Day tour: Universal Studio Singapore (USS)

Plz note the actual date of this day tour was on Aug 23rd, 2014.

The must captured momento
I was holding USS revolving logo
with my two fingers
We bought Air Asia air tickets two weeks before boarding to Singapore. It costs us RM207 return per pax. If you lucky, you may get cheaper than dat! We bought the USS entrance tickets from a stranger that we found in Backpackers Buddies Malaysia (BBM). She charged RM120 per tickets and she had two tickets. We bought both from her and another two more from travel agent (RM150 per tickets). For those, you may buy from RWSonline or for cheaper rate by coupon.

We depart at 7.40 am and it took an hour from Kuala Lumpur to Changi Airport, Singapore. We ride on three variation trains from Changi to USS and it took more or less an hour. We ride on skytrain from Changi Airport arrival hall to T2 (Terminal 2). The skytrain operates from 5am till 2.30am. [Tip1: During non-operating hours, they provided free shuttle bus service at T1 Departure Hall Door 5 (near row 14)].

We continued ride on MRT to Harbour Front to get the Sentosa Express to Resort World Sentosa (USS). We chose to travel by monorail instead of bus or taxi. Besides, traveler may opt to walk along the pathway while sightseeing the amazing scenery of Singapore. Plz note USS operating hours is from 10.00am to 6.00pm. (Tip2: from Harbour Front to RWS USS and return, you may choose monorail, bus, taxi or walking).

(Tip3: Plz note to take a brochure after the USS entrance cuz it helped much to navigate the area, halal food, surau, restroom and others). There are 7 areas to be visited which are Madagascar, Far Far Away, The Lost World, Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City, New York and Hollywood. Firstly, we went to Madagascar and ride on A Crate Adventure Boat. A trouble-free boat however exciting scenes on your left and right side along the way till end of tunnel.

Next we drop by Far Far Away Land and aboard on Enchanted Airways, which is dragon roller coaster, the track not so high and the ride was for a few minutes. Later, we experienced Shrek 4D Fairytale Adventure. We felt such in the movies cuz our seats were shaking and some water sprinkling in our face and hand.

After that, we stopover The Lost World and managed to ride on yellow round boat and it turn around along the water alley and at the last point, the boat fell down. (Tip4: Plz wear ur own disposable raincoat to prevent get drenched). Not to worry if get wet cuz drypod is provided over there SGD5 per use. (Tip5: We queue in single rider lane to get faster. Plz note, Single Riders are used to fill empty seats. All parties will be split up).

We went to Canopy Flyer which located in front of Dino-Soaring. After 10 minutes lined up, the crew members announced that the flyers were temporary closed due to weather conditions. It was drizzling only, however they didn’t want to take a risk perhaps. We a bit upset; hence we went for lunch.

We had our lunch at Ancient Egypt café and performed solat at surau nearby this area. (Tip6: The surau is very small and plz note to bring ur own telekung). We ate beryani rice with roasted chicken and opted juice as our drink.

It was still drizzling so we have fun in indoor games. We still in Ancient Egypt area, therefore we experienced Revenge of The Mummy. It is a roller coaster plunge into total darkness with 2D surroundings and the scariest part was it went down reversely (backwards dropped) with high speed and suddenly. I felt like dropped out from the seat! (Tip7: Bags and loose items are not allowed, paid locker provided).

Then, we enjoyed the Transformers Ride 3D Battle in Sci-Fi City. We were advised to wear the battle glass for utmost effects. Wow I felt such an optimus prime or bumble bee or at least I was one of the autobot combating and fighting the megatron gang. We didn’t manage to ride on BattleStar Galactica due to it seems not working. I was told it has some technical problem.

We proceed to ‘lights, camera, action’ hosted by Steven Spielberg in New York area. Audiences experienced special effects such storm hitting New York City including the rattling and flepping windows, wind blowing and blazing fire. (Tip8: To avoid the water sprinkle to you, dun stand in the first row!).

Before proceed to next ride, we managed to witness the street shows from 7 areas. Some videos taken as above. (Tip9: Water will be sprayed by some of the street show).

Pictures from the street shows, ancient egypt and the lostworld.

Next, we returned to canopy flyers and lucky the flyers was re-opened. Our last ride was Elmo Sesame Street Space Chase. (Tip10: The ride suitable and enjoyable for kids).

Some scenery taken in USS. Wat a small world.

We passed by Madagscar, we ride on Beach Party-Go-Round due to short queuing. Kids sure love it. May choose the couple seat but must hurry cuz limited. Before went back, we managed to buy some souvenirs at Universal Singapore Store. We bought fridge magnet and some elmo.

AM: our excited and joyful appearances in the morning, after went through the entrance gate of USS. PM: the tired and exhausted faces after went out from the entrance. Despite fagged; we had enjoyable moments in USS.

We returned to Harbour Front by bus, due to long queue in monorail line. We almost missed the flight, fortunately the flight was delayed and we managed to aboard.
