Universal Studios Singapore is one of the best Theme Parks that our family visited. It has more than 20 rides to choose from and brings fun to the whole family since they have different rides and attractions for all ages. We went to Universal Studios from Genting Hotel using their free shuttle service.
Universal Studios is open from 10am to 7pm daily. It was a holiday on that day so we planned to be at the park before the opening time however, we missed the shuttle service and the next one is at 10:00am so we have to wait. It was about 30 minute ride from Genting Jurong Hotel to Sentosa Island where Universal Studios is located. We arrived around 10:30am there are no lines at the park entrance so we took some photos before we proceed.
Universal Studios Singapore is divided into 7 parts. Near the entrance to your right is New York, where you can see the Sesame Street Show, some restaurants, Lights Camera Action and Stage 28.
After that part you will see the change of theme since you are entering the Sci – Fi City where you can find the well known Galactica Roller Coasters and Transformers.
Next is Ancient Egypt, you can find the Revenge of the Mummy, Treasure Hunters and huge bricks and Pharaoh statues.
My son’s favorite part is the Lost World where you can find a lot of Dinosaur statues and rides such Jurassic Park Rapid’s Adventure, Canopy Flyer, Dino Sorin and Waterworld.
For the princesses they will surely love the Far Far Away part of USS since you can find a castle and the attractions are Shrek 4D adventure, Donkey Live and Puss and Boots.
The next part of USS is Madagascar, you will find a lot animals and jungle like theme. You can find the attractions such as the Crate Adventure and Party Go Round.
The last among themes in USS is the Hollywood, where you can find a Hollywood theater and a lot Restaurants, Café and merchandise store.
Since we have very limited time, and its our 2nd time here we decided to go straight to our favorite ride which is the Transformers at Sci-Fi City area. To our dismay there is already a very long line of people who wants to try the ride. We waited for our turn for about 45minutes. But it is all worth it, the ride is very thrilling as if we are part of the Transformer movie, everyone enjoyed the ride.
Then we visited the other parts of the park to see what attractions with shorter waiting time. We end up trying out the Madagascar Crate Adventure, Dino Soarin and our first time in Canopy Flyer at The Lost World. Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure is one of the best in USS as well but there are a lot of people lined up so we didn’t had a chance to try it again (we rode this during our first visit in USS park).
Although it was a very quick visit at USS Park, we really enjoyed the day and definitely loved our experience. We will surely come back.
Quick tip is to check if your visiting day is Singapore holiday or not because if it is there will be a lot of people in the park and you must buy an Express Ticket so you don’t need to wait for 30 minutes to 1 hour for your turn.
