The Universal Journey is a brand new experiential festive light display, which is the highlight of this year’s Santa’s All-Star Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore. It features eight thematic zones of wonder that have been constructed with the use of a total of 824,961 light bulbs! Yes, you read the number correctly – this whopping number of lights have earned the theme park a Guinness World Record for having the largest light bulb display in an indoor venue!
Take a step in and you will find a Big Planet amidst a backdrop of stars in the night sky. There’s a hole in the middle of the planet and it resembles a wormhole or a time warp tunnel!
The lights in the tunnel change colours, so you can take your pick of your favourite colours when posing for pictures.
You will soon be transported into the Enchanted Pine Forest, where you can find trees in a mesmerizing assortment of colours!
Upon closer inspection, you can see that the lights come from these tiny LED light bulbs. How on earth did the Guinness World Record Officials manage to count the total number of light bulbs?!! I think I would be all googly-eyed and probably lose count after a while!
After passing through the forest, you will enter the Haven of Pixies, which is a magical realm and it feels as though you have stepped into fairyland!
From here we get a glimpse of the next zone and the combination of all the lights is quite a breathtaking sight to behold!
Ohh…what is that long archway which looks a little like a slinky toy?
This is called the Rainbow Bridge and its name was inspired by Thor, as divulged by Ms Andrea Teo, Vice President of Entertainment at Resorts World Sentosa.
The colours move around, producing different effects and I thought it was quite fun to walk through this!
Even Marilyn Monroe appeared to be enjoying herself in this space! ^_^
The archway at the other end of the bridge will take you into Herald’s Square.
Imagine stepping into a quaint European town without having to buy a plane ticket to get there!
Cute deer can be found close to the foliage.
Betty Boop certainly enjoyed posing for pictures with them!
There is a side door to another room which contains the Land of Great Gifts.
I just love Christmas light displays and this entire place and its atmosphere is simply amazing with its dazzling array of lights that I just had to get a photo to remember the experience!
Here’s a walkthrough of the Universal Journey, but you really have to be here to soak in the atmosphere!:
Bring family and friends, or you can even have a romantic date here and take lots of pictures! It certainly promises to be a dazzlingly spectacular and memorable experience!
We even did a mannequin challenge there – see if you can spot me in Resorts World Sentosa’s video! LOL!!
Santa’s All-Star Christmas will be held from 1st December 2016 to 2nd January 2017 at Universal Studios Singapore.
