General Resort News - (3/13/18) From now through April 29, Universal Studios Singapore is holding a "TrollsTopia" special celebration event, with special Trolls themed photo areas, facepaint booths, Troll wigs and more. Follow the link to get all the official details.
(6/10/17) A new trip report from Universal Studios Singapore has been posted by Dejiki this week showing off the latest developments for the park. This includes the addition of new Mummy merchandise themed to the new film. They also reported that the Chocolate Adventure temporary attraction that was supposed to have closed down on April 28th has seen the run extended twice already... first through to May 28 and then again to keep it open through to June 11. Apparently it has become very popular and is likely to return in some form next year, though I think the time is up for this year, as they will need the space in Soundstage 28 for Halloween Horror Nights very soon.
2018 - Halloween Horror Nights - (4/4/18) Universal dropped the bomb a few hours ago by making their first company wide announcement for the first maze to be featured at the 2018 Halloween Horror Nights event... and there was much rejoicing across the internet. If you haven't already read in our tweet or Facebook post earlier, you will be able to venture into The Upside-Down this fall as a new awesome maze themed to the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things, will be brought to life at Universal Orlando, Hollywood and Singapore parks for HHN.
Universal bought the world to life in front of our eyes already in the form of a custom teaser trailer that shows off the entrance to the theme park, as seen from inside The Upside-Down. According to the final details, this maze will stick to the story told in Season 1, allowing you to venture into the Mirkwood and then on into the Hawkins National Laboratory... and you know things just go horribly wrong from there, because the Demogorgon is never far. Just take a look at the awesome preview poster art they made as well featuring the boys on their bikes in front of the park's iconic entrance portal... or at least The Upside-Down version. I can't wait for this one.
2018 - Nothing is known to be added this year...
???? - New Attraction - Rumor Only - (6/10/17) It's been a few years now since we've seen a new major attraction added to Universal Studios Singapore, so many are wondering about what might be next? Would you believe that Harry Potter may be under consideration? I'm hearing that it is being discussed, though to build a Wizarding World of Harry Potter would take up a considerable amount of space, and something in this small park would have to go to make way.
So where would it go? If they opt to move ahead with it, I'm hearing that the land of Far Far Away would be removed to make way for Hogwarts Castle. It currently takes up a large section of the park but offers little in the way of major attractions, featuring only a kiddie coaster, the Magic Potion Spin kiddie wheel, a couple of small theater shows (Donkey Live & Shrek 4D). It is interesting that it does also feature the park's newest attraction, Puss in Boots' Giant Journey, but that could be given a Potter themed makeover perhaps, along with converting the Enchanted Airways kiddie coaster into another Flight of the Hippogriff coaster.
So will it happen? Time will tell, though with the way that Comcast's ownership of NBC/Universal has been going, there may first need to be some business dealings taken care of first to allow them to possibly take over control of the theme park, as the Singapore park is the only one now not fully owned by the company at this time. If that happens to pass, then I would think Potter's arrival would almost be a sure thing to happen, because the addition of Harry Potter always comes with huge profits soon following.
