From now till 04Jan 2015, you can celebrate Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) with snow falling everyday, every hour. Ok, not real snow but still WoW!
Catch the “snow” at three different zones (Hollywood, New York and Sci-Fi).
Before we proceed, get familiar with the Seven Worlds orientation, and plan your own itinerary. Try to plan the attractions and activities close by, so that you do not need to constantly rush from one corner to another. (research USS schedules at this link)
Hollywood, New York and Sci-Fi City
Video : Snowy Christmas celebration at USS
Pretty Day and Night. USS has been decked up in glittery accessories.
Eager revelers could not wait to soak in the festive atmosphere.
On the main stage at New York, Dancing lights play on the building facade and Christmas Tree. Toy soldiers and Sesame Street will perform on the same stage too.
Do remember to say Ho Ho Ho to Uncle Santa Claus, he appears every hour to pose with visitors
Snow falling around Bumble Bee and Evac!
On a side note, always make Transformers 3D ride your first ride, queues of up to 1 hour is very common!
Sesame Street is all around us, and they never fail to raise the Festive mood up a notch!
Merry Christmas Ernie, Bert and Grover! As usual, Elmo always got the longest queue.
Do not miss award-winning “Sesame Street Saves Christmas” musical at Pantages, four shows daily for you to sing along. Besides the entertaining musical, the couch and aircon offers tired parents a 5min power nap well deserved rest.
Watch how Hollywood’s special effects allow a Cat 5 Hurricane to tear down a warehouse, specially hosted by Steven Spielberg.
The Lost World
We went splashing with Rapids Adventure. Do not bring raincoat along, as getting wet is part of the Fun.
Canopy Flyer, it feels so GOOD to dangle your feet in the sky!
So carefree, soaring just like a bird.
More birds and flight, smaller kids and grandparents can tame a Pteranodon.
Water World, get front row seat for a WET experience like no other!
(just pack additional underwear)
Far Far Away
Shrek’s Castle and Mud house. Even the loo is decorated for Christmas :p
Puss in Boot (upcoming ride with giant beanstalk!) and Enchanted Airways (roller coaster).
Is Boon Xin adorable or not? She likes to stick out her tongue in all the photos!
Madagascar. Move it! Move it!
Smaller kids might love to play “Treasure Hunters” on the slow jeep.
.. the bold ones can step inside the temple and duel with “Revenge of the Mummy”.
Faster, darker, and reverse gear too!
Maybe it is too dark and Daddy cannot see anything, he thought Legoland’s Dragon is more scary.

The characters will pop up at different intervals to greet and meet. If you are visiting on a weekend (and selected Holidays), do not miss the once-a-day Dream Parade. Everyone from USS’s Seven Zones will come out on their floats to say Hello! (click for our previous Parade)
Universal Studios Singapore offers tons of opportunity for family photos.
Can we bring these huge prezzies home?
We spent 11 hours to soak in Festive Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore, tiring but definitely memorable. Thank you RWS for the invitation
** Tips for first time visitors
- Plan your itinerary beforehand, save time and avoid disappointment, some attractions need you to be seated 15 minutes beforehand.
- ticket details online at RWS website
- if budget allows, grab Express Tickets to avoid the queues (weekend crowd is crazy!)
- bring spare clothes (in case you like Wet activities in Lost World)
- slap on suntan lotion and drink lots of water
- food portion is generally bigger, most meal cost $8 and above
Christmas is near, and Boon Kang wish to bring a smiling Santa Spongebob home
From the green background to the snow flakes, and Spongebob’s colourful costume, it took kids 3 hours to complete their masterpiece. Boon Kang and Boon Xin really put in a lot of effort into their Heart Studio session.
Boon Xin chose the sneaky Randall, we always know her choice is not quite mainstream (Daddy had secretly hope she will draw Boo haha).
As long as she is happy, we are happy
To see them start their painting from the first stroke to completion, parents will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. Boon Kang and Boon Xin were so eager to show off their artwork to Mummy
Do pop by our previous session with Heart Studio at this link (Pokemon!). We can always hear a lot laughter and chit chats in the classrooms, kids really love the environment.
Thank you for the Fun invite, Heart Studio!
