Bandung Carnival Land


Hello everyone, how's your weekend? Today I want to share my story visiting the Bandung Carnival Land, a local amusement park in my city. I rare to go to playground unless with my whole big family. That's why when my mom and lil bro asked me to accompany them last weekend I easily accepted them. Moreover, I didn't have anything much to do at office and my job seemed pretty easy to handle, so I took my day off and went with them, what a great escape!

It's located at Jl. Sirnagalih No.15, Karangsetra, Bandung, around 30 minutes from my place, but on weekend it'll take around 1 hour to reach it due the traffic jam. It was hard to find the location at first since we were lack of information about how to get there, but glad we didn't take much time to arrive.

I could say that Bandung Carnival Land (BCL) is a mid-range local amusement park, you can't compare it with Trans Studio Bandung or another extreme, Dunia Fantasi, Jakarta, cause they're simply different and you can easily spot it based on the entrance fee. The fee type is various; it depends on whether you're going to the amusement park only and/or the swimming pool. I didn't go to the swimming pool unfortunately so I couldn't inform you about it, in fact the entrance to enter the amusement park and the pool itself was different.

This is the entrance to Bandung Carnical Land (The Amusement Park)
The distance between the main gate to the BCL entrance was quiet far! Good for exercising. There you can see through the picture the BCL main gate. Once we arrived, we must choose what type of ticket we would like to buy, it ranges within IDR 15,000 - 30,000 (the expensive one included all games you can play but for only for one-time).

Buy your ticket here
So we bought the all-in ticket just to make us easier to play all the games. Before we walk through the gate, we were given a wrist-band to sign every mark from the game we've played, will show you later about this.

Enter the BCL Gate here

This will be given after you buy the ticket
The first thing you'd see once you pass the gate is a big trampouline which I assume will fit more than 10 kids inside it, but sadly I forgot to take the picture knowing that I wouldn't get into it, so instead I took the direction board of the BCL which would show you the way for each game, there is Lampion Garden, Mangkok Tsunami (Tsunami Bowl), Ulat Gila (Insane Worm), Buah Terbang (Flying Fruits), Cinema 4D, Rumah Hantu (Haunted House), Bom-bom Car, Mobil Gila (Crazy Car), etc.

Check the sign-board to direct you where are you going to
Oh, along that, there's also a big slider near Mobil Gila zone but I don't know what kind of game it offered since there was no one there to play.

Mangkok Tsunami
My first game was playing this Mangkok Tsunami with my mother, the game was about you'd sit on a rounding look-alike boat while you'd also rotated, and it wasn't a good start after all, my mom got dizzy easily and gave up to continue the rest games, lol! But I played twice!

Round and Round, Mangkok Tsunami will make you dizzy!
Buah Terbang
Next is Buah Terbang, or if you've ever visited Dunia Fantasi, it was similar like ontang anting, like a flying swinger, this was my favourite but it didn't fly as high as ontang anting. There are two types of Buah Terbang considering the passenger age; the children and the adults, my lil bro who's still 9 yo took the children zone while I was taking the adult's one.

Buah Terbang for adult, I enjoy the swing and the breeze here!

Cinema 4D
Cinema 4D is a small movie room for you to watch an adventure movie, it's similar like a mere 3D studio but.. what makes it into 4D was because you can really feel the water being splashed on you! I'm sorry I couldn't go with the detail since it's forbidden to take a picture inside the cinema. But over all it was exciting, it's just the sound quality of the room was not good enough, I couldn't hear the voice properly, so I didn't know about the main plot of the story.

Rumah Hantu (Haunted House)
Sorry for another dissapointment, but I didn't go to the Haunted House, since my mom was too tired and too scared to visit this zone and my lil bro had gone all his own leaving me alone (just fyi, I'm a coward). I was so curious yet I didn't brave enough, duh! So please forgive me for only can give you the picture of the house' facade.

Bom-bom Car & Mobil Gila (Crazy Car)
My another favourite attraction zone, since I couldn't drive, lol. It's nice to play bom-bom car and to bump another car without a care. I played this with my lil bro and I thought he hated me cause I bumped him several times. However, the different between Bom-bom car and Mobil gila was the car size only, mobil gila suits every age while the smaller bom-bom car is only for children.

MOBIL GILA
Mirror House
aka Rumah Kaca is a small room surrounded by mirror and glass, it was like a labyrinth where you have to find your way out, but I found mine less than 2 minutes! Yes, it was really small, so I took my time just to create some self-cam. Ah~~~

Air Bicycle
This zone is another of my favs, it's a mini tracked-bicycle, we have to keep cycling it in order for it to move, if we stop then the bicycle won't move either. Definitely another form of sport! But I definitely enjoy the sceneries from above and took some great shots here! Oh, yeah, the track was longg!!! And some times I was quiet scared how if the bicycle got off of the track and fell down.. But it didn't happen, thanks GOD!

Reversed House
Another zone is the reversed house, it's not a game, but just showing you a house with every furnitures got upside down. It didn't have many things to observe but still good place to visit.

Ulat Gila
Next is Ulat Gila, the last game I played as I remember. It was similar like a mini roller-coaster with medium speed and medium track length, also intended for kids, so don't expect too much for adults. Let's play this for fun, okay :)

Bandung Carnival Land

The Foodcourt
So after several hours playing, I felt so tired and hungry and decided to have some lunch at their foodcourt. BCL doesn't have so many food stalls around the zone, so people are directed to visit their foodcourt only, which I think they didn't have much varieties in menu too.

So I ended up ordering ayam penyet from Resto Maharani (though perhaps it was better to bring our own lunch box, ha!).

Photo Session
After that I only spend the time by doing photo shoots, I made so many pictures there that I won't show you, lol!
Bandung Carnival Land

In the end, I was enjoying my time being in Bandung Carnival Land, perhaps it's not the best ever, just like what I've said; you can't compare it with the bigger one, but this one is enough to have a short weekend trip with your family, fun without spending money too much.
And this is the final look of my wrist band!

Hope you enjoy my post! See you and have a great day :)
