|Snowy Christmas at Santa's Land|
We love to visit theme parks during Christmas. During this time, theme parks are usually dress up with a huge Christmas Tress and special programs to mark this special festive period. Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is no exception. Since this is the first time we are visiting the park during Christmas season, we had huge expectations of the events lined up.
Our mood was almost doused by pouring rain storm while we were there in the afternoon. Thankfully with a little Christmas magic, the clouds cleared in the evening. Frankly we think visiting the park in the evening is totally awesome. With lesser crowds (due to the rain), we managed to sit on all the rides we targeted and best of all enjoyed the Christmas line up of USS in its full splendor.
Snowy Christmas in Santa's Land will be at RWS USS from now till 4th January . Park will be open late on most days, so do check the schedule here. In the meantime, take a peek at what is in store this festive season in USS.
Snowy Christmas at Santa's land
|Snow at Universal Studios|
There is snow and there is Snowy Christmas at Universal Studios. There are 10 shows daily in 3 zones. Hollywood, New York and Sci-Fi City will be snowing every day. We were amazed when the 'snow' falls on the hour. It is recommended you visit at night. With the blue hues to accompany the snow, you will not be faulted if you think you have been transported to New York for Christmas.
With a huge tree covered with Sesame Street ornaments, New York is the recommended spot to be when snow falls at USS.
10 shows daily
Sesame Street Saves Christmas
|Sesame Street Saves Christmas|
The Christmas themed Sesame Street show, Sesame Street saves Christmas is back.
The show had recently bagged The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions 2014 Brass Ring Award for Live Entertainer- Best Overall Production.
This can only mean one thing, it is a great show!
Follow the Sesame Street gang as they save Christmas with a little help from Super Grover. The show is filled with familiar Christmas songs so everyone can sing along!
