Universal Studios Singapore Is Open - Sorta

Universal Studios Singapore is currently holding a sold-out preview week for the park, but get this - none of the rides or shows are open! Instead, to help the park's employees get used to having people in the gates they are charging a small admission fee and then they are able to enjoy the atmosphere, street entertainers, and eat a free meal at one of the park's restaurants.

It does afford plenty of time for photo taking, though, such as these nice shots that just showed up on Disney and More as well as the Sentosa Theme Park blog.

It appears as though Universal did a great job with the park's level of detail and theming, and it's hard to judge from photos, but the small physical size of the park does have rides looking almost on top of each other. For instance, you can't ignore the immense Mummy ride building next to a space themed dueling coaster!
