Universal Studio Outing with my Friends & Families - 09 Oct 2010

My friends and I had plan for this outing almost a month back and I have been waiting for it since. It was a sunny fine day to begin with. As planned, we arrived 10am at Vivo City for our breakfast and as usual, Mr Wu was late for an hour. 

We finish our breakfast at around 11am and Mr Wu arrived at the same timing. Without further a do, we head to sentosa via the monorail which cost our us $3 per trip(can use Ezlink card too). 
We were greeted by this big Universal statue, and took a group photo.

Next, we proceed into to Universal Studio and you know what? I was like "Wow, the place was simply so big and fun.." and the place was full of tourist.. I took a few photos before proceeding to the next station.

 We skipped Madagascar as that wasn't much things to play and see. So we proceed to the Far Far Away, where you can watch the Shrek 4-D Adventure, play the Enchanted Airways and Magic Potion Shop. My friends took the Enchanted Airways ride which was less then 5mins ride and say that it was no kick. Haha, who knows? But well, Shrek 4-D Adventure movie is definitely a must watch movie, the sprinkling of water, shaking and rocking of the chair, and the wind effects was definitely fun and thrill. Be warned "Not suitable for pregnant lady, the elderly and the weak heart.." but, there is some seats available catered specially for this group of people. 

After the Far Far Away, next we came to the Lost World: Jurassic Park. At here, we have the main attractions of the Canopy Flyer ride, the Dino-Soarin ride for the children, and the Water World. We were kind of excited with the canopy flyer ride but there was a technical fault breakdown when we were at there. So we head on the the "live" Water World show where you can experience the witness death-defying stunts, awesome explosions and thrills at this sensational "live" show. But be warned, be prepared to get wet sitting in the front blue and green section. The show ended around 3.30pm and we had a lunch break at the Dino-Cafe before we can carry on.

 Time passes so fast, we finished our lunch at around 4.30pm and proceed to our next destination, the Ancient Egypt. At here, we have the Revenge of the Mummy where you can experience into the total darkness of this indoor roller coaster as you face warriors mummies on a psychological thrill ride. And then the Treasure Hunters ride where the children can drive their own desert jeep through and abandoned Egyptian excavation site. 

Next on the agenda, we have the Sci-Fi City. At here, we have the Battlestar Galactica Cylon(Blue track) and the Human(Red track). But because of some safety issue, this 2 tracks were closed down for the time being. But they do still have 1 more rider available, which is the Accelerator where you can test your inter-galactic stamina on this whirling twirling attraction. 

 So while waiting for my friends to finish the Accelerator ride. I roamed around and chanced upon this beautiful old New York back alley scene.

And last but not least, the last attraction of this place is the New York. There is mainly 2 attractions here, the Lights, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg where you will get blown away by the filmmakers incredible special effects as an empty stage becomes the setting for a major hurricane about to hit New York City - right before your very eyes. And Stage 28, where a state-of-the-art sound stage motion picture and television production. 

I simply just love this last attractions as you can see the streets of the old New York City street. 

The day ended with a 5mins fireworks which I managed to captured 2 not so bad shots.
