Universal Studios Singapore – Tour of the best rides and attractions

I’m Gary Bembridge of Tips For Travellers, in this video I have something for fans of Theme Parks. Universal Studios in Singapore. It’s a fantastic experience. It’s a great theme park and i’m going to show you around universal studios in Singapore. Opening officially in 2011, it is the fourth Universal Studios theme park in the world. It’s the smallest but still has 24 attractions across seven zones set around a central lagoon. There are 30 restaurants and food carts. You enter the park in Hollywood Walk and along the walk there are frequent character appearances. One tip is to turn left on arrival into Madagascar as most people turn right. The rides will be quieter and less lines by going this way. It is themed around the DreamWorks films and it was fun. The Madagascar Great Crate adventure is fun. Next on to Far Far Away Land, themed around Shrek films. This large area has a number of great attractions, including the Enchanted Airways – a more child friendly roller coaster. The Puss in Boots Giant Journeys is one of the new arrivals in the park and also child-friendly. Height restrictions apply to these of these rides. I really enjoyed the Shrek 4-D Adventure, held in the theater with rows of seats that have some movement. The Donkey Live shows is great fun too. Next you head into the Lost World. The first area is Jurassic Park. There is the fantastic Canopy Flyer which whisks you over the treetops. For kids The Dyno Soren lets them ride their own flying dinosaur. The brave can ride the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. The second part of the Lost World is Waterworld. It’s a live show based on the film of the same name, set in a world covered by water. There is remarkable jet skiing and boat actions, with plenty of bangs and explosions. Make sure you check the times of the shows – and make sure you go. You leave the Lost World to enter Ancient Egypt. This is an impressive part of the park. It includes the Treasure Hunter where the kids can drive there own Jeep around a track. There are frequent appearances by Egyptian Royalty. The adrenaline junkies can then enjoy the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster in the dark which has lots of twists and turns. Carter’s Curiosities sells Egyptian souvenirs. It’s a complete change as you leave ancient Egypt to enter the future and Sci-Fi city. The main feature here is the world’s tallest dueling roller coasters based on Battlestar Gallatica – select the Human side on Cylon and ride over 14 storeys high. If that is too much then try the Accelerator – whirling and twirling cups. My favourite ride though is the 3-D Transformers ride. You travel in small pods with 3-D screens all around you as the pods twist and turn. It’s my all-time favourite Universal ride. Beside here is New York with famous replicas like the library and Rockefeller Center. The attractions here include “Light Camera Action” hosted by Steven Spielberg. A set is destroyed by a hurricane before your eyes. There is also a fun space adventure with Elmo and Super Grover. Then you are back where we started in Hollywood and the exit. I recommend stopping at the Hollywood China Bistro for some dim sum, noodles or rice. Or perhaps a Starbuck’s coffee from the Celebrity Cafe. It’s not a far from the large Universal Studios store. It may be the smallest Universal Studios in the world but, as you can see from the 24 attractions and 30 places to eat, there’s a lot to see and to do. It’s really easy to navigate and get around as it’s in a circle around that central lagoon. I loved every minute of my time. I hope you enjoyed that video and it’s given you some great travel inspiration or ideas.
