Universal Studios Singapore!

A third weekend in Singapore meant that I had to find something else to do. I had thought of Universal Studios when first coming to Singapore but then forgot. After some local group mates in a project reminded me, I decided to check it out!

Universal Florida beats Singapore hands down (no Harry Potter, plus the Florida one is bigger), but it was still nice to check out the Singapore theme park. The park is broken down into several main parts:

  • New York/Hollywood
  • SciFi City – I swear the roller coasters in this one were the exact same as the new HP roller coasters in FL.
  • Jurassic Park The Lost World
  • Madagascar – different from FL
  • Far Far Away – also different from FL

Couple picts from the park:

I also visited Marina Bay Sands, and East Coast Park. Marina Bay Sands is the new 3 building hotel that is linked with a “cruise ship” at the very top. The hotel itself is very modern looking inside and the casino is similar to any casino in Vegas.

East Coast Park. Much nicer than Toronto's waterfront parks...

 

I am starting to get homesick. Hopefully that passes soon though.
