Jakarta stores tons of activity ideas to do for your kids, or for the whole family to enjoy. Here are our picks of things to do to keep your little ones busy and happy!
1. Trampoline Parks
In this park, kids will literally bounce off the wall with excitement! Let them do all sorts of jumping, running up a wall, bouncing for fun, slam dunking or maneuvering all day long. Other than the trampolines, the foam pits, Bounce also has the Aero Ball, a combination of volleyball and basketball where two players stand in separate cages and shoot the ball in the other ones goal.
There’s also the fun Spider Tower a spherical maze where kids can climb and slide down into the foam pit below. The Gladiator War Zone enables you to battle an opponent standing on a narrow beam and try to knock them off.
