Film buffs and thrill seekers will delight in an outing to Universal Studios Singapore, Southeast Asia's lone Universal theme park jam-packed with movie magic. If you're expecting run-of-the-mill American attractions, think again – the majority of the experiences here have been designed specifically for Singapore. Universal Studios promises a great day out for the entire family, with giddy laughter and adrenaline-fuelled shrieks ringing throughout the park on a daily basis. A one day adult pass costs around SGD$74 while a child ticket is SGD$54 – keep an eye out for seasonal deals when you book in your holiday plans!
Singapore's Universal Studios is divided into seven worlds – Hollywood, New York, Sci-fi City, Ancient Egypt, Lost World, Far Far Away and Madagascar – each bringing the silver screen to life in their own way. Soak in the glamour on the Hollywood Boulevard where a harmonizing barbershop ensemble and '50s style waitresses fill the streets with song and dance. Meet the stars on the Walk of Fame, experiment with the art of photography in the Dark Room and pick up a genuine cinematic collectible or fun souvenir.
Brace yourself on Sci-fi City's Accelerator, which will put your intergalactic stamina to the test as the world of the future whirls and twirls around you. Once you've regained your steady legs, head over to the Fairy Godmother's Juice Bar in Far Far Away for a Shrek-inspired beverage. Travel to the land of the pharaohs in Ancient Egypt and get up close and personal with an army of warrior mummies, or fly high above the canopy for a pterodactyl's-eye view of the Lost World. Take a seat in the splash zone with a Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure or leave the water sport up to the professionals and catch the live WaterWorld stunt show.
Located offshore at Resorts World Sentosa, there are plenty of opportunities for shopping, dining and entertainment in the area. There is a bus stop right outside the resort, serviced by a number of busses from central Singapore. New rides and experiences are in the works all the time at Universal Studios, based on the latest blockbuster hits as well as the classics. Whether you are ready to scream your lungs out on a stomach-dropping roller coaster or have little ones in tow who would love to see Elmo and his pals hanging out on Sesame Street, Universal Studios Singapore has something for everyone.
