Universal Studios in Singapore

Unlocking Enchantment: Navigating the Wonders of Universal Studios in Singapore (2024)

One of the fun theme parks I visited was the Universal Studios in Singapore. The rides, entertainment and the attractions are so much fun and enjoyable. I spent an entire day exploring the theme park and museums during my four days in Singapore. The theme park also has a lot of attractions, restaurants, cafes, hotels and shops. One surely needs more than a day to explore the entire theme park. Two to three days is ideal for exploring the park and the island.

About Universal Studios in Singapore

Universal Studios in Singapore is Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios and Hollywood theme park. Located on Sentosa Island, the theme park has 28 rides and attractions. Spanned over 25 hectares, most of the rides in the theme park are original and adapted only for the park.

Even though Singapore can be visited throughout the year, the best time to visit is between July and September. I suggest staying in Singapore for at least four days so you can spend an entire day at Universal Studios. However, if you have two days, then here is the perfect 2-day itinerary for Singapore.

Things To Do at the Universal Studios Theme Park

Themed Zones

The park consists of seven themed zones surrounding a lagoon, and each of these themed zones is named after a movie or a television.

  • Hollywood: This is themed after Hollywood Boulevard of the 1970s and replicates the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • New York: This themed zone has replicas of famous New York landmarks.
  • Sci-Fi City: This themed zone is based on science fiction and what the cities and metropolises will look like in the future.

  • The Lost World: If you love dinosaurs, this is the zone for you. The themed zone has rides and attractions based on Jurassic Park and Water World.
  • Far Far Away: Based on The Kingdom of Far Far Away, the zone features Shrek rides.
  • Madagascar: Displaying a cargo ship and river, the zone features Madagascar.

S.E.A. Aquarium and Maritime Museum

The S.E.A. aquarium is home to more than 100,000 marine animals of over 1,000 species. I was amazed to see the number of fish in the aquarium, and it had every marine animal I could think of (except whales and great whites). The maritime museum has a massive collection of artefacts from Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and Kenya.

  • Entry fee: S$38 per adult and S$28 per child.
  • Timings: Every day, 10 AM to 5 PM.
  • The divers can dive at the S.E.A. aquarium and have different diving options.

Typhoon Theatre

The Typhoon Theatre at the Maritime Museum is a 360-degree multimedia theatre that takes visitors on board a 9th-century Chinese ship. The ship goes through many adventures, like a storm and sea roar, eventually ending up with a shipwreck.

  • Timings: 11 AM to 7 PM.

Wings of Time

Even though not part of Universal Studios, the Wings of Time is the best light and water show I have ever seen. Amazing show with laser, fire and water effects about Shahbaz’s friendship and courage. Shahbaz is a pre-historic bird who travels across beautiful landscapes with his friends Rachel and Felix. This is undoubtedly a must-do when you are on Sentosa Island. It is also an award-winning outdoor night show.

Update 18/3/2022: At the moment, the Wings of Time is suspended till further notice. Ensure to check their website for recent update.

  • Entry fee: S$18 per tourist and S$15 for Singapore residents.
  • Wings of Time commences at 7:40 PM and 8:40 PM every night and lasts 20 minutes.

Is Universal Studios in Singapore Safe for Solo Female Travellers?

The Universal Studios in Singapore is very safe for solo female travellers. I travelled to the theme park alone, and I did not have any issues. The park is constantly monitored, and everyone is just there to have fun. However, be careful of your belongings, especially at night.

Closing Notes

Universal Studios is undoubtedly one of a kind and is fantastic with friends and groups. Even though I visited the theme park alone, I still think that more the people, merrier it is. And I loved the theme park. I highly recommend adding it to your list when you are in Singapore.
