This is one of the biggest indoor theme park i've seen, we actually enjoy all the ride there, though it is abit small but it wasn't overpriced.

Admission
On a weekday, it cost Rp150,000 per person whilst on a weekend, the entrance fee becomes Rp250,000. Express pass (or VIP access) cost Rp150,000 on top of admission fee. As the park is using card system, those who have not yet have the card, need to pay extra Rp10,000 to buy the prepaid card. Whilst for international standard this would be categorized as cheap, but still it's not value for money.... Here's why...
Opening Scene
I went on a weekday and the place was deserted. The park opened at 10am, Prior to park opening, there was a pre-show which was some sort of dances performed by gate attendants. It was successfully becoming a crowd puller, but nothing much after that.
Entrance
Security will search thoroughly as outside food and drink is not allowed to be brought into the park. After that, your prepaid card will be scanned and the amount of admission fee will be deducted. You can top up your prepaid card at several points inside the park.
First land: Studio Central
Those will find it eeriely similar to Universal Studio's New York section or Disneyland's main street where brick walled facade of various buildings are lining up the black "painted asphalt" flooring. This area is the main street of Trans Studio and named Studio Central. The themeing is retro Hollywood with the focal point is the 70s diner called "Corvette Diner" serving burgers and popular fast food items.
The racing coaster won't open until noon (it's the only ride which goes outdoor as majority of the track of the coaster are located outdoor and can be seen from outside). Dunlop Trans Car Racing is a copy of autopia but which more speed... There is a photographer at the beginning of your ride to take your photo and the track is quite lengthy which is a good thing. But one will feel bored since no one around is riding and it felt like you're racing in an empty space... To make it worst, few derelict cars which were out of service were left scattered throughout the arena. Marvel Superheroes 4D was the weakest 4D simulator I've been through. The graphic was so fake and the special effect was totally a joke. One can't even feel the squirting water or the blowing wind effect. The worst came from the ride operator herself. In the preshow, she warned everyone that if one unbuckled the seat belt during the ride, she will abruptly stop the ride and told everyone to leave. It was exactly what she did during the ride! She rudely stopped the ride and told us that one had unbuckled the seatbelt and told us to leave!!! Unbelievable!
After being shocked by the attitude of the operator, I continued my exploration. The broadcasting museum is pretty interesting, but all information was in Indonesian. Not much attraction left for adult in this section other than the giant swing which was supposed to be a thrill ride but lack of themeing.
Second Land: Lost City
The copy of "night version" of adventureland with its jungle themeing. Jelajah is the river rapid ride with mixed between lost inca temple theme and plane wreckage... I did not try as it's the only ride that will get you wet in the whole park. Sky pirates was the floating gondola where riders were taken on a sightseeing journey throughout the small section of the park. The last ride is Kong Climb which supposed to be a regular wall climbing exercise dubbed as a ride.
Third land: Magic Corner
Is a hybrid between Harry Potter's land and haunted house. Many people will recognized instantly "harry" is duelling with a witch in a fountain in the middle of the land. Again, many kids rides can be found with adults may enjoy Dragon Riders which is slightly more fun than regular "Dumbo", adult version of jumping frog themed after jack and the beanstalk, and haunted house called "Dunia Lain" which feature horror urban legends of Indonesia. However, I found it to be so fake, it's not frightening at all, and tend to be boring.
Show and Parade: majority of the show and parade is held in the afternoon. All shows are conducted in Indonesian and foreigners might not understand at all.
Food and drink:
Studio Central has "corvette diner" which feature american fast food items and Studio Mie which feature noodle dishes. Lost City has Studio Kuring which served local western Javanese food and Magic Corner has Studio Bento which served bento dishes. On top of that, one can find Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf outlet, a Baskin Robbin outlet, and fast food cart called "Studio Chicks" which sells fried chicken. All outlets are operated by the company. Prices are theme park standard.
Retail outlet:
Unlike Disneyland or Universal Studios where one section of the park (or "land") typically sell items unique to the theme, Trans Studio retail outlets sell generic items to the park. Thus, it's no different on the collection of the retail shop you'll find outside the park with those scattered throughout the park making retail far less appealing.
Entertainment:
on a weekday, I only saw one singing/band performance at a mini-stage near the entrance (just before Corvette Diner
Crowd:
It was really deserted during my visit but maybe it will be full of family during weekends and school holidays. I recommend those who are seeking to ride particular rides several times to come on a weekday; it's cheaper, no queue, and definitely more value for your money.
Verdict:
Crew attitude at particular ride (e.g. Simulator ride) could have been trained to handle the situation better, other than that the rest of the crew was pretty nice. Ride selection could have been better for adults and the current one might attract kids more. In all, it's still lack of themeing (constant theme) and still feels like a "patchwork" theme park rather than the original one...
Caution: not all rides are wheelchair accessible. Whilst it is not mandatory in Indonesia to have everything to be wheelchair accessible, this park will have a big problem should the law is to be implemented in Indonesia...

Having read other reviews, one cannot compare this theme park with the likes of Disneyland or Universal Studios for sure. After all, it's 150k only and certainly cannot expect the world from this place. Oh, for travellers who took Merpati or Air Asia flights into Bandung, be sure to bring your boarding passes along for a 20% discount off entry tics.

While it's great that it is an indoors kind of a park and away from heat of the sun, we covered the place in no time especially when the roller coaster was always under maintenance every now and then. My 8 years old girl enjoyed most of the thrill rides cos she has got simply no fear for such. The one she raved about most was The Giant Swing, which she took a couple of times.
This ride was hell for people with fears for heights.
There was a performance on the atrium stage which appeared impressive with the stunts and choreography of their dances although traditional. Costumes were awesome too.

Rock Climbing was a real challenge but great intro for amateurs. Other than these few, there is a haunted house called Dunia Lain. For those who watch Indo movies and do not fancy the scary ones, this place captures the same essence. Skip it.

One crucial info for all visitors, the park does all of their transactions via a cashcard which can be topped up any moment over most counters. Although, it was a pain to topping up every now and then when we needed, it was still ok for us since there were many counters eased this issue.

I was expecting too much before I came here as its advertising and reviews are good. This indoor theme park is not as big as you can imagine with only few attractions. The rides are pretty short and the queues are beyond what will you get. Anyway, it's worth a try but don't expect it too much.

Total rip-off, don't bother. I know SE Asian theme parks are not the world's best, but I've been to a few and believe me this is the worst value for money ever.

For a start, despite TransStudio advertising saying babies are free, they're not. Yeah, you pay $50 for the honor of bringing your baby in. Inside, it is pathetic - one or two mildly interesting rides - the kind you'd see at any B grade minor city theme park in developed markets, and there's a particular scenic ride that is a bit of fun. But it's not $50 dollars per person worth of fun.

Save the anger I felt from this rip-off and don't go.
