TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Ancol Dreamland Park in North Jakarta will temporarily shut down its operations again starting Thursday, June 24, in line with the extension of the micro-scale public activity restrictions or Micro PPKM policy (PPKM) in the capital.
The city-owned firm PT Pembangunan Jaya Ancol Corporate Secretary, Agung Praptono, said the temporary closure is a form of support for government policies. “And to suppress the spread of Covid-19 which is currently increasing,” said Agung in a written statement on Wednesday, June 23.
The Jakarta provincial government has decided to extend the Micro PPKM from June 22 to July 5, 2021. The policy is tightened compared to the previous one due to the skyrocketing number of Covid-19 cases.
Agung said that the recreational areas that will be closed include the beach area, Dunia Fantasi (Dufan) amusement park, Sea World, Ocean Dream Samudra, Allianz Ecopark, and Pasar Seni or Art Market. The closure starts June 24, 2021, until further notice.
Meanwhile, the Putri Duyung Ancol hotel and marine transportation to the Thousand Islands or Pulau Seribu via Marina Pier still open under strict health protocols.
