Trans Studio Bandung is an indoor theme park at Gatot Subroto Street, Bandung. It is part of The Trans Studio complex. A one-stop destination with the theme park, a shopping mall, and a luxury hotel. All in one place. The whole complex covers an area of 4,2 hectares.
As a theme park, Trans Studio Bandung claims to be the biggest indoor park in the nation. Trans Studio Bandung is built in 2011. The company behind the creation of this theme park is Trans Corporation. One of a prominent media company in Indonesia. This is why many rides here are inspired by television programs from Trans Corporation’s TV channels.
It even has a broadcast museum. Where visitors can learn about a TV program’s behind-the-scenes. In total, there are 20 rides at Trans Studio Bandung. All in three sections: Studio Central, The Lost City, and Magic World. Studio Central design like Hollywood 60’s theme. Where visitors can find superstars such as Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe.
The Lost city and Magic World inspiration comes from the imaginary worlds. Rides here such as the Amazonian-theme ‘Jelajah’ and the haunted house ‘Dunia Lain’.
Most Favorite Extreme Rides in Trans Studio Bandung
The story of Jack and the beanstalks inspired the ride Negeri Raksasa (The Giant Country). Riders will fall from a 20-meter height to mimic Jack’s escape from the giants. Pemburu Badai (The Storm Hunter) is an upgrade from Negeri Raksasa. The ride drops people from a height of 40 meters. It’s very high, riders will see the whole Bandung city while on top.
The only ride located outdoor, Yamaha Racing Coaster is another visitors’ favorite. The roller coaster is known to be more unpredictable than a regular one. Instead of completing one lap and done. Prepare for a stomach-flipping ride back to the starting point. The whole ride only takes 1 minute as the coaster goes with a blasting speed of 200km/hour.
Adventurous Journey ‘Jelajah’
The water ride ‘Jelajah’ brings visitors deep into the mysterious Amazon. The dark jungle awaits. Its secrets are waiting to be unraveled. Slide through the darkness of the temple ruins. The final challenge is a 13-meter waterfall drop. That guarantees everybody’s clothes to get wet – it’s better to pack a spare shirt beforehand.
Haunted House ‘Dunia Lain’
Dunia Lain, roughly translated as ‘another world’ in English. Once is a popular horror reality TV program. In the show, the hosts would explore haunted places around the country. Trans Studio Bandung attempt to recreate this show’s horror. By building a haunted house with the same name.
Many ghosts and scares here are inspired by the TV show. The journey starts with sounds of crying and screaming. Enough to give goosebumps. Prepare for jumpscares that make the 4-minute journey seemingly has no end.
Plenty of ghosts here are locals and unfamiliar. Foreign visitors might have never heard about these ghosts before. Instead of Dracula or vampire. Meet Kuntilanak, a ghost in a female form known for her eerie laugh and tragic death story.
Trans Studio Bandung Performances & Show
Take a break from rides by enjoying Trans Studio’s shows and performances. There are many shows routinely held here. Such as the magic show “It’s Magic” and opening dance performance every morning. Sometimes, there are also special shows. In December 2018. An international circus group Gravity held a two-weeks performance here.
