Battlestar Galactica are launched, dueling Vekoma coasters: "Human," a sit-down coaster, and "Cylon," an inverted. The ride closed at the end of July 2013 "for review" and has remained closed since. When the ride returns Wednesday, it will feature new trains that seat two across, rather than the four-seat rows on the previous trains.
This has been the second extended closure for the ride. Battlestar Galactica opened with the park in early 2010, only to close a week later due to what was later revealed to be cracks in the seat-post supports on the Human side. The ride remained closed for 11 months before reopening with reinforced seats on both sides.
When it was open, Battlestar Galactica provided one of the highlights on a visit to Universal Studios Singapore. Offering wonderful views of the park, not to mention multiple fly-bys with the dueling train on the other track, Battlestar Galactica offered nonstop action that got your adrenaline pumping. All that's changed on the coaster now is the new trains. The tracks remain the same.
Here's a preview video of the newly refurbished ride, from Resorts World Sentosa, the integrated resort on Sentosa Island that is home to Universal Studios Singapore.
