Our World - Universal Studios Singapore (USS)

This is the first Universal Studios I've been to and glad it didn't disappoint me. Although I find the theme park's layout rather small, it's the best experience rolled into one. There are plenty of street entertainments, thrilling rides and other attractions that can keep you busy all day.

The theme park consist of seven unique themed zones based on hit blockbuster movies and TV shows which include Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Madagascar and Far, Far Away.

We arrived there right in time when it opened at 10am but as expected, there were long queues at the ticket booths. While waiting for my hubby to collect ticket passes, I spent my time wandering around shooting anything that interests me.

Here is the famous spinning globe, one of the most photographed icons in any Universal theme park. It was a weekday when we visited USS and the park was packed with tourists throughout the day.

This was taken not too far from the Sentosa's casino. I love the intricate details of the roof.

And there's Hershey's and Reese's calling out my name and enthusiastically waving at me. How cool. :)
