Today I woke up bright and early, jumped in the shower, threw on some comfortable clothes, woke everyone else up and ordered a taxi…It was time for Universal Studios. Universal is situated on Sentosa Island. You can either get a cable car over or get a taxi which drives over to the island on the boardwalk. As it was really drizzly this morning, we opted for the taxi.When we pulled up I was absolutely, positively, squealing with excitement!When you walked in, you walked straight onto Hollywood Boulevard…
Followed by Madagascar…See the parachuter hanging from the tree like in the movie?I think one of my favourite ‘worlds’ has to have been The Ancient World. My favourite ride which was Revenge of the Mummy was there and it was fantastic. The que can go on for about 2 hours but we were lucky with it being a miserable day, low season and we bought tickets that allowed you to get to the front of the que twice for each ride. New York was great too, there wasn’t many rides per say but it was really authentic!At the end of the day, we all lined the streets to watch the parade.
Marilyn came to say hello..So did…Some Hollywood dancers??The press made sure they were there, snapping away.The guys from Madagascar came along to join in on the fun.Chased by some dinosaurs that escaped from Jurassic ParkMy favourite were Dragon and Donkey!
After the parade left, so did we and headed back home for a gorgeous meal. Beef Wellington and all the trimmings…
It was a fantastic day and I can’t wait to go back.
Let me know if you’ve been to a Universal Studios anywhere in the world and what you thought.
