This man made theme park consists of different themes on each different corner. You’ll find numerous kinds of rollercoaster rides, games, attractions, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and others. Oh, you will also find various of your favourite childhood cartoon characters strolling around the park,waiting for you to greet them. And yes, you can pose around and take pictures with them to create your own memories, too.
What Are The Attractions In Universal Studio Singapore?
Currently, there are seven different zones to explore at Universal Studio Singapore. And best believe there’s more to be built in the future! The zones or themes are Hollywood, Madagascar, Far Far Away (Shrek), The Lost World (Jurassic Park), Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City, and of course, New York. And as mentioned before, each of these zones have their own little attractions, rides, shows and street entertainment.
As its name suggests, of course, Hollywood zones will be filled with iconic Hollywood characters around the streets. Marilyn Moonroe, Dracula, Frankenstein and others. This zone is all about the glam and glitz of life. So make sure to take as many pictures as you can at every corner. You can act like you’re taking a stroll in the good Los Angeles street.
This Pixar movie really got a whole theme dedicated to itself. As you guys know, Madagascar’s movies were filled with cute and lively animals, jungle, funky drums and music and a whole lot of fun. So, you can experience the feeling of the movie itself the moment you step into this epic zone. As for the attractions, you need to try these two rides—The Raft Ride and The Big Carousell. Oh, don’t forget to pose around with your favorite Madagascar character, too.
3. Far Far Away (Shrek)
Calling all Shrek fans. You wouldn’t want to miss this one. This zone literally filled with the iconic green character along with his best friend and wife, Donkey and Fiona. We suggest you take a pit stop to watch the Donkey and Shrek private show where you’ll find yourself covered in water at the end of the show. It’s super cute.
4. The Lost World (Jurassic Park)
For this wil zne, they probably won an award for containing the craziest ride, and the highest intensity level thus far. They have five total attractions including suspended roller coasters, river raft and others. One you enter these dangerous jungle zones, be prepared to be greeted with amazing wil creatures that were extinct million years ago. Each ride could give you a little bit of a heart attack, but it’s all worth it at the end.
5. Ancient Egypt
I could have sounded like a biased person but, out of all this, my favourite zone ever. Not because I personally adore Cleopatra and the history of ancient Egypt, but because of all the cat statues and drawings that were all over the place! Though I suggest if you have a history of high-blood pressure, stay away from the Revenge of the Mummy Ride. But most of all the altercations are totally so my vibes – including the jeep driving!
6. Sci-Fi City
If you’re a big fan of Back to The Future or any other sci-fi movie, then you’ll enjoy this zone. The Transformer attraction which is called the ‘’Ultimate 3D Battle’’ is a must try for everyone. It makes you feel like you’re a part of the movie itself! Though the zone is pretty small compared to others, it’s totally worth every queue.
7. New York
Last but not least, the good ole New York City (but really, you’re still in Singapore). You can expect this zone to be as lively and entertaining as the original New York city. Be prepared to be wooed with an amazing street performance like dancing and singing. You can find almost everything from the old New York days like retro restaurants, popcorn stalls and others. Also, if you’re a fan of Sesame Street, make sure to catch their live performance!
Where To Purchase Universal Studio Tickets?
Of course you can gamble around and purchase the ticket at the ticket counter located at the entrance park. However, we would suggest you buy the ticket online because there are actually few coupons and discount codes available. Especially now that they’re limiting numbers of people per entry. Check the ticket availability here.
How To Get To Universal Studio Singapore?
We suggest you take a personal taxi or Grab to drop you off at the front gate to Universal Studio Singapore. The journey from the central city of Singapore will take you about 15 minutes to arrive. However, if you insist on taking public transport, take the MRT ride and stop at the Harbourfront Station, and change to the Sentosa Express monorail all the way to Waterfront Station on Sentosa. Other than that, if you want to take a cable car, there is a one way journey straight to Sentosa Island itself.
What To Wear For Universal Studio Singapore?
Of course, make sure to wear the most comfortable clothing and shoes because there will be a lot of walking, movement, and riding experience. Our takes would be the cotton shirt, denim pants and sneakers. Oh, don’t forget to bring your sunglasses too, because the heat might kill you.
