One Day Pass at Universal Studios Singapore Part 1

Before we went to Singapore in early May, we already bought the entrance ticket- one day pass from the official website of Resorts World Sentosa. In order to avoid the huge crowd, we opted for one day weekday pass which cost S$66 per person. We printed the Home Tickets and showed to the workers upon entering Universal Studios Singapore. (USS) To our surprise, USS was crowded with many many tourists although we went there on Thursday, so you can imagine what'll it be during weekends.

USS is located at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), thus we went to RWS via The Sentosa Express at VivoCity shopping mall, Level 3. We paid using our Ezlink card, S$3.00 per person. We then alighted at the first stop- the Waterfront Station. Once u get down at Waterfront station, you will get to see a clear sign board which lead u to USS.

Resort Worlds Casino is on the left while USS is on the right.

There are a few movie-themed attractions at USS, which include the Hollywood, Madagascar, Far Far Away, The Lost World, Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City and New York. After we entered USS at the main entrance, Hollywood is on our left. There u can see a huge souvenir shop selling USS themed T-shirts, souvenirs etc. Many restaurants along the side, such as Celebrity Cafe & Bakery, Hollywood China Bistro. We took a photo with Betty Boop over there, haha. By the way, we got S$10 food voucher & S$5 souvenir voucher from USS, maybe as a form of compensation because there're some rides which are still closed.

The t-shirts are sold with reasonable price, I bought 2 pieces, but not the Madagascar one, ha.

Ferrero Rocher's Car? A stall selling some snacks.
We then walked straight until we reached the Madagascar attractions site. A lady worker passed a show schedule to us so it's easier for us to catch performances which we're interested in. We managed to catch the Central Park Zooapalooza Tour at Madagascar.

So cute

Waving at the audience
We didn't stay too long at Madagascar as it's more for kids. We headed to Far Far Away and tried the Enchanted Airways junior roller coaster. We waited for around 30min for this ride but it's nothing special, a bit dizzy after we 'landed'. The main attraction here is the Shrek 4-D Adventure. We waited very long before we could enter the theater.

Poster on the wall outside the theater, quite funny. The 4-D movie was nothing great, sadly to say this. I find the 4-D movie at Sentosa much better than the USS one.

Nicely decorated shops.

Think if wanna go then maybe wait til few more months, when all the rides are ready, especially the huge roller coaster at Sci-Fi. Maybe by that time no more voucher as rebate but u can try more rides lo.

The crowd there really crazy. So many people!
