So, so, so… My sis sponsored me to Universal Studio Singapore (USS)!!!
And guess what?! It’s also The Universal Express pass! That means we dun need to queue and wait long long like the rest! =D
woohoo~~~ super excited!
Though we’ve bought our ticket online, we still need to queue to get our tickets, but no worries it’s pretty fast.
The One Day Non Peak pass is priced at SGD$68/person and the express pass is priced at SGD$30/person for off peak. Checkout the rest of the ticket price here.
The three of us, sis, me and Suzie! Sis even took leave to accompany me there!
Since it’ll be a long day out under the sun, I wore something comfortable, airy and cooling.
So, in USS, the whole theme park is separated to a few small parks which is The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar, New York, Ancient Egypt, Hollywood, and Sci-Fi City.
Welcome to Hollywood!
They really designed the park like in Hollywood!
We spotted a few famous cartoon characters.
Woody Woodpecker and the fatty Kung-fu Panda! The Kung-fu Panda darn cute right? So hug-able!
Woody Woodpecker proposed to my sister! Then my sister act paiseh. LOL
Ohhh… there’s also the scary Frankenstein!
We went to The Lost World first. I think by just the name, you should be able to guess what this place is.
It’s the land of dinosaurs!
In this park, I believe the best ride would be The Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, Enjoy a thrilling river raft ride through primeval dinosaur habitats where you will get wet and possibly soaked. That kinda depends on your luck!
So, be prepared with ur use-and-throw poncho/raincoat. Otherwise, there is a vending machine which you could purchase it there too.
Even if you’re soaked wet, fret not, there’s a dry pod there. Just put the coins in to operate. It’s like a might hair dryer.
After that, we head over to Canopy Flyer at The Lost World. I get to enjoy a prehistoric bird’s eye view as I soar over Jurassic Park.
I also get to see the Far Far Away castle from here.
We skipped the rest of the attractions at The Lost World coz we were afraid that we didn’t have enough time for all of it.
We then head over to Madagascar for the Madagascar: A Care Adventure one of my favourite cartoon!
In the crate ready to enjoy the ride!
All the cute characters from the cartoon is in there.
There’s only 2 attractions here but a lot of cartoon characters to take photo with.
Looks as though Alex says no photo please!
Managed to take photo with Alex and Gloria.
Suzie took a photo with King Julien, the king of “toh toh yeh”. That name I give one.
Ohhh la la~~~ sexy asses!
On the way to another attraction, I saw Puss in the Boots. He must be telling me “Call me, maybe?” LOL
Then, we’re at “Far Far Away“. Not that far though, just between Madagascar and The Lost World.
The best attraction for this would be the Shrek 4-D Adventure. I’m always curious what exactly is 4D. After this adventure, now I know. 4D means you get to see, hear and FEEL the action right from my seat! So, I joined Princess Fiona & Shrek in this fairytale adventure.
If you’re weak-hearted person and just can’t take a ride on a normal roller coaster, perhaps you could try out Enchanted Airways. Hear the name Enchanted Airways also you know it’s not scary. It’s a junior roller coaster, so, it’s not as scary as the others.
We managed to persuade and convince my sis to take this ride. See… it’s not that steep only! Mild roller coaster. =D But sis say it’s scary. =,=”"”
Next stop is the Ancient Egypt.
Fuiyoh… Check out this “Egyptian”! His muscle is so darn firm.
Suzie and I went for Revenge of the Mummy, it’s also a roller coaster ride but this is an indoor ride and it’s pretty dark inside. So, if there’s nothing to see, it’s not that scary afterall! That’s my logic. But sis is too scary cat so she waited for us at the side.
After the roller coaster ride, we head over for a joy ride at Treasure Hunters.
You can drive the desert jeep through an abandoned Egyptian excavation site. Not exactly drive la, this ride even children also can drive.
The queue here is really, really long! Maybe coz this is one of those family rides where everyone could enjoy the ride together regardless of age. But I realize there’s a lot of people at USS on that day although it’s Friday… those people dun need to work one izzit?! But I guess most of the people are like me, a tourist. But anyway, thank god we had express pass and skipped the queue!
Next up, Sci-Fi City!
One of the most exciting ride of the day would be the roller coaster ride at Sci-Fi City.
There are 2 roller coaster rides there, one is blue which is Battlestar Galactica: CYCLON and the other is Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN.
So, I asked the staff what’s the difference between this 2 rides and I was told that the Cyclon leaves u suspended in the air while the Human one is not. With this, I assumed the Cyclon ride is scarier so I took the Human ride first.
Damn! The Human track is pretty scary! It’s zooming at the speed of 82.8km/h and it narrowly avoids the collisions with the Cyclon as it twists, turns, and propels over 14 storeys into the air. I screamed my lungs out during this ride.
Geez… once you’re on the hot seat there’s no turning back! Once you’ve taken the ride at Human, Cyclon is nothing. The Cyclon ride wasn’t as scary as the Human ride. I screamed so much at the Cyclon ride till I got not much energy left to scream here. If you love exciting rides, these 2 rides is definitely for you!
The highlight of all park and rides would be TRANSFORMERS The Ride : The Ultimate 3D Battle.
Here, I joined Optimus Prime and the Autobots as I become a freedom fighter in the ultimate 3D battle against the forces of evil.
This is really good! The ride is totally exciting!!! I really felt like I’m in the battlefield with the evil robots. Good experience I would say. I wouldn’t mind to take this ride again and again.
Photo with… I dunno this robot’s name. Anyone?
Photo of Sci-Fi City and Bumble Bee.
The last park is New York.
Here, there is a New York Public Library, subway, taxi, and the buildings are designed like New York. I thought I’m in New York already. Okay… I’ve never been to New York, I dunno how it feel like yet.
But yeah… u got the idea. The place is nice, it makes you feel as though u’re at another country already.
I did a plank infront of the New York Public Library! Teehee~
I can’t remember who this is.
You have to go to the Lights, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg. Be blown away as an empty sound stage becomes the setting for a major hurricane about to hit New York City – right before your eyes!
I’m totally amazed by this on how they create this settings which eventually we watched it in the movie. But of coz, most of the scene we watched on movies nowadays is graphics.
Here, you’ll also find a lot of souvenir shops. Actually, at every end of each park they’ll have a souvenir shop. But if you’ve missed out those souvenirs shop earlier, you could probably find some of those souvenirs here.
“I wanna thank my father, my mother, my sisters, my teachers, my relatives, my cousins, my friends…”
Wait a sec… wrong speech. That’s not for my Best Girlfriend Award speech!
At the exit of USS you’ll see Candylicous.
It’s designed like a candyland!
We spent about more than half a day at USS. We were totally KO by the end of the day so we didn’t go back and take those rides that we’ve skipped earlier.
USS usual operating hours is from 10am-7pm daily but there are certain days which they open till 12 midnight. Checkout their operating hours here. So, plan your time well and I do suggest to get the Express pass if you’re going on a weekend or if you just hate to waste time by queuing on each and every ride. Hope you enjoy your trip there as much as I do!
