Universal Studios Singapore releases Battlestar Galactica videos, ticket prices

Universal Studios Singapore logo

Universal Studios Singapore has released video footage of the Battlestar Galactica attraction expected to open with the park in 2010.

Located in the Sci-Fi City area of the park, Battlestar Galactica features dueling rollercoasters (Human and Cyclon) in a similar concept to Dueling Dragons at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Unlike Dueling Dragons, though, it features two distinct types of rollercoaster - an inverted rollercoaster (Cyclon) and a sit-down steel rollercoaster (Human).

The Cyclon (red) coaster will include intense manoeuvres including an inverted loop, a cobra roll and a helix spiral. The Human (blue) coaster is designed to be a less intense ride suitable for families and includes no inversions - although it will subject riders to greater G-forces than the Cyclon ride. Both coasters will feature a launched start rather than a chain lift, and Battlestar Galactica will be the tallest dueling rollercoaster in the world when it opens.

The park has also announced its ticket prices, which will be S$66 ($47.50) for adults and S$48 ($35.50) for children. As at Universal's US parks, Express passes will be available allowing holders to skip the lines for attractions, with prices ranging for S$32 ($23) to S$118 ($85).

Overall, Universal Studios Singapore is set to feature some 24 rides and attractions when it opens in early 2010. Details of the park's other attractions can be found in TPT's recent news story.
