Finally, I manage to get a locum cover for Chinese New Year 2012. It was the best time to cross the causeway without any traffic. Thus, I decided to bring my family for a short entertainment across the causeway on the first day of CNY.
For those who can’t remember, Universal Studio was supposed to be in Nusajaya, Malaysia initially. Way back in the year 2000, Universal studio was already in talks with Malaysian authority to build a theme park in Nusajaya. I personally saw the MBJB master plan in the year 2000. However, some how it did not get throu’ and I am not sure why. We have a bigger and cheaper land than Singapore. I feel it must be the bureaucracy, rules and regulation that put them off. Finally we had to turn to Legoland which will open its door in June 2012 in Nusajaya.
Unfortunately, it was Singapore who benefitted. Surprisingly, Universal Studio Singapore belongs to Genting Berhad which is a Malaysian company!! How ironic!
The best ride was this:
I must say it lives up to its name as the world’s first Transformers ride. A virtual 3D action where you feel like you are in the movie! I would recommend this to anyone who visit Universal Studio Singapore.
The rest of the rides were awesome as well. The cyclone roller coaster was really scary. Lucky I do not have any cardiac disease yet. Felt like I was flying 14 storeys high
It was exhausting I must say. I spend almost the whole day from 10am to 7.30pm walking and taking rides with my kids/wife etc.
Despite that, I could not finish all the attractions in the park. The Mummy indoor roller coaster with visual effects was also excellent.
After all these tiring rides, the best part was when I could drive back to my house in JB in less than an hour !! NO JAM at all…………………………….
Looking forward for another visit in a year’s time.
