Get wet at Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure

0 komentar
Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure is a raft water ride located in The Lost World zone at Universal Studios Singapore in Resorts World Sentosa, Sentosa Island, Singapore. It is based off the concept of Jurassic Park: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure

It features a white water raft system where riders on circular rafts are tossed along waterways within the Jurassic Park compound, which is home to several animatronic dinosaurs, the ride finishes with riders plunging down from the Hydroelectric Generator compound.

The Ride
The raft first passes Stegosaurus Springs, where a Stegosaurus and its young are grazing on the shore and then passes Parasaurolophus lagoon, where a visible Parasaurolophus and a hidden Parasaurolophus that pops out of the water, shooting water at the riders. The rafting journey was full of surprises and some of the track becomes totally dark.  The most hysterical moment when the raft ascends and stops. A Tyrannosaurus pokes its head through the ceiling and snaps at riders. The vehicle then falls down a slope from a height of 40 feet, drenching the riders.

Tips: 
  • At the journey, there will be water shooting at you. You will get wet but not soak, but you can buy rain coat at this park. 
  • Wrap your camera on with plastic bag and put at your bag. 
  • If you get wet and you have an extra change, then after this ride, continue to waterworld show, plan your schedule accordingly. 
  • Guests must be least 107cm in height to ride. Children 107cm to 122cm must be accompanied by a supervising companion

Revenge of the Mummy - Universal Studio - Singapore

0 komentar
Revenge of the Mummy is a roller coaster that is nearly identical to the version at Universal Studios Florida. However, the Singapore version includes new sounds and effects, as well as a new ending featuring Imhotep being sealed inside his tomb.

Entering the game, we should not bring bag or camera because it can fall or be lost while flying roller coaster. They provide lockers next to this place. Sizable locker to store personal items and use a password for security.


 As the ride begins the mine cars move deeper into the tomb. The words "Find the Book" are scrawled over the walls. As the mine car turns, riders see Evelyn's supervisor being trapped on a table and warns the riders: "Find the Book of the Living and kill Imhotep! It's your only hope!". Standing next to him is Imhotep, who then turns towards riders and sucks out the supervisor's soul. He is holding onto the Book of the Dead.

0 komentar
Battlestar Galactica: Human vs. Cylon is a pair of steel, dueling roller coasters at Universal Studios Singapore. One half of the ride features an inverted roller coaster track in blue, and the other half features the traditional seated roller coaster track design in red. It is the tallest dueling coaster in the world; tipping at 42.5 metres (139 ft). The roller coaster trains are launched from their stations at high speed instead of the traditional chain lift. Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM) are used for high-acceleration speed during launching. In a similar style to the Dragon Challenge at Universal's Islands of Adventure, these coasters will feature several near collisions mere inches apart. Additionally, part of the ride takes place over the park's central lagoon. The coasters are the first Vekoma coasters that aren't the Flying Dutchman model to feature four-abreast seating, similar to the coasters by Bolliger & Mabillard and Premier Rides.


Battlestar Galactica: Cylon is a suspended roller coaster and travels on an inverted blue track.

The Cylon coaster is a coaster designed like the Cylon Raider suspended from the track with legs free that performs intense maneuvers including several inversions in the form of a zero-g roll, a Cobra roll, corkscrews and vertical loops.
