Exploring abandoned Theme Park Sanur Bali
Mar 2020 • Solo
Taman Festival Bali, Padang Galak

BEAUTIFUL AND CREEPY Abandoned Abandoned theme park from the 1990s is located in Sanur Bali Indonesia that became a ghost town.

It is surrounded by jungle and trees taking over the structures. Now it has graffiti decorating its structures, graffiti park now.
It is said it was struck by lightning on Friday 13th and had financial and land issues they couldn’t come back from it.

It is said that the Balinese people believe this abandoned site is occupied by spirits and thought to be one of the most haunted places in Bali, attracting spirits from all over the island.

They say it’s a ghost town and there are spirits in there. I believe in that and when you go you can feel an eerie vibe for sure.

Wow, what an unbelievable place. I was overwhelmed by the amazing and incredible graffiti art.
I went during the day and happy I did... lol

I was the only one there and I started to creep myself out. The property is huge and lots of areas to explore.
WEAR Shoes are better than sandals as there is a lot of broken glass and titles.

The men at the gate were very friendly. The one-man says he stays there and will share stories with you. I love the locals they are always so friendly and willing to chat with you.

I paid $2 for a fee and could park my scooter right there. It’s very casual and not a formal ticket booth
Highly recommended during the light.. lol

Fun
Jul 2020 • Couples
Beach fee $2,000/ person
Entrance fee $20,000/person

Lots of fun and interesting art work.
We took flash lights to see better in the upstairs in the theatre and walking through parts by the mountain.

Lots of mosquitos take bug spray.

Awesome dayactivity in Bali
Feb 2020
It was such a cool place to explore. It wasn't scary like we expected. But more like extremely impressed with all the graffiti and buildings. There's an entrance fee 20K IDR and that makes it feel even safer. And there are no people around, so it's a real adventure.

Mostly Graffitis + Leftover Structures
Mar 2020
We had Bakso across the park first before entering. There's a guard sitting at the entrance collecting money. Typical! Putting a table there and making money out of smth that he probably didn't even contribute to =.=

Anyways there is a ramp at the right side of the building at the front, we quietly walked up and you will see like a green creature graffiti. Go towards the right and walk straight in, you will come out into an area ahead of the guard. He might still be able to see you so quietly walk towards the left, pass his station then take like a path down and continue exploring.

I guess we were lucky that he was pacing and not just sitting at his table, made it easier to sneak pass him. Anyways there are lots of graffitis/artworks that probably looks nothing related to the amusement park.

Make sure you wear shoes, some part of the ground is wet and disgusting.
Some areas that are not touched by sunlight feels extra creepy.
There was one group of foreigners when we were there, either than that you have the whole place to yourself.
For me if I would have paid the entrance fee, I would have felt that it was not worth it at all no matter how cheap.

Good to see but disappointing as well.
Jan 2020
Google History: (Costing a whopping $100 million to build, the park was to feature Bali’s biggest swimming pool, an inverted roller coaster, a 3D cinema and an exciting laser show. However, for ambiguous reasons, the park never opened its doors.) Apparently no one really knows why? Year around 1998.
There is really not much left to see. Only shells of walls & buildings floor tiles ripped up, statutes destroyed (except for 2 dragons). You can see it was something once but what a shame. My son told me it was free to go in but I was happy to pay locals 20,000 Rp. $2 Aus to go in. Great spot near the beach but so much growth even inside many buildings. Bats flying around some of them but you can certainly see it was a grand place once. In 20 years it is pretty much totally destroyed. I was there for around 90 minutes. Still worth a look see. But make sure you have shoes (not sandals or thongs) too much glass & rubble laying around.

Worth a visit if you're into street art
Sep 2019
We thought this abandoned animal theme park really was worth a visit. It has a very special vibe to it and had some great street art/graffiti as well. Some local guys are asking an entrance fee (25.000 IDR/pp), which is kind of illegal but we really didn't want to start arguing.

A mysterious town close to Sanur
Jul 2019 • Couples
The place is quite large and probably takes 1-2 hours to visit. Although we had to pay some hide fee to locals for the car park and entrance (overall 5$ AUD for both of us), the ghost town really deserve to be visited for the atmosphere and mysterious vibe. The place is completely abandoned, nice graffiti arts are designed on walls of buildings partly completed. The place is quite scary as is isolated, quiet, the vegetation is tall and wild in some places, some buildings are in dark and we didn't have map of the place for following indications. In addition, we went 1 hour before sunset, we decided to get out before dark. We loved the "dark" atmosphere around this place, however, we wouldn't go after sunset.

Aggressive 'security'
Jun 2019 • Couples
Walked an hour to get here, only to be met by an aggressive guy demanding money. I asked him where the sign was showing charges and would I get a ticket. He then called for another guy to come and back up his aggression. The fee was nothing buy I refused to just hand over money to scammers. Shame.

Spooky!
May 2019 • Couples
We spent 2 1/2 hours wandering around here and loved every minute. There are a lot of hidden areas so make sure you look out for them and don't miss bits. It is spooky in places with bats flying in the buildings etc. Make sure you take camera, water, good shoes and mozzi repellent! "Donation" is now 20000 each!

Spooky but vibrant
May 2019 • Couples
Early morning explore after watching sunrise on nearby beach. The artworks are vibrant and the scale of the deserted building immense. Lots of hidden alcoves with bright colorful graffiti/street art. The tropical growth of the area adds to the eeriness in the early morning. Wear sturdy footwear.
