Runner-up in 2015 Family Guide to Jakarta Top Days Out
50 minutes from Jakarta, this is a mini-sized outward bound facility for children. The outward bound playground consists of a series of challenges on rope/wood constructed equipment, with each station getting a little harder (and higher!), culminating in an exciting flying fox ride.
On entry, all children are fitted with a safety harness, helmet and gloves. At each stage they are accompanied by the center’s staff who are safety conscious and reasonably well trained (though not much English spoken). The higher challenges are closely supervised and the children are well clipped in to the safety ropes and supports. Our very short four year old was able to complete the course (with lots of encouragement) and was very proud of herself. Check yourself that the helmet fits and take a camera! Saturdays are quieter than Sundays. Bring lots of water as the area does not have a lot of shade and gets hot. There is a camping ground at the centre and it is possible to arrange guided walks (with the kids carried by porters if you like) to nearby waterfalls and valleys. To get to Outbound Kids take the Bukit Sentul exit off Jagorawi Toll and follow signs for Taman Budaya.
