You may have visited some of the go-karting spots in both Singapore and Johor Bahru (some with a Ninja Obstacle course and even F1-style race tracks) , but have you encountered one held in the middle of the jungle?
Personally for me, I never knew I wanted that experience until my editor told me about this with the insinuation of “That’s your travel content, June”.
After their soft launch in early August this year, Jungle Cart in Bali rose in popularity because apparently people just love living their Super Mario Kart fantasies.
And it truly is something very similar to that!
As Indonesia’s first jungle cart experience, Jungle Cart has a downhill track that stretches 4.5km. For 4.5km, you get to experience the ride and enjoy the sights through a sacred Balinese jungle, rice fields, temples, and traditional Balinese villages.
How exciting is that? I’m seriously ready to pack my bags because I just love forests. But wait, there’s more!
Their eco-friendly jungle carts have no engine, so it is safe for all ages to ride and you don’t need a driver’s license for it. Thank you, gravity.
The carts also feature high-quality hydraulic brakes and steering so that you’re able to manoeuvre across the course of the “track”.
If you’re feeling a little thirsty halfway through the ride, there are pit stops for refreshments kombucha, jamu, and even pisang goreng so keep a lookout for that!
A fun and cheeky activity that you can do while jungle carting — and yes, I’m indeed going back to the Mario kart thing — is that bananas are given to each person and you’re able to throw peels as “obstacles”, exactly like in a Super Mario Kart game.
Of course, safety is always first.
On top of the mandatory helmet that they strap you with, Jungle Cart does provide rain gear such as waterproof jackets, pants, as well as safety glasses, for those rainy days.
And honestly? The price isn’t too bad either.
At S$32.68 (380K IDR), this two and a half hour jungle carting experience is definitely one to not miss if you enjoy an adrenaline pumping session coupled with gorgeous sights. Children under 14 years old even get to go free of charge!
I don’t know about you but I like to prepare a little beforehand, so it’s reassuring to know that I’m able to book slots at their official website choosing between 9am, 12pm, or 3pm. You may also contact them via WhatsApp if you require more information.
The next time you’re planning a trip to Bali, why not put Jungle Cart on your to-visit list?
