If this is true, than it's another prove that there's a coaster/themeparkboom in the Far East.

The Singapore Universal Studios rumor is quite believable. The proposed location is very tourist friendly, and was the site of a small amusement park previously. The Sentosa Island area has been looking for new development for quite a few years. The Genting group which owns and operates amusement properties in and around Malaysia (casinos and hotels as well as parks) is supposedly the party pushing for the Universal tie-in.

They've been looking to build a park in Singapore since before they started building in Japan...

I'd love to see it happen, but again, I don't know if the current management will allow it.

I love donkeys more than me.

by bigger do they mean the actual theme park? Because if that's the case, then that's not very big.

Hello!!! More update can be found here...

http://www.screamscape.com/html/univers ... gapore.htm

Finally, the plan has been confirmed. Even the newspaper from Singapore said that it has been confirmed. The park is likely to be finished by 2010 and is bigger than the Hollywood one and has more than 20 attractions including (rumor) Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man and Revenge of the Mummy.

Of course the Hollywood Universal Studios isn't really all that big...
;)

I hope that my next ship goes to Singapore after they finally get a new amusement park!
