  1. Are you serious, is that the location of the ride judging from the near map photo. It's so close to the highway, for sure in its initial 6months of opening as it towers less than 100m from the highway. It will cause accidents as people slow to look at it. the land located near (lethal weapon) and Wild west doesn't look super important, maybe those buildings can go and they can fit some things in there. PLease note I am a casual enthusiast

    Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2017

    So in this format there would be a color bar such as Red For superman escape covering most of April, and another ride such as wild west Blue. The two different color bars are easily identifiable and visually it can be worked out easily what days all attractions run, otherwise try visit the maintenance page now and work out the best time to visit....many schedules overlap.
  3. It's really cute watching you guys get excited at these early stages... ...now show me more pictures

    Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2017

    It's been nearly 10 years since I last visited the strip of Australian parks. Sometimes I remember about this forum and log in for my yearly lurk to find out the gossip of up coming attractions. I noticed Movie world Web page has the whole year of scheduled maintenance listed, but just in text form. I was wondering If there is/ I should make/You should make a color coded calendar info graphic that would have each month listed in a grid of maintenance for each theme park, so guests can work out a time to visit where all attractions are running. This calendar Could be sticky pasted on the top of the forums or main page. Something like this
  5. Yeah I missed the sesame street dark coaster, they should get a magic show in that theater
  6. Friend lives in singapore, advertised in the news paper is re opening tomorrow
  7. We also did the 400m flying fox, which you had to buy as a bundle with a 4d log film and the fox, for $50 it was weak. I'd pay low 20's for the flying fox and skip the movie alltogether. The indoor sky diving at iFLY was awesome, but excluding the brief and the fun of watching others the price you actually pay for yourself to fly in the wind tunnel is almost ONE DOLLAR A SECOND.
  8. WOW, it's that time again where I remember about those forums i used to read ten years ago, unfortunately since logging in today it seems much of my post history and trips reports have been lost, possibly due to forum upgrades through the years. It's to be noted that whatever I am about to write is exclusively for here, and I may return to read it as a diary in the future so I hope it is not lost. USS is my second international theme park the first being holiday park in germany. I had been staying in singapore for a week as a holiday before spending a few nights on sentosa, and of course a full day at USS would be in order. This review is for Thursday the 7th of May. The night before and the first night on the island, I walked down to the globe and gate to boost my excitement. The epic motion picture score in the background builds the atmosphere lingering the area. I also took advantage for this quiet time to pose 1 on 1 with the spinning globe before snapping out the canon 100d for more artsy gate shots. Prior to the trip I had also done considerable research on trip advisor, google, and emailing the park wondering if anything would be closed for maintenance, as there was no obvious info on the website unlike australian parks where info of closure is posted months in advance. I of course knew the BSG was not functional and looking on google maps and the size of the park wondering if you can really fill a whole day there. The next morning we arranged to meet prior to opening time at the gate. I had a feeling they would open the gates early if queues were building, however there were maybe a few hundred people before gates were open at 9,45am. We wandered along main street to the central point and worked anticlockwise taking a few selfies here and there.. I specifically left the DSLR at home and traded it for a sony point and shoot which stays in my pocket on all rides. I note that all retail shops are operational but think the educated park goer would only ever purchase items before heading home rather than holding it all day. Transformers seemed to be the first major stop in our anti clockwise adventure. I note the Insanely long queue area and estimate waits at 90 minutes if full. But for now at 10am it's 5 minutes. I own the first recent movie on dvd and really enjoyed it but I know little about the franchise. I would say the technology behind the ride is pretty amazing, I was fooled to feel like I was falling towards the end of the ride, but with all the hype I was a little underwhelmed and I’d rate it 7/10. We only rode it once more later in the day to a 15 minute queue, the 2nd ride I tried to observe the track layout and technology a little