After a long and tiring day accompanied by stress during and after working hours, all we want to do is take a day off, relax and unplug ourselves from the stressful world. Today, we at Pinoy Secret Files, will take you to a ride that will bring back your childhood. Welcome to Universal Studios Singapore (USS)!

Universal Studios is one of the greatest and if not, the greatest and a must-go-to attraction in Singapore! No one wants to miss Universal Studio in Singapore, right? If you’ve been to Singapore but haven’t been to USS, then you haven’t been to Singapore yet! This must be on the top of your itinerary!

Today, we will give you a quick tour around USS. More details about Singapore itself will be posted soon! So stand by for that! But for now, USS is our primary topic.

If you are looking for the best deal for your USS tour, we recommend AsiaTravel as they have the best deals out there! We were able to purchase a day pass for USS for two (2). Upon booking, you will receive an email confirmation and instructions on how to redeem your tickets. Don’t worry, it is so easy you won’t get lost as upon arrival to USS, the first thing you will see is this ticket booth (picture above) wherein you will redeem your tickets.

Our ticket cost around 76 SGD. It is a Universal Studios Singapore E-Ticket with 1 way Transfer Service from hotel to Universal Studios. It also comes with a 5 SGD meal discount.

You need not to worry when going back as they have a free ride to the mall and from there, you can make your way back to your hotel.

One cool thing is that you can exit and re-enter USS anytime. They will stamp you with an ultraviolet stamp.
At first, we thought the stamp has no ink but the staff told us that it is “UV” so we do not need to worry about that.

Yep, they are one of the many faces of Pinoy Secret Files! Every one who enters USS must have this shot! If you see this rotating globe with the word “Universal” on it, then you are indeed in USS.
Note: It is a little tricky to take a selfie since its rotating.

USS is divided into several divisions. New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar and Hollywood. Each division have different attractions.


Oh, look at that joy! #minionCraze
It seems that not only in the Philippines we have those minion craze!

These are the attractions and booths found in Madagascar.

And yes, photo ops are a must!
Don’t worry, there are official USS photographers that will take pictures of you in which you can purchase.

Far Far Away
Welcome to the Galaxy Far Far Away… That ain’t right…
Welcome to Far Far Away!

Human for scale.

In the King’s perspective, the view of the castle.
We were able to get a hop on the attraction inside the castle. It’s a 4D ride. If you’ve been to Enchanted Kingdom, they are similar but this is in 3D which have moving seats and air that blows in your face. LoL

The Lost World – Jurassic Park
These attractions are one of the longest. So we were not able to hop on it.

More attractions in The Lost World.

Ancient Egypt
For some reason, we find this place the hottest! Maybe because of how the “environment” was made? I promise you, of all the division we’ve been thru, this is the hottest part.

Another human for scale.

The queue on this ride is damn long! We were not able to hop on this one.

Battlestar Galactica
Looks like a giant dildo to me. LoL
This coaster was closed. I think it is under repairs.

Sci-Fi City
Humans for scale, again.

Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime, one of the most queued photo attactions

The one on the left is just a life size Optimus Prime, non moving. But on the right is the Optimus Prime mascot.

New York
Human for scale again.

We all love Sesame Street!
Just in time, we were able to watch Cookie Monster, Oscar the grouch and Bert during their street performance!

More of Elmo!

These are some Lego toys of the Transformers invading USS!
Oh look at how the guy on the right screams!

There are plenty of restaurants to dine inside USS but since we were so exhausted and hungry, we opt to dine at Mel’s Drive-In.
The environment is full of jukeboxes. Feels like we were in the 80’s

Must.. Take.. This.. Bite!!
So we have this burger and fries combo. Take note, the size of their burgers are not the same as ours here in the Philippines. This regular burger is as big as a double cheese burger. Just look at how wide her mouth is in order to take a bite!
Our lunch cost around 25.90 SGD. And since we have a 10 USD discount (5 SGD each), we were able to spend 15.90 SGD instead.

If you think chocolates here are expensive, no they are not!
That’s what we thought at first. We suggest you buy those that can be only found here. We thought we can find those somewhere in Singapore but we can’t. We should have bought them already. Oh well.

We were really glad that the weather cooperated with us. It was a bright, sunny day when we went to USS. We suggest you bring extra shirts and wear protective gears such as sunglasses, caps and don’t forget the sun block. The weather in Singapore is hotter compared to our country but not humid. So when you perspire, you won’t feel sticky unlike here.

Singapore is known to have potable water which means clean drinking water everywhere. So you might want to bring an empty water bottle for you to refill as there are many drinking fountains all over USS.

The next time we visit USS, we will surely try all attractions.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any suggestions? Bless you!

  • g her says:

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  • Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Whats up very cool web site!! Guy .. Excellent ..
    Superb .. I will bookmark your web site and take the feeds additionally?
    I’m happy to seek out so many useful info right here within the submit, we need develop
    extra techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing.
    . . . . .

  • I couldn’t resist commenting. Perfectly written!

  • We stumbled over here from a different page and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward
    to going over your web page repeatedly.

  • With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content
    I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks
    like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  • Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any suggestions?
