During this school holiday, we’ve bought our daughter to newly-opened Universal Studio Singapore. If the tourists want to go into the Universal Studio on the day itself, they will be disappointed as it is always FULL house.We booked our ticket one week in advance. Adult ticket is $66. Child above 3 years old is about $46. My hubby bought the express ticket, added in additional $20 per person. i.e. you could jump queue, people who brought express ticket would have privilege to go to express lane of each ride/activity.
As some of the activities was not fully operated, so the park compensated us with $10 shopping + $10 dinning vouchers for each person. so don’t forget to pickup the voucher at the entrance.
The theme park is pretty easy to navigate in a big circle. It is divided into several themes, Hollywood, Madagascar, Far far Away, Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City, New York. At Hollywood, mostly shops & restarant. At Madagascar, river boat ride was not open yet, coming soon. We did the merry-go-round. At Far far Away, There was a huge castle, we did shrek 4D show, donkey live , ferris wheel there. My daughter loved the 4D show the best. when donkey sneezed in the movie, you could actually feel the water splashed all over you. you could also feel the wind was blowing from back of your seat, chair was moving up and down. It was such a interesting show. At donkey live show, you would have chance to communicate with cartoon donkey face to face. you could ask donkey questions and donkey would answer you.
At The lost world, there was bunch of theme park activities, such as outdoor roller coaster, waterworld, canopy flyer, Juassic park train ride, Amber rock climb. At Ancient Egypt, there was a amazing indoor roller coaster where you could experience a thrill ride in total darkness. Well, it might be too scary for young children. My daughter wouldn’t dare to do it as she still kept the bad memory of roller coaster ride from our last disneyland HK trip. But I loved it the most, as it is different than other roller coaster that I have tried all over the world. It would have a sudden stop when the roller coaster was about to hit the wall, then the wall cracked with all the scary black insect that you can see in Mummy Return movie. Roller coast reversed and turn direction in the fast speed ride in the darkness. I felt a strong wind passing through my cheek, my hair was almost standing up. Occasionally, I saw flashing light, spider web, smoke and felt the mist in the air. Wow, that was really a interesting thrill experience!
At Sci-Fi City, the bigger outdoor roller coaster was not open for the day. We did the Accelerator, where you could sit in the cup design machine to swirling and twirling. At New York, we saw special effect studio called "Ligts, camera, Action". This is what Univeral Stuido is all about. You will be blown away by the filmmakers incredible special effect, setting for a major hurricane about to hit new york city. There was fire all over the place, can you believe it? Well, time flies. We’ve spent the whole day there, from 10am until 7pm. There are still some show that we didn’t have time to watch, as some of the show was ended as early as 4:30pm. We had dinner at the shopping mall outside the Universal Studio. It was such a wonderful outing for our family. We come out from from the car park, the hefty parking fee is also ‘wonderful’- $20! Might think of take public transport next time, haha
