Description: Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) Ancol is a large theme park in Jakarta. Follow these rules and suggestions to make your trip there more convenient.
Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) Ancol is a household name among Indonesians. Situated in Jakarta, it is one of the most popular theme parks in Indonesia. The theme park has been operating for more than 34 years. It is not only popular among Jakarta citizens, but also Indonesians outside Jakarta and even travelers abroad.
Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) Ancol has about 26 outdoor rides and four indoor ones. It has complete facilities such as snack stalls, clinic, and souvenir shops. Despite Dufan’s size and popularity, the ticket price is considered affordable for most visitors, from solo travelers to families. It is still a popular place for people to spend their weekends or holidays, despite the opening of newer travel destinations in Jakarta.
How to make your visit more convenient? Make sure you prepare properly for the trip and follow the rules. Here are some do’s and don’ts you should follow when visiting this theme park.
Like any other popular theme parks, Dufan is almost always packed, especially during weekends and national holidays. To avoid crowds, visit the park earlier (preferably around two or three hours before lunchtime). The park will be less crowded, and you don’t need to stand in line too long to try every ride.
Dufan is a massive theme park. Exploring it can be quite exhausting, especially with Indonesia’s hot and humid climate. Bring enough water from home to anticipate thirst and dehydration. If you travel in a group, make sure each person carries a water bottle.
You will walk a lot when visiting Dufan. Make sure to wear light outfits that will absorb the sweat and cool you off. Wear comfortable outfits that are ideal for long-distance walking, such as tennis shoes or hiking sandals. Wear proper socks to avoid soreness.
Dufan has a lot of popular rides, so don’t be surprised when you find a long line in front of every ride, especially during holidays and weekends. Regardless of the crowd level, make sure you always follow the rules. Avoid doing things like cutting in line and upsetting others.
Planning your exploration inside Dufan will save so much time, including choosing which rides to try first. Visit Dunia Fantasi’s official website to see the park’s map. See the description of each ride and plan your exploration from start to finish. This way, you can explore the park with a more efficient schedule.
When Dufan is crowded, finding the end of a line in front of a ride can be confusing. Make sure you never cut the line, and always respect other people. If you are unsure about where to stand and wait for the ride, ask the staff or someone nearby.
Enthusiasm can suppress your appetite. However, visiting with a hungry stomach is a big mistake. You could feel weak, experience sickness, or even faint if you don’t eat anything before. If you cannot eat something heavy, eat protein-rich breakfast food, such as a meat sandwich or banana and peanut butter. Dufan has snack stalls and cafeteria, but bringing your own snacks will save you extra money.
Littering is a big “no” in Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) Ancol. It will make you look bad and annoy other people. Dufan has trash bins spread in all parts of the park. Keep your trash in your pocket if you haven’t found a trash bin nearby.
Pack lightly before you visit any theme park, including Dufan. Carrying too many stuff will trouble and exhaust you. You can also experience difficulties in trying the rides if you carry so many things. Ideally, you should bring a mini travel backpack that can store simple travel essentials.
Dufan may be a theme park, but it requires a lot of energy to explore. If your condition is bad, the rides may cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and fainting. Forcing yourself to go while being sick will ruin your holiday.
Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) Ancol is a fun theme park to visit with your families or friends. Enjoy the rides and bring back your inner child in this popular Indonesian theme park.
