So, you’re planning your trip to Singapore and you’ve decided to devote a full day to Universal Studios Singapore? Good choice.
We’ve gone ahead and had our share of fun at this huge theme park! Here’s what you can’t miss on your visit to the land of movies – and don’t forget to arm yourself with a handy map at the entrance.
Go for the thrill!
Thrill seekers, your quest for adrenaline isn’t done until you’ve survived these rides in USS.
1. Battlestar Galactica & Accelerator
2. TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle
The most popular roller coaster is the Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs CYLON in the Sci-Fi City. Pick a side: HUMAN for a classic roller coaster experience, and CYLON only if you dare.
If your legs still aren’t wobbly after that, drop by the Accelerator just beside Battlestar Galactica. This whirling attraction will leave you dizzy and laughing by the end of it.
This is a must-catch for fans of 3D experiences! Join Optimus Prime in the field of battle and do your part to emerge victorious! The Transformers ride is located in Sci-Fi City..
3. Revenge of the Mummy
Straight ahead, from Sci-Fi City, is Ancient Egypt. That’s where you’ll find the indoor roller coaster, Revenge of the Mummy. Plunge into complete darkness while fleeing from scarabs and feeling the heat of pyrotechnic effects!
4. Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure
Looking to get wet on a hot day? Take this water log ride over in Lost World, further down from Ancient Egypt. Ride on a raft through the heart of Jurassic World and get your towels ready – you may be soaked!
Catch a memorable show!
We list the best of the shows at USS for the faint-hearted and the ones who need a break from the adrenaline rush. There are many more shows; check your handy USS map for more information!
1. Lights, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg
The first zone in USS is, of course, New York. And that’s where you can witness an empty sound stage being transformed into the scene of a hurricane, entirely by movie effects. Get ready for a mindblowing experience!
Featuring death-defying stunts and real explosions, Water World is a sensational live action performance based on the movie of the same name. Don’t miss this death-defying stunt spectacular!
3. Shrek 4D Adventure
Sometimes, you just want a casual and fun experience. That’s where Shrek comes in: this 4D film picks up where the movie Shrek left off with an original 3D film, complete with bumps, air blasts and even a water spray. Go beyond the 3D experience and feel this film as Shrek goes on a epic journey to rescue Princess Fiona!
4. Lake Hollywood Spectacular & Hollywood Dreams Parade
Catch a wonderful fireworks show at the Lake Hollywood Spectacular or see your favourite movie characters come to life in the Hollywood Dreams Parade! Both of these shows run on selected Saturdays. If this is a must-see on your list, do check the event schedule here to find out the showtimes.
