Tips for you
It's better to grab the online tickets as you are walking through, you should take note or photos of the times the characters come out to take photos (usually in the main walkway as you enter) - usually as part of the Walk of Fame in Hollywood Boulevard, its cheaper if you by for all the theme parks.Ticket and Pricing
definitely have to try the mummy's revenge roller coaster ride!!!
Shrek 4D Adventure is a must-go for all families. A 3D adventure with 4D effects! Absolute fun but do return your Ogre-Vision glasses after the show!
Watch the Shrek 4D show and take the 5th middle row for best appreciation
Ride the Mummy's revenge.
Operating hours changed since may 1st. 1000 to 1900 hours.
The rides are awesome. Tried the Transformers ride. Makes you feel like you're in the movie. Was a bit dissapointed when I realised one of their popular ride (battlestar gallactica) is closed indefinitely.
Spent the entire day here with family. Loved all the rides especially The Mummy & Shrek. Recommend goin during xmas time.
Had been to USS on a weekday. Great place for kids and adults alike. My 8 year daughter enjoyed Madagascar , Jurassic park , shrek , puss in the boots and the transformers ride. The transformer rides were the best of all ( not to be missed). advise going there on a weekday to avoid the rush. There is no need to but the express tickets as if you are on time when it opens at 1000 am you will complete all the rides without any problem. there are street shows and other shows - so don't forget to get a copy of the show timings at the entrance and plan accordingly. The transformers and Jurrasic park rides were the most crowded- hence try getting on these crowd favourite rides after 5pm and it will be all empty!!!! (park closes at 7pm i guess)
I really like Universal Studios Singapore. There is really awesome roller coasters. Also it's not so big and u can look whole Universal Studios. :)
Easy access via the train system, and a well maintained park. Well worth the money and time. I recommend pre-purchasing tickets online to avoid the wait when arriving.
