NEW: Puss in Boots’ Giant Journey – FULLY REVEALED (4 April Update)

After more than a year, the walls at Far Far Away are finally removed. I’m very pleased to reveal the completed entrance of Puss in Boots’ Giant Journey. The quality of the theming here is quite something.

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride - Tower Revealed

Behold, the new Romeo Drive!

The Tower – we finally get to see how the beanstalk sprouts from the ground. With lush greenery surrounding the stalks, it looks good.

The Legend returns!

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride - Attraction Entrance with Universal Express lane

The queue splits right at the beginning into two lanes – the normal attraction entrance and Universal Express. There’s a gentle incline as both lines go deeper into the attraction.. and right into the Giant’s Castle.

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride - Attraction Exit

To the right side of the tower, beside the queue, is what I assume the ride’s exit, or an alternate entrance. The foreground is also the stroller parking zone. If you look carefully in my other photos, it’s a gosling on a stroller. 😀

I’m quite pleased with the theming outside so far – it’s simply beautiful. Now I hope that the queue inside, and the ride itself, is just as amazing.

Notice how the coaster track supports are painted to blend in with the tower’s wall?

On the left of the tower – there’s a new wall. Also, notice the track. This is likely the segment right before the spiral lift hill.

It’s full of posters referencing characters from the Shrek Universe.

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride - Crew member, new uniform for Puss in Boots attraction

Some crew members are now stationed at the attraction entrance. Sporting the new uniforms, the crew has been informing guests that the ride will open soon. Please be nice to them!

The park has not publicly announced an opening date yet. All I can say is that this ride will be opening very soon. Meanwhile, you may want to scroll down to see the previous update which has some area music and audio from the roller coaster vehicle.

Update on Puss in Boots attraction (1 April Update)

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride construction update 1

There are more signs – literally – that this Puss in Boots-themed suspended roller coaster ride will open soon.

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Puss in Boots' Giant Journey ride construction update 2 / Ride undergoing tests with full effects

First, the ride has been testing very regularly in the past weeks – but this time, with sound effects and area music. Have a listen:

◂ Video: Puss in Boots’ Giant Journey

Hear it first here: Music from the ride!


This video is recorded during the period of national mourning. As the Far Far Away area music is disabled during that period, the audio captured are entirely from the Puss in Boots attraction. The speakers are pretty far, but if you turn up the volume you might hear some familiar motifs. Yep, they’re from the Puss in Boots film, of course!

The second half of the video is an interrupted take so that you can hear the area music. It also shows that the ride system can dispatch vehicles in 40-second cycles. If each vehicle seats 9 guests, what is the Theoretical Hourly Ride Capacity?

The ride vehicles for Puss in Boots’ Giant Journey will have an on-board sound system (at least 9 of such speakers, for the 9 guests) for music and sound effects.

The Puss in Boots figure, which is part of the ride’s beautiful signage, was finally complete (a few weeks ago).

Next, the park has removed those tall palm trees lining Romeo Drive! That gives a much better view of the tower.

Remodeling of the flooring happened a week ago, and it will blend with the rest of the street eventually.

Fast & Furious 7 Display at Universal Studios Singapore

Guess who’s at the park? Vin Diesel.

Well, Vin Diesel isn’t really in Singapore, but his wax figure from Madame Tussauds is now on display at the New York zone. It is part of the Fast & Furious 7 display at Universal Studios Singapore, accompanied with two cars used in the production of the latest film.

Fast Attack

I was surprised to only see three exhibits tucked underneath the marquee of the ‘Palace’ theatre. These will be displayed until 16 August 2015, and it is unclear if there will be a rotation of displays months down the road. Meanwhile, check out some details of the production vehicles here:

Vin Diesel is of course, still the main highlight of the display. Come get your photos with Dominic Toretto!

A similar display can also be found at Universal Studios Hollywood. That park will also be opening its new Fast & Furious: Supercharged attraction soon.

Park programming adjustments during period of National Mourning

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - In Memory of Mr Lee Kuan Yew / Park Tribute

During the period of National Mourning for Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew, there were some adjustments to the park’s programming.

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - In Memory of Mr Lee Kuan Yew / Park Tribute and programming changes 1

Most, if not all of the outdoor performances were not performed during this period. This includes shows at Mel’s Stage, the Universal Party Parade, night-time fireworks show and the outdoor segment of Royal Lunch at Eggingham Palace. Some of the performances were substituted with character meet and greet sessions.

Stage shows, such as Sesame Street in Pantages Hollywood Theatre, Donkey Live, and Waterworld continued to operate as per normal.

Park music was also disabled outdoors, meaning the only place you could hear any area audio would be inside attractions’ queue areas. Taking away the music drastically affects the thematic experience of the park, so we’d have to commend USS for doing this as a mark of respect.

Easter Eggstavaganza

Universal Studios Singapore - Park Update April 2015 - Easter Eggstravaganza - Easter Minions

Easter’s this weekend, so if you’re thinking of checking out Easter Eggstravaganza, this is the last week!

It’ll be another year before you see the park’s iconic characters in colourful Easter garb.

Also, don’t miss the Royal Lunch at Eggingham Gardens – a show that’s too deliciously zany to miss.

    Great to see works on puss in boots. Saw some staff pics on Instagram that they r attending crew operations workshops n stuff. Hope uss has new announcements after easter ends!

    *will the 2 new attractions mentioned in the ntuc may day event be referring to the fast and furious & puss? Quite a pity if it’s not bsg anytime soon…

  2. Garva Garnesh April 1, 2015 at 5:32 pm #

    Great updates! Just wondering, what’s the update with battlestar galatica?

  3. Sjaak April 2, 2015 at 9:43 am #

    Any updates abt BSG75 ?

  4. Jeremy April 2, 2015 at 5:48 pm #

    Sure do look forward to visiting soon! I really hope I can squeeze in some time to visit this weekend so I can see the Easter show one more time! I’ve only seen it once and I can say the pre-show with the Egg-Lord’s stunts is truly amazing and worth seeing.

    It was nice of USS to respect Mr Lee Kuan Yew in that way.

    Was The Dance of The Magic Beans also turned into meet and greet? Was it just Puss and Kitty or the Milk Bartender as well?

    In addition, do the Rockafellas still perform at their regular location since the Fast & Furious Cars have been parked there? I really hope to see those cars soon and take some pictures haha

    • Dejiki April 3, 2015 at 8:33 pm #

      Hi Jeremy,

      The Rockafellas will still perform at the same location. They may have slightly less space, and the Fast & Furious display will not be accessible during performances.

  5. Khairil Indra April 2, 2015 at 11:45 pm #

    There’s a high posibility that the two new attractions will be opened sometimes around this month or during the NTUC May Day on 3rd May

    • zach April 3, 2015 at 9:50 pm #

      probably, cause i saw someone post on instagram a new universal studios singapore tickets with puss in boots ride graphic on it, ( NTUC May Day tickets )

  6. Zezima April 8, 2015 at 12:02 pm #

    The ride has opened today! (Wednesday 08 Apr 2015)

    Now I see why the USS crew told me not to reveal the opening date for this attraction as not to disappoint the guests who bought the one day tickets few days before the opening.

    Guess I will try out the ride this coming weekend – Glad that I have my EXPRESS add-on on my Annual pass (RWSIA).

  7. km April 8, 2015 at 5:55 pm #

    they said annual pass holders will get priority and preview to new rides and event invites.
    bullshit. where the priority and where the update and news about new ride. had to find out from a blog. had to find out from facebook posts. rubbish this annual pass. not going to renew.
