UNIVERSAL STUDIOS SINGAPORE
& Resorts World at Sentosa
Sentosa Island, Singapore
Genting International, Star Cruises, Universal Studios
General Resort News - (12/31/18) An all new attraction opened at Resorts World Sentosa last month called HeadRock VR. As the name suggests, the focus of this new interactive attraction is a variety of VR style experiences… 11 of them to be exact. The experiences range from simple basic VR experiences like VR Room, Robin Hood (VR Archery), Beat Saber or a basic zombie shooter game, and then move up into more adventurous items that blend in motion platforms you ride on. For example, on “Extreme Train” riders sit in what looks almost like a mine train style coaster car that bounces about. In “Jungle Rafting” they ride in a rubber raft, or even go through Storm Blizzard while riding a virtual dog sled. There are even a couple of experiences that you get strapped into a harness and pulled up in the air for a little freefall and bounce action while taking on a virtual jungle in one or an encounter with the hot magma from a volcano in the other.

???? - New Attraction - Rumor Only - (6/10/17) It's been a few years now since we've seen a new major attraction added to Universal Studios Singapore, so many are wondering about what might be next? Would you believe that Harry Potter may be under consideration? I'm hearing that it is being discussed, though to build a Wizarding World of Harry Potter would take up a considerable amount of space, and something in this small park would have to go to make way.
So where would it go? If they opt to move ahead with it, I'm hearing that the land of Far Far Away would be removed to make way for Hogwarts Castle. It currently takes up a large section of the park but offers little in the way of major attractions, featuring only a kiddie coaster, the Magic Potion Spin kiddie wheel, a couple of small theater shows (Donkey Live & Shrek 4D). It is interesting that it does also feature the park's newest attraction, Puss in Boots' Giant Journey, but that could be given a Potter themed makeover perhaps, along with converting the Enchanted Airways kiddie coaster into another Flight of the Hippogriff coaster.
So will it happen? Time will tell, though with the way that Comcast's ownership of NBC/Universal has been going, there may first need to be some business dealings taken care of first to allow them to possibly take over control of the theme park, as the Singapore park is the only one now not fully owned by the company at this time. If that happens to pass, then I would think Potter's arrival would almost be a sure thing to happen, because the addition of Harry Potter always comes with huge profits soon following.
