Penguin Waterpark in Bekasi City, West Java Province
It is common sense each waterpark is different as compared to others, especially when it is related to the theme. Let’s take an example like Penguin Waterpark in Bekasi City. Unfortunately, tourists won’t find any penguin there despite the name. The theme is a total swimming experience instead. That means the site provides vast and comfortable pools for both adults and kids. That means the prime allure is the size of the pools itself instead of the variety of water rides as compared to other waterparks. So, where is it? The location is in Mekarmukti Village and it belongs to Cikarang Utara Sub-District.
Even though Penguin Waterpark is not popular as others, it becomes the pride of the locals. Many people even say it has the widest swimming pool as compared to others. Also, it comes with many options of pools designated for different ages. For the information, the shallowest one is meant for babies, having the depth of around 10 cm. What about the rides? The spiral water slide is installed in the kids’ pool, which has the depth of 1 meter. As for the ornaments, tourists may find a mushroom statue located in the midst of the waterpark. Usually, people use it to rest and avoid the heat of the sun.
Exploring Penguin Waterpark
Penguin Waterpark was built to accommodate all guests regardless of the age. This explains why parents with toddlers can enjoy swimming and playing water comfortably there. Thanks to the presence of 10-cm pool. That pool even comes with unique showers, which provide both fun and comfort to the users. For advanced kids and adults, though, they should use the deeper pool in order to get a more challenging experience.
Have no worries. Even though Penguin Park focuses more on giving a thorough swimming experience to the guests, it also comes with excellent facilities. These include toilets, small canteen, and services where tourists can rent a water tube. After swimming and playing water, it is recommended to eat some foods at the canteen where everyone can buy simple foods like fries and instant noodles. Actually, it is allowed to carry foods and drinks from home as long as everyone takes care of the trash later.
According to regulars, they love to come to Penguin Waterpark due to several reasons. For instance, it is the cheaper ticket as compared to other water parks in Bekasi City. Also, unlike others, tourists can bring foods and drinks to the site. That means they don’t need to spend more money if they want to eat or drink later. Once again, no one is allowed to spoil the environment!
