“Back Again Just Because Still Need To Explore It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Well this time our 2nd visit to Jatim Park 2 or Batu Secret Zoo. Only the difference is we came in the weekend of low season so there is not too crowded with people and we can get more time to explore most of all games in the fun park. We just skip the zoo part & swimming pool and even in the low season we feel time is not enough to spend in this park. And for price we pay, yes it's fair price for all we get there, many is free facility (not others we may pay more to swim and play on the games). I guess other reviews can describe how well this amusement so this time we want to share some tips...

1. Visiting on Low Season, such NON National Holiday or Long Weekend Holiday, school holiday season will be good. Our experience even in weekend Friday, the park is not too crowded.
2. Start early morning. Park is open at 10.00. As our experience we came at 10.30 but yet we feel we can not explore the whole park completely. A trip from zoo to lunch area is already midday (12.00-13.00), it means we will break to lunch (we love the design of the park they can estimate it the need & place well). But after lunch things tends to go faster, you only have several hours before afternoon, to explore the Games/Fun Park and if decided to swimming (but in reality many skip the pool for some reason they did not bring the suits etc). And imagine if it's crowded on high season, more time needed to queque. TIPS:Around 13.00 they have sealion free show and it's very good show. Then another feeding time in animal farm is good (but beware of ilama they may spitting water on you). Also if you can stay around Batu will be a plus because saved your time.
3. Bring plenty of water (even many kiosk available there to sell snack & drink). Bring hat or umbrella. Even Batu is high cool climate, but in Hot Season, the sun may fell uncomfortable.
4. Decided how you will spend most of the day in park. To see & enjoy animal zoo/show or prefer to play on the funpark (especially who bring children). Usually around 1400-1500 we will finish the main park. But there is still Zoo Museum to enjoy (if you never enter it). As for us we skip the Museum as we have enter it before
5.For Zoo Museum, don't think it's nothing there. For example You can see preserve animal in real size. And bone sample of unique animal we have not seen before. To spend here may need 1-1.5 hrs of time
6. Ofcourse always be careful with your things. For sure we didn't see many chairs provided here. So some time a bench will be crowded with people to sit and be careful not leaving your belonging unwatched.

“Animals around the world in five stars park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Jawa Timur Park 2 has 3 theme parks with different attraction. We bought the continuous ticket for the first two : Museum Satwa (Animal Museum) and Batu Secret Zoo for only Rp 75.000,- (USD 8). First we visited Museum Satwa because it open earlier than Batu Secret Zoo, and we were very surprised with many dioramas showing stuffed animal from around the world. The painting background makes all stuffed animal like in their original place. There also some replica of ancient animals. The collection is amazing!
After that we visited Batu Secret Zoo. Again, we were very surprised with the animal collection from around the world. The setting is also different with other zoo. They put information about all animal and we can find many quiz testing pur knowledge about animal. The area is very big, but they provide e-bike that we can rent. It is very useful for elderly or parent with kid. The distance of the track around the zoo is 4 km. This e-bike really helpful. There is also Fantasy Land inside this zoo and no need to pay more to enjoy it. Many restaurants available inside the zoo. We decided not to enjoy the Fantasy Land so we still can continue to visit the third place : Eco Green Park.
We pay ticket Rp. 40.000 per person. But actually you can buy continuous ticket for all three places. This park focus on bird and go green live. It is still under construction when we visit it, but mostly already finish. The area is less then Batu Secret Zoo. The track lenght is 3 km and we can also rent e-bike here.
We can learn a lot about animal in Jawa Timur Park 2. And we can visit all in one day only.
