Marilyn Monroe was nice to fill my request for a good spin.
Is going to be a dazzling Christmas Wonderland at the Universal Studios Singapore (USS) with this year Universal Journey, an all-new experiential festive light display. I am glad I get to have a sneak preview. This is my first time visiting USS as a media personnel. Truly exciting. Even more exciting than going with my family. I get to go "behind the scene" of this internationally acclaimed theme park.
The annual Santa's All Stars Christmas celebration will illuminate the holiday season. In fact, we were invited to witness the the presentation of Guinness World Records title for the largest light bulb display in an indoor space. To be exact, the display has 824,961 light bulbs.
Visitors embarked on the Universal Journey will venture through eight thematic zones from the Enchanted Pine Forest to Herald's Square.
The enchanted wonderland with snowfall, fireworks, festive light displays, as well as musical performances and appearances by the park's very own all-star cast decked out in their Christmas outfits will be held from 1 December 2016 to 2 January 2017. Take note of the period dates if you are coming to enjoy this year festive season.
Besides the Universal Journey, two new experiences, Santa's Village and a music-filled show titled Bah Humbug! Well, it a Christmas Spectacular. Showcasing 17 all-star cast in one musical extravaganza. Philanthropist-turned-budding director Ebenezer Scrooge is calling in popular characters such as the Minions, Little Match Girl, Snow Queen and Sesame Street friends who will delight audiences with magical song and dance moments at the Pantages Hollywood Theater. Hopefully I get to watch it with my family.
At the Santa's Village, visitors will be able to explore the picturesque to relive their fondest childhood memories. A lot of activities will be happening and interactive stations, quaint village where talking reindeer, the fame Gingerbread Man, Shoemaker, Santa on his sleigh, are all there to meet and great visitors. Wow ! What a memorable Christmas !
