On Monday, 6 July 2015, I celebrated my third anniversary with my boyfriend. I’m so happy he finally granted my one wish to go to a theme park with him (it’s because he doesn’t like theme parks, seems like he can’t enjoy some ride). But today, we went to Dunia Fantasi! Dunia Fantasi is a famous theme park in Indonesia, located in Ancol, North Jakarta. We went there by bus Transjakarta. Since Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) is having a promotional price, we can make an annual pass card by paying the same price as the normal ticket. By showing your annual pass, you can get into Dufan without buying ticket again in a year! We bought our annual pass for IDR 260.000 each.
The first ride we chose is Gajah Bledug (Flying Elephants). So me and my boyfriend sat on a elephant and the elephant started spinning for a few minutes, just like that... Actually there was a lever that should be pulled to make our elephant rise higher, but we didn’t know (nobody told us!) so that was unfortunate. Such a childish ride, I know right! But we arrived at 10 am, just after the Dufan gate opened so most of the rides weren’t available yet (most are available starting 12 am or 1 pm). After that, we rode Baku Toki (bumping cars) too. It was his first experience to ride bumping cars :)
If I’m not mistaken, our next ride was Ontang-Anting. It’s kind of swing that keep spinning faster until we’re lifted higher. I like this ride, but it seems like my boyfriend didn’t (told ya, he doesn’t like theme parks). Next, we queued for Pontang-Pontang. It’s also a spinning ride, from slow to fast, but it keeps changing its spinning pattern. When it turn faster, it’s seriously fast! I kept being ‘pushed’ to him!
FYI, there are some famous restaurants inside the theme park area like McDonalds, Yoshinoya, and Baso A Fung. We had lunch at Yoshinoya for IDR 25.000 each. That's pretty cheap for a lunch in Dufan since some prices got more expensive in Dufan. Mine was chicken crunch and his was chicken katsu. Including rice and ocha drink. Well, I won't say that it was a big portion, but I think it was enough for me (but I don't think he was satisfied with his lunch, you know, fat people :))).
My favorite ride is the Ice Age Arctic Adventure. I love this ride sooo much because it's very cool inside the ride (yup, it's an indoor ride) and we got pretty wet. I like wet rides! Besides, I like Ice Age movie and characters. Don't you think friendship between Manny, Diego, and Sid is so cute? After the Arctic Ride, we also rode the Kontiki Ride. It's like we're riding a boat sailing during a storm, sliding and spinning around. xD
Near the Ice Age Ride, there is the Hello Kitty Fun Ride. I don't think it's actually a 'fun ride' because it's only some rooms with Hello Kitty themed decorations, and a theater room showing short Hello Kitty cartoons. I bet Hello Kitty addicts will love it here, but I don't really interested to this ride. In the front of the Hello Kitty Ride entrance, there were a Hello Kitty merchandise store (the store is very cute!) and some snack stalls. I bought a dessert named Matcha Sakura at Snowbelle Ice stall for IDR 22.000. It tasted nice but too bad mine didn't look photogenic :))

*sorry for not wearing my slippers properly lol* I took those photos when it was a few hours left before the theme park get closed at 5 pm. We left at around 4.30 pm after him letting me ride the Niagara-gara (a wet ride, and he hates wet rides) once and Hysteria (he hate that one too). Niagara-gara was really fun! I'm not satisfied just by riding it onceeeeeeeeeee! I really go back to Dufan soon and use my annual pass card :))
We took these photos before going back home and as I said, no chance to took photos of both of us. We tried to ask a man once, but his shot turned out so bad! But I really enjoyed my third anniversary day so much. I felt like didn't want to go back home! It's not the place that made me happy, but the time I spent with him just became my perfect happiness. I'm glad I can keep him in these three years. Of course a lot of fights had happened, but we got though it and still boyfriend and girlfriend until now! I hope we'll still a couple next year so we can go somewhere together again! :b
