2019 Top family activities in Batam that makes you go wow

Okay, if you’re looking for a family day out — and I know you are, because who only wants family days in, that’s a recipe for arguments about arguments about other arguments — then you need to hit six — yes, six! — places in Batam that will get you out of your comfort zone and into your fun zone. If you can hit all six in one day, you’re the awesomest family in history. If you have to spread them out, and still hit all six, then you’re the second awesomest family in history. Either way, do these, and awesome will ensue.

For families, especially a large group, highly recommended to charter a car since some areas are control by local taxi drivers and you could not use Grab or Gojek.

1. Sea Forest Adventure Park

First up, Sea Forest Adventure Batam, a 10 hectares park filled with many outdoor activities. We tried the Aqua Adventure Track. It’s like how we would have to play if the whole world turned to water like in that movie about the whole world turn to water, what was it called again (Waterworld. Yep.) It’s like the Olympics meets a bouncy house, with guards to keep you from drowning (that’s a plus). I wish the whole world was an Aqua Track. Turn on all the bathtubs, see if we can make that happen.

Just like the movie Waterworld.

2. The Illusion

Second stop, do you like to look weird? Like, even weirder than when you first wake up in the morning? Then we’ve got the place for you. The Illusion. The whole place is a series of skewed rooms designed by local artists who want to get you to see things a little (make that a lot) differently.

You can stick to walls, grow up (some of you need to), or down, you can dance like Michael Jackson (yes, even Dad, and his complete lack of rhythm or body control can do it).

3. Funworld Nagoya Citywalk

You’ve still got energy after waterworld and illusion world, so hit up Funworld. Located inside Nagoya Citywalk, this is a child-friendly mini-amusement park (so much more fun than the child-unfriendly ones, where they knock the ice cream out of your kid’s hand and untie his shoes).

It is not spinning that fast

There are indoor roller coasters and bumper cars (those two are separate rides, although how fun would it be if there were roller coaster bumper cars?). There are carousel swings and carnival games (like “Guess If Your Carney Has a GED!). Go. At the very least the lights will mesmerize the kids, and you’ll get a few minutes of peace while they’re dazed.

Exhaust your kid so you could sleep at night

4. Batam Miniature House

Stop Four on your six-stop tour of Batam’s family fun life is the Batam Miniature House. It’s only a stone’s throw from major hotels (but don’t test that by throwing stones from your hotel, these are a mini-houses, they can’t take pelting).

Houses build for kids

It contains 30 exact replicas of traditional Indonesian homes, all the way down to the mother-in-law complaining that they aren’t clean enough! Seriously, a great way to get fast history into the kids’ brains, while also making them feel huge, and who doesn’t want huge-thinking kids (Honey, I Huged the Kids! No, I didn’t hug them, I huge-d them!)

Price : Free

5. Belalang Adventure

Darts, for adults.

The fifth stop might just stop your heart, because there is way more excitement at Belalang Adventure than at Belalang Non-Adventure (which is a really, really boring place, so don’t go there, even if it did actually exist, which it doesn’t.) Camping, paintball wars, jungle treks, obstacle courses, water bikes — and that’s all before they let you eat breakfast! Nah, you can eat breakfast any time, although you may want to keep the bacon out of the paintball, the enemy can sniff that stuff out, and then your goose is cooked. Can we get any more food analogies stuffed into this exciting review? Probably. But lettuce just say, a day at Belalang Adventure and your entire family will be fried.

6. Mega Wisata Ocarina Batam

Okay, so, you’re at your sixth and final Batam family attraction on this whirlwind six-attraction tour. You’re probably thinking, eh, we’ve done almost everything the planet has to offer. Let’s see what these guys have, and then just head on back home.

Except you haven’t seen it all. You haven’t seen or gone Mega. And mega means Mega Wisata Ocarina Batam. Over 40 hectares filled with rides gone wild. A waterpark, a go-kart circuit, endless sites to see, and the grand attraction that is going to gawk and gasp the entire family, the giant wheel of 16 gondolas that rises 25 meters to show you a view of this amazing park that should only be available to sea gulls or flying seals (there aren’t flying seals, but it would be cool if there were; maybe sometime in the future).
