Universal Studios Singapore hits 10 million visitor mark
Universal Studios Singapore welcomed its 10 millionth visitor on Thursday with much fanfare.Singaporean Ms Joanne Tan was greeted by Marilyn Monroe and Woody Woodpecker among other staff dressed up as famous celebrities or cartoon characters. She also received gifts worth more than $1,000 including an exclusive tour of the amusement park, a fully-paid for dinner and theme park merchandise."The surprise welcome made us feel like superstars, it felt like we were in the movies," said Ms Tan, 40, housewife who was planning a day-out for the family. "This is actually the first time we are visiting Universal Studios Singapore, so I am really excited."Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park that opened in March 2010 as an attraction at integrated resort Resorts World Sentosa. It offers 23 rides as well as shows and attractions.
How exciting that in 3 short years it hits 10,000,000 visitors! From what I see on Tumblr, Twitter, and other social networks is that the locals have really fallen in love with this park!
Here is to tens of millions of more guests!
Re: Universal Studios Singapore welcomes it's 10 millionth guest!
According to AECOM and TEA, Universal Studios Singapore has had roughly 3.5 million visitors in 2012, only about 70,000 more than in 2011. The report said USS's visitor number has stabilized.
I think that is not very impressive considering that USS opened Transformers: The Ride near the end of 2011. USH opened the same Transformers ride in May 2012 and took on 750,000 more visitors, a 15% increase.
A brand new ride and just 70,000 more people? If it happened elsewhere it would have been considered a huge disaster.
