Universal Studios Singapore once again...

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, August 18, 2012
This has probably been my third trip to Universal Studios Singapore...and I have to say, I haven't paid the full entrance fee each time I am there..It's either for free or at a discounted rate. Guess I am just a sucker for discounts. Anything just to save money! Before we entered the park, we had dinner at the Malaysian food street just outside the park. It features food all over Malaysia.
Here's what I had.
This time round, the park was only opened to those exclusive ticket holders to the STAR event after 7pm. CT and I went on a mission to try the new rides like Battlestar Galatica as well as the Transformers. So that's where we headed when we arrived but along the way (since they closed the right side when we entered which was a faster route to the Sci-Fi City where the rides I wanted to take were all there), we had to stop by at Mummy's Return just for CT to experience it. It was amazing as usual. I love the ride for its effects.
There were two separate rides in Battlestar Galatica-one with legs on the floor while the other, with your legs hanging. I tried both and frankly speaking, no roller coaster ride seems to thrill me. CT and I were practically talking during our roller coaster ride like it was a casual Sunday night on a Ferris Wheel or something like that. The HIGHLIGHT of the night was TRANSFORMERS!!!! It was AWESOME..TTM(to the max)!!

I expected a 3D ride to just be wearing 3D glasses and moving on a fixed vehicle which moves up and down but I was dead wrong. Its a 3D kind of ride which really takes you to places and the cool part of it was how close Bumblebee or Optimus Prime was to you and you just feel so close to them like you were inside the movie or just being part of the whole action next to the Transformers!

Throughout the whole ride, I was telling CT how cool this is!

We ended the night at 11pm with our last ride in Jurassic Park. It was a wet ride where we got drenched. Did that on purpose since its best to get wet last! It was all fun and we had a great time! This is definite one activity I really love doing with CT as we both love the adrenaline!

Just some observations which I didnt like in the park that is, the staff in charge of the rides will not allow you in if you have bags (for the rollercoaster rides)...and for the more dangerous ones like Battlestar Galatica, you are not even allowed to have anything with you at all..not even a coin in your pocket! That is how picky they are or rather Kia Si.. (scared to die). During the ride, they even asked CT to take off his spectacles but CT insisted that it wont drop off and it wont be any fun if he were to take off his spectacles but they insisted and poor CT, couldnt enjoy the ride as he couldnt see the view from high above.

I have been to many theme parks and I have to say, Singaporeans are really a kia si bunch. They are probably afraid that you drop something and start inconveniencing them or suing them for something you lost. I am not sure...but its just irritating that they are overly protective that it was so inconvenient to find a locker each time you excitedly want to rush and queue up for the roller coaster ride.
