Travel: Singapore - Universal Studio

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Travel: Singapore - Universal Studio

another just for fun poll.

Resorts World Sentosa is targeting to start operating its Universal Studio this week in time for CNY.

When will you be bringing your kid(s) there?

:D

Intend to book a hotel (one night) after my DD PSLE this year - marking week. Hope it will be good. It is cheaper than going to Osaka.

I do not know for sure

What I heard is that all rides are ready and had been undergoing testing & verification by Universal Studio. I guess it is possible that certain ride may not meet Universal Studio's standard and thus not available at opening.

I would only go when these conditions are met :
1) when my children are tall enough for all those rides. (if not they would be disappointed when they get there and realised that they are either too young or too short for those rides.)
2) only after their final examination.
3) only when the period have lesser crowd.

Only when adults and kids are able to play those rides I would consider the ticket worth it. If not, to me it just another man-made theme park, nothing much to look forward to. 8)

We have been the Universal Studio in US.. pretty old as we did not visit the other park with the thrill rides (like Spiderman). I can imagine the one in Singapore is pretty similar to Osaka. Rides like Mummy and Simpson are good and 4D shows like Shrek is very good.

Thanks. I have been to other Universal Studios, just not the one in Osaka. Just asking to see whether to include it in the itenery when we next visit Osaka. :D

Wonder how much would be the annual pass? Preferably most of the rides can suit the young children.
