Take a photo tour of Universal Studios Singapore

December 9, 2010, 10:33 AM · Thanks to Theme Park Insider reader Daniel Smith for submitting these photos of Universal Studios Singapore:

Battlestar Galactica coasters
The twin Battlestar Galactica roller coasters, reported to re-open next year. You can see how tight this park is, as that's the obelisk for the Mummy ride immediately to the left.

December 9, 2010 at 11:42 AM · Incredible. If it weren't for the fact that I prefer not to travel to most Asian countries, I'd probably go.
December 9, 2010 at 11:51 AM · Notice the ceramic, non-disposable food plates. Very cool. Smart. Shameful how parks in Orlando use plastic plates.
December 9, 2010 at 11:58 AM · Fantastic Pictures….
December 9, 2010 at 4:59 PM · Beautiful park. The attention to detail is magnificent. The hydroelectric loading station of Jurassic Park is the most convincing loading platform I've ever seen.
December 9, 2010 at 9:40 PM · Great pictures! Thanks for posting.

Hopefully someone can post pictures of the Hollywood, New York themed areas along with how Transformers is shaping up over there.

But if I ignore that the Humans are fighting the Cylons "in or very near Egypt,LOL" it looks awesome and seems beautiful. The Madagascar boat looks amazing and the Battlestar Gallactica "previously mentioned" looks like a lot of fun. I like it a lot!

Now all they have to do is build a couple more parks or attractions to merit a visit. Just one isn't enough for me to travel to Singapore from the Caribbean. I mean Florida is 3 hours away by plane, cheaper, and so many more parks to see.

Thanks Robert for the great pics! Could you elaborate on the Casa del Wild plate? Again thanks!


December 10, 2010 at 1:03 AM · Daniel (who took these pictures) posted a review of his meal on the Casa del Wild listing page.
December 10, 2010 at 7:58 AM · Oh, I didn't see that... Thanks Robert. Thanks to Daniel too for the great pics and the review. I'll check it out.


December 10, 2010 at 11:00 AM · Id love to see a little bit Asia someday. Makes no sense just for the parks of course. If it were just for the parks, the best thing would probably be just to get plane to Orlando and stay there for 3 weeks even for me in Europe.

Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Tokio, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shangai, all look interesthing, without considering the theme parks.

December 10, 2010 at 3:52 PM · Judging from his review, the theme park food outside of the States is just as bad.
December 10, 2010 at 5:03 PM · Wow, I didn't expect to get on the flume! :P I hope you all enjoyed the photos. I also have some of New York, Hollywood and Sci-Fi City (Robert, please let me know if you'd like me to upload them, and where). I've just arrived for a concert tour in Europe so a bit jetlagged, but I promise I will write a park review over the next few days. In the meantime, I've written a short review of each ride (including wait times and tips!) on the Universal Studios Singapore page. Next stop, Gardaland in Italy! (I hope!). Dan.
December 10, 2010 at 10:18 PM · My plan to visit this park one day is to take a trip to Southeast Asia for Hong Kong Disneyland and Universal Studios Singapore. That will be of course after I visit Disneyland Paris.
