Universal Studios Singapore Opens For Business

Visitors to Singapore now have a new attraction when at Sentosa, a island resort at the southern tip of the Southeast Asian city state. Universal Studios Singapore, the fourth in the world and part of the Resorts World Sentosa complex, has opened to the public with a lavish ceremony at 0828 hrs. To usher in good luck, 18 Chinese lions kickstarted the celebrations at 0808 hrs, blazing through the entrance and parading with actresses dressed up as Marilyn Monroe and Betty Boop down the park’s Hollywood Boulevard.

 

Universal Studios Singapore has 7 themed zones for guests to experience, including the glamour of Hollywood with its version of the famous Walk of Fame, or allow them to unravel the secrets of film production and special effects at the New York zone. The Ancient Egypt zone takes visitors back to the 1930s, the golden age of Egyptian exploration, while Sci-Fi City transports them into the future. Finally, guests can explore the world of “Shrek” at the Far Far Away zone, survive the dangers of The Lost World or visit the dense tropical jungle of Madagascar, based on the hit animation film of the same title.

 

A total of 24 rides and attractions from Hollywood blockbusters such as “Jurassic Park” and “The Mummy Returns”. 18 of the rides have been originally designed or adapted for the Singapore park, including the world’s tallest duelling roller coasters from the “Battlestar Galactica” franchise. An array of dining and retail outlets cater to guests between attractions, where they can purchase souvenirs and movie memorabilia.

 

Universal Studios Singapore joins 3 other sister parks in Florida, Hollywood and Osaka. The park is open from 0900 hrs to 1800 hrs daily. A 1-day Weekday Pass costs SGD 66 for adults, SGD 48 for children and SGD 32 for seniors, while a 1-day Weekend Pass costs SGD 72 for adults, SGD 52 for children and SGD 36 for seniors. The park also offers additional ticket types including seasonal passes.
