It is the second Universal Studios theme park to open in Asia (Japan being the first), and the first in Southeast Asia.

Universal Studios Singapore is 20 hectares (49 acres) in size, occupying the easternmost part of the 49-hectare (120-acre) Resorts World Sentosa. There are a total of 24 attractions, of which 18 are original or specially adapted for the park. The park consists of seven themed zones surrounding a lagoon. Each zone is mostly based on movies and/or television, featuring its own attractions, meet and greet locations, over 30 restaurants and food carts, and 20 retail stores and carts located around the park.


Hollywood is the main entrance area of the park. Its only attraction, a broadway-style theatre, is accompanied by several restaurants and a variety of shopping locations. The zone is filled with Hollywood-inspired architecture and palm trees, including a replica of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

New York City

New York City is based on the original New York City, during the era of post-modernization. The zone features various landmarks commonly portrayed in movies including the city skyline, neon lights, facades, and sidewalks. This zone also has a replica of the New York Public Library. Special Sesame Street character appearances include: Elmo, Big Bird, Count von Count, Abby Cadabby, Bert, Ernie, Grover, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch.

Sci-Fi City

Sci-Fi City is themed to a supposed metropolis of the future. It is the home of a pair of dueling roller coasters.

Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt is based on the historical adaptation of Ancient Egypt during the 1930s Golden Age of Egyptian Exploration. It features obelisks and pyramids which are typical of Ancient Egypt. Also featured are Pharaohs’ tombs which were supposedly commonly discovered during that era. This zone relies on the depictions made in the popular film franchise, The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser.

The Lost World

The Lost World contains many traditional attractions present in most Universal Studios parks around the world and is divided into two sub-areas: Jurassic Park and Waterworld. Jurassic Park, based on the popular film franchise by Steven Spielberg and novels by Michael Crichton, features the newly redesigned Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure which is based on the water rides in other Universal Studios parks. Waterworld, based on the film Waterworld starring Kevin Costner, features a live show performance at an amphitheater.

Far Far Away

Far Far Away is inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek franchise. The zone consists of many locations from the film series, with a landmark in the form of “Far Far Away Castle”. Character appearances include: Shrek, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Princess Fiona, Pinocchio and Prince Charming.


Madagascar is inspired by the DreamWorks Animation franchise of the same name. The zone features a tropical jungle theming as well as two rides. Character appearances include: Alex, Gloria, King Julien, Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico. In December 2019, RWS announced that Madagascar would be replaced by 2 new sections, Minion Park (2021) and Super Nintendo World (2025).
