Universal Studio Singapore Part 1 with Sentosa Broadwalk

So this will be a very long one, and tis is only part 1 of the trip~ take a deep breath.... lets get started!

So this is the highlighted point of the Singapore trip this time, is Universal Studio Singapore!! This is my 3rd visit to Singapore but this is my first time to go to USS. So excited!! Last year I skipped USS coz I just went to Sunway Lagoon, so this time I wont skip it anymore! 
As the original price for the entrance ticket is too expensive and we were on a tight budget trip, we got the cheaper ticket at $60 ( original price $74) for adult from Skyline Travel in Chinatown, which include a $10 food coupon and a $5 shopping coupon. Really useful to us coz we can enjoy a fabulous lunch in USS!!

There are 4 ways to get to Sentosa from Singapore, and we chose the cheapest one:
  1. By 2-way Jewel Cable Car~~ $26 include island admission. 
  2. By Sentosa Express from Vivo City  $4 per entry
  3. By normal car $6 per entry
  4. By foot from Sentosa Broadwalk~ $1 for island admission via Ez-link
And so we chose the Sentosa Broadwalk haha. Easy and cheaper

Show off my solo photo first with the Universal Studio Singapore Earth logo!! and a bottle of coke which costed my for $3 

This is how the broadwalk look like. the sea water was peaceful and blue~ it took around a 10-15 minutes walk and it is very convenient in fact, y I say so?

Looking at the sea from the Broadwalk~ enjoying the sea breeze to relax my mind after a stressful exam a week before. Thanks GOD everything is overr. 

Look of the waterfront promenade from the broadwalk. Do you see where is the cable car?? hehe

This is the reason y I said the broadwalk is convenient!! The two-way canopy covered travellators~ So it took us about 1km ( or a 10-15 minutes walk ) to reach to the entrance of Sentosa island. Use the Ez-link card for a quick access, which just $1 for island admission. And we save money again ^^V

And here we reached the Sentosa island!! So happy and excited! Cant wait to have a challenge with all the thrilling games in the USS. The signboard on the island is very clear so we walked to the USS by just follow the instruction. This is the reason why I like to walk in Singapore, everything is well-guided. 

Group photo together with the USS LOGO!! since we bought tickets adi so we just skipped the queue. But somethings sounds wrong, although it was weekday ( we went there on Tuesday), there was a big crowd everywhere!! We reached there around 11 in the morning, which was an hour late than the original plan. 

TIPS::  So how to plan the move in the USS??  basically there is 7 zones in the USS, the entrance part will be the New York zone where we can enjoyed a lot of show. ( clockwise) is Madagascar, Far Far Away Land, The Lost World, Ancient Eypt, Sci-Fi city, and Hollywood. According to the sharing from some bloggers, the anti-clockwise move is the better suggestion since those very challenging rides such as transformer and revenge of mummy are more on the right side. No point to come to USS if we don play these haha. 

But now got a bit problem, plan changed. We directly went to The Lost World. Blame us for cant wake up earlier in the morning ><

The popcorn car in the Hollywood zone. So cute!!

A glance of the Hollywood Zone. 
Does it look like the real Hollywood?? I dunno, havent been there yet haha. 

Avoid from the crowd, we walked in the clockwise direction. The next zone that we entered:: 

Does this look familiar??? Ya this is one of the scene in Madagascar 1 !! where King Julien and the gang had their meeting on how to welcome Alex and the gang to scare away the fossa~ 
Too bright?? OK there is a skeleton hanging on the tree, spot my fingers haha

A photo session with Marty, Alex, Gloria and Melman!! Im a super fans of Madagascar LOL haha. Love this movie soooo much and I was so excited in the Madagascar zone haha. 

Took a picture with Madagascar: A Crate Adventure. 
The queue was crazy as long as 40 minutes in the afternoon so we decided to skip this river boat ride. But in the evening when we came back from Siloso Beach, the queue just 5 mins for waiting. So without second thought we just bump into the queue haha. 

