Preparation guide for Universal Studios Singapore

Your best trip ever awaits you...

Posted on 08 May 2018

 Pace yourself.

Universal Studios Singapore (‘USS’) is the size of 25-football fields combined! Being the only Universal Studios in all of South-East Asia, this is a spectacular marvel of a theme park.

When you should visit?

At any point in time, USS offers you an unforgettable experience.

Crowds of people can make your experience more diverse and vibrant but if you love your quiet, visiting during the weekdays and avoiding March, June, September and December school holidays will generally provide a less crowded environment.

Visiting during the weekday does mean that you may miss the Hollywood Dreams Parade and Lake Hollywood Spectacular pyrotechnics show. (Please check the info calendar to be sure though!)

If you’ve already bought your tickets, try to go early. Going early an hour before the park opens (10am to 6pm) will be best as you can take your obligatory photo with the Universal Globe and have a low likelihood of being photobombed!.

What you should wear and bring?

Singapore can be hot and humid. Therefore dressing lightly and in comfortable clothing, and ready to do a lot of walking, is the way to go.

However, during rainy-season between the months of September to February, you should be prepared with a raincoat and protective waterproof bags (for your electronics and valuables!).

Available amenities

Fret not! USS is thoughtfully well-equipped for your needs. Available amenities in USS include:

1. Drinking water at water fountains around the park. So bring an empty waterbottle. Save money and stay hydrated!

Need to leave to get something from your hotel room? Reentering USS is not a problem. Just be sure to leave with a re-entry stamp on your hand and you’re good to go (And come back, of course).
