Seven Theme Sectors
When stepping into this colorful and glamorous movie industry world, your senses will first be struck by rows of restaurants, stores, and the Hollywood Theater designed based on the famous Pantages Theater in the heart of the real Hollywood in Los Angeles, USA. There is the classic hamburger house, Myers Fast Food, that was featured in the movie American Graffiti, as well as a number of classic American restaurants typical of the last century. Visitors will feel the thrill of experiencing a world of the past as they walk on down the Avenue of Stars lined with tall buildings and huge palm trees. The avenue, recreating the well-known Hollywood Boulevard, is magical and alluring where perhaps a superstar is just around the corner.
New York Sector
Walking down the street of an edgy and romantic New York City with dozens of classic movie scenes passing in front of their eyes, visitors will be completely enchanted by the most prosperous and most modern international metropolis in the United States. The feeling and pure energy of the city is emanated by the most classic symbols of Manhattan such as the dramatic skyline, elaborate neon lights, famous landmark buildings, and more. In addition, there is also a film studio in this sector. The Movie Studio for Special Effects, created by the movie master director Steven Spielberg (who helped produce films such as E.T., the Back to the Future trilogy, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Shrek, Jurassic Park, Transformers, and many more classics), lets visitors see how soul-stirring movie moments are made behind the scenes. “Studio 28” can be used to make real films. Last but not least, guests can enjoy traditional New York steak and BBQ at KT’s Grill restaurant, or iconic New York pizza at Loui's NY Pizza Parlor.
Science Fiction City
In this sector, the future is just in front of your eyes. This future metropolis designed with unusual but innovative ideas, is filled with all kinds of incredibly advanced science and technology. By contrast, there are also recreations of many ancient creatures and the ruins of long lost cultures which attract thousands of visitors from all over the world. There are also numerous life forms from the unknown future, making this sector a fascinating prediction of the future world. The entire Science City complex is located in a huge underground power plant that takes advantage of many types of natural power such as wind power, solar energy, and hydro power to generate electricity and provide continuous power for the sector. On top of the highest double-track jet coaster in the world, named Battlestar Galactica, guests can take part in a fight between humans and robots. In all, this sector of Universal Studios Singapore is a grand combination of nature’s power and the future of science and technology.
Ancient Egypt Sector
The ancient pyramids and obelisks of the Golden Age, which stand erect in spite of centuries of time gone by, bring visitors to the ancient Egypt of the 1930s. At that time, many infamous mausoleums of the old Pharaohs were excavated, and terrifying curses were released into the world. Guests can follow the footprints of those brave and pioneering archaeologists, and break the pyramids’ secrets with curiosity and wisdom. Whether eating or drinking in the Mediterranean-style restaurant, finding replicas of ancient Egyptian antiques in the Carter Treasure House, or experiencing the breath-taking Mummy Revenge Rollercoaster, visitors will surely have an unforgettable adventure suited for only the brave.
The Lost Word
There are two leading themes in the Lost World: “Jurassic Park,” and “Water World.” Both are very popular among the fans of Universal Studios Singapore. “Jurassic Park” is based on the classic movie Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg. Visitors can enter another world of ancient times when countless dinosaurs ruled the earth and run across the prehistoric tropical rainforest alongside dinosaurs as their company. The Jurassic River Safari, recently redesigned, is full of adventures and excitement. On the other side, the explosive environment of “Water World” is based on the post-apocalyptic movie Water World where guests can experience state-of-the-art special effect scenes, such as dramatic columns of flaming fire and soaring water, that can only be seen in Universal Studios Singapore.
The Remote Kingdom
The Remote Kingdom is based on the Shrek movies produced by DreamWorks Animation studio. It is a combination of reality and the fantasy of a completely dream world. Apart from the 40-meter high “Remote Kingdom Castle,” visitors can also find Shrek’s moor cottage, wander freely on the bright Romeo Street in the Remote Kingdom for a chance to run into Shrek or the beautiful Princess Fiona, and go to the Knight Club which is the hottest spot in town. Also, guests can sing along with Donkey at the Donkey Show, wonder in amazement at the 4D Shrek Adventures Show, and find magic potions at Fairy Godmother’s Potion Shop in the magnificent castle. Finally, explore the wild restaurants in this sector whose magic-themed food is inspired by the animated characters in Shrek’s Remote Kingdom.
In this sector, visitors can follow the four leading characters—Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo, and Melman the giraffe—from the movie Madagascar produced by DreamWorks Animation studio. The Madagascar Wood Box Rafting Journey is the first of its kind in the world where guests can explore the mysterious island of Madagascar. The four characters will guide visitors into the luxuriant and lush primeval forest enhanced with sound effects, special effects, and advanced technologies. On the extraordinary journey, guests can assist King Julian, the leader of the lemurs, and help him beat his natural enemy, the fossa cat-like animals, at the volcanic vent which could erupt at any time. After the victory, all the visitors will be invited to King Julian’s dancing ball and encouraged to go for a round on the carousels. Recharge with the taste of delicious snacks at the hippo snack stall, or relax with a brisk cold drink at Marty the zebra’s café.
