The landmark attraction of the Lost World are the Jurassic Park River Rapids. Though the ride exists in other Universal Studios parks, the River Rapids of Universal Studio Singapore have a new and more intense story line and ride system. New round boats, which hold nine passengers, provide a more thrilling experience as guests drift, rush and plummet through the river rapids.
The journey begins innocently enough, with guests viewing gentle herbivorous dinosaurs, even disembarking from their boats to get a closer look. But suddenly the tour goes terribly wrong when a "flash flood" hits and guest are swept right under the electrical fence into the carnivores' territory. Floating down the sometimes turbulent waters guests will face terrifying and hungry dinosaurs at every turn, including the king of them all, T-Rex!
If guests don't feel like being dinosaur lunch they can always head over to one of three dino-centric, family-friendly attractions in The Lost World USS. For the athletic or competitive the Amber Rock Climb, a Universal Studios Singapore original, provides a heady challenge in the form of a vertical wall studded with dinosaur skeletons for everyone from the novice to the expert climber. There's even a pint sized wall for kids! Race your family and friends to see who gets to pay for lunch.
Two flying rides round out the family fun in the Lost World USS, Dino-Soarin' and the Canopy Flyer. At the Dino-Soarin' ride, a Universal Studios Singapore original, children can ride their own pteranodon and control the vertical movement of their flying dinosaur as they twirl around.
In the Canopy Flyer guests can enter their own "dinosaur proof" vehicle and fly high above the Lost World, taking in a bird's eye view of all of the magnificent scenery and dinosaurs presented in the Lost World. Both rides are exciting yet tame options for families with smaller children in tow.
If guests come to Universal Studios Singapore they should expect world class shows, and that's exactly what they'll find at the Waterworld attraction in The Lost World USS. Waterworld, based on the similarly titled movie starring Kevin Costner, is an action extravaganza for even the most die hard stunt junky.
Acrobats, stuntmen and special effects experts from around the world to produce the number one rated stunt show in the world, complete with aerial acrobatics, explosions, boat and jet ski stunts, and more. With 3,000 seat the Waterworld theater was created to provide a coliseum of chair gripping, fingernail biting action that guests will talk about for years to come.
After such excitement many guests will be ready to prop their feet up and enjoy a cool drink, which is exactly what they can do at dining shack Fossil Fuels, which provides guests with light snacks and frozen drinks. If guests need something a bit more hearty they can head over to the Discovery Food Court, which features Local Food such as laksa and chicken rice. Either way, guests won't leave The Lost World USS with tummies that rumble like a mean T-Rex.
Of course, every adventurer needs a souvenir to commemorate his experiences, and guests can find exactly what their dino-loving hearts need at the Dino-Store and Jurassic Park Outfitters. From dinosaur figurines to Jurassic Park t-shirts guests can find everything they need to remember the excitement of The Lost World USS.
From the danger seeker to the young child there are attractions for every member of the family in the Lost World USS. Try not to rush through this fascinating area of the park, perhaps even devote a whole day to it. After all, you wouldn't want to miss T-Rex's canine teeth, would you?
