Day 2: Universal Studios
Okay folks, here’s a quick review on some of the thrills and spills that await you at Universal Studios Singapore. The Universal Studio is the only Hollywood movie theme park in Singapore and I should say the place is simply INCREDIBLE! The place features several Dream Works Animation-themed attractions, including the characters from the Shrek and Madagascar films, as well as a Battlestar Galactica-themed twin roller coaster i think? which was a good choice. I must say the owners have done a good job! The place has lots of great rides that it ended us all confused where to ride first. Hahaha! Dinosaurs, lemurs, ogres and Egyptian mummies add to the thrills and adventures. I tell you this will be an experience that you will not forget in Singapore. Lasting memories are made.
Let’s dive in on the photos!
Far Far Away
Step into the twisted fairytale world of Shrek. The ride to watch here is Shrek 4D Adventure. With the help of 3D glasses, the characters were pretty much popping outta the screen toward you all the time, and when the donkey sneezes, you will feel it, literally.
PRE SHOW. We are led into a dungeon-like room with two giant television screens on either side. On the screen, the ghost of Lord Farquaad, who escaped the mouth of the dragon, announces that he has kidnapped the 3 little pigs, Gingerbread man and Pinocchio and is holding them hostage.
I have no pictures inside the theater since it’s prohibited.
This zone is created based on Stephen Spielberg phenomenal movie, Jurassic Park. The Lost World divided into two smaller regions : Jurassic Park and Waterworld.
1. Water World
2. Canopy Flyer
This is a photo that I do not own. My canopy flyer pictures were all deleted.
I recommend that you go sit in the rear. Going through the motions backwards is much more thrilling. As you cannot see where you are going, every bank and turn is a treat. Hahaha!
3. Jurassic Park Adventures
Decided to eat Lunch at the Jurrassic Cafe.
I got the roasted chicken meal, with red mashed potatoes/gravy. The mash potatoes were really good but the dessert was gross! Sorry but I didn’t like it. Overall, their food was good. You can get a plate that’ll usually run you about $8 per plate.
Thrill-seekers can choose between a coaster where they are seated or the other where riders are suspended. Exciting loops, sudden turns, breathtaking drops and thrilling near-collisions will make you scream your heart out! 🙂
After having fun in USS Singapore, we went back to the hotel and had a good night sleep. for our next trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
