Universal Studios Singapore has announced that it will open to the public on March 18, although guest numbers will be limited as part of a "soft opening" period.
Tickets must be purchased in advance (same-day tickets will not be available), and can be bought online through Universal Studios Singapore's website, by phone (+65 6577 8899) or at one of the park's tickets booths. Tickets will be available from 9am on March 10, costing around US$47 for adults and US$34 for children aged 12 and under.
Universal Studios Singapore has warned potential guests that attractions may be in and out of action during the soft opening period, as technical adjustments are made to them. To help ease any disappointment, guests will receive a $15 voucher which is valid for use in shops and restaurants inside the park. The limit on the number of guests inside at any one time will be eased as the park ramps up to normal operations.
Ahead of the public opening, staff and families at Resorts World Sentosa (where Universal Studios Singapore is based) will be able to experience the attractions from March 13. This follows a recent preview period in which guests were allowed into the park but were not able to ride any attractions.
The latest Universal park features 7 themed zones and 24 rides and attractions. Some, such as The Mummy Returns and Shrek 4-D, are based on existing attractions at the company's U.S. parks. However, there are a number of unique new attractions including dueling rollercoasters themed around the Battlestar Galactica TV series and a boat ride based on Dreamworks' popular Madagascar animated movies.
