Taman Impian Jaya Ancol (Ancol Dreamland Park) in North Jakarta will reopen to public on June 20.

According to a press release, Ancol management is preparing health protocols for the amusement park and tourism complex to operate within the Jakarta's "transition" period into the so-called "new normal" era.

Along with new and stricter protocols, the management has also prepared specially discounted admission fees in June.

The new protocols include not allowing children younger than 5 years old, pregnant women or senior citizens to enter the recreation area. All visitors will have to undergo temperature checks prior to passing the Ancol entry gate and all recreation units. Visitors whose temperatures exceed 37.3 degrees Celsius will not be allowed to enter the premises.

Tickets will be sold through cashless transactions only, and entry tickets will be sold online on the park's website starting on June 13.

All visitors will be required to wear facemasks at all time, carry hand sanitizers and wash their hands as often as possible at handwashing facilities that will be provided at every corner. Physical distancing is also going to be enforced in every area, to ensure visitors keep a distance of 1.5 to 2 meters from each other.

The recreation units in Ancol Dreamland Park will be opened gradually. The first ones include Ancol Beach, Allianz Ecopark, Art Market, Fantasy Land (Dufan), Ocean Dream Samudra and Sea World, as well as restaurants within the Ancol area and Putri Duyung Resort Hotel.

The units will operate under staggered opening hours. For instance, the main gate and the beach will open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., Dufan will open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., while Ocean Dream Samudra and Seaworld will open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (gis/wng)
