Battlestar Galactica ride in Universal Studios Singapore closed due to glitch

Battlestar Galactica ride in Universal Studios Singapore closed due to glitch

SINGAPORE : Universal Studios Singapore has closed a popular ride, Battlestar Galactica, for the time being due to a technical glitch.


80kg dummies filled with water have been going on daily joy rides on the Battlestar Galactica to test out the roller coasters.

The ride will be closed for at least a few days for a complete inspection.

The spokesman for the theme park, Robin Goh, said a technical problem was detected on one of the ride vehicles during the park's daily pre-opening testing on Thursday morning.

"In keeping with our commitment to employee and guest safety, the ride was immediately closed and will not be operating until we determine the cause and solution," Goh said.

Experts from the ride's design, engineering and manufacturing company are assisting the ride and show team in the inspection.

"No one was injured and all the proper authorities were notified, which is a standard Universal Studios Singapore operating policy," said Goh.

He stressed that employee and guest safety is the number one priority.

All rides go through a daily series of detailed inspections and testing before the park opens to ensure that all the safety systems are functioning properly.

"No ride will be operated at any time unless it has passed all daily inspections and tests," Goh said.

"We understand some guests may be disappointed. However, the safety of our employees and guests remains our top priority," he added.

Police said the safety authorities will work with Universal Studios Singapore to determine the cause of the problem.

It must also recommend rectification measures and re-certify the safety of the ride, before the licence can be reinstated.

Not enough safety checks?

Battlestar Galactica grounded

Battlestar Galactica grounded
By Sherilyn Lam, Multimedia Journalist


IT HAS been just over a week since Universal Studios Singapore opened to excited theme park enthusiasts, but their cries of disappointment were heard not long after. The highly anticipated red and blue railed Battlestar Galactica screeched to a halt due to a technical glitch.

While many weren't too happy about it, some of the visitors remained fairly optimistic. Like one man who said that he was disappointed but 'the other rides made up for it'.

For the same reason, Universal Studios Singapore remains an attractive theme park to tourists and Singaporeans alike, who told RazorTV what their favourite rides were. The entrance fees and queues proved to be acceptable as well.

Unsurprisingly, some visitors were not without complaints, ranging from the short opening hours to the hot weather.

However, as Universal Studios Singapore is only in its soft-opening stage, there's more to look forward to in the months to come.
