Universal Studios Singapore opened in 2010 with 7 themed zones and features countless rides and shows – all related to the film studios’ major hit movies.

As Asia’s second Universal Studios theme park after Japan’s, Universal Studios Singapore covers about 20 hectares with 18 attractions that are original to the park. It’s a good idea to allow a whole day to casually explore the circularly laid out park and enjoy all the rides and attractions it offers.

What to See and Do at Universal Studios Singapore

Experience cutting-edge rides, shows, and attractions based on your favourite blockbuster films and television series, including Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey, Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON™, TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle, Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure™, Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase and more!

Start off in Hollywood. Strolling down Hollywood Boulevard will make you think that you’re in the States, not in a tropical Asian country. This is the main shopping area of the park. New York is based on the big city and is where you can have your photo snapped with your favourite characters.

Continue to Sci-Fi City that features a pair of the world’s tallest intertwining rollercoasters, then to Ancient Egypt where you will be faced with two massive guardian statues. The atmosphere is truly that of ancient Egypt. Get in to experience the Revenge of the Mummy ride, a must for adults but not quite the best thing for young kids.

Next comes The Lost World which is based on the two popular films Jurassic Park and Waterworld – it offers lots of excitement and a huge T-Rex. A must-visit for Shrek fans is the Far Far Away zone, featuring a beautiful castle and Shrek’s swamp. Don’t worry – you’ll get plenty of chances to have your photo taken with Shrek and Fiona.

The last stop at Universal Studios Singapore is Madagascar. This is a real winner and is guaranteed to bring a smile to people of all ages with its well-known characters, indoor boat ride, and special effects and sounds.

Good to Know

You’ll never go hungry at Universal Studios Singapore as there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. There’s also lots of fun items and merch to pick up on your shopping stops, ranging from T-Shirts and keyrings to many more Universal Studios goodies.
