Family trip to Universal Studios

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, January 08, 2011
Our Resident Committee organised a free trip to Universal Studios this evening. But before that, we had to attend a town hall workshop addressing 3 problems in our area- Dog poo, litter at carpark and lack of child care centres. There were representatives from HDB, NEA and MCYS that came down to participate in it as well and to gather our feedback.



After the workshop, there was a light refreshments provided for us before we headed to Universal Studios to watch the fireworks.


We roamed the area for about 1 and a half hours before entering Universal Studios which opened at 7pm.






We walked quite alot as there were many things to see.




I had to buy the popcorns which I loved. Came here the first time with my colleagues and absolutely loved the Garrett Popcorns- caramel and cheese flavour mixed. However, ordered too much. Ate so much until it felt just too sinful.



At 7pm, we could finally enter Universal Studios. However, there were a lot of places not allowed to enter.



The children seemed to have fun even though the rides were not available.




Not many pictures of Danielle as she has yet to learn how to sit still and smile.


The ambience in the day and night is so different. At night, it feels so much more mystical and colourful. Too bad the rides were not open.


After sightseeing for a while, we went out to find dinner as the prices in the Theme park was quite ridiculous and the restaurants were very crowded.


We finally settled at KFC for dinner!
After dinner, we made our way to watch the crane dance at 9pm.



The show was quite spectacular and entertaining. Caleb enjoyed it a lot! As for Danielle, she found it too loud.



After watching the crane dance, we rushed back to Universal Studios for the fireworks at 930pm.

I didnt really enjoy the fireworks as it was too bright. They seemed to have used flare and it was very glaring.

Nevertheless, it was a fun but tiring day for the family. Reached home close to 11pm.

hi florence

I only entered the universal studios at night when all the rides were closed. Only restaurants and main shops were open for us. So there were not much to see. But I have been before in the day time with my colleagues and yes, I would recommened that your kids are 10 years and above before you bring them because at least they can get to ride the adult ones with you. Not many kiddy rides. Actually the whole studios, also not many to start with
