Sibling to the hugely popular Waterbom Bali, Waterbom Jakarta is a North Jakarta water park. Occupying around 9 acres (4 hectares) of landscaped grounds in Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK), it offers slides, artificial waves, a lazy river, and areas for younger kids. There are a range of food options as well as gazebos for rent.
Waterbom Jakarta operates a 2-tier pricing system. Tickets are less expensive during the working week, while prices rise for weekends and public holidays, which sometimes see special events. The North Jakarta location puts Waterbom a little off the tourist map. While it’s popular with Jakarta locals and expats, few tours visit here, although it’s easy to request a stop as part of a private tour or with a private driver. There are fewer rides and slides than at Waterbom Bali.

How to Get There
