Universal Studios is the first theme park we have visited after so many days. We bought the tickets online. It entitles us to 1 day Universal Studios free on 2012 within 30 day from the first entry.
We printed our online purchase receipts, use the print out to gain entry directly. Remember to ask for a theme park map to begin with.
We started with the longest queue: Studio Tour. Everyone is loaded into a tram, 4 in a row. The tram driver is an extremely well trained Universal Studios’ guide, he or she will explain the history, entertain us and bring us around the different studios. You can see your tram driver from the screen projection in each carriage.
TIPS: I find it better to sit on the left hand side of the tram, as most of the stuff happen on the left.
All visitors are to remain seated throughout the 45 minutes tour. You would not be allow to step out of the transport unless you sign up for the VIP Experience.
Visitors get to see some street sets in Universal Studios. Scenes like City Hall, Cowboy’s town and Desperate Housewives’ houses. I am so tempted to jump out of the tram to camwhore. So pretty!
We also experience “natural” disasters created within the studios: flood, earthquake and plane crash. Whoa~~~
The second part of our Universal Studio trip is all the rides play. There will be an indicator outside each themed ride notifying us the waiting time. On average, we waited for 15 to 25 minutes in each station. Not so bad.
All these rides are exciting but not terrifying. But they are not on the extreme roller coaster type of thrill. So not to worry.
I love Mummy The Ride and Jurassic Park the most. Mummy ride is in a complete pitch black while Jurassic Park plunges down into the water towards the end.
WARNING: Jurassic Park ride has a tenancy to get wet.
There are also shows performed at a specific showtime. Do check out their slots.
We only get to meet Scooby Doo on its parade walk. The rest, neh~~~
