Sentosa Island: Universal Studios in pictures

I have a new dream people. My dream is not only visit all the Disney parks in the world, but also to visit all the Universal Studios parks. The Singaporean park is the first Universal Studios that I have visited so far and I really enjoyed it. This park was not as perfectly set out as the Disney parks I’ve visited but it still had plenty of nostalgia for many of my favourite movies and characters. Before visiting the park I made my own Guide to Singapore Universal Studios, so check out it if you intend on visiting.

What I loved about the Singapore Universal Studios is that its easy to get to, you can do it in a day, the lines weren’t crazy during the week and great themed areas and rides, lots rides for kids and express tickets. What could have been better isย an evening show or parade (no available most of the week), better merchandise, more rides, character/movie themed food outlets and restaurants. I guess I may be expecting a bit much but I did leave the park little merchandise and don’t feel compelled to return to this park now I’ve experienced. However, I really appreciated that this park had so rides that my toddler could do and height charts out the front of the entrance gave us a good indications of what we could expect that she could visit. When we did the visited Florida last year, we decided against visiting the Universal Studios because there was little for her do it at those parks.

Another reason why this visit was so wonderful is that we were chosen as the First Family! Every day a family is chosen to open the park. We were chosen at the gates after Marco asked the nice attendant a question. We were taken in to a special room and were explained what we were meant to do to open the park. We were treated to free bottled water and 10 free Universal Express passes. We were actually going to buy some of those, so this was a big saving for us. Once we got out the park attendants introduced us, then Marco had to say ‘we are the [Surname] Family, Lights Camera Action’ and I click the directors clapperboard. Then we got a photo with Puss in Boots’, which we received for free later that day. Funny thing was is that Marco stumbled on his last name, since he pronounces different in English normally and I had already taught the announcers how to say it properly. He also held our family name upside down when we got our free photo. The whole thing was hilarious and is now immortalised in our photo.

During our visit we were able to do just about all the rides. I don’t do roller coasters, since I can’t somersault backwards, it just feels wrong. My favourite rides were Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey, Enchanted Airways and Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. Octavia’s favourites were the Magic Potion Spin and King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round. For lunch we had burgers and fries at 50’s diner, Mel’s Dinettes (Hollywood), which wasn’t too bad. We also bought the Cookie Monsters Chocolate Chip Cookies from Me Want Cookies stand (New York), which tasted as yummy as I imagined.

So here are my photos from my day at Singapore Universal Studios at Sentosa Island on day 7 of our Singapore Trip. For more in-depth info on the park see my Guide to Singapore Universal Studios.

    1. We sure did. Until I visited the Florida Disney parks I never imagined that I would have this need to see them all but it really is the happiest place I have ever been. My partner thinks now we have see the best we can’t enjoy the rest but I really like seeing the different takes of Disney and also Universal in other countries. Universal doesn’t have the same magic but it still has nostalgia for us. Its a long term dream anyway ๐Ÿ™‚
