The time of year for Easter egg hunting is here again and this year’s Easter Eggstravaganza event (7 March to 17 April 2016) at Universal Studios Singapore requires an additional fee on top of your day ticket. This would then entitle you to participate in an egg hunt (correct answers will allow you to redeem a Minion egg prize), entry to “An UnEGGspected Wedding” and “Eggingham Gardens”.
Annual pass holders can participate in the ticketed Easter events only once during this period – just present your pass at “Guest Services” for your Easter entitlements.
This year’s decorations at the entrance archway:
The shop windows have changed with the season too.
I just had to get a picture with the Minions as there are 3 of them all decked out for Easter this year!
The Easter installation found at the end of Hollywood Boulevard changed its appearance several times during my visit!
Several days later…
However, if you visit now, the globe has been returned to the top and it’s quite a popular photo spot for this season!
Mel’s Dinettes – These ladies look really happy performing with green bunny ears! ^_^
An UnEGGspected Wedding [Ticketed Event]
Held at the Pantages Hollywood Theater, this stage show revolves around the Egg Lord, who has a deadline to get married before he loses his title and his precious royal purple coat!
Arrive early to get a better view of the somewhat cheesey pre-show act.
As for The UnEGGspected Wedding, the scenes were bright and colourful, with some funny moments injected into the acts.
Whoops! What was the Egg Lord doing with his pants down?!! Don’t worry, there’s nothing to be alarmed about as this is a kid-friendly show.
The Egg Lord and his bride – do they make a lovely couple?
I must say that the sound at the front row of the theatre isn’t that great, so it’s best to sit a little further back! I think I enjoyed this show more (and better understood the storyline) the second time I watched it.
Eggingham Gardens [Ticketed Event]
This is a meet and greet session in air-conditioned comfort with the Egg Lord and other characters from show. E.B., Humpty Dumpty and Puss in Boots may appear too!
Psychedelic wallpaper at the entrance to the “gardens”.
The set looks quite nice and I can identify some re-used props from previous year’s. ^_^
Different characters may appear at the different timeslots, so do pop by here at the scheduled times if you are a fan of character meet and greet!
Puss In Boots
Various characters from An UnEGGspected Wedding
The street has been decorated to fit the seasonal theme!
This is a roller-skating performance along the streets of New York and you will find the skaters handing out beaded necklaces to the crowd.
If it rains on the day of your visit and the ground is still wet, the performers will appear (minus their skates) for photo-taking and the handing out of the necklaces (i.e. there will not be any performance).
Here’s an excerpt from their performance:
Often overlooked are the projection mapping shows on the facade of the New York Library. I must say that the quality and sound for these projection mapping shows have improved greatly as compared to when they first started several years ago!

EASTER EGG HUNT
Both the young and old can participate in this egg hunt.
Win one of these Minion eggs when you submit your completed card with the correct answers!
There are 8 Easter eggs to be found within the park and you’ll need to match them to the locations on the map. Be warned – it may not be as easy as it looks!
Some of them were relatively easy to find – i.e. If you are a regular at the park, you’ll be able to easily identify the locations to be searched.
However, there was one which almost stumped me and that was the teapot egg! I was using the process of logical elimination and at the same time trying to guess where it could be found! I finally managed to locate it and it was funny cos I had actually walked past its location much earlier without even noticing it!!
Oh what joy – I won a Minion egg! You may say “cheap thrill” but the fun is in the hunting and a prize/present at the end is just a bonus! ^_^
FAR FAR AWAY
Wreaths decorated with Easter eggs can be found at both ends of this zone.
Other decorations found here:
Hmm…I wonder if this goose is related to the one at Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey?
Exotic looking egg decorations can be found in this zone!
Found these outside Marty’s Casa Del Wild Food Court, which is the venue for the Easter buffet lunch.
If you dine here, there is an exclusive meet and greet with the characters from Madagascar.
I happened to bump into these two characters when I walked through the zone, but their costumes are different from the ones at the Easter lunch buffet.
Overall it was good fun at the park (especially the egg hunt)!