more but i really have no idea on the track layout. I did notice wearing the glasses creates a almost perfect letterbox of vision to only the screen/projections, the frame of the glasses blocking the roof. Exit through $$$ and we are back heading anti clockwise. Photos were taken of BSG. It looks ready to go in a way, clear signage and nothing covered up, Empty trains were spotted several times during the day, possible testing?, Also located close by was a standard spinning cha cha type ride, with its own theming, skipped it because it's super common. One of the buildings at the base of BSG looked like it could have a graviton in it due to the shape but its probably a gift shop with UFO theming. Next approaching was the lavishly themed mummy precinct. I did love the movies at being 10-12 at the time was quite scary to watch. Amusing how people struggle to read signs and that no bag or loose items can be taken on the ride, 2-3 staff all day here pointing the sheep towards the free lockers. Again a maze of dark corridors to reach the station, 5 minute wait one station side operating. This is possibly the best themed ride I have ever been on, nothing compares to the first time for a ride like this better than the SDSC even in consideration of 10 year technology gap. The launch up the hill was exciting following the fast section, staff enthusiastically clap you to the station however less so as the day progresses. I rode a further 6 times later in the day, with zero waits and empty trains after 5pm. My favourite ride. Next up was Jurassic park River rapids, about a 20 minute wait quite early in the day, was keen to polish it off incase of afternoon storm and closure. Just the usual rapid ride really, rode only once, got one leg quite wet. Sometime soon came Shrek 4D. the pre show was a little long and i have a feeling it could be the same show I’ve seen at movieworld back in 2007. Always good to head into shows like this to escape the heat, exit through gift shop that is shared by other attractions. Singapore Spend consume spend. Heading back to Jurassic park for the canopy flyer and lunch. 5 minute Line the ride is very quickly over, but nice to feel the wind on your legs. Food and drink is not as expensive as australia, Water under $3 and singapore chicken rice about $12, better than a greasy burger. A little later headed to the waterworld show, a movie which I watched over and over as a 10year old on VHS, show was about half full, Sat in the wet zone and enjoyed the pre show bantering and crowd warm ups, as for the show, the plane was the most exciting part. 7/10 There are lots of young Families here today with kids, the fixed track car ride near mummy a 30 minute wait. Now we are filling in the gaps, the donkey show was next, this was a little surprising. Again beautiful airconditioning inside, the show started off a few light laughs, and seemed scripted, the live actor appearing to speak between the gaps of a pre recorded donkey, however then donkey started accurately pointing out countries and clothing of member of the audience, and then my friend was chosen to go to the front, his questions, name and things all said by donkey, in a perfect Eddie murphy voice. I don’t know how they did it! Next we were heading to the new Puss in boots ride, but it had just broken down, we never make it back again to try it, even after later spotting it in operation again from a distance. I later watched on ride footage and decided that will do. Next it was a hop skip and jump to the small coaster by the water, descent first drop time and with views to match I reached for my camera but was told not to. Rode once only similar to road runner coaster at MW. Next we finished the circle with the slow boat ride, before heading for a milkshake at the american diner, then sesame street happens to be beginning so off we went. More AIR CON BLISS in a nice theatre but the show is really only for kids. Since we were all kiddled out we didn’t try the other Kid show next door but did stop for Lights Camera Action. I was expecting something like the old soundstage at Movieworld. The attraction itself might be outdated since I feel everything would be Done in green screen, but there were a few surprises and the water out of the building looked amazing. We headed home at around 6,30pm. After some basic Merchandise, I have an Idea,I like to see a theme park, for One week, Drop the prices for Onride photos from say $20 to $7, and see if you can actually make more money through volume of sales rather than x30 mark up. It was a great day and Time went fast, I just reckon they need two more big adult rides but they are tight for space.
  9. Disappointed that the publicity images give the illusion that it s a vertical loop when in fact it looks like 55degrees for the videos i watched on youtube, with the manufacturers name in the search field. Of course I knew nothing about this style of slide until my monthly visit to parkz.
