The Wonderia Semarang tourist park was closed in November 2007 due to an accident which caused one of the game rides to take a toll.
However, on April 17, 2008, Wonderia Tourism Park was officially reopened to the public after receiving a certificate of passing the feasibility test from the FT Undip (Faculty of Technology).
This certificate indicates that the rides available are very safe so that no errors occur as happened before.
This tourist park is located on Jl. Sriwijaya no.29 is precisely located in the downtown area of Semarang. This place was inaugurated by the President at that time, namely Bp. Suliso Bambang Yudhoyono in 2007.
When entering the park, you will pass through a portal and then there are various rides. Counters are deliberately spread out in various corners of the park so that it makes it easy for visitors when they want to ride a vehicle.
There are lots of chairs made of cement under shady trees so when you are tired walking around you can rest while eating lunch here. The breeze blows with the leaves that fall from the top of the tree, adding to the comfort when sitting and relaxing.
There are various types of toys that are of interest to children, such as Boom Boom Car, Space Gyro, Typhoon Coaster, Super Rally, Merry Go Round, and Kiddy Boat available here.

Not only rides for children, but there are also rides that test courage like the Ghost House.
Besides that, the management of Wonderia Tourism Park often presents an entertainment stage with the capital’s artists and local singers as performers.
Not only music stages, this park is often used as a place for major events in Semarang such as healthy walks, festivals, competitions and many others.
With all the facilities offered, both fun games rides to music stages, make Taman Wisata Wonderia as one of the favorite destinations for residents of Semarang and its surroundings for a weekend or spending holidays with family or close friends.
This place will be crowded with visitors, especially during school holidays because this place is indeed a strong magnet for children.
Wonderia Semarang Amusement Park is the largest tourist park in Central Java. Its strategic location and close to several buildings such as the Raden Saleh Cultural Park and the PusDa (regional library) make it easily accessible from various directions.
So when students are tired after studying at Pusda, they can immediately refresh their minds by playing various games here. There is a large enough parking area so that visitors who come feel comfortable not jostling.
The Wonderia amusement park is also very shady because of the many shady trees. Not only that, the roads used by visitors to move from one vehicle to another are quite recreational and of course comfortable.

The Wonderia Semarang 2020 situation is now unkempt even though the price of admission to the tourist park offered is quite affordable. Now the amusement park has an address map at Jalan Sriwijaya No. 29 have been given a yellow police stripe ribbon.
Previously, Wonderia Park or Woderia Park often held clothing distribution events, but because it had been deactivated for a long time, the atmosphere in the place became haunted because it was closed.
Are there frequent accidents or news regarding the reasons for the closure of the entertainment venue will be explained below.
From used clothingan, recreation, entertainment venues, floor plans, events, photos, facilities, pictures, htm, the biggest amusement park in Central Java, Indonesia to schedule info, roads, cases, locations, field area, mystery, myth, map, game, routes, loneliness, history, reasons for closure, tragedies, fares about current rides have all been summarized.
The Reasons Behind The Closure
The Semarang City Government was forced to deactivate the Wonderia Tourism Park. This park has been under the management of PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta (SMART) but due to unpaid tax payments and property rights royalty fees totaling up to Rp. 3.1 Billion.
The head of the Semarang City Police Unit said that this tourist park was closed and sealed so that it was not used in and out of people.
After the sealing incident by the municipal police officer of Semarang, the status of Taman Wisata Wonderia Semarang is still unclear. Automatically, the amusement park is now stalled, there is no activity there at all.
It’s so lonely that you don’t see people doing activities in Wonderia. On last Sunday there was a gymnastic activity in the front yard of the park, but after the activity was finished, there was no longer any activity in the family tourism area.
The fence in front is locked and locked tight. Only a few small children were seen playing kites. At the entrance counter there is a yellow seal or police line.
Residents around Wonderia are of the opinion that the land of the former Wonderia Semarang Amusement Park should be used as best as possible by the Semarang City Government because according to information the land is an asset of the Semarang City Government.
If you just leave it alone, it’s a shame. Especially at night, the area seems so dark there is no single activity so rumors spread that this place is haunted.
Before sealing, it was known that here was a favorite venue for musical performances, both dandung and other music shows and distribution shows.
According to information obtained, the Semarang City Government is planning to make Wonderia Tourism Park the center of tourism activities in this Atlas city.
However, it is still uncertain when the plan will be realized because the Bappeda Team is still studying the location.
The statement was immediately conveyed by Bp. Hendrar Prihadi, the Mayor of Semarang City.
However, Mr. Hendi is not yet willing to provide information regarding the Wonderia Recreation Park management plan with a new system and management because it is still in the evaluation and review stages.
Pak Hendi also added that he would use the polling system to get input in managing the former amusement park land.
In fact, the collaboration between the City Government and PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta ended until 2020, but because PT Smart was unable to pay all administrative responsibilities, the collaboration was forced to end since the beginning of this year.
The Mayor said he really respects the agreement between PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta and the previous government.
However, when the agreement was violated by the investor, in this case it was PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta or SMART, it was his responsibility to remind the investor.
Before it was sealed, efforts had been made to warn to pay the arrears up to three times, but because they were not immediately paid, they had to immediately terminate the contract.
After terminating the contract since early 2020, the Semarang City Government gave a deadline of up to 6 months to PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta to immediately remove all of their assets from the Wonderia Recreation Park.
According to the Head of the Semarang City One Stop Investment and Integrated Management Service, the actual management of the Wonderia Recreation Park has been less than optimal. PT Semarang Arsana Rekreasi Trusta has agreed on the termination of the contract.
Currently, the Semarang City Government is waiting for PT Smart to recover all the remaining assets so that the next management can continue.
Meanwhile, Mr. M. Farhan as the Head of Semarang Bappeda (Planning Division, Regional Planning and Development Agency) said he was unable to do much after the Wonderia Park sealing.
Regarding the work plan, Bappeda cannot provide any information. It is possible that if the status report has been resolved and Bappeda is asked to provide an opinion and move immediately.
For now, we cannot provide much explanation because it is still being processed by law, it has not yet become the domain of the Planning, Planning and Regional Development Agency.
Alternative Tourism in Semarang
Besides Wonderia, there are other recreational parks that are suitable for families to spend their weekend vacations, one of which is Taman Wisata Puri Maerokoco Semarang.
Unlike Wonderia, which offers a variety of games and music stages, Taman Wisata Puri Mareokoco also has several rides, but not as many as in Wonderia.
The rides for games at Puri Mareokoco include Water Rickshaws, Bomcar, Ferris Wheel, Marry Go Around or carousels, Kid’s Park such as slides, swings etc., the Indonesian Children’s Palace, Cable Car, Tourism Village, Swimming Pool and Water Boom, Floating Market, Science and Technology Museum, Outbound (Flying Fox, Paintball War, etc.), and the Opera House.
The choice of rides is quite diverse and interesting, especially the rides by boat around the swamp in Mareokoco castle. While sitting on the boat and enjoying the view of the ponds here, if lucky, visitors will be greeted by flying milkfish.
Milkfish that land on the boat can be brought home and free, it’s not really interesting.
The location of Puri Mareokoco Tourism Park is also close to the city center of Semarang. Access roads here are very easy to reach from any direction. The location is very strategic, close to the best terminal, tugumuda and also Ahmad Yani Airport.
Not only a vehicle for games, but visitors can enjoy miniature traditional houses or pavilions from a total of up to 35 districts and municipalities in Central Java. There are also handicrafts and industrial products in the traditional house.