TIPS:: some games, we can leave it behind as the crowd will focus more on the street show in the evening and some of them will be so exhausted in the morning so less crowd in the evening la haha. 

Say HI with Marty with his relaxing hut on the beach of Madagascar when they had the first quarrel with Alex. Know this story if you are a Madagascar fans!

Then we move to the Far Far Away land, which Shrek is the main character of this zone. 

The castle was so impressive. Shrek 4D adventure is at here, but due to the tight schedule we skipped the show. Since the review of the Shrek 4D is ::
suitable for kids.........

I took this picture during sunset and some of my frens thought that I actually travelled to Europe! Neh I wish I was in Europe too, but someone please sponsor me money haha. 

We tried out the Enchanted Airways in the evening, which they wrote there as " JUNIOR ROLLER COASTER". but seriously this roller coaster is aint JUNIOR. maybe yes if compare to the Revenge of Mummy,  still I scream like hell. And most of the time I screamed:: WTH this is not JUNIOR Roller Coaster!!

Took some sampat pictures with the decoration outside. Sorry guys, I am not a fans of Shrek so I could not recognise what weapons in which storyline was this haha. 

But I spotted a cute minion bottle on the stall in USS. this bottle is not cheap LOL. 

Took photo with the.... mascot??? coz we missed out the turn to grab a photo with Shrek. grrrr!!!
and I noticed Im the one with the most awkward pose in the photo =..=

Next stop: 

One thing very sayang in Jurassic Park was we missed out both the water show. First time we were stucked in the long queue in Revenge of Mummy, the second time we went out for Skyline Luge becoz we scared of raining in the evening. Aiks >< nvm, I will be back haha
With the scary Dinosaur!! 
They have a food court in the jurassic park and the price is more cheaper compared to other zones. 

The actual first game that we played in the park was actually this>> The Canopy Flyer. Our legs were hanging while riding the roller coaster. First time!! Yeah this was my first time to have such an experience. 
They prepared a corner for us to put our bags and shoes~ so no worries

But we spent about 45 minutes queuing up for this games. Coz we don have enough budget to buy the express pass and they did not have single rider lane for this game. 
Conclusion? MUST TRY
this game is so fantastic. Imaging our legs were hanging in the air and swinging all around at a high speed, accompanied by our crazy screaming. It was so exciting enough during the ascending, my heart was pumping so fast that I actually got a palpitation for that. haha

Without wasting our time, we went to the next ride:
Jurassic Rapid Adventure

We memang wanted to get ourselves wet in this game so we did not buy any raincoat for this. And the raincoat costed $4 per piece, so expensive man. Can get it from the machine or the stall outside. But don worry, unless you were as unlucky as us during the second ride, most of them did not GET WET AT ALL in fact. Yes, we took 1 ride in the morning ( in a long queue) and another ride in the evening. 

This thrilling river raft ride is one of the biggest attraction in the park. Rather than get wet, most of us got soaked, especially those who were not on slippers. Still, we enjoyed it to the maximum. And we can link the storyline during the ride too haha. We got into a tunnel at the end of the ride, lifted up to a high spot and splashed down into the river again haha. And that was the part we got wet. During the ride, maybe becoz of the fast current the raft was spinning quite fast until I almost puke. 

This is how the raft look like. Each raft can accommodate up to 9 ppl~ single rider lane is provided, so be smart if meet with a long queue. Beware that the floor was quite slippery~ 

And they were ready to go to explore in the Jurassic River!!
Photography is not allowed during the ride for safety precaution, so I din take any pictures during the ride and I was so dizzy that time due to the spinning. Gosh. 
But, we enjoyed to get wet during the ride muahaha. 

So here is the end of the story for part 1, such a lengthy one. Will write more on part 2 includes some tips to have fun in the park hehe. More thrilling rides are waiting!! Good night ^^
