One of the most popular tourist destination when visiting Singapore is the Universal Studios Singapore. It is the second Universal Studios theme park open in Asia and the first in Southeast Asia.
I can say that Universal Studios is all about fun. Just need the patience with the long lines and you’ll definitely enjoy every ride. If you want to get away with long lines and large crowd, I suggest that you visit the USS on a weekday.
Since we went there on a non-peak season our ticket cost 68sgd and it comes with a 10sgd voucher.
Universal Studios Singapore offers seven themed attractions – Madagscar, Far Far Away, the Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City, Lost World, Hollywood, and New York.
It is the main entrance area of the park. Its only attraction, a broadway-style theatre, is accompanied by several restaurants and a variety of flagship shops. Being a replica of the famous Hollywood Boulevard, this area is filled with great architecture. It also features a replica of the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. Character appearances like Po Panda,Frankenstein, Woody Woodpecker, Winnie Woodpecker, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Beetle juice and Betty Boop will be seen in the streets once in while.
Hollywood – You will meet Frankie and Po Panda

This isn’t actually a ride, it’s more of an experience. In here you will experience the incredible special effects done on a movie. There are two rooms that we passed through here. The first room is a briefing about Lights! Camera! explained by Mr. Spielberg’s video and the 2nd room is where you will see the entire special effect attractions.
Steven Spielberg’s Lights! Camera! Action! – See how the windows are smashed on the 2nd photo. That is because of the hurricane special effects. Ang galing!
As the name suggests, the Ancient Egypt zone is themed after the rich Egyptian architecture and artifacts found during the Golden Age of Egyptian Exploration in the 1930s – via
Sci-Fi City (Battle Galactica, Accelerator, Transformer the ride)
Battlestar Galactica has two different tracks, The red called Human and the blue is called Cylon. The Human loop is a closed car like a regular roller-coaster. The Cylon loop is where you ride with your feet hanging in mid-air. (spell scaryyyy!!!)
This ride looks scary hahaha. Would you dare try this?
Accelerator - If roller coasters aren’t your thing, then a spin on the Accelerator could be just the ticket. A wild spinning ride, the Accelerator is based upon the ideas of electricity and power, including solar and wind power. Whirling guests around like electrons around a nucleus, the Accelerator provides thrills and chills.
My sister excited to start the spinning.
The crowd was of course gathered at the park’s newest attraction – TRANSFORMERS The Ride!
We weren’t able to get inside because there were long queues. So did some photo opps na lang.
By the way, the estimated waiting time was 120 minutes. Two whole hours. Grabe di ba? Too bad…but who knows, we might comeback
So, It’s almost midnight and I am so sleepy. Will continue my Universal Studio Singapore chronicles. Ta-dah!!!
