Universal Studios, Singapore

I'm finally back from Singapore!

One of the highlights from my Singapore work trip was a half day team building event at Universal Studios. (I was pretty thrilled when I read the agenda!)

After the morning meeting, we reached Universal Studios around 1.30pm. Already half a day gone, and it didn't help that it started pouring heavily when we arrived. Had to wait about an hour before the rain stopped.

In hindsight, we didn't have to worry cos we pretty much covered the entire theme park in half a day (including lining up for 45 minutes for a particular ride which only lasted 40 seconds!!). The whole place was pretty small. When we first looked at the map, we thought there would be a lot of walking to the different "lands" - Ancient Egypt, New York, Jurassic Park, Faraway Land etc. But in actual fact, each "land" was quite small and it took less than 15 minutes from one end to the other.

Some photos -

Souvenier Shop

Madagascar Show

(nice, but super short. ONE song and that was it)

Faraway Castle (from Shrek)

Performance at the Shrek Theatre

Another Performance

Me, at the entrance

Walkway right after the entrance

My favourite item was the 4D Shrek show. Really good! The mummy adventure roller coaster was good too - I was such a scaredy cat that I just clutched the railing, closed my eyes most of the time and hardy made a sound, while I could hear my colleagues screaming around me. Ha hahh....

Overall, I would give Universal Studios Singapore a "quite nice" rating only. A bit steep after the SGD77 ticket price conversion esp for entire families.

But since my ticket was free, I have no complaints ;)

Ok, side track a bit to the hotel room. It was the smallest (considering the room rate) business hotel that I've ever stayed in. Looks alright at first glance from the pic below, but the 2 ends of the picture are the 2 ends of the hotel room. So compact that the "cupboard" at the bottom right of the writing table was actually the mini bar and the "drawer" was where the tea/coffee facilities and hairdryer were !
