To help you plan your day we’ve put together a list of the best Universal Studios Singapore rides and a complete guide of what not to miss.
How To Get To Universal Studios Singapore
Jump off at the Harbourfront MRT and head across the boardwalk.
It’s an easy enough walk, only 800 meters, and took no more than 10 minutes. There are even moving walkways if you get tired.
Cost: $4 to Sentosa / Free on the ride back.
We recommend walking over and catching the free ride back. Unless you’re pushed for time in the morning in which case it could be worth the $4.
By Cable Car:
Cost: Adult – S$33.00 / Child – S$22.00.
Children under 4 ride free.
This is the price for a return ticket and its best to book a Sentosa Cable Car Sky Pass Ticket in advance.
The journey over can be just as fun as the island, with the most popular option of transport being the Singapore Cable Car, that connects the main island of Singapore to Sentosa.
