The Overview

Don’t be fooled by its compact size: at just 20 hectares and a breezy 10-minute walk from end to end, Universal Studios’ first Southeast Asian outpost is jam-packed with drawcards for kids, not to mention kids at heart. Part of Singapore’s Resorts World Sentosa mega-development, this movie-inspired theme park opened this March with 24 attractions set around a cute, albeit modestly proportioned, lagoon. Classic rides like Steven Spielberg’s Lights, Camera, Action! special-effects show, the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster and the Jurassic Park raft plunge will appease Universal Studios aficionados, but the park also boasts novelties like the Madagascar flume ride and the towering Battlestar Galactica, a pair of dueling rollercoasters that twist and turn at speeds of up to 90 kilometers per hour. For less thrill and more chill, amble down Mel’s Drive-In with burgers and cokes in hand, or don special-vision glasses and slip away into a 4-D fairytale adventure in Shrek’s Far Far Away Castle.
