Jakarta, Indonesia (April 16, 2014) — The Taman Impian Jaya Ancol Resort is ready to end a heat wave as it announces a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and 3DBA to bring an all-new themed attraction, Ice Age Arctic Adventure, to the Jakarta, Indonesia Resort opening April 2014.

The new Ice Age themed attraction is part of Fox Consumer Products effort to support the continued growth of one of the world’s most popular entertainment franchises. The concept, developed by 20th Century Fox Consumer Products and 3DBA, will give Ice Age fans a special experience with the characters they know and love.


Inspired by the Ice Age films, guests will get a private arctic tour from Sid in an immersive themed flume ride from Hopkins’ Rides, and they will face Captain Gutt and his minions on the Kontiki Boat Ride from Zierer.

Ice Age is a global phenomenon and we are thrilled that it will be the first Intellectual Property Ancol has ever worked with in developing a new attraction,” said Arinta Wahyuningrum, the Project Manager/Head of design team, on the project at the Taman Impian Jaya Ancol, Jakarta Resort “As Indonesia’s number one theme park and resort destination, we are continually developing the property to ensure our guests receive world-class experiences and bringing the Ice Age Arctic Adventure to the Resort in 2014 allows us to add another first to our existing portfolio of fantastic rides and attractions.”


“The new Ice Age attraction at Ancol is a first for this region of the world and this expansion is part of our overall commitment to allow fans to experience Ice Age and its characters in new and innovative ways,” said Greg Lombardo, vice president of global location based entertainment at Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “This project is further proof of the incredible popularity that Ice Age enjoys around the globe and specifically in the very important territory of South East Asia.”
