Universal Studios Singapore to open $4.4 billion resort’s gates in March


MUMBAI: Universal Studios Singapore has concluded its sneak peek week and continues its opening process with team members, invited guests and charitable organizations building up to start welcoming the public in March.


The $4.4 billion Resorts World Sentosa – Universal Studios Singapore will bring to life the best movie-themed attractions packed within seven zones ranging from Hollywood, Far Far Away to Sci-Fi City and The Lost World.


As part of its staff-appreciation perks, the park’s first guests will be team members of Resorts World Sentosa, who will be the first to enjoy Universal Studios Singapore with their families from 13 March, before the park opens to the public on 18 March.


Resorts World Sentosa executive chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay said, "Universal Studios Singapore wrapped up a week of Chinese New Year sneak peeks to great reviews, and we are excited to be gearing up to take our first guests on the rides, which are naturally the highlight of the park. This is the region’s only Universal Studios theme park, and it will be a tourism crown jewel for not just Singapore, but Asia as a whole."


Universal Parks & Resorts chairman and CEO Tom Williams added, "We are thrilled to be taking the next step toward a grand opening, and we are excited that, at Universal Studios Singapore, guests from throughout the region will get to experience the excitement and adventure our parks are so well known for around the world."


Ticket sales for Universal Studios Singapore’s soft opening phase will begin on 10 March. Since it is possible that certain attractions may become temporarily unavailable during the preview phase as Universal Studios Singapore continues its technical and creative adjustments, ticket prices will be partially rebated by shopping and dining vouchers valid for use at Universal Studios Singapore.
