Santa’s All-Star Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore will be held from 1 December 2016 to 2 January 2017.
Our Parenting World team brings to you highlights of this year Christmas activities to look out for when you visit Universal Studios Singapore:
1) Universal Journey
Entering into the dazzling Universal Journey and be amazed with the largest light bulb display all in the comfort of a nice and cooling indoor environment.
Universal Journey holds the Guinness World Records title for the largest light bulb display in an indoor venue. The title was presented to Universal Studios Singapore on Guinness World Records Day, a global celebration of record-breaking that takes place every November. Bravo, what an achievement!
We spend some time at Universal Journey admiring and taking lots of pictures with the beautiful, dazzling and colourful lights.
It is really a spectacular sight with the whole exhibit filled with world record-breaking 824,961 twinkling light bulbs!
Here is an overview video of what you can expect when you embark into Universal Journey. You will walk through 8 thematic zones from the Enchanted Pine Forest to the quaint European town of Herald’s Square.
Take a walk and embark on an enchanting journey, along the way admire the colourful spiral topiaries, towering trees of the Enchanted Pine Forest, the fantasy dreamscapes of Haven of the Pixies, the quaint town of Herald’s Square and the Land of Great Gifts which is decorated with larger-than-life Christmas presents. It is really a spectacular and unforgettable sight!
The Universal Journey took 2 months to complete and this marked the second Guinness World Records achievement for Universal Studios Singapore in 2016. Congratulations!
