Looking for an escape for the whole family for a day, an afternoon or a couple of days? Then Universal Studios Singapore in Resort World Sentosa which is in the business of providing packaged entertainment is the place to go to! Billed as one of South East Asia’s largest entertainment and all inclusive vacation destinations, the centre has a whole range of themed attractions and rides in its 20 ha complex that offer a unique combination of fantasy and entertainment.
Visitors can walk down well known streets of 1970s Hollywood and New York City complete with architectural landmarks typical of the cities. In Hollywood one may chance upon one or two famous cartoon and celluloid characters or attend a Monster Rock show with spectacular special effects in a huge theatre. In New York a category five hurricane, in all its fury delivered via amazing special effects, wipes out the city!
At the same time an intergalactic battle takes place at Sci-Fi City, designed to resemble a metropolis of the future. Some of the thrilling attractions here include the 3D Transformers ride, a duelling roller coaster ride simulating battle scenes from the TV series Battle Star Galactica and a spinning high velocity ride to cause enough dizziness. A whole range of creatures from outer space add to the atmosphere.
History buffs can visit an Egypt site complete with an archaeological dig of the 1930s, the Revenge of the Mummy ride, richly attired pharaohs, the army of Anubis, wriggling scarab beetles and even replicas of fossils and historical Egyptian artefacts.
Dinosaurs and white-water rafting combine in a rainforest scenario that takes visitors soaring above Jurassic Park. Children can participate in a treasure hunt for precious stones and fossils, ride a cute dinosaur and meet Diane, a little triceratops. A live water show based on the movie Water World provides additional excitement. The 4-D Shrek adventure, fairy tale characters from Far Far Away, a jungle boat ride accompanied by Madagascar’s hilarious characters brought to life with the latest animatronics, digital projection, evocative sound and moving show action effects make all of this a very special experience for the whole family.
This is not all. Practically all of the themed areas have their own food and beverage outlets, retail areas to suit the themes. Additionally there are several evening shows and spectacular parades as well as dining and shopping from 7 pm late into the night.
