Continued from Universal Studios Singapore (1 of 2)
As of its soft opening, the Universal Studios (Singapore) offers different attractions themed as the Ancient Egypt, Far Far Away, Sci-Fi City, Madagscar, Hollywood, and New York.
The Ancient Egypt prides on the Revenge of the Mummy (you face warrior mummies in an indoor thriller roller coaster ride) and Treasure Hunters (you get to drive your own desert jeep through a manmade Egyptian excavation site). In the same area, a souvenir shop and restaurant are available, kookily named as Carter’s Curiousities and Oasis Spice Cafe, respectively.

Impression on its soft opening, ticketing and theme park operating hours
Although Universal Studios (Singapore) is still on its soft opening (i.e. rides, shows and other operational aspects of the park are subject to being modified and improved as needed), we enjoyed it more than its rival theme park. We purchased our tickets a week in advance (online) when we heard that these are normally sold out earlier. This, we proved to be so. We intentionally timed our visit on a Friday since the park is operating from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM everyday, except for Fridays and Saturdays when it is open until 10:00 PM (only then the Lake Hollywood Spectular or fireworks at the lake is held).
