Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park located within Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore. It features 28 rides, shows, and attractions in seven themed zones.

It was a key component of the Genting Group‘s bid for the right to build Singapore’s second integrated resort. On 8 December 2006, the Singapore government announced that the consortium had won the bid. Construction of the theme park and the rest of the resort started on 19 April 2007. It is the second Universal Studios theme park to open in Asia (Japan being the first), and the first in Southeast Asia

The official plans for the park were unveiled to the public when Universal Studios Singapore released a park map to the public on 20 October 2009.[1] Universal Studios Singapore attracted more than 2 million visitors in the 9 months from its openingThe park has been marketed by Universal Parks & Resorts as a “one-of-its-kind theme park in Asia” and promised that the park would be the only one of its kind in Southeast Asia for the next 30 years.

Universal Studios Singapore occupies 49 acres of Resorts World Sentosa. The park is arranged thematically, with each area paying tribute to a location, film, or television show. Destinations include New York City, Hollywood, Madagascar, and a trip back to Ancient Egypt.

 Fiction-themed areas include Shrek’s Far Far Away, Lost World, and Sci-Fi City, where Battlestar Galactica-themed duelling roller coasters and an indoor dark coaster, Revenge of the Mummy, dominate the thrill rides.

In addition to the many rides—that range from kiddie-friendly to daredevil —the park also has diverse dining options, shopping, and live shows throughout the day and night.

Address: 8 Sentosa Gateway, Singapore

On 3 April 2019, Genting Group announced the expansion of Universal Studios Singapore with two new themed areas, Minion Park and Super Nintendo World, with the former replacing Madagascar. So we can hope to see more of it in near future.😊😊
