Top 7 most Anticipated attractions at Universal Studios Singapore

Number 7 - Donkey live!
This attraction is highly anticipated by me as the technology involved in it is cool. It will feature never seem before technology where the visitors will be able to interact real time with a movie quality, instantly generated Donkey from Shrek. Donkey will sing and dance, and it is guaranteed to be an instant hit with families.

Number 6 -Lights! Cameras! Action!
Hosted by Steven Spielberg, guests can be blown away by the filmmakers incredible special effects as an empty sound stage becomes the setting for a major hurricane about to hit New York City. It is just so cool and it will give movie lovers a glimpse into the world of movie making.

Number 5 - Revenge of the Mummy
This ride is a milestone in Universal Studios' line of attractions. Since its inception in Florida. This ride is based on the Mummy franchise of movies. It is an amazing mix of story telling and thrill ride in an indoor roller coaster. What is even more exciting is that each time Universal Studios built this ride, they will change some part of it to add some surprise to it. What is more exciting is that there is an entire them land based on the Egyptian theme.

Number 4 - Jurassic Park River Adventure
This attraction is fun, highly themed and wet! It will be a family friendly ride where families will go on it together to create unique memories. The ride system and ride vehicle is also unique and it has never been used before in Universal Studios theme parks around the world.

Number 3 - Madagascar: A crate adventure
This attraction is family friendly, it is based on a hit movie, and the second installment of this franchise has just been released, so there is renewed interest for the whole franchise. It has great potential to be the attraction with the longest queue and also with the biggest merchandise potential. The ride is a combination of mulit media materials and physical settings, which makes it a unique attraction.

Number 2 - Battlestar Galactica Cyclone
This coaster is simply cool. Here are some figures to prove my point
  • It will be the tallest dueling coaster in the world; tipping at 42.5m (140ft).
  • The coaster will be launched from their stations at high speed instead of the traditional chain lift.
  • Each coaster feature either several inversions, a zero-g roll, a Cobra roll, corkscrews, vertical loops and near collisions mere inches apart.
  • Part of the ride will take place over a lagoon.
The Cylons Coaster will travel on a space craft that will perform more intense manoeuvres such as one inverted loop, one cobra roll and one helix spiral. The Cylon coaster will also plunge into a 5-metre deep pit filled with artificial fog to give thrill seekers the sensation of a near miss with the ground. Also, imagine viewing the skyline of Singapore when on the highest point of the coaster, before dipping into darkness. The views on this coaster will be spectacular.

Number 1 - Transformers: The ride
Universal has not released a lot of details, but it will be a dark ride (ride-through attraction) with 3-D, high-definition projected images, 4-D sensory and special effects, and large-scale animatronic characters. This ride based on such a hit movie and empo=loying such cutting edge technology earns itself a spot on the Top 7 most Anticipated attractions.
