Universal Studios Singapore
country: Singapore, Southeast Asia

The newest addition to the Universal Studios theme park family in Singapore is definitely the little brother of the group, but despite its small size it is cleverly arranged with some excellent Universal attraction classics and a couple of novelties.
The park opened in March 2010 with three major rides:
'Revenge of the Mummy' - an Egyptian-themed dark ride/indoor roller coaster very similar to the same-named ride in Universal Studios Florida that is...

Equarius Water Park
country: Singapore, Southeast Asia

Equarius Water Park is a development within Resorts World Sentosa close to Universal Studios Singapore. I love the idea of waterslides meandering through untouched trees in a real jungle. It is set to open in 2010 or 2011. At the time of my last visit no visible construction was taking place yet...

Marine Life Park
country: Singapore, Southeast Asia

Resorts World's Marine Life Park comprises two separate ticketed gates: Adventure Cove Waterpark and the Southeast Asia Aquarium. While it's not as disappointing as I found Gardens by the Bay, I don't feel it lives up to the high expectations. Don't get me wrong, though, it's good! It's basically a two-storey experience: the underground level constitutes the aquarium with its huge tanks, and the ground level above is dedicated to water park and dolphin interaction. The way...

Escape Theme Park

Visited 2008. Small amusement park that's now closed. Recalling a flume ride with a long chute. Was pretty pitiful a theme park for a place like Singapore...

Jurong Bird Park

Visited 2012. Same operators as Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. Located in the western outskirts, a bit far away from the city center, but worth the commute and much more fascinating than the name suggests. Impeccable landscaping and theming throughout...

Sentosa

Visited 2010 & 2014. Beautifully manicured jungle island with the feel of a Disney resort, packed with independent attractions. Highlights include 'MegaZip' (zip line sending you down to the beach), 'iFly Singapore' (indoor skydiving) and 'Songs of the Sea' (created by Yves Pépin, the same guy who masterminded the ingenious night show at Futuroscope in France). 'Images of Singapore' used to be a beautifully-themed museum, but the new UK-made live show with the...

Singapore Zoo

Visited 2012. One of the world's best zoos, so good that some call it a theme park. Don't miss the boat ride - it's an oasis in the heart of the city!...

Singapore Night Safari

Visited 2011. Comparable to the safari attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom, but by night. Really well done. Nearly impossible to spot the fences or moats separating the animals from the safari tram. Thoughtful lighting creates an atmosphere of surreal beauty. Pathways through the jungle lead to themed grottos. Awesome!...

Wild Wild Wet

Visited 2008. I am a very small, non-themed water park adjacent to former Escape Theme Park, close to Changi airport. Ignore me...

River Safari

Visited 2013. What happened here? River Safari's anchor attraction, Amazon River Quest, is a catastrophe. Compared to the spectacular, classic Night Safari, this much-touted river water ride is utterly pitiful in every respect: picture a creaking, slow log flume, barely moving, inching forward through meandering, narrow channels on a short ride, with only a few animals, and landscaping as lush and inspiring as a Burger King playground. Amazon Quest aside, this park is a...

Har Par Villa
country: Singapore, Southeast Asia

A somewhat wacky open air space cramped with statues and little figures. I was told the park used to have a number of rides, but they have all been demolished. The best exhibit left is a cavern with figures torturing each other in such comically brutal ways that suggest the sculptors had a lot of fun at work...

KidZania Singapore

Visited 2016. Another great, newly-built and standalone branch of global phenomenon KidZania. I was surprised that Singapore Airlines didn't step in as sponsor of its landmark airplane, allowing competitor Qatar Airways to burn into the minds and memories of tens of thousands of Singaporean kids. ...
