Universal Studios Singapore | We LAH(VE) it!

Universal Studios Singapore is a dream come true for those who would want to enjoy the theme park franchise here in South East Asia. It opened last March 2011 in Resorts World Sentosa. This 20-hectare theme park consists of more than 24 attractions.
Since we went here on a Saturday, there were many people and the queue in the ticket booth was long. Luckily, we already purchased our tickets online. The one day adult pass costs 74SGD– yes, it is possible to enjoy the theme park in one day. Just make sure that you already decided beforehand what attractions you would like to see in order to save time and energy-don’t worry because you will be given maps with details and ride schedules. Also, take note that it opens at 10am and closes at 7pm.

Hollywood

Hollywood boulevard is the main entrance of the park.  Its only attraction, a broadway-style theatre, is accompanied by several restaurants and a variety of flagship shops.
And the photo is not under exposed. Even though it’s summer, the weather in Singapore is unpredictable. It rains every hour but you could still feel the heat. Make sure that you bring a small umbrella (or raincoat) and ziplock bags for your valuables.

Lights, camera, action! by Stephen Spielberg
As you stand in a boathouse by the harbor, watch how a calm day suddenly turns stormy.
Brace yourself as hurricane-force winds sweep in from the sea and drive a cargo ship and debris towards the boathouse you’re in. Calm soon returns and the damaged boathouse restores itself, all thanks to movie magic.
Tip: You’ll have a better view at the second level of the boathouse.

Ancient Egypt

Ancient pyramids and obelisks stand fast against the sands of time as you are transported to 1930’s Egypt, the Golden Age of Egyptian Exploration. Travel to an era when entire Pharaohs tombs were discovered- and their terrible curses unleashed. IMG_3270

Lost World

Yes, lost… we lost our chance to experience the Jurrasic Park ride. The outdoor ride operations were suspended due to the strong rain.

…there is a 4-D ride adventure that picks up where the Oscar-winning movie “Shrek” left off, through an original 3-D film, complete with jumps, bumps, bounces, air blasts and water spray that bring the action to life for each guest- with an extra dimension of special effects through the miracle of OgreVision glasses…

  1. We were lucky enough to visit just before the official opening in late 2010 – really great addition to South East Asia and great day out! We still love the Singapore Zoo, has to rate as one of the premier zoos in the world!
