[dropcap size=big]R[/dropcap]anked the top amusement park in Asia by TripAdvisor for four years in a row, Universal Studios Singapore is certainly one attraction that you should make a point to visit during your Singapore trip.
Located within Resorts World Sentosa, the theme park promises a full day of fun and thrills for visitors of all ages. Here is a quick list of all the things you can do when you go for premium Singapore tour packages.
RIDE THE MOVIES
Thrill seekers will love the adrenaline-pumping action on the park’s cutting-edge rides. Zip through the skies on Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs CYLON, the world’s tallest duelling coasters, or experience the hyper-realistic 3D ride in TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle. The younger ones are not left out – with rides such as Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase and Puss in Boots’ Giant Journey, they can join the heroes to save the world, or in some cases, spaghetti. There are rides aplenty to sate the thirst of adventure for people of every age.
WATCH ACTION-PACKED SHOWS
Keep a tight grip on your seats cause the special effects in these shows may just blow you away. From live shows with explosions and death-defying stunts in WaterWorld, to surviving a hurricane on set in Live, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg and becoming part of the action in Shrek 4-D Adventure, the shows promise to leave you wowed on your Singapore trip. And if you are staying late on selected nights, remember to catch the spectacular pyrotechnics after the sun goes down.
GET UP CLOSE WITH STREET ENTERTAINERS
As you are exploring the theme park, keep an eye out for exciting live performances at various locations, at specific times of the day. From grooving to the beats of The Cruisers and Mel’s Dinettes to b-boying with the impressive Rockafellas and singing along at the Sesame Street Shows, there’s plenty of surprises all throughout the park. On selected weekends, you’ll also get to witness the Hollywood Dreams Parade, a spectacle of energetic dancers and magnificent floats along the streets of Universal Studios Singapore.
SAY HI TO YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTERS
One of the highlights of any theme park trip on your Singapore tour is to get photos with a host of your favourite characters. Get up close to recognisable personalities, from icons like Marilyn Monroe to the Minions from Despicable Me and the Autobots of Transformers. You will cherish capturing these moments as keepsakes of your trip. And to share with family and friends.
SHOP FOR SOUVENIRS AND GIFTS
All theme park visitors know that a day in a theme park is not complete without a visit to the retail shops, to pick up some exclusive memorabilia for the trip. Here, you’ll be spoilt for choice as well. From tee shirts and mugs to figurines and plushies, there are products here from the collections of the Minions, Transformers, Jurassic Park, Madagascar, Sesame Street and even Hello Kitty, and more. Some are exclusive to the park, so if you want bragging rights for what you can’t get elsewhere, definitely get them during your holiday packages.
