Tips for you
Was here with my kids. Arrived in the morning and the queue was long even the ticketing counters weren't opened yet. Finally headed towards the GFF member lines just next to the hotel where the queue was not as bad as the normal tickets. Bought tickets to include the other attractions: Museum Satwa (if you've seen "Night at the Museum" movie, this museum is so much similar -- only that it displays animals from around the world only), and the Secret Zoo (where you could see different of unique, endangered live animals). I suggest you buy the whole package cause it's worth it. We rented the E-bike (3 hours for around IDR 100k, if not mistaken) and it was very useful. To get the e-bike, you'd need to turn in your driving license or ID card for guarantee that you'd return the e-bike upon finished at your departure to the E-bike counter. Plenty of E-bikes, so no need to worry of not getting it (although be aware if it's peak season). So, the animals look well fed, clean and happy. The whole Jatim Park 2 compound also was well-attended and cared of. You'll get a map to direct you around the park, but it basically leads you to finish looking at the animals, then towards the theme park, which is quite a fun place too! They have roller coasters, pirate-ship/galleon, arcades, haunted house, etc. Food stalls available all around and the price is very reasonable. E-bike parking area is also available everywhere. Just don't forget to take your E-bike key before you leave it to ride some roller coasters for precautions.... You will definitely find so much FUN at this place. I, as an adult, even went on every ride with my kiddos and we all found bonding times here are one of the BEST :) Thank you, Jatim Park 2 Management and Staff for taking care of this park and for making Indonesians proud of your existence.
Really great place to spend your whole day with family!!!! Highly recommended.
