors entertained, the area features an international championship golf course, a theme park, hotels and a multitude of other recreational facilities.

Check out the rides at Fantasy World, cool off at Atlantis Water Adventure or take in a show at Ocean Dream Samudra. While you’re there, be sure to visit SeaWorld and explore the underwater life within its amazing aquariums. Don’t miss the feeding sessions as you’ll get a chance to see baby crocodiles enjoying their breakfast, and sharks and piranhas snapping up their dinner!

Ocean Ecopark Ancol

While it may not have the thrill rides of a waterpark, Ocean Ecopark Ancol still has plenty to offer. The former golf course provides the perfect place for a stroll within its lush green landscape, where visitors can hire bikes to explore the beautiful pathways, relax with a cup of coffee while enjoying lakeside views, or take to the water on a picturesque boat ride.
