Not too long ago, we covered the expansion plans for the 2 integrated resorts in Singapore: Marina Bay Sands and Sentosa.
Besides already mentioning the highly anticipated changes coming to Universal Studios Singapore (USS), we talked about:
The 4th tower coming to Marina Bay Sands and it’s new entertainment arena.
Then, the casino expansions and increased levy and the replacement with the Sentosa aquarium with another aquarium (but bigger).
And we’ve touched on the new spaces for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) that will be created.
But now we have a whole article dedicated to just the changes in USS, so if that’s what you’re really interested in, you’re in luck.
USS currently has 7 themed zones: Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away and Madagascar.
If you didn’t already know from the title of this article, from all the articles already out and from all the buzz on the streets, we will soon be welcoming 2 new zones, namely Minion Park And Super Nintendo World.
Super Nintendo World
Behold the fantastic rendering of the new zone… and savour it because it’s all we really have right now.
From the concept art, you can see lot’s of Super Mario Bros icons, and it seems to feature Princess Peach’s castle, Toad House, and Bowser’s Castle.
To further whet your taste buds, you can also watch this trailer for Japan’s version of Super Nintendo World, which is also upcoming and not actually out yet.
The Weekender says there are rumours that Universal Studios theme parks in Japan, Florida and Hollywood may have Mario Kart attractions. But really, we’re grasping at straws here.
Let your imagination run on what little fodder they gave us and hope they release more details soon.
This we have slightly more to work with because there is a Minion Park currently open and functioning in Universal Studios Japan, so you can check that out.
Plus, we have a 3D simulator ride already scheduled, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem which promises an adventure through Gru’s laboratory to fulfil a quest.
Out with the old, in with the new
Okay, USS isn’t exactly big so how are they going to fit not one, but two parks in?
Well, by replacing one of the zones within USS.
Madagascar. No one’s crying too hard because most people agree that the Madagascar zone is one of the least eventful ones.
The zones will be out by 2025, so till then, treasure what you can of the original USS.
That or get a six-year calendar and start to countdown like NSFs in the army.
