    Worth one expensive visit

    by Gyppo Written May 22, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not really into theme parks as I don't enjoy the really fast rides (too much of a control freak!) but my girlfriend dragged me here. It's small for such a park but that makes sense in 30 degree heat. It takes about 4 hours to get around all the rides provided you shell out for the fast lane. The rides are actually reasonably tame, though I did chicken out of one which looked scary but turned out not to be. The biggest and most exciting/terrifying looking ride was closed when we went. My favourite was the Transformers ride. GF liked the Sesame Street ride which was really cute - all the others weren't exciting enough for her.

    It costs $74 for an adult and $30-70 for fast lane access (dynamic pricing based on queue length, which the economist in me approves of, but the consumer in me doesn't...). This seems so expensive but we worked out we'd saved more than 4 hours queuing, so it depends on how much you value your time.

  • Cheapest tickets

    by Zankwong19875 Written Dec 7, 2014

    Scouted online to find cheapest tickets to universal studios.

    Found http://traveldelight.biz/ to have cheapest at SGD 64!! This is for those who don't mind picking up the ticket at their physical office

    For a little more convenience, but come at slightly higher price, can also get it from http://www.klook.com/category/43 at SGD65, e-ticket.

    These are the two cheapest sites I found. Feel free to share others.

    Where to Buy Promo Tickets - Oct 2013

    by Kellydhotbabe Written Nov 4, 2013

    It is cheaper to buy Universal Studios tickets in a booth in Changi Airport in Terminal 2. The regular price for a One-Day Pass is S$74 but we got it there for only S$65. There was even a S$10 meal voucher and a S$5 Retail Voucher free! They also offer Child Passes but for Senior Passes, you need to get it from the park gate itself on the day you will go there. You have to go in early because one whole day is not enough for the family enjoyment!

    As if one Universal Studios is enough!

    by santeria01 Written Jan 13, 2013

    Nope, one Universal Studios is not enough.

    I visited Universal Studios in Osaka. I loved the place but I just have a bit reservation on the language. Marty McFly was speaking in Japanese, as is most of the attractions so wasn't able to appreciate them much.

    So I had the chance to visit Singapore, and I knew, everything in Universal Studios Singapore would be in English so, yay!

    Small & Compact Fun

    by walterwu Written Dec 24, 2012

    Singapore's Universal Studio at Resort World Sentosa is small and compact but has no lack of fun and excitement.

    You would be able to cover the whole Universal Studio rides and shows within a day. Some of the exciting rides includes BattleStar Galatica, Ancient Egypt and Transformers. BattleStar Galactica is the ultimate ride experience for the strong hearted.

    Besides rides, merry-go-rounds and shows, there's the 4D ride Shrek which is very mild.

    There are food court but those are pretty expensive and can set you back by about S$12 per person. However, there's a Malaysia style food court on the outside (next to the ticketing booth) that sells best of Malaysia's food choices at very economical prices. As an option, you can exit the Universal Studio with re-entry chop on your arm and have your lunch there (see last picture).

    This is a really fantastic place to come spend the day with your family. It`s a theme park that has 7 Zones ,some which is from our favourite Universal Studio movie. The zones is as follows: Madagascar ,Far Far Away ,Lost World ,Ancient Egypt ,SCI-FI City ,New York and Hollywood. At every zone there is various rides ,3D or 4D entertainment and places where you can get food. You can also take photo`s of your favourite characters like Shrek and Fiona and so on. When taking pics for example with the stars of Madagascar ,the people there will take photo`s with your camera and theirs incase you want to pay for the printed copy of the photo they took with their camera.

    There is no taking photo`s and video`s on the rides and some rides you`ll get wet so take care of your camera`s and electronic devices.

    Interms of tickets ,it`s best to buy your tickets online as you`ll get it for a cheaper rate then paying for it at the entrance. If you got small kids it`s also a good idea to get them a stroller which is on your right hand side at the entrance as there is alot of walking they have to do so they will get tired. Things inside Universal Studio is expensive but some restaurants offer 50% discount if you come after 5pm and buy food from them again provided you brought back your slip ,not sure if this is always like this or a once off.

