What if there was a way to experience being in your favourite movie? Think about it. As a child, going to the movies for the first time is always a magical experience. The larger-than-life screen, the blacked out cinema, and the sound system combined made you feel as if you were in the movie.
You’d take that experience back home and relive the entire film in your room as if you were the hero. Now, you have the chance to experience that magical feeling all over again, in a theme park made by the studio that gave your childhood (and adulthood) colour and adventure — Universal Studios Singapore.
What’s There to See
When planning a trip to a theme park, it’s always good to be prepared, especially in a park as big as Sentosa’s Universal Studios. With a park as big as 25 football fields, you’ll need to know ahead of time which rides you’d like to go on in order to avoid the queue. For your benefit, here are some of the park’s rides, based on some of your favourite movies:
- Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN VS CYCLON – Choose a side as you become part of the intergalactic battle between good and evil on the world’s tallest intertwined roller coasters.
- Transformers the Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle – A hyper-realistic 3D ride, you are immersed in the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons as a freedom fighter in the ultimate battle.
- Revenge of the Mummy – An indoor roller coaster that will test your mettle as you come across warrior mummies, scarabs, and fireballs.
- Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure – A river raft adventure that puts you in the heart of the Jurassic Park, complete with dinosaurs. Warning: Will get wet.
Enjoying the Experience
To fully appreciate your adventure around Universal Studios, make sure you’ve planned ahead. Spending a day at a theme park fun but tiring as well, this is why you’ll have to make the necessary preparations.
Choose a non-holiday weekday
Go to the park on a day when the majority of the locals have work and school. Go early in the morning as well to avoid the massive crowds.
Get Express Passes to the more popular rides
Those are the crowd magnets, so getting a ticket that gets you on a shorter and faster line can elevate your experience even more.
Going around Universal Studios Singapore is like a dream come true, especially when you are well-equipped to enjoy your adventure.
