Jurassic World: ROAR! show
Putting the ROAR to the event is an action-packed stunt show featuring several dinosaurs – Velociraptor, Pteranodons, and even a Tyrannosaurus Rex! Definitely not to be missed!
Show Times: 1:30pm, 4:00pm, 6:30pm
Additional 9:00pm show on Fridays and Saturdays
In this show, Masrani Global Corporation unveils Jurassic World at Universal Studios Singapore!
Elizabeth, Jurassic World’s Park Operations Director, proudly announces the park’s newest achievements.
With the brand new, safe, reliable portable containment units, you can meet dinosaurs up-close. According to Miles, Head of Security at Jurassic World, that sounds good.
But enough talking – a volunteer was asked to come and give the features a go, dropping a tasty bundle of meat into the enclosure.
After the kid helps out with feeding, a lab assistant accidentally trips and pushes an emergency shutdown button, unlocking multiple enclosures.
Thankfully, Mile’s quick use of the clicker and hand signals calmed the raptor down and it was brought back to its containment unit.
Oh no! Pteranodons have escaped!
There’s too many of them.
After chasing away the remaining flying dinosaurs, the last enclosure slowly breaks apart…
And here comes the Tyrannosaurus rex!
Fortunately, Elizabeth was able to override the security system at the last minute.
Stick around for photo opportunities with the show’s stars, including the T-Rex!
For an original show in a temporary setup, this show (and the entire Jurassic World overlay) was quite a pleasant surprise. It felt like it belonged in this park, if only there was some space at The Lost World to keep some of this ideas into a permanent show. Some of the stunts were not performed during the media preview, so do check out the show when the event starts for the full experience!
Also, I heard that the Tyrannosaurus rex puppet from the park’s parade was used for this show. If you look carefully you can see some parts of the float behind it. Missing T-Rex float mystery solved.
Jurassic Encounter Augmented Reality
Stand among dinosaurs with the safety of augmented reality – happening at the New York Library stage for several times a day. You can also buy prints of your encounter after the experience!
Note: To experience this attraction, you may need to wait in line during peak periods.
Raptor Training School experience
Remember Val and Wyatt? Now that they’re back at Universal Studios Singapore, you can finally get the chance to interact with a Velociraptor and learn the skills to train one.
Show Times (Sunday – Thursday): 12:00pm, 2:00pm, 4:15pm, 6:00pm
Show Times (Friday – Saturday): 12:00pm, 2:00pm, 4:30pm, 7:00pm
Additional 11:30am and 7:30pm sessions on Saturdays
This is a free attraction, but it has limited slots. Registration before each show time is highly recommended. The experience is located outside the Jurassic Park zone, just across from Fossil Fuels (F&B outlet), towards Waterworld and Far Far Away.
It is an immersive experience – you get to wear trainer vests, and even get your own clicker. (All items to be returned after the experience)
You’ll learn the differences between 1 click and 4 clicks.
Before bringing in Val the Velociraptor, Wyatt will teach the trainees with the necessary clicking cues and hand signals.
Val is then brought in and each guest will have individual interaction time with the raptor.
This would probably be fun for the younger park guests, or if you could suspend disbelief for a while.
Hatched! Featuring Dr. Rodney show
Remember Dr Rodney and Diane? Now you can witness the birth of baby raptors! This new permanent attraction will be launching at Universal Studios Singapore from 29 June 2018.
Jurassic World displays around the park
Several dinosaurs have arrived, and you can meet them outside of the new shows and attractions.
Pteranodons soaring above Hollywood Boulevard – sometimes flapping their wings!
A smaller but still scary T-Rex at the Universal Store display window.
You won’t miss the Stegosaurus on the street – please do not touch or feed it!
Half a dinosaur outside…
And another half inside.
The Gyrosphere from Jurassic World will be added to Hollywood zone from 8 June.
Jurassic Park-themed Food around the Park
Check out these new Jurassic Grub around the park, available at many of the park’s dining outlets.
Isla Nublar’s Bloomer (Blooming Onions) now available at USS.
Mount Sibo Flaming Pizza. Named after the active volcano on Isla Nublar. It’s the one that’s going to explode in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, right?
And basically a lot of other dishes that are given Jurassic names.
Chicken Waffles? At USS??!
If the food seems too meaty and fried for you – try some of these sweet treats:
Dinosaur Egg Cupcakes
Mangosaurus Coconut Shake. This is pretty good.
