    My wife and I spent a fun day in December 2023 at Universal Studios Singapore. I purchased the special festive tickets ahead of our holiday which included a regular day ticket, meal deal and S$5 retail voucher. We travelled there via the Cable Car from Harbourfront (where our cruise ship was docked) although we realised after the journey that it wasn't the easiest way to get to Universal Studios and certainly wasn't the cheapest travel option. Recommended route would be the MRT or walking via the boardwalk.

    There are six zones in the park and each one houses a small handful of rides and attractions...there are six roller coasters in total (which was my main reason for visiting) and the biggest was Battlestar Galactica (which is actually two separate roller coasters that interact with each other - Human and Cyclon). Cyclon is an intense inverted coaster with five inversions, and Human is a conventional roller coaster and more family-friendly, although both tracks feature a launched lifthill which gives a great punch to the start of the ride).

    The other 'big' roller coaster is Revenge of the Mummy - an enclosed coaster which features three launches and a dark ride section. Rode this a couple of times as the queue was short. The remaining coasters are more family friendly...Canopy Flyer and Puss in Boots are both suspended coasters that hang under the track and Enchanted Airways is a fun compact steel family coaster. As well as the roller coasters, I must mention the excellent Transformers The Ride 3D attraction and the fun family friendly Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase ride. We also enjoyed the Shrek 4D theatre, which was the same as one we had done elsewhere but a lot of laughs.

    It plans to think ahead in terms of ride order, as we found the big rides and roller coasters were quiet first thing (short queues between 5 and 20 minutes) and also later in the day the queues were short, but in contrast, an hour after park opening most of the big rides had queues of around an hour or so. We also visited on a Thursday which was reasonably quiet compared to peak days and weekends.

    Some of the rides had single rider queues (SRQ) to ensure the trains went out without empty seats although on Canopy Flyer the SRQ was roped off and the staff told me it was closed so I gave up attempting to ride it again as the queue was 50 minutes. The park also do not permit any on-ride photography on the roller coasters, even with secured GoPro cameras on official harnesses. This isn't a safety issue and secured GoPro cameras are permitted at many parks around the works such as Busch Gardens and SeaWorld parks. The Battlestar Galactica coaster also has x-ray machines at the entrance and staff using paddles to check you have no cameras in your pockets, which is totally understandable for loose articles but annoying when the GoPro cameras are secured and totally safe.

    Overall we had a great day, rode all the attractions and roller coasters that we wanted to ride, and enjoyed our festive meal deal lunch. The park is flat and easy to navigate, has plenty of shady areas, although not a massive number of places to sit down near the coasters. The theming is top quality as you would expect from Universal. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful and quiet place. I have enjoyed every second of it. Large number of species and 3 huge aquariums not counting hundreds of small ones. I could spend hours sitting in front of the biggest one. Amazing 😍

    The Sentosa Boardwalk is a long covered bridge/walkway from Singapore's Vivo Center to Sentosa Island. It takes approximately 15 minutes to traverse the bridge, so it is a long bridge. For those who do not want to walk across, there is a monorail tram that also crosses the waterway from Vivo Center to several different stops on Sentosa Island.

    Sentosa is a fun place to visit - there is the colorful Resorts World area, Universal Studios, Beach boardwalk, nice beaches, many nice Restaurants, aerial tramway, shops - lots of things to see and do.

    Madame Tussauds hosts wax statues of many world personalities ranging from politicians, sport stars, Hollywood and Bollywood actors etc. People who have not been to a wax museum will definitely enjoy the experience, but people who have seen the main Madame Tussauds Museum in London will be highly disappointed.

    I would recommend an hour to and hour and a half here while visiting Sentosa Island.

    Our family of four wanted to visit the water park on Sunday 7 January 2024. It was steadily raining in the morning so we checked the web to see if had a live status as we didn't want to travel there to find it was not fully operating. There was no information on the status through the internet. We decided to gear up and caught the MRT to Vivocity where it was still raining and didn't look like any end in site. Decided to recon the site by myself as we didn't want to all travel to Santosa and find the rides were closed. I arrived at the ticket office and was told all rides operating and they would only close if there was lightning so I signaled the rest of the family to come over. The best thing about the day was there was virtually no queues due to the rain. The longest we had to wait for a ride was about 5-10 minutes. This allowed us to do a circuit of the park and enjoy each ride twice. Of course, it wasn't an ideal day due to the rain but we figured it's a water park so we're going to be wet anyway. Rented the large locker which worked for our family. The pebble crete is tough on the feet so either put up with it or wear water footwear. My only complaint is I normally wear glasses so when swimming have prescription water goggles which I was not allowed to wear on the rides so was near blind navigating up the stair-cases (is that not also a safety risk?) and on the rides. I get you shouldn't have glasses on the rides but think it is overly cautious to not allow goggles which are tight fitted around the head.

    The beach is clean and peaceful with lifeguards looking over so you feel safe.

    It is a very nice and relaxing place to hang out and gather with friends and family.

    There are sufficient toilets and bathing facilities and you go there to swim, sun bath, picnic or play volley ball.

    The sand is soft and nice but it would be good to bring along a picnic mat.

    There are some restaurants along the beach for you to dine or pubs for drinks.

    The sunset here is something you wouldn’t want to miss so plan your day accordingly.

    Very fun!

    Unique idea and executed wonderfully.

    The flights were very short however, and it had a hefty price to do another flight (SGD$50.00).

    Enjoyable nevertheless! 👍

    All beaches are not natural but this one felt natural. The water was warm and lots of seaweed but the sand was soft! Dogs are everywhere which is really nice to see. Kid friendly! There is a little island that people were swimming to! The cargo ships are visible but they are everywhere. On a clear day they say you can see Batam!
