Birthday Boy

Taman Mini 021

The great, wee fella is 10 years old today. We drove East to check out Taman Mini Indonesia Indah. There’s nothing really mini about the park – once you find the main entrance off the toll road.  A whole country in one park it recreates all the areas of Indonesia as well as accommodating several museums, a theatre, and a cinema. We headed for the Transport Museum. This doubles up as a recce for a proposed Year 2 visit. We could drive round the 150 hectare park. The transport museum was excellent. Something enjoyable about climbing over old steam engines. Then we went on the overhead mono-rail – that actually runs on two rails. The boys had great fun on the overhead rope course and flying foxes. We will be back.

  1. Great that the boys could clamber over the steam engines, not possible in the Glasgow transport museum
