Universal Studios is one of the greatest and if not, the greatest and a must-go-to attraction in Singapore! No one wants to miss Universal Studio in Singapore, right? If you’ve been to Singapore but haven’t been to USS, then you haven’t been to Singapore yet! This must be on the top of your itinerary! Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park located within Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore.
My partner and I decided to take a break at work and visit Singapore. You may read about our Singapore adventures but let me tell you first about our USS experience. After our sumptuous breakfast, off we go to USS. I will give you a quick tour around USS.
Every one who enters USS must have this shot! If you see this rotating globe with the word “Universal” on it, then you are indeed in USS.
Note: It is a little tricky to take a selfie since its rotating.
USS is divided into several divisions. New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar and Hollywood. Each division have different attractions.
Oh, look at that joy! #minionCraze It seems that not only in the Philippines we have those minion craze!
These are the attractions and booths found in Madagascar.
And yes, photo ops are a must! #selfie Don’t worry, there are official USS photographers that will take pictures of you in which you can purchase.
Welcome to the Galaxy Far Far Away… That ain’t right…Welcome to Far Far Away! Human for scale.
In the King’s perspective, the view of the castle. We were able to get a hop on the attraction inside the castle. It’s a 4D ride. If you’ve been to Enchanted Kingdom, they are similar but this is in 3D which have moving seats and air that blows in your face.
These attractions are one of the longest. So we were not able to hop on it.
More attractions in The Lost World
The queue on this ride is damn long! We were not able to hop on this one.
Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime, one of the most queued photo attractions
The one on the left is just a life size Optimus Prime, non moving. But on the right is the Optimus Prime mascot.
Human for scale again.
We all love Sesame Street! Just in time, we were able to watch Cookie Monster, Oscar the grouch and Bert during their street performance!
More of Elmo!
These are some Lego toys of the Transformers invading USS! Oh look at how the guy on the right screams!
There are plenty of restaurants to dine inside USS but since we were so exhausted and hungry, we opt to dine at Mel’s Drive-In. The environment is full of jukeboxes. Feels like we were in the 80’s
Must.. Take.. This.. Bite!! We had this burger and fries combo. Take note, the size of their burgers are not the same as ours here in the Philippines. This regular burger is as big as a double cheese burger. Just look at how wide her mouth is in order to take a bite! Our lunch cost around 25.90 SGD. And since we have a 10 USD discount (5 SGD each), we were able to spend 15.90 SGD instead.
If you think chocolates here are expensive, no they are not!That’s what we thought at first. We suggest you buy those that can be only found here. We thought we can find those somewhere in Singapore but we can’t. We should have bought them already. Oh well.
We were really glad that the weather cooperated with us. It was a bright, sunny day when we went to USS. We suggest you bring extra shirts and wear protective gears such as sunglasses, caps and don’t forget the sun block. The weather in Singapore is hotter compared to our country but not humid. So when you perspire, you won’t feel sticky unlike here.
Singapore is known to have potable water which means clean drinking water everywhere. So you might want to bring an empty water bottle for you to refill as there are many drinking fountains all over USS. The next time we visit USS, we will surely try all attractions.
You can finish touring USS late afternoon if you won’t be visiting all the attractions. Since we have a lot in our itinerary for the day, we opted to move on to the next after USS.
