I decided that if Thad can write a TR, I can give one a try, so here it is. Couple of months ago I had a stopover in Singapore for a few days. On my first full day there I decided to visit Universal Studios Singapore, since last time I was in the city I was not able to make it to this park and ride Battlestar Galaticia due to lack of time. My initial impression is that this is a very clean and well laid out park. It has a layout more that of Islands of Adventure then of either one of the Universal Studios in the US. Meaning that the park is set up as a circle, surrounding a lagoon. Even though it is kind of a small park, it is packed with quite a few attractions.
While standing in line to buy my ticket, I was told by a local that the first thing you want to do is to bee line it to Transformers the Ride, and then work your way to the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, because these two rides form a line pretty quick. So, that is what I did.
Time to start this Trip Report:
Once inside, there is a nice covered entrance street into the park. I bet it comes in real handy with the daily Singapore rain showers. All three times I have been to Singapore I have only experienced two weather patterns: rain and extreme heat.
OOH, my minion is calling me into the Minion Store. Sorry, but I have a mission plan to complete. Next stop. . .
Sci-Fi City! A well themed land that made this sci-fi nerd all wet and excited. Oh, and it is also home to Transformers the Ride. A fun ride just like the ones in Hollywood and Orlando.
EVAC here is our transportation for this ride. Yup, it's time to ride a robot now. Good thing I was all wet and excited at this point.
Optimus Prime showed up to yell "Roll Out!" So that's what a did.
Poor Battlestar, I wish you were working, you look like such a fun ride. Too bad you are nothing more than a photo op right now. Oh well, off to Jurassic Park.
On the way to see some dinosaurs, I passed the Revenge of the Mummy with a '0 minute' wait time. How could I not pass that up? The ride is just like the one in Orlando, but with better theming and no Brendan Fraser.
I finally made it to my destination. The Canopy Flyer in the back was kind of cool, but extremely short. The track is pretty much a simple loop, and the whole trip takes about what seemed like a minute to complete. I think Teeny Weeny in Tusenfryd is longer than this ride.
Now on to Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. You get to ride in a rapids raft on this one instead of the big boats that are at the other parks. Same dinos, but instead of the predators escaping, there is a flash flood that hits the park. The ride ends with a lift up a water elevator and like a roller coaster, what goes up, must come down.
Time to play, 'You Choose the Caption.' "Look at the size of nads on that one," or "Hee, Hee, Dino Butt."
Next up, Far Far Away. Home to the exciting and ever popular Shrek 4-D Adventure, and some other stuff.
Decided to stop by the Ogre Shack, but no one was home. You could walk all around it, but the doors were locked to go in. Well, since I am here, I guess I can work in a credit.
Time to ride Enchanted Airways. Nice family coaster, and yes Thad, it is taller than Grover, so you can ride it.
Speaking of Thad, here is a little coaster porn for you.
Cruise Time! Madagascar here I come. Just hope there is no fossa lurking around. That would really ruin my trip.
Just like a cruise, you get to ride in a boat. Nice dark ride with an addicting soundtrack and pretty good animatronics, but beware fossa are all over the place on this ride.
And also like a cruise, there is entertainment. Because when in Madagascar, you just got to "Move it, Move it!"
Once back in port, I made my way to New York to experience the most thrilling ride of the trip.
Elmo's Spaghetti Space Chase! The most exciting, thrill a second ride in the park. You join Elmo in an outer space adventure to recover all of Earth's spaghetti that was stolen by the evil Macaroni.
The ride was such a rush, I just had to take a break after riding it. Good thing Water World was about to start. This was the perfect way to unwind from my space adventure.
After riding Transformers one more time, and the Mummy 6 more times (again no wait, not sure why people were not riding this fun ride), it was time to leave. Bye, bye my minion. See you next time.
Over all, it is a very nice park. It is well themed, not that crowded, and has a nice mix of rides.
Wow, Hershey World moved to just out side of Universal Studios Singapore. Bad news though, there is no singing cow ride in this one.
Next post, Singapore's other themed park (trust me, you are not going to want to miss this one).
