Our maximum capacity is 60,000 visitors, and one-third of that would mean 15,000 to 20,000 people.
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII), a cultural-recreational park situated in East Jakarta, will limit visitors to one-third of its normal capacity when it reopens under the new normal protocols over COVID-19 outbreak concerns.

"Our maximum capacity is 60,000 visitors, and one-third of that would mean 15,000 to 20,000 people," cultural and tourism information manager, TMII, Diah Tri Irawati said in Jakarta on Wednesday, adding that the limitations will apply for all venues, "for instance, the bird park may allow 400 people per session, compared with its usual capacity of 2,000."

During the early phase of the new normal, TMII will not reopen indoor venues, such as the Keong Mas cinema and the waterpark.

Meanwhile, outdoor venues, including the aeromovel, cable car, Nusantara pavilions, and bird park, are ready to reopen.

The new normal has compelled TMII to shift the closing time for the main gate earlier to 8 p.m., and 4 p.m. for the venues. The measure is a part of health protocols to avoid COVID-19 transmission, Irawati noted.
