Jerudong Park is an amusement park located in Jerudong, Brunei-Muara District, Brunei. It was built and funded by the Bruneian government for $1 billion. Jerudong Park initiated its operation in 1994. The park used to be completely free; there was no admission fees. All rides were free of charge. However, in 2009, the numbers of visitors and tourists had declined significantly. Therefore, the owners took an initiative of charging a one-time B$15 admission fee and a ride ticketing system.

1. Take the Jerudong Park Tour For Your Best Experience
Two years after its opening in 1994, Michael Jackson performed a concert on 16 July 1996. Visitors were up to 60,000 people. The free concert was held to celebrate the 50th birthday of Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei. Although the Sultan himself did not attend the concert, it was attended by the Brunei royal family. On New Year's Eve 1996, Jackson performed another show.
2. The Bumper Cars
Bumper cars are located near the waterpark. The game is quite simple. You try to “bump” into as many people as possible while trying not to get hit. It is a fun activity for a large group of families. Be prepared to get bumped in all directions.
3. Ice World Arctic Rapid
Ice World Arctic Rapid can be found at Phase 2 of the playground, covering an area of 52,695 square metres. You can experience a wild descent through a 'canyon' river. The boat accommodating four persons is pulled up a steep incline. Through a special fiberglass channel, the boat navigates the curve. You will be thrilled when the boat reaches the peak of the canyon then rushes down the channel the bottom of the river. It's quite similar to a rafting experience.
4. Flying fox
It is certainly not for someone afraid of heights. You can experience “flying” over 14 meters in the air before being dropped down in a swing-like motion. You may feel scary at first, but after the first try, you'll want the second time.
