During the media preview, the only Lunar New Year change was a mash-up of two songs from the 1960s: “Land of 1000 Dances” and “欢乐今宵”.

Majestic Dragon Trail

Universal Studios Singapore Park Update February 2018 Chinese New Year - Majestic Dragon Trail / Beginning Woody Woodpecker

Headlining the park’s festive celebration is a new take on the chinese dragon dance, which starts from New York zone (Vine Street gate) and goes around Universal Studios Singapore. This is the first show that covers all seven zones of the park (Death March in HHN6 passes through Sci-Fi City without performance).

The dragon trail – performed by the professionals – will make several stops to meet characters from every zone, and sometimes the Pearl is briefly handed over to the park characters (and back). It’s not the usual theme park parade.

After Woody Woodpecker, there’s the Autobots at Sci-Fi City – they seem quite confused by the ruckus.

This performance is about 20 minutes long, so it’s not going to be a peaceful stroll around the park like the other parades. It’s pretty energetic (even with loud drum music to match), so be prepared to move quickly if you want to catch all the moments. Otherwise, you can stay behind to take photos with the other characters at the various zones.
