Planning Your Visit
This popular theme park can be found on Sentosa Island, within a 15-minute taxi ride from the SG Clean certified PARKROYAL Serviced Suites Singapore. You can also get to Sentosa via the Sentosa Express monorail from the VivoCity mall or cable car for a more scenic ride. Tickets are available at the official website (https://www.rwsentosa.com/en/attractions/universal-studios-singapore) and keep in mind that prior reservation may be needed for season or annual pass holders or those with tickets with no fixed dates.
When visiting Universal Studios from the best serviced apartments Singapore has to offer, remember to set aside time to enjoy the site’s top rides; these can include the exhilarating experiences of TRANSFORMERS The Ride (a 3D ride), Revenge of the Mummy, Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure and Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON, the tallest dueling rollercoasters in the world! Of course, if you’re looking for more laidback fun, rides like the Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase, Puss in Boots Giant Journey, Treasure Hunters, and Enchanted Airways can be tried too.
Amongst the best things to do in Universal Studios Singapore is to enjoy its many ‘meet & greet’ experiences; these include a chance to encounter Gru and his mischievous Minions as well as Blue, the velociraptor you may recognise from Jurassic World. On your visit, also look for other opportunities where you can come across characters from Madagascar, Sesame Street, Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and the Transformers; you can even witness a baby velociraptor hatching which is not to be missed!
You get some amazing live-action shows at this theme park as well that are worth taking in like “Lights, Camera, Action!” which showcases amazing Hollywood-style special effects. An immersive experience awaits at the Shrek 4-D Adventure, while more Shrek-related fun is on offer at Dance for The Magic Beans featuring Puss in Boots and Kitty Softpaws. There are plenty of different dining options so you can easily have your fill in-between rides; what’s more, you can buy some great merchandise from stores like Big Bird’s Emporium, Hello Kitty Studio Store, Minion Mart and the Fairy Godmother’s Potion Shop.
