Universal Studios Singapore to begin soft opening

Published: February 11, 2010 at 9:41 PM

Just got the news today that Universal Studios Singapore will begin public previews on Feb. 14.

The park will be open between 5pm-9pm Feb. 14 through Feb. 21. Admission will be only S$10 (That's 10 Singapore dollars, or about US$7.) But you'll get a dining voucher for the same amount, so it works out to being a free preview.

Universal Studios Singapore is part of the larger Resorts World Sentosa development, which also is debuting Singapore's first casino at the same time.

A casino and a theme park within walking distance of each other? Somebody, get me a ticket to Singapore!

Update [Feb. 12]: The tickets to all dates are now sold out.

Yet another awesome looking park that I will probably never get a chance to visit. *sniff sniff*

Actually, I live in Singapore right now until June 2010.

The sneak preview that will be held this Sunday in Singapore is very popular. Today alone, all preview tickets have been reportedly 50% sold out (Sunday to Tuesday). So if I want to visit the park, I can only do that next Wednesday to Saturday.

All rides and shows won't be operating until early March.

Technically, it is akin to a free preview. So in a way , it is not exactly a bad notion to be among the first to step into the Theme Park.
Get to see what you like and the next time around , manoeuvring becomes easier, provided of course the preview do not get crowded.

This is one of those parks that I really wish was in the US. It has so many awesome and unique looking attractions. It's like the best of everything at both parks at Universal Orlando mixed together with some new unique one of a kind to Universal rides or atleast take on rides. I'd really like to see some footage of this place. The Battlestar Galactica coasters look awesome (and really nice to not be built by B & M) and the Jurassica Park rapids looks pretty interesting too. Then there is the Madagascar ride that I am really interested in seeing more about. Would like to see more about the Shrek land too. Both of those lands I wish I could put in one of thier parks here in the US. Looks great. I hope they use some of the successful ideas from that park in some of way in the US in the near future!

Y'know, if I've only got 4 hours to check everything out, I'm not sure how much eating I'd be doing.
