5 Fantastic Attractions Of Universal Studios Singapore You Shouldn’t Miss

The long wait is finally over and from my office window I already see the daily roller coaster test rides with itchy feed and the urge to just swim over and hop on one of the rides.
Soon the Universal Studios Singapore will open their gates to the public and to mouth water your Amusement Park senses even more.

Note:
The official opening date for the Universal Studios Singapore hasn’t been announced yet, planned is early 2010

1. Battle Star Galactica Roller coaster

Singapore Universal Studios Battlestar Galactica The Battle Star Galactica Roller coaster is the biggest and most unique dueling roller coasters at Universal Studios world wide, tipping at 42.5m (140ft).
Themed after the famous Science Fiction show Battlestar Galactica, the ride features two different roller coasters, riding on different tracks (Suspended Track (Blue) and one Seated Track (Red) dueling each other during the ride. The coaster will be launched from their stations at high speed instead of the traditional chain lift. Each coaster feature either several inversions, a zero-g roll, a Cobra roll, corkscrews, vertical loops and near collisions mere inches apart.

2. Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure

There are two similar rides in other Universal Studios but this will be the first of its kind, featuring a whole “world” of Dinosaurs and interesting effects along the boat ride.
