Santa’s All-Star Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore December Park Update - Santa's All Star Christmas 2016 / Santa's Village Dance

Get into the festive spirit at Universal Studios Singapore’s Santa’s All-Star Christmas event!

About Santa’s All-Star Christmas 2016

This is the park’s largest Christmas event yet – with three stage shows, an interactive show experience and the record-breaking Universal Journey attraction.

This event takes place from 1 December 2016 to 2 January 2017. It will take a break on 31 December 2016 as the park will be holding the Dance in the Park Countdown event.

During the event period, the park will be open from 10:00am to 9:00pm. However, not all Christmas shows and attractions are open right from the start of the day. We’ve noticed that Santa’s Village opens from 1pm, and most of the Christmas shows begin in the afternoon. Check the park’s times guide when you visit!

Santa’s Village

Universal Studios Singapore December Park Update - Santa's All Star Christmas 2016 / Santa's Village entrance night

The totally-new thing this year is Santa’s Village, at the area where the Salem Witch House once stood during Halloween Horror Nights 6. Similar to that Haunted House, you have to enter through the Rockefeller Building facade at New York zone.

After passing by a rather bland queue area (which thankfully wasn’t used) and a needless photo op station, you’ll find yourself transported to Santa’s Village through a ‘snow tube’ and rainbow tunnel.

Santa’s Village isn’t the largest space (wow, they built a haunted house here?), but there are numerous ‘stations’ with roaming performers. Unlike last year’s Scrooge Alley, there is more space for all the characters to roam about, and there’s even a stage for small performances.

(There’s too much of the ‘Hobo’ typeface used for the shop signs, which gives the area a simplistic, mall-like feel. Perhaps some effort could be done to give each signboard a different look and personality)

As the residents of Santa’s Village (mostly elves) interact with visitors at their town, many things can happen during your visit. Over a span of 45 minutes or so, many things can happen that will disrupt the usual, idyllic state of the village.

Under the Mistletoe

Universal Studios Singapore December Park Update - Santa's All Star Christmas 2016 / Under the Mistletoe show held by the boys

Be charmed by Marilyn Monroe and Betty Boop as they sing about their favourite things and quarrel with songs and dance at Under The Mistletoe.

Staged at the New York Library, this is an all-new show that is easily one of the most memorable with the songs alone. After all, where else could Marilyn steal Betty’s “I Want You For Christmas”?

Bah Humbug! A Christmas Spectacular!

This year’s headlining stage show extravaganza is written/ produced/ directed/ and sponsored by Ebenezer Scrooge.

Bah Humbug! is in many ways a remix of last year’s Christmas shows and experiences. Now a philanthropist and director, Scrooge has brought together a cast of streetrats, elves, Minions, Sesame Street gang and even the Snow Queen herself.

Santa’s All Star Christmas – Spotify Playlist

Universal Studios Singapore December Park Update - Santa's All Star Christmas 2016 Soundtrack Cover

Here’s our playlist of the songs we heard at the park’s shows: Under the Mistletoe, Bah Humbug! A Christmas Spectacular, and Mel’s Christmas Jive. Note that many of the songs are specially arranged and performed live at the park, thus this playlist would not have the same songs. If you want the versions played at the park, you’ll have to watch the shows LIVE at the park.

Universal Journey

Despite the fanfare, the Universal Journey attraction wasn’t too crowded in early December. Better visit it now to snap all your photos, before everyone hears about this.

Seems like the memo’s to have more stars, less snowflakes this year.

    I’m envious that this year’s USS Xmas offerings are this good. Too bad I’m overseas and not able to participate. Sigh.
    All in all, good to see USS moving towards bigger seasonal events to draw in the locals. TDR now has no obvious lull period with Frozen -> Easter -> Summer -> Halloween -> Xmas events annually. And with seasonal food and merchandise to boot (which obviously rakes in the money.

    All these events won’t be happening on the 31 Dec?

    • Dejiki December 7, 2016 at 9:43 pm #

      If it’s like past years, the shows will continue to run during the day. However the schedule will be adjusted for the unique Countdown entertainment happening on the night of 31 Dec.
