Day Six / 6th Dec
SENTOSA HERE WE COME 🙂
Sentosa Island is a place I had not really been to – not properly anyway – the only time I had been there was when Glen and I went to that wedding, but since we just drove straight to the hotel and it was nighttime I don’t think it properly counts!
Sentosa has MANY things to do, way more than you could see in one day! We spent our day at Universal Studios, which is SO GOOD, and you can definitely spend a whole day there!!
We set off early and made our way over!
We’re hereeee! Universal Studios Singapore has 6 zones which are themed with a truly beautiful attention to detail: LA, New York, Sci Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Jurassic Park and Madagascar. All of the zones were cool, but the coolest thing was that it was like each of us had our own personal zone!
Sarah’s house: New York
New York is my house because it has Sesame Street AND all the retro-ness!!!!!!! I was so excited I couldn’t stand still 🙂
New York was amazing during the day, but let’s skip ahead a little and take a look at New York by night too shall we? 🙂
I CAN’T EVEN HANDLE IT 🙂
Oh man, fake New York. You’re pretty fab.
On to the next zone!
Caleb’s house: Sci-Fi City
An Interlude: Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park was an unexpected surprise – it was insanely good. What made it so excellent was the fact that it was very disconcertingly meta. It wasn’t a Jurassic Park themed section of Universal Studios, it was ACTUALLY JURASSIC PARK. Well, not actually. But it fooled us pretty good 😛 The most confusing was when you go on the rides, which have their own storylines, and you realise that you’re in a story within a story within a story and suddenly what’s real and what’s not becomes very confusing!! Like the rescue equipment beside the river rapids ride. Real? Fake? So confusing!!! Another thing they did an excellent job of was making it look all fun by day and pretty spooky by night!
AND THIS ONE:
I don’t know about you but I’m feelin like maybe I won’t put my head there at night 😛
Becca’s house: Far Far Away
The Fairy Godmother had a great shop there!
WOW UNIVERSAL STUDIOS. You exceeded our expectations. What an excellent time!
