Universal Studios Singapore – 2012

Before leaving Singapore, i thought i would go around and see the last one place I hadn’t yet visited.  So off we went to the Universal Studios during the Chinese New Year weekend.  Contrary to what i feared, it was an overcast sky the whole day and had a cool breeze, so walking around wasn’t a chore.

Seriously, if you are not a fan of roller coasters, the place doesnt really justify the high entrance fees (SG$74 per head) it demands.  Not to mention each of the eating joints are nothing but rip-offs with high prices.  If you can, pack some food from home as the prices of eatables are sure to drive your hunger away.

As for the souvenirs, the lesser said the better.  Prices are again out of this world.  No wonder i hardly saw anyone buying anything.  For kids though, there are enough attractions and stuff to keep them occupied.

Final word: Avoid this overpriced hyped up place unless you are dragged by the scruff of your neck by friends and family.   The Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park and the Science Park are still the best attractions in the country.
