Universal Studios Singapore
We have been to Universal Studios twice on our trips to Singapore. The first time, the girls were 6 and already little thrill seekers and then again 2 years ago when they went on every single ride. Always a lot of fun for the big kids as well as the small.
Universal Studios is on Sentosa Island which can be accessed by taxi, bus, MRT or by the walkway. We find the easiest way is by MRT as follows:
- Take North-East line or Circle line to HarbourFront station.
- Take Exit E to VivoCity and proceed to level 3 to board the Sentosa Express. You will need to buy a ticket which includes the entry onto Sentosa.
- Alight 1 stop later at Waterfront station.
Opens at 10am but check the times on their website.

There are also characters roaming around that you can have your photo taken with as well as vintage cars. The two shows are great – Lights, Camera, Action is a special effects stage showing a hurricane tearing through New York – and Waterworld is a live water stunt show.
- Take sun protection and hats, it can be very hot.
- Get there as soon as it opens and head to the big thrill rides first (the queues are less first thing). If you have an Express Pass, head to the rides that aren’t included.
- Your ticket is valid all day but make sure you get your hand stamped on the way out.
- Avoid School Holidays if you can (it will be very busy). Also, weekdays are a lot quieter than weekends.
- Bring water bottles (they can be refilled in the park).
- Book tickets online before you go. Sometimes they are cheaper and it saves you lining up at the ticket booth.
- Download a copy of the map.
- Work out what rides you want to go on and make a plan of attack 🙂
- If you don’t like getting wet, bring a poncho or buy one from the vending machine inside the park.
- Have FUN.
