The much-delayed boat ride Madagascar: A Crate Adventure will open at Universal Studios Singapore on May 16, 2011, the park has confirmed.
The opening date is listed on the park's official website, as reported by Screamscape. Madagascar: A Crate Adventure will open some 14 months late, having originally been scheduled to open alongside the rest of Universal Studios Singapore in March 2010.
Madagascar: A Crate Adventure will be an heavily-themed attraction featuring the animated characters from the Dreamworks movies. The river boat ride's plot will center around Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as they take on the foosas with the aid of the devious penguins. Universal says the ride will feature "animated figures, digital projection, evocative sound, and special effects that create a one-of-a-kind, funny and fun family ride".
Madagascar: A Crate Adventure has been plagued by technical problems since construction began in 2009. Screamscape has reported that this led to the complete replacement of the ride's fleet of boats, as well as the removal of several scenes from its course.
