Part of the sprawling Resorts World Sentosa complex, Universal Studios Singapore mixes a variety of concepts imported from Universal's US parks with a selection of all-new creations. Unlike the Universal Studios parks in Hollywood and Florida, it drops any pretence of being a working movie studio, and instead focuses on placing its guests directly "in the movies". The park boasts six heavily-themed lands: Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away and Magagascar. Highlights include the Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride roller coaster, the dueling Battlestar Galactica coasters, the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure boat ride and the all-action Transformers: The Ride.
Universal Studios Singapore threw open its gates for the first time in March 2010. It suffered a difficult first year in operations, with Battlestar Galactica forced to close for much of it and Madagascar: A Crate Adventure failing to open at all (the boat ride eventually debuted in May 2011, some 14 months late). It hit its stride in 2011, though, with the debut of Transformers The Ride, and a number of significant new additions are planned for the next few years.
