Ten Things about Universal Studios Singapore


Planning a trip to Universal Studios in Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore

This is truly a destination for family fun so be sure to plan your day to explore the park’s seven zones in Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Lost World, Far Far Way and Madagascar.  

Here are ten things to help you make the most of your trip.

1.  Splashing Surprise

Gear yourselves up for a day of fun-filled activities by wearing suitable footwear for lots of walking and exploring in the park.  Pack a change of clothes if you don’t want to drip-dry after some adrenaline-pumping rides that may come with a wet and wild end!

2.  Live Shows

Study the Studio Guide with map to chart your course and check show-times for shows, rides and street entertainment so that you can catch as many as possible.  Then you won’t waste time and energy walking the distance and double-backing on your route around the park and risk missing any excitement, especially if you are into rock music that’s featured in the Monster Rock show at Pantages.

3.  Ogre Outhouse

Even ogres need to use the outhouse (toilet) so let the child in you discover this ogre-size wooden structure that’s built on a little hillock.  Follow the signs to it and try tapping on its imposing door to see what happens!

4.  Action Effects

Get into this movie set inside a boathouse to have first-hand experience of a Category 5 hurricane about to hit New York City.  Brace yourselves to see how calm suddenly turns stormy and face hurricane-force wind, falling debris and shattering glass for a magical movie experience.

5.  Shrek's 4-D Show

Hang on to your seats and get ready to see, hear and feel the exciting adventure with Shrek the ogre, Princess Fiona, the talking donkey and other lovable characters in the Shrek series.  For the fourth dimension effect, just put on those ogre-vision glasses!

6.  Good Food

Check out the many dining options designed in the theme of each zone to enjoy casual or fine dining, exotic to local fare and fast foods.  The Oasis Spice Café in Ancient Egypt serves the best of Mediterranean, Indian and Malay cuisine so just look for the sign that clearly indicates that they are halal restaurants.

7.  Snack Stops

The park is dotted with interesting and irresistible snack stops so don’t worry if you have a snack attack.  In Lost World, there are Fossil Fuels, a fast-food restaurant that promises fresh and delicious meals and Popcornasaurus that sells – you guessed it – pop corn!

8.  Star Struck

Don’t be surprised if you bump into colourful characters like Herman Munster, Woody Woodpecker, Kung Fu Panda, Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe, strolling along the Walk of Fame or Hollywood Boulevard. Never mind the crowd because your patience will pay off when you finally get to meet the stars and have your photo taken with them!  Here are a few boys posing with Rick O'Connell, Brendan Fraser's character in the Mummy movie series.

9.  Souvenir Shops

Soak in the atmosphere of a bygone era to a backdrop of Hollywood fanfare music and linger on the streets lined with shops reminiscent of the 1940’s.  Snacks and souvenir stores stocked with attractive collectibles are situated at every street corner so don’t be surprised that you are sorely tempted to buy everything you see!

10.  Mummy Madness

This high-speed rollercoaster is not for the fainthearted because it is non-stop excitement as you plunge into darkness and are plagued by an army of horrible mummies, swarms of insects and huge fireballs.  But if you get a kick out of such shocks, this is a ride not to be missed!
