Universal Studios Singapore – Park Update 03/2013

Hollywood Dreams Parade - Jurassic Park

A lot of people have asked what happened to the March USS park update. The reason there wasn’t one? I had no time to visit the resort for the past few weeks and there was a lot of coverage over Sesame Street in early March.

But anyway, since there were requests, I’ve decided to compile some small changes that happened in the past few weeks, such as the new Annual Passes. Yes, they made some changes again.

Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase – Grand Opening & Carnival at New York

Mini Sesame Street Pinwheels

Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase is now officially open at Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World at Sentosa. With a light-hearted and silly storyline about missing spaghetti, this indoor dark ride brings guests on a space adventure to recover stolen pasta. To celebrate the grand opening of this new family-oriented attraction, Universal Studios Singapore is organizing a Sesame Street Carnival for the ride’s opening weekend (March 1st 2013 ~ March 3rd 2013).

I’ve already published a very in-depth ride review and information treasure trove about the ride two weeks ago. Be sure to read it!

As several readers wrote to me requesting for a trip report and photos of the Grand Opening and Sesame Street Carnival, I made a special trip to the park. Enjoy the photos!

Incanto – behind the stage

Incanto, Festive Grand Theatre

I’ve been invited to a backstage tour at Festive Grand Theatre, the current home of Incanto. Together with other bloggers, we had a special look behind the scenes. We didn’t uncover any secrets to the stage illusions (of course not!) but we had encounters with some of the cast and crew, followed by a treat of the show itself.

Incanto has been showing since last November at Festive Grand Theatre, Resorts World at Sentosa. You can find my original full review here.

Marine Life Park – dolphins from the air

DSC08299

Marine Life Park opened to the public last Thursday, 22nd November 2012. While there is no further construction taking place at the park, the from the air series will continue as we take an extended look at Marine Life Park’s Adventure Cove Waterpark in operation.

The opening of the world’s largest Oceanarium was blemished with the unfortunate passing of Wen Wen, an Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphin. This dolphin died en route to Singapore. A candlelight vigil and memorial service will be held for the dolphin on 2nd Dec 2012. The remaining 24 dolphins (from the original group of 27) are now at the Dolphin Island section of Marine Life Park, acclimatizing to their new home.

The loss of another captive dolphin has stirred up the angry nest of animal activists, causing Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) Facebook Fan page and local news websites to be flooded with comments, urging for the release of the remaining 24 dolphins in captivity.

Note: My blog entries on Marine Life Park are here to provide coverage and share content that other sites do not offer. These entries are produced for documentation purposes and as personal reviews and trip reports of Marine Life Park. I do not get paid by RWS. While I enjoy taking photos and blogging about attractions, my entries are not direct endorsements for Marine Life Park. I am not oblivious to the issue of dolphin hunting and dolphins in captivity, having viewed campaigns and research findings by activist groups as well as the responses by the Marine Life Park.

Edit 29/11/2012: Please do not jump to conclusions on the overall enclosure size for the dolphins, or the living conditions in the enclosure, because these details cannot (and SHOULD NOT) be inferred solely from the photos in this entry.
