As Southeast Asia’s first Hollywood movie theme park, USS offers a tantalizing array of attractions, rides, and other forms of entertainment for both families and thrill-seekers. Indeed, 18 of the 24 rides with a movie theme were specifically created for the Singapore park. There are seven specially created zones, each of which is based on movie iconography.

In the popular ‘Sci-Fi City’, you may see the renowned TRANSFORMERS. The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle ride, where you engage in tense 3D combat with wicked forces. Continue to Ancient Egypt where you will ride an indoor roller coaster in complete darkness while facing mummies and scarab beetles. Furthermore, be prepared to get soaked on a river boat excursion in ‘Madagascar’, and many more!

Our Maxicab will drop you off at Resorts World Sentosa’s underground car park. The park will be open until 10 p.m. if you visit on a Friday, Saturday, or certain public holidays, when there will be an exciting line-up of night-time activities called Universal After Hours. Enjoy a variety of street foods while you dance to the rhythm truck’s music and watch the Hollywood Dreams Light Up Parade’s celebrities in awe.

Singapore Zoo

Located on the island’s northwest coast, Singapore Zoo is a haven for amazing animals and a must-see destination for animal enthusiasts. This cherished enterprise became one of the top rainforest zoos in the world after initially opening its doors to the public in 1973. The zoo has garnered a plethora of national and international awards in addition to housing more than 2,800 animals from 300 species, including crocodiles, Malayan tapirs, and white tigers.

Get close to the charming lemurs and sloths of Fragile Forest, make friends with the grey kangaroos and wallabies at the Australasia exhibit, and be in awe of the majestic lions and zebras of Wild Africa. The zoo offers a variety of chances for up-close experiences, such as feeding sessions with animals like giraffes and elephants and behind-the-scenes glimpses on the Wild Discoverer Tour.

Sit back and relax in our Maxicab limo as you enjoy a 30-minute ride from the city to the zoo. Our Maxicab will conveniently drop you off in front of the zoo entrance for you to begin your day.

River Wonders

The River Wonders is both a river-themed zoo and aquarium that is tucked between Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. The newest wildlife park in Singapore features more than 6,000 creatures, including 40 vulnerable species, in areas that mimic the habitats of rivers from the Yangtze to the Mississippi.

Before visiting the popular giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia, take a moment to admire the cute red panda at River Wonders Singapore! Aside from the pandas, Asia’s first and only river-themed wildlife park features a wide variety of other creatures. On the safari’s ‘Once Upon a River’ program, go on an up-close experience with pelicans, beavers, and capybaras. You can also meet some of the wonderful creatures from the greatest tropical rainforest in the world, including the jaguar and maned wolf, by setting sail on the Amazon River Quest, a short 10-minute boat journey, as you wander into Wild Amazonia.

Say “hello” to the roaming inhabitants of this tropical aviary by entering the Squirrel Monkey Forest. From the trees above you, keep an eye out for their bounding leaps. Then, at the Amazon Flooded Forest, marvel at the enormous manatees swimming serenely around their correspondingly enormous tank.

Mount Faber Park

The second-highest hill in Singapore, Mount Faber, is accessible by car and you can see one of the nation’s most well-known sights.  The Sentosa Island eating and entertainment complex is located at the island’s peak, and the cable car system connecting Mount Faber to Sentosa Island in Singapore is also a great way to explore the island

Telok Blangah Hill was renamed to Mount Faber in July 1845 in honor of Madras Engineers Captain Charles Edward Faber, who built a slender, winding path to the peak in order to set up a signal station. Faber Peak, a popular tourist attraction where you can enjoy some of the best views in the nation while drinking at hip pubs and restaurants, was created in 2005 from the cable car station atop Mount Faber. Grab a drink and choose from a selection of delectable Western fare at Dusk Restaurant and Bar, or indulge in a dinner inspired by the region while relaxing in a cable car cabin as you travel serenely over the city’s night-time lights below.

It’s a fascinating event for the whole family or a novel way to spend a romantic evening with a loved one.

Cloud Forest

One of Singapore’s most beautiful sights is Cloud Forest, which is located within Gardens by the Bay. This spectacular glass dome, which resembles a greenhouse, can be seen from a great distance and is equally beautiful on the inside as it is outside. The substantial, climate-controlled dome features one of the tallest indoor waterfalls in the world that cascades down from a height of more than 30 meters and spiralling pathways.

A trip to Cloud Forest is simply a terrific way to cool off because Singapore is a hot country all year long. The temperature inside Cloud Forest Singapore is kept low to mimic the moist, damp conditions found on foggy tropical mountains between 900 and 2,700 meters above sea level, thanks to air conditioning, jets of cold vapour, and that delightful waterfall.

Planning a visit to Singapore may not be easy, but with these attractions above, they will make your trip a memorable one.
