Just an update for you :
Resorts World at Sentosa adds new attractionsIn anticipation of the tourism boom for Singapore and Asia in the coming years, Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) is adding six extra attractions to up the ante on its destination appeal.
Among the new draws are two rides at Universal Studios Singapore. One of the rides, a coaster, is an addition to another coaster in the original plans to make up a pair. This improved attraction now pits two different roller coasters — one seated and one suspended — against each other in aerial combat. A high-speed launch and heart-pumping near-misses make these coasters unlike any other in the world. The second ride is perennial favourite E.T. Steven Spielberg's timeless classic is brought to life in a fantasy attraction that captures the charm of childhood and the thrill of flying on an intimate scale that's sure to delight grandkids and grandparents alike.
There will be four new shows featuring multi-media, light and sound effects, on top of the three public performances that RWS proposed in its bid for the Integrated Resort in 2006. Four-time Emmy award-winner Jeremy Railton will be designing several of these acts.
As a result of these enhancements, RWS has revised its budget from S$5.2 billion to S$6 billion. This new budget also takes into account contingencies, improvements made to hotels and resort design, as well as the transportation and access infrastructure in the Resort.
Can't wait for the opening.
