General Resort News - (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.
(5/2/17) It's been awhile since we've heard much from Universal Studios Singapore but Dejiki is back with a new update, showing off the park's new "Chocolate Adventure" themed event that focuses on food and includes the Chocolate Gardens walk-through attraction inside Soundstage 28. The new Chocolate Adventure event has replaced the park's previous attempts at Easter themed events.
(1/25/17) A quick congratulations goes out to Universal Studios Singapore this week after the park welcomed their 25th million visitor on Tuesday. Well done crew!!
(11/19/16) Dejiki is back with a new update from Universal Studios Singapore, who just scored a Guinness World Record at the park for their new "Universal Journey" walk-through attraction inside the park's Soundstage 28 for having "the largest light bulb display in an indoor space". Universal Journey, which uses 824,961 lights, is the highlight of the park's "Santa's All-Star Christmas 2016" celebration, and features an extensive set of light experiences, from Christmas lights to more cosmic light experiences. A fantastic set of photos of the experience have been posted to Dejiki that you simply must see.
(9/27/16) Something interesting is taking place with the Battlestar Galactica coaster at Universal Studios Singapore. Dejiki reports that the blue Cylon side of the ride is now slowly starting to be repainted an all grey color. Meanwhile the red Human side seems to be changing to a slighter darker shade of red as well.
In case you might be wondering if the grey is just a new primer coat, I asked about that as well and they said that before the grey paint appeared, they were recoated with a white primer coast as well, so the new grey color is the real deal. While it just might make the ride a little less photogenic, the colors do more accurately represent the two opposing sides however.
(6/28/16) We haven't heard much from Universal Studios Singapore lately, but Dejiki is back to help remedy that with a new photo update showing off the park's summer promotional event called SOAK OUT, described as a big water party / show that happens each day at the Hollywood Lagoon Stage.
2017 - 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.
