Jump for joy in Trollstopia at Universal Studios Singapore, the park’s newest event based on DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls.
Kicking off at the start of the 2018 March school holidays (9 March) till 29 April, Trollstopia is the newest park event that brings much colour and fun to the park’s Hollywood zone. This event is included in regular USS park admission, except for some premium experiences.
Headlining the event are two all-new shows based on the characters and popular songs from the 2016 movie, along with smaller fun experience scattered around the park. Check out some highlights below
Change in Park Hours
From 10 March till 18 March (School Holidays), the park will be open from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.
Then, from 23 March onwards, the park will be changing its opening hours for Fridays and Saturdays to 10:00AM to 10:00PM. Wow!
Note: Show Times subject to change, please refer to schedule in the park when you visit.
Catch this main show (also called TrollsTopia) at the new dazzling stage at Hollywood, where you can join in the celebrations as Princess Poppy becomes the Queen of TrollsTopia.
This 15-minute show is performed twice a day (12pm and 2pm), and it starts off with the characters arriving from the other end of Hollywood Boulevard.
Stick around for a meet-and-greet session with Poppy and Branch at this colourful stage after the show!
Hug Time Trio show
The Hug Time Trio will delight you with a joyful medley at this second all-new show for the event. Come and dance along with them, twice a day, at 4:00pm and 6:30pm.
Poppy and Branch will also appear after the show – but not on the stage. You can meet them at these new ‘flower points’ along Hollywood.
A walk around Trollstopia
The park’s Hollywood zone got trollified.
It’s not a major overlay like for Halloween or Christmas, but there’s a surprising amount of 3D props.
Lots of Trolls merchandise are available at the park.
Even the park’s recycling bins sport a new look – and don’t forget to grab a few of the new park maps.
Dance around inside in this big silver box outside the Hollywood China Arcade, a fun experience brought to you by the sparkly troll, Guy Diamond.
You can bring up to two other friends along for each glitter session.
While you do that, grab some of the red slips embedded in the confetti – you could win prizes such as $5 vouchers, Trolls VR experience and Trollify vouchers (see below), and other fun gifts to be redeemed.
While you can grab as many confetti and prize slips in each glitter session, you can only pick one prize when you leave the Glitterpalooza.
You can keep revisiting this free experience, so expect some wait time during peak periods. The queues became really long when word got out that people could win free things so easily.
Get yourself a troll makeover with face painting, tattoos (temporary ones of course) and crazy troll wigs here.
Separate charges apply, depending on the extent of your makeover and for the optional photo opportunity at the end.
Virtual Reality experiences
Put on the VR googles and step into another dimension of Trollstopia! Over at the Hollywood China Arcade, two Trolls-themed VR games are now available.
Guests will need to put on a HTC Vive VR headset for this experience, and the games are recommended for participants aged 7 years and above. You can always watch the action from the screen if you’re not playing.
Separate charges apply for TrollsTopia VR experiences, at $5 per activity session.
VR Troll Art prints can be purchased from the park’s The Dark Room store.
Trolls Merchandise and Special Dessert Menu
Can’t get enough of Trolls? Bring some merchandise home!
A huge selection of Trolls merchandise are now available at the Silver Screen Store and Universal Studios Store.
Treat yourself to some Trollified desserts and snacks at Loui’s NY Pizza Parlor (New York), which now has a new seating area. (Thanks TM)
The next big thing at USS?
Some people have asked me when would the next major attraction arrive at USS. And what is it.
With the deluge of exciting new developments coming to theme parks in the US, Japan and China, it is perhaps, quite natural to feel that our compact park will also be embarking on an ambitious expansion plan. But to put things in perspective, this park is about 8 years old; it is still bringing in strong streams of tourists; and it is still the only ‘major’ park in the South-East Asia region.
I’d say that we can certainly expect more seasonal events anchored on existing films, shows and characters, in place of permanent attractions. Many big theme parks have been doing this for a while, and in recent years Universal Studios Singapore has started to embrace staging highly-produced cross-promotional activities with their partners. Perhaps even the park’s biggest, and most important event would reach a major turning point this year with the much-requested things finally on the way. We’ll see.
