  • New updates at Universal Singapore

    It's been quite some time, but there's some major news.

    First, pictures of the "Revenge of the Mummy" ride construction can be found on the official website itself.
    Singapore | e-News Bulletins - RWS Quarterly Update - Issue 06 | Resorts World at Sentosa

    2ndly, in the webcast on the same page, some interesting tibits :

    - the dueling coasters are theme to Battlestar Galactica
    - one is more intense with inversions and loops, the other more 'mild' with drops and bends.
    - The coasters are in the 'Sci-Fi City' area of the theme park. (together with transformers ?)
    - Family friendly rides in all areas of the part, like a Jeep ride thru egyptian ruins, etc

    Looks to be exciting.

      Although theming it to battlestar galactica seems a bit strange I do like the idea about the two different experience tracks. I'd love to do Dueling Dragons, but inversions can really bother me. I really wish one of the tracks was a much milder experience. I'd like to see that happen more often with thrill rides. I can finally enjoy Mission Space in Epcot due to them implementing that idea as well.

        I had an idea about a dueling ride for a battlestar themed ride, similar to spiderman, so it'll be interesting to see how this one turns out!

            Does this park also have a monorail?

              Wow ! Thanks for the update.

              BTW, the park is owned by Genting not Universal. Universal is a non-equity partner.

              But let's hope all the above is true.

                No. There used to be a monorail on sentosa island, but it's gone now.

                There is a 'Sentosa Express' light rail transport that brings you from the mainland to resorts world.

                  Wow! The webcast was really informative. I really want to check out Sci-Fi land as I am a HUGE fan of sci-fi! Battlestar Galactica battling coasters sounds awesome... just awesome.
