Nature at the heart of US$500m Indonesia theme park plan
POSTED 09 Nov 2015 . BY Tom Anstey
A massive new attraction is coming to Asia after plans were revealed for a US$500m (€464.5m, £331.5m) theme park and resort development just outside the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.

Created by themed entertainment specialists Zeitgeist Design + Production (ZD+P) the immersive theme park experience in the Lido Lakes region of Java will be set across 40 hectares of land. According to ZD+P, the design “bucks the trend of Hollywood studio theme park and IP-based attractions”, instead celebrating the park’s natural setting, incorporating natural canyons, jungles, riverbeds and an expansive lake into the design, while also sitting in the shadow of two large volcanoes.

To feature a collection of adventure-themed rides, shows and attractions, the park will be split across six themed areas, with different original characters based on Indonesian culture ‘living’ in each territory. In addition to rides and other attractions, the theme park will be home to two family hotels and a retail/entertainment center, which will be located just outside the park’s main gate.

While few details have been released, the park will incorporate technology, using wristbands and smart phones to “bring the story to life in ways yet unseen in a theme park”.

One of Indonesia’s leading investment companies – Media Nusantara Citra Group (MNC) is behind the plans, with the original stories at the park to be told through the MNC media network, which controls the largest market share in Southeast Asia.

“We are humbled to be chosen by MNC Group to develop the Lido Lakes theme park from the proverbial blank sheet of paper,” said Ryan Harmon, president and chief experience officer at ZD+P. “The site is beautiful and the company has a rare vision to create something fresh and exciting – and do things the right way. Our goal is to spend the next four years designing and producing the most beautiful, magical, and immersive family entertainment experience in Southeast Asia, if not the world.”
