Universal Studios Singapore celebrated its 5th anniversary today – wow…time sure whizzes by quickly!
Just for this special day, the first family who enters the park will be welcomed in style, flanked by some of the park’s popular characters. Limited edition Studio Guides (containing special anniversary stickers), limited edition badges and anniversary cupcakes are given to visitors to commemorate this event.
When I arrived at the park, I noticed the entrance archway with an Easter theme had an extra centrepiece. I had missed the earlier fanfare with the first family as there were delays on the North East Line (NEL) due to a power failure at Buangkok. Anyway, if you’re interested, you can view photos of the opening fanfare on RWS’ facebook page.
I was glad that I managed to get a picture with some of the bigwigs who oversee the park operations and attractions (they’ve been working here since the park first opened)! ^_^
From Left to Right: Judy, Sean, me and John. I guess I’m probably in John’s black book cos whenever I see him at the park, I’ll always bug him about when BSG will be re-opening (sorry John, but I need my coaster fix! LOL…).
The 5th anniversary logo can be found in the shop displays.
These were some of the freebies given out – limited edition studio guides, which contained a sticker sheet, were available at the usual locations after the park entrance. Easter eggs containing sweets were given out by the park’s crew during the first half hour of the park’s opening and they ran out fast.
The limited edition badge and cupcake voucher were given to park guests at the entrance turnstiles. According to the voucher, the cupcakes can only be redeemed at Loui’s and Starbot.
I went over to Loui’s NY Pizza Parlor to take a look at the cupcakes and this was what I found.
However, I learnt that they were NOT the free anniversary cupcakes.
I then headed to the Starbot Cafe to have a look and it seemed that these cupcakes were complimentary if you ordered a meal there.
Anyway, I went back to Loui’s to exchange my voucher for a cupcake and this was what I got… (erm…badge and studio guide added to fill up the empty spaces in the photo)
Mmm…this was a blueberry cupcake which seemed to also have a light coconut flavour. It was a little difficult to eat with all that cream which kept getting onto my fingers but overall it was a nice cupcake! ^_^
LOL…here’s my selfie moment! :p
Armed with my limited edition studio guide and birthday badge, I marked the occasion with a series of photos!…
With the Giant Minion…
Lastly, with some of the cast from the Royal Lunch at Eggingham Gardens (special show which is part of the Easter Eggstravaganza) – Clockwise from bottom left: Prince Runny, Duchess of Yolk, Duke of Yolk, Lady Florentine, Lord Benedict, Princess Sunny.
Once again, HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY to USS and I hope the BSG roller coasters will be in operation soon! 😉