    One of the best rides I took was Transformers the Ride. Please be aware when you enter the area to take the ride. It looks empty when you enter but don`t be fooled as the path that you have to follow is a long way before you actually get onto the ride. The queue moves fast but it`s definitely worth the wait.

    Universal Studios Singapore

    by theguardianangel Updated Jan 26, 2012

    For themeparks, the Universal Studios is a popular destination and found in Resorts World.
    We booked the ticket online because we heard that there are limited tickets sold within the day. The tickets cost SGD66 each on an ordinary weekday. There are lots of rides you can try.
    Don’t miss the Lights, Camera, Action by Spielberg! Experience the action as if you are in a actual movie shoot! No doubt Spielberg’s a history!

    And if you’re into super thrilling action, try Battlestar Gallactica, the world’s tallest pair of dueling roller coaster! We didn’t dare to try that one! If we ever did, we might have been in the “Final Destination” movie of our lives. Don’t dare to try it if you have heart problem! but for a milder thrill of action, experience the ride from Shrek- King Harold's Far Far Away Castle! Also, I recommend the ride in the Jurassic Park!

    There are lots of souvenir shops and restaurants inside. You can’t ask for more!

    I really love taking pictures in the Revenge of the Mummy. The statues are very realistic.
    I can imagine how I look like if I was an Egyptian in my past life... haha!

    the Universe is so big!!!! the entrance BattleStar Gallactica in Sci-Fi City Revenge of the Mummy OMG! dinosaurs are on the loose!

  • Universal Studios Singapore - Transformer ride

    by singaporegirl1314 Written Dec 27, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The transformer ride is a fantastic 3D roller coaster rides with all its twist and turns. The 3D visuals are amazing good, and it was definitely a wonderful experience!

    The story goes as we sat on one of the robots, and our mission is to help the Autobots. The part I loved most about this ride, is when we were 'falling' from the building. It was exciting and mind-blowing! Absolutely love it!

    I think anyone who come into the park should not miss this ride!

    THUMB UP!~

  • Universal Studios Singapore

    by ginnykam Written Dec 27, 2011

    Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park that is located inside Resort World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore. It is the second Universal Studios theme park to open in Asia (Japan being the first), and the first in Southeast Asia.

    I arrived there in the morning around 10am, and there was already a crowd outside the entrance. Apparently, this must be very popular with the locals and tourists. We entered into the park within minutes and everything was very well-organized.
    This is a very interesting park and I am very impressed by the transformer ride. Despite having to wait for quite some time, I feel it is worth the wait.
    Battlestar Galactica and the revenge of the mummy is a must-try ride too! Very exciting...

    Overall, I am very pleased with the services of the crew as well. All of them were very warm and friendly. Definitely a must-visit place when you come to Singapore!

    Outside in the courtyard, was where you bought your ticket's, and where the BIG Universal Studio globe was rotating. Quite impressive with the mist that was coming out of it.

    Hollywood After Hours @ Universal Studios

    by semper.max Written Oct 21, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For just SG$ 5, you can enjoy Universal Studios Sentosa from 7 to 10 pm and take photos,visit the shops and enjoy the food at the restaurants within the park. Known as Holywood After Hours, this is just perfect for those who would like to see the park for a photoshoot but are not into the exciting rides. HAH is available only during Fridays and Saturdays. You will have to check the Universal Studio website though for its availability (http://www.rwsentosa.com/language/en-US/Attractions/UniversalStudiosSingapore/VisitorInfo) since there were times that they do suspend the HAH. Tickets are sold only at the site starting at 6:30 pm. So if you would want to feel the atmosphere, have your pictures taken and more importantly, not willing to pay the regular SG$66 or SG$72 entrance fee, try out the Hollywood After Hours at Universal Studios Sentosa.

    With my two kids @ Universal Studios The Pharaohs Hollywood? Something tells me I'm not in Hollywood What??? No rides???

