My Afternoon With Kung Fu Panda
Last week I was lucky enough to be able to spend the afternoon at Universal Studios, Singapore. It was only a taster but we plan to go back soon and spend the day there. Despite that though I still managed to go on a couple of rides, see a show and take in the sights. It was great! It seems fairly compact which I don't think is any bad thing as it means you can probably get back to do things again or to go on something when the crowds have thinned out. I haven't been to any of the other Universal Studios so I have nothing to compare it to (other than Disneyland in California) but my afternoon was just as much fun as my trip to Disneyland a few years back. It's certainly somewhere that adults can have just as much fun as children. Perhaps even a little bit more as there are no height restrictions to worry about for a start!
Of the couple of rides I did manage to get on 'The Revenge of the Mummy' ride was brilliant fun, as long as you don't mind roller coasters and plunging at an alarming speed in to a pitch black tunnel that is. The queues were not that bad either, though I guess at the weekends and on holidays it probably gets worse. Oh and did I see Kung Fu Panda whilst I was there? Yes I did but there was not enough time to queue up for a photo with him - maybe next time. I'm looking forward to my return visit already!
