Hello Santa, we spend a magical Christmas at USS (Universal Studios Singapore) last Sat.

The streets of New York and Hollywood are decked in festive colours. Characters are dressed in their Christmas best.

We look forward to the hourly snow at Hollywood and New York.

The night lights look especially enchanting.

Pretty illumination casted onto New York Library.

“Fairytale Remix” Gingerbread and Snowman are cute and brings out the festive mood.

Map and Itinerary. We head down to USS around 4pm, when we know the crowd will be smaller. During this festive period, USS rides will run until 9pm yes!

For first timers, we will recommend “Sesame Street Saves Christmas Show“.

For those with younger kids looking for “Character Meet & Greets”, go earlier or you will miss the photo opportunity. I am still waiting for that photo with Shrek and Fiona πŸ™‚

Even Canopy Flyer queue is less than 20 minutes!

Talking about rides, we manage to score a few firsts at USS this round. Whole family survived “Revenge of the Mummy”, but Mommy mention this is the one and only time haha πŸ™‚

Battlestar Galactica (Human) tested my nerve. I am amazed how they packed so much twists and dips on such a small footprint. I chicken out of Cylon after witnessing the upside down twists!

Fairytale Shrek 4D never fail to tickle our funny bones. Little porker and Pinocchio and we just love to be tortured by Lord Farquaad.

Highlight for us is “A Hollywood Christmas Gift Show”. Toy Soldiers, Madagascar penguins rock the stage, but the Minions are overwhelming favourites πŸ™‚ Banana!

Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore

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

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 πŸ™‚

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!

Ancient Egypt

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.
