Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

After the opening day of Universal Studios Singapore on March 18, Shin Min Daily News reported three main issues that visitors had with the theme park.

#1: Opening hours are too short

The opening hours of the park are from 9am to 6pm. With only nine hours to cover a total of 24 attractions, visitors are worried they will not have sufficient time to enjoy themselves.

A 38 year-old housewife who brought her children to the theme park was not aware that it closed at 6pm.

She thought it closed at 8pm. She said the closing time seemed too early as compared to theme parks overseas which open until 8pm or 9pm.

#2: Inconvenient method of booking tickets

Entrance tickets are available for purchase online or via telephone booking. Same day tickets are not available during the soft launch period of the park's opening.

Some tourists expressed their unhappiness at this because those unaware of the soft launch period would not be able to visit the park if they did not plan in advance.

#3: Expensive entrance tickets

The annual Superstar Pass costs S$1098, and is valid for entry any day of the year.

The annual Fun Pass costs S$318 and is valid for entry any day of the year except for weekends during the school holidays and long weekends around public holidays.

While the Superstar Pass is more convenient, the Fun Pass appears to be better value for money.

An adult ticket costs S$66, while a child ticket costs S$48. A visit to the park by a family of four would cost S$228, an amount that may be a little high for some households.

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

9-6 its too short la... At night maybe after dinner time, people may still want to chill out and have fun. The price... hmmm, i rather get the 300+ 1... In the long term wise, it is cheaper.

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

They should extend the hours. I been to Disneyland in HKG & Tokyo, they closed after 9pm.

As for the price of the tickets, its actually quite reasonable.

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

havent been there so unsure. would be nice if they implemented speed passes. went to disneyland with a friend once. waited over an hour in a line for a ride. little did i know till it was finally our turn, it was a kids storybook no adrenaline ride..... a slow like 1km/hr ride narrating a story......... what a freaking waste of our time...

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

they need to control 2 issues.
operating hours and crowd control.
they should extend to 11pm so that people can just take the last train home.
for the crowd control, i hope they restrict the number of ah tiongs to like 100 pax per day?

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

The operating hours are definately too short.
6pm isn't even primetime yet.

I seen that you have been making direct or indirect discrimination around the forum.
Please don't do that. There are always black sheeps among a group of people.

Re: Three complaints about Universal Studios Singapore

the ticket price is consider okay already, not expensive at all. Compared to you taking a plane over to other country's universal studio and still must pay entrance ticket, definitely going to universal studios singapore is a much much cheaper option.

only thing i think is bad, opening hours is too short, hope they will extend it
