    The lands seem very cool but I would have loved to see more "New" Rides. I hope they get a VERY good version of the mummy since the building looks twice as big as the one in Hollywood.

    Looks like it could be the most unique US park. It probably won't have the best lineup of attractions, but it will be unique nonetheless. The nice thing about this park is it's putting certain attractions in more appropriate settings compared to their current versions.

    Re: The full unveiling of Universal Studios Singapore

    Ok my thoughts from reading and seeing the map is that wow this park looks on the small side. I had hyped myself up to the point I was going to be blown away by Universal Studios Singapore, and while I'm certainly impressed, I was also a bit let down at the same time.

    My negative thoughts are that out of the 18 new attractions promised, only three actually seem to be worthy of a trip out to Singapore for. The Madagascar dark ride, Jurrassic Park water rapids, and the Battlestar Galactica Coaster. Although Jurrassic Park and the Coaster will probarely be a bit similar to attractions found in other US parks. On top of these three only Revenge of the Mummy would I add to the list of must see attractions. The rest of the park is filled full of carny type attractions, and shows. Also why is Shrek 3D opening here the movie is actually already dated because it was set before the second and third movies and could the park not come up with something more original than WaterWorld and that Monsters Musical show. I was considering a trip to check out the park but may end up holding out until Transformers opens in 2011.

    On the plus side at least this park seems to be caterting to fans of all cuisines with asian and western fare to be found though out the park. Take a look at this blog for more details
    Food Soul: Let’s Ride The Movies!!!
    The shops also look like they be selling location specific merchandise. Alex the Lion plushes in Madagascar and Dinosaur inspired beach towels in Jurrassic Park.

    My verdict is still very much open and I kind of want to see more, but first impression are a bit mix.
