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.
Halloween Horror Nights 7 - (9/13/17) Dejiki is back with a sneak peek inside Halloween Horror Nights 7 taking place at Universal Studios Singapore, including a ton of new pictures of characters making preview appearances and decorations that are up all around the park for the scare zones and mazes. Check it out! HHN takes place on select nights from Sept. 29 through Oct 29, 2017.
(8/11/17) Universal Studios Singapore has announced that Halloween Horror Nights 7 will run from Sept. 29th through to Oct. 29th this year, and will be themed after a modern version of the 7 Deadly Sins: Cruelty, Deception, Malice, Manipulation, Narcissism, Perversion and Obsession. There will be a total of five haunts, two scare zones and two live shows.
The first haunt to be announced is Death Mall, an abandoned decaying shopping mall that is apparently haunted by some seriously evil ghosts. The other four mazes will be announced on the website each Friday to follow starting on August 18, 25, Sept. 1 and 8th.
Details about the live shows and two scare zones are also still waiting to be revealed sometime in the future. Fortunately Dejiki is on the ball and has posted their own list of haunts and attractions which surprisingly features an entire rundown of all original themes and nothing at all from Hollywood films. According to his report the other haunts will be: Make The Cut (with a deadly Idol's style reality show theme), TERRORcotta Empress (Escape the palace of the dragon lady and her army of TERRORcotta soldiers), Inside The Mind (into the mind of pure evil...) and HEX (into the jungle world of dark magic and curses, but watch out for the Midnight Man). The two scare zones are said to be Pilgrimage of Sin and Happy Horror Days. Live shows: Labroatorium (witness the Black Death plague and see how doctors tried to treat it) and Slice of Life Tour (horror musical).
The official website says nothing yet, but one more unique attraction was announced: Zombie Lasertag. The experience will be an upcharge attraction (S$38) as you battle the flesh hungry undead with special laser guns that have been calibrated to scramble and fry zombie brainwave activity. In an odd twist, they also mention that the guests will wear special headbands able to detect "concentration levels" in order to help you unlock clues during your quest for survival.
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.
