A Day At Universal Studios, Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore

There are so many things to do in Singapore but Universal Studios Singapore should be at the top of your list for a few reasons – not only is it fun but it is much cheaper than the American Universal parks, it is easy to see in one day and it offers great fun for all ages.

Universal Studios Singapore is a smaller park than its American counterpart but is still just as magical and fun and definitely worth a visit for anyone who loves rides, movies or theme parks.

The park is divided into 7 lands to navigate yourself around.


Universal Studios Singapore

Offering a Walk of Fame and a chance to meet the Minions as well as a Mel’s Drive-in restaurant complete with Mel’s Dinette waitresses; Hollywood is a pretty awesome land to start off with. There is a handful of merchandise stores in this area along with a Starbucks and Chinese Bistro. Food Stalls are dotted around all areas but in this one you can find popcorn vans and giant fizzy drinks.

New York

Universal Studios Singapore

Jump on the Lights, Camera, Action Sound Stage Tour or enjoy a Sesame Street inspired ride. If you’re like us and enjoy a good pizza then head to the delicious Pizza Parlour offering NY styled slices or visit KT’S grill (yes I love it ‘coz it has my name in it) for a western meal of burgers and steak. You can also have breakfast with the Sesame Street characters in this land.

Sci-Fi City

Universal Studios Singapore

A futuristic area with thrill rides such as the BattleStar Galactica roller coaster and the Accelerator ride as well as the Transformers 3D ride; which is awesome and uses 3D screens at a whole new level of awesomeness. There are futuristic styled cafes and merchandise stores in this land.

Ancient Egypt

Universal Studio Singapore

Home to the popular Revenge of the Mummy ride, Ancient Egypt also offers a treasure hunters jeep ride for younger children and an Egyptian themed buffet serving mid-eastern food. There is also a store selling replicas of historic artefacts, tools and fossils from the Egyptian period.

Lost World

Universal Studios Singapore

Inspired by Jurassic Park this area offers a rock climbing wall, the Canopy Flyer ride, Dino-soarin and the L.A. favourite; Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. You can also enjoy the WaterWorld stunt show in this area, with its special effects and dare devil stunts. Find time to try the yummy dino-shaped chicken nuggets at the Discovery Food Court.

Far Far Away

Universal Studios Singapore

A world of Shrek, this Land offers a Puss in Boots’ suspended roller coaster as well as a 4D Shrek Adventure which is great fun! You can also catch a Donkey show or watch the Puss in Boots and Kitty Softpaws have a flamenco style dance off in the streets.  Younger children can enjoy the Ferris Wheel or a junior roller coaster and meet their favourite Shrek characters.


Universal Studios Singapore

Offering a Crate Adventure River Boat ride and a Carousel for younger children, this area is smaller than others but the theming makes up for it. Again, this section includes themed food stalls, a cafe and merchandise stalls. My favourite part is the Madagascar Boogie; I like to move it, move it!

Universal Studios Singapore is a fantastic day trip for those big kids in us, tickets cost S$74 and the park is open from 10am to 9pm. The park is in the Sentosa area – from the city centre we found it easier to grab a taxi (about a 15 minute journey from our hotel on Victoria Street), costing around S$10.

Don’t forget to check out Marina Bay Hotel, the Singapore sunset and many other things to do in Singapore whilst you’re in the country.
