Ride the Movies at Universal Studios Singapore

Day 4

We spent our whole day at Universal Studios.  Our group was divided and the other half went to Jurong East. This time, we rode the Sentosa Express at level 3 near Food Republic.

We booked our tickets online and we grabbed the 3+1 MasterCard promo for $222. Regular ticket sale price is $74 for adult and $54 for child. There is 15-20% discount because it's the Great Singapore Sale.

The park opens at 10am so be there early to avoid long queue inside.

USS is divided into 7 distinct zones.

Upon entering you will find yourself in Hollywood.This street is lined up with shops and they say that it replicated the Hollywood in 1940's. Here you will encounter famous Hollywood actors and characters.


After Hollywood, we turned right to New York zone. The attractions here are Lights, Camera, Action! by Steven Spielberg and Elmo Spaghetti Chase. You should not missed the Lights, Camera, Action! because it's so amazing. It's a 15 minute demonstration of a hurricane in New York City. This is also the area where the Sesame Street casts do their performance. Too bad, Elmo is not present.


Next is the Sci-Fi City. The main attractions here are the Transformer Ride and the Battlestar Galactica. We took the Transformer ride and it's so fantastic. It's another level of 3D ride. Though we queued for almost 40 minutes, the ride was all worth it!

Battlestar Galactica is a dual roller coaster. The Human and Cyclone. The blue one is the Cyclone and the red one is the Human. I didn't try to ride both because I'm scared of heights.


The main ride here is the indoor roller coaster called The Revenge of the Mummy. We also encountered the adventurer Rick and Evelyn O'Connell.


Who would not know the famous Jurassic Park and Waterworld. The main attraction here are the Canopy Flyer and Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. In Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, there's a chance that you'll get wet so bring a raincoat if possible. They also sell raincoats near the entrance of the ride.

In Waterworld, you will watch live action and stunts based on the blockbuster film Waterworld. It's like watching the film..LIVE. If you don't want to get wet, don't sit at blue and green benches.


We watched the Shrek 4D Adventure. It was an amazing experience as you can feel the water sputtering and spiders crawling just by sitting in the theater.  There is also the Enchanted Airways which is a junior coaster and Donkey Live Show where you’ll be literally talking to a donkey.


The last zone is the Madagascar. It's based on the animated movie. Because we were so tired, we didn't tried the attractions. While resting under the shade, I saw people lining up. I got curious and I also lined up without knowing what will happen. The suddenly all these characters we loved came out for a live performance. I found myself squeezing to get in the front row. After the show, line up for photo ops with Alex, Gloria, King Julien XIII and penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private.

By the time we finished visiting all the zones, we were dead tired.  But the day was filled with fun and new experience for us. I'm hoping we can come back again. Highly recommended for family and friends. This is one of our best time in our Singapore tour.
