New "Puss in Boots" Coaster in USS!

Update 11/18:

Today I spotted the ride vehicle on the track!!!
It is a suspended car consisting of  3 rows with room for 2 riders per row.
The exterior of the vehicle is brown and the inside is bright orange.
I am not sure if they have already started testing though.

In the meantime, construction workers are installing more theming elements to the ride.
Check out the update below!

Halloween Horror Nights 4 Review

Halloween Horror Nights is back to Universal Studios Singapore!
HHN 4 is a fun event that builds on the successes of the last three iterations. However, there are things we like about it and things that we are not so crazy about. Please follow me to find out!

Please understand that this review of the event is very personal and only represents my own opinion.
Besides, my writing is quite poor so I will let the photos do most of the talking.

Universal Studios Beijing to Open in 2019

Today I was delighted to find this news article by Los Angeles Times about the new Universal Studios opening in Beijing in 2019. The project has been in development for quite some time and it is nice to see it finally getting a proper announcement. 
You may read the full article here: Universal Studios to open Beijing theme park in 2019
With the announcement and press conference, a concept art for the park has also been released and it contains some really interesting details. Let's take a look.

UPDATE: Thank you, Alain from Disney & More. I have updated the post with much clearer pictures.

This Week in USS #6: Two New Shows!

This week we checked out two new shows in the park!

Sept. 20 is the premiere of Sesame Street Musical "When I Grow Up". 
It was a very cheerful show, and younger guests seemed to love it. But for me, it was a bit disappointing. The show basically is just one song and is very much similar to the street performance version of the same song.
I hope that this is just a filler before the park gets its second actual musical. (How about the 30-version of Wicked, which was played at USJ for some time?)
