Universal Studios Singapore - Far Far Away

One of the top attractions in Universal Studios Singapore is the Land of Far Far Away, which houses the Shrek 4-D adventure.

Just like any other Universal Studios zone, the attention to detail in the buildings was literally impressive as if I really had landed in Far Far Away.

While I'm pleased that Singapore is getting more tourists dollars, I'm not very happy about the crowds. Despite the long queue, I was hesitant to get in line as this was the ride we mainly came to the park for. I think it took us around an hour to enter the castle.

From the moment we stepped inside, we were warmly welcomed by King Harold and Queen Lilian. A series of fascinating posters of Shrek and gang are also located within the waiting area.

And here we are at the movie theatre, complete with specially-created "OgreVision" glasses, as we joined Princess Fiona and Shrek in their fairy tale kingdom. The seats jolt you at all the appropriate times and you are bombarded with bursts of fine water spray and vibrations to give you the excellent 4D experience. We enjoyed every minute of it and it's something not to be missed if you're in Universal Studios.

Coming out from the Shrek 4-D Adventure, we happily made our way to the Fairy godmother's potion shop where you can find a variety of Shrek memorabilia, fantasy candies, drinks, colorful elixirs and gifts.

There was also a Magic Potion Spin in the world of Shrek but my kids were too big for this.

Fairy Godmother's juice bar is also located in this corner where you can choose a unique concoction of magical potions.

Another cool attraction we enjoyed was ‘Donkey Live’ show featuring Shrek's annoying sidekick, the Donkey. As always, he never fails to amaze and entertained anyone with his quick-witted sense of humour. Hosted by Hook, the show brings a lot of fun and joy to enlighten your day.


  1. What a lot of fun! I really enjoyed the Shrek films and think I might enjoy this. But I'm with you on the queues - aren't they a drag?

  2. Shrek is definitely a jolly green fella.

  3. It's amazing how all the Disney sites look so much alike and they all look like fun and they do tickle the imagination! Great captures for the day! Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Amazing photographic travel log ~ very creative ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  6. You managed to take picture in the movie theatre. When we went there some people got their cams sprayed with water & i suppose they didnt heed the simple instruction.

    "You've been warned" said the announcement just before the movie.

    Great shots!

  7. I don't like the crowd too...but what to do they come with the package we bought! :)

  8. Great tour. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  9. It would be a great place to visit but those crowds just put me off.

  10. I don't like congestion or waiting for long time,too. In spite of that, your tour looks very fun. The show must have been very very very great.
    Thank you for an amusing tour!
    Have a lovely week ahead!
