THE TORNADO RIDE

Dufan Ancol Dreamland Part 7 of 8
Dunia Fantasi Part 4 of 5


We still went on despite the excruciatingly hot weather. Our next stop was Indonesia section in Dunia Fantasi. The Tornado ride that looks like a giant transformer figure instantly caught our attention.

Hb wanted to try but he didn't want to ride alone. And I wasn't temerarious enough to step out of my comfort zone. Yeah, I know I'm a scaredy cat. So, we just contented ourselves watching these insanely enthusiastic riders.

I looked for a comfortable place and sat underneath a tree on a cement bench while hb sat on the ground near the ride vehicle. I had a good belly laugh just watching the riders' faces changing from smiles to nervous, to laughter and screaming wildly, and to sheer terror while they were hanging upside down combined with the spinning and tilting motion. Amusing!

Here's the Tornado Ride VIDEO. Enjoy!


Here's a closer look (via ramandeybless)



In my opinion, this is the best and popular amazing nerve-wracking ride at Dunia Fantasi in Ancol Dreamland. I'm pretty sure thrill seekers will never be bored. However, expect long queues.

    2. The Tornado Ride looks interesting. Never had something like this before. Can see most of the people had their shoes and slippers off when taking the ride

    3. That looks like the Star Flyer ride in Star City. But the tornado ride I think is more exciting (more turning around).
