No hotel stay, holiday, food or any amount of counselling can heal this wound. But I appreciate the overwhelming support from my good friends, the well wishes & the opportunities that came my way last week. *Big hugs to all of you. Thank you so much…*
One particular friend whisked me off to Singapore last week for some R & R. A one day pass for Universal Studios was shoved into my hands & I found myself at the entrance of the Resorts World Sentosa early one morning.
1st thing I did was to get myself a “map” of course..
Presenting the seven zones of Universal Studios Singapore®:. I’m splitting up my experience into 7 different posts to cover each attraction one-by-one.
Walking within Universal Studios Singapore is a breeze. As expected, Universal Studios is clean, well laid out, staff was courteous and informative signboards are everywhere.
I’m starting off my Universal Studios Singapore series with the Ancient Egypt Zone.
The attractions within Ancient Egypt: (each zone has different attractions).
I hopped on the “Revenge of the Mummy” ride of course. Here’s my SGD18.00 photo to prove it! ;-)
Can anyone spot me? Epic wackybecky yea? Ha!
I couldn’t take any photo inside the “pyramid” or during the ride as it was forbidden. Else I would have loved to record a video of the mummy ride. It was a short 10mins ride that was freaky and fun.
There were accelerations, sharp bends, sudden elevation and “free falls”. I totally forgot about my troubles for a while & hung on for dear life!!
During the ride, there were realistic props (mummies, gold chests, treasures, FIRE, sound effects, lights) at the sides of the “rail” of the car. So the whole ride was alike going through an ancient pyramid tour. Remember the Mummy movie with Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz? Yeah, something like that. ;-)

Next is the Treasure Hunter. It’s a ride more for kids. Driving through an excavation site in a jeep is not my cup of tea.

Puked after your mummy ride? Each Zone has a few F & B options. For Ancient Egypt, Oasis Spice Cafe is a Egyptian-themed buffeteria serving specialties flavored with Mediterranean, Turkish, Lebanese and Indian spices.
Or get your drinks/fruits/snacks from the Cairo Market.
I met Cleopatra!!! Hmm.. is the guy supposed to be..err.. Mark Anthony?
Each zone has lockers conveniently near the rides since you are not allowed to bring any bags, possessions onto the rides.
Free of charge for the 1st 30mins. I didn’t have to pay for locker usage here since the ride was shorter than 30mins.
That’s it for Ancient Egypt! Watch out for my next post in my Universal Studios Singapore series! :yes:
