The whole Jaya Ancol was overwhelmed by flood waters so strong that water began to sip in through the toilets, kitchen and from the back of the center. The flow of the flood waters broke the glass in the front and that was when there was no stopping of the water flowing into the center.
Luckily through the quick thinking of the management and staffs of Ancol Bowl that prompted the mad rush to salvage important electronic machines such as the AMF back-office and front counter computers.
They were moved to the 20 lanes on the left-side of the center which is on higher grounds. The ball return electronics including the foul-line units and pins camera were destroyed when they were submerged in 4-feet of water in the entire 40 lanes on ground level.
The mains swithed off helped to save the pin setters from being destroyed and they were salvaged. They had to be, however dismantled, cleaned and re-assembled back into working order.
The 40 synthetic lanes and the foundation were completely soaked beyond salvage and had to be replaced. The ball return mechanism had to be dismantled as well and electronic parts replaced.