    Universal Studios

    by PandawitchElphie Updated Jul 24, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A world-class amusement park here in Asia. Features beloved movies and characters like: Battlestar Galactica, Shrek, Madagascar, Jurassic Park and old eclectic hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe, Frankenstein and Woody Woodpecker. This is good for an entire days fun for family, children, and adults who love taking pictures, taking amusement park rides and watching shows.

    TIPS:
    1. Bring an entire change of clothing (complete with undies and socks); preferably come in shoes that can get wet.
    2. Come Early. You should be outside the park at 9am so you have time to take pictures with the chocolate characters right outside the park.
    3.Park opens at 10am. I would suggest that as soon as you enter, head straight to THE LOST WORLD. Don't stop to take pictures, just go straight to Jurassic Park and put your items in a locker next to the JURASSIC PARK RAPIDS ADVENTURE. You can rent the locker for the day or for a few hours. Put your stuff there IMMEDIATELY. (that means your cameras and wallets...just keep a couple of bills maybe in a zippered/secure pocket somewhere).
    3. Buy a souvenir glass/tumbler. That can be your souvenir for the day plus get a $1 off from refills throughout the day at any resto. (I got the potions bottle from the LAND OF FAR FAR AWAY).

    My suggestion for maximizing the park IF YOU ARRIVE AT THE OPENING TIME OF 10am (if not, good luck with the lines):
    1. Upon entry, put stuff in locker and ride the Jurassic Park Rapids. You will almost surely 85% get wet.
    2. Head next door to the Canopy Flyer.
    3. From there, head to the REVENGE OF THE MUMMY ride.
    4. Then go to the Battlestar Galactica. Pick HUMAN or CYLON or even BOTH. (then grab your gear/cameras from your locker).
    5. Check showtimes, and catch the WATERWORLD show.
    6. Have lunch at GOLDILOCKS (yummy fried chicken).
    7. Catch the SHREK 4D show, then the DONKEY LIVE!, and ride the ENCHANTED AIRWAYS. (if you have a toddler, they might like the MAGIC POTION SPIN inside the Fairy Godmothers Juice Bar)
    8. Don't forget to take pictures of the castle, the Frog King fountain, Shreks house (take a peek inside his window and go to his outhouse!).
    9. Head to Madagscar... no matter how old you are, you might enjoy King Julian's Party-go-Round.
    10. You can head to the CRATE ADVENTURE (really just for kids). Have your picture taken with the Madagascar gang and the giant anchor next to the ship. Don't forget to look up at the tall tree! Spot the plane and it's unfortunate pilot.
    11. Head to Hollywood and take your pics with the universal studios fountain. Take a shot of the director (see if you can find him).
    12. Go to LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!!! and let Steven Spielberg entertain you. (If you're reading this and you have a companion you want to play a little trick on... when you enter, try going into DOOR 1. Then when you enter the sound stage, head for the splash zone, railing... 2nd post on the wharf... that's all I'm going to say :) )
    13. Have your pics taken in New York...the taxi, the buildings...
    14. Head to Sci-fi City and ride the Accelerator.
    15. You now have the option to go Dino hunting in Jurassic Park...there are eggs there you can pose in and a dinosaurs skeleton head you can...err... feed
    16. Then you can just take your time riding the ones you've missed. But be sure to be sitting in front of the universal studios fountain in hollywood by 830 (save your place!) so you can watch the fireworks show at 9pm.
    Tada! A customized tour of Universal Studios for an entire day. You will end up walking back and forth, but with this patter/sched, you'll be able to say you maxed out your day. :) Hope it helps!

    the lakeside area of Universal Studios Singapore is a favorite Photo Stop when strolling around the park since it is located at the middle of the park and has sweeping views of the other areas of the Universal Studios plus is a nice area to sit and rest after a brask walk around the theme park and more particulaly, is the scene of spectacular fire works display (called Lake Hollywood Spectaculr) every 9:30 pm during the Hollywood After Hours scene (which unofortunately we missed since we were one a tight schedule boo hooo hooo).
