SINGAPORE TRIP (Part 2) – Universal Studios
Hi everyone. I’m devoting a whole article as Part 2 of our Singapore trip, because there are lots of photos to share with you all of Universal Studios which was visited by my 2 sons (I didn’t go there so there are no pics of me in any of these!). Again, all these photos have been taken on my elder son’s camera.

Some useful and interesting info on Universal Studios :
Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park located within Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore. It is the second Universal Studios theme park to open in Asia (Japan being the first), and the first in Southeast Asia. Universal Studios Singapore has since attracted more than 2 million visitors in the 9 months from its opening.
Universal Parks & Resorts markets the park as a “one-of-its-kind theme park in Asia” and promises that the park will be the only one of its kind in Southeast Asia for the next 30 years.
Universal Studios Singapore is 20 hectares (49 acres) in size, occupying the easternmost part of the 49-hectare (120-acre) Resorts World Sentosa. There are a total of 24 attractions, of which 18 are original or specially adapted for the park.] The park consists of seven uniquely themed zones which surround a lagoon. Each zone is based on a blockbuster movie or a television show, featuring their own unique attractions, character appearances, dining and shopping areas. The park features the world’s tallest pair of dueling roller coasters that are based on the hit television series, Battlestar Galactica; a castle from the world of Shrek and Monster Rock, a live musical show featuring the infamous Universal Monsters.
Price of entrance tickets to Universal Studios differs according to age, peak hours and season, as follows :
