Also known as New Year’s Eve at Universal Studios Singapore, this year’s countdown at USS is billed as Singapore’s largest family countdown event.

When

6:00PM – 1:00AM (1st Jan 2014)
*Guests with Day Passes can enjoy the park’s attractions all day and night.
*Universal Studios Singapore Annual and Season Passholders can enter USS at any time from 10am.

The park will be open for guests with Party Admission Passes from 6pm.

Where

Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World at Sentosa
Nearest MRT Station: Harbourfront

Why choose this event?

It’s Universal Studios Singapore! USS countdown parties for the past two years seemed to be a great hits. RWS bills this event as the largest family-friendly countdown party in Singapore. There will of course, be the usual fireworks display at Lake Hollywood as the park welcomes the new year.

Park attractions available during New Year’s Eve Party at USS
Most rides and shows will stay open till 1AM. Certain outdoor attractions will be closed earlier in preparation for fireworks right after the countdown.

Special Performances and activities
The park has a wide line-up of entertainment for the big Countdown to 2014 at USS: Tribute performances of pop stars such as Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears, flanked with band performances by The Rocketeers and DJ Edward. The streets of New York and Hollywood zones will be filled with stilt-walkers, buskers, street performers, balloon sculpters and face-painters will keep guests entertained.

Throwback 2011: “Oldies Revival” USS Countdown in 2012 (Trip Report: Boogie Countdown at Universal Studios Singapore).

Minimum Age to attend

No minimum age of entry. However, young children should be accompanied with adults.

Ticketing Info

Day Pass – Admission to park from 10am, can stay for Countdown event hours

Adult: $74
Child: $54
Senior: $36


Party Admission (Valid after 6pm on 31st December 2013 only)

After 6pm Party Admission Pass: $68

Just like last year, there is only one category of tickets for guests of all ages. Given the high ticket price of the Party Pass, it makes more sense to just purchase a Day Pass and be at the park early in the day (I guess this is what the park is planning anyway). It makes more sense especially when there isn’t Child/Senior pricing for the Countdown party.

Party Admission Pass – Discounted Rates
Promotions to be unveiled soon.
