Saturday, 3rd October
I met up with the usual people i hangout with in Secondary school. Beverly, Shahil, Nazlyn and Dextre. So there was a total of 5 of us. We took bus 10 to Vivo City from Tampines interchange, it was a long journey but a fun one. Me and Shahil sat at thee back, Beverly and Dexter sat in front of us followed by Nazlyn. We all had our earpieces plugged into our ears and we were listening to some music. Except, we were a little excited so we were just singing aloud and jammin’ to the songs played. We had a great laugh – one of my unforgettable moments with the bunch too. 🙂
Exhausted from all the lip syncing to Beyonce’s hit, Listen. 😛 Did i also mentioned we went for a B&W outfit theme?!
We arrived at our destination and took bus RWS8 from the bus stop we alighted from and it took us at least 20 mins to get there. When we arrived, all we could see was tourists bustling in and out of the casino, people taking photographs at the iconic Universal globe with mist everywhere. It was a lovely sight, knowing that i will have a good day. People were queuing to get their faces painted, express passes and of course to get into the amusement park itself. And of course, we had to get the express pass!
In the bus on the way to Resorts World Sentosa!
We were already inside the park, waiting for the grand opening. A gust of mist exploded ahead of us, as the crowd waited for gates to open. A man in a lab suit stood in the middle of the pathway, greeting us with fear. Stuntmen appeared at the back of us as fog cleared it’s way. It was a sdcary sight but amusing to because we got to see stuntmen in spooky costumes abseil their way down the retro buildings and jump off a great height. It was entertaining. As the gates opened everyone patiently made their way into the amusement park. We went for the haunted house first.
The first haunted house is always the scariest because we really didn’t know what to expect. This haunted house was themed after the legendary, spooky, block 50 in Singapore. (Not sure what was it though.) Dexter took the lead, then Beverly, Nazlyn, myself and Shahil. We all held each others hands. All of us were filled with excitement. We had wide smiles on our faces, it was an unforgettable moment. I remember hearing screams and laughter in the haunted house, i squeezed Nazlyn and Shahil’s hands out of fear and i also remember Shahil running ahead of me because a ghost was running after him. It was hilarious and super fun!
Later, we moved on and saw another haunted house, a zombie-themed haunted house but it was crowded so we decided to move on with the next one first. The next segment of the amusement park was a sci-fi themed. There were alien-like mascots on stilts, it was cool to me! It reminded me of a dream i had about fighting zombies! We took several photos with the mascots and only these two pictures turned out decent. The laser lights at the back was a good addition to the atmosphere too!
After taking photos, we walked further down and reached the Transformer section. Although the Transformer ride wasn’t that much of a thriller, we decided to go for it because… why not? It was a short ride and soon after, we took a break, bought ourselves a bottle of Coca – Cola to freshen up and hydrate ourselves.
Not far from where we were was the two big rollercoaster rides, the Cylon and Human rides! Basically, it’s the main reason why people go to USS! What more, it’s in the dark! We took the Cylon ride first. We put away our bags in a locker nearby and queued in line. The moment i sat in the coaster ride, i immediately feel like i’m gonna have a muscle ache on my cheek for laughing and smiling too much. I knew it was gonna be one hell of a ride. It was first time so i sat next to Shahil – my good pal.
Then, the ride begun. The rattling of the chains of the roller coaster track rang in my ears, the riders behind us were cheering on, and then the roller coaster sped up. My head threw back, my hair went flying in all directions and i could barely feel my face. I couldn’t scream because it was so fast i just couldn’t catch up! My stomach literally went up my throat. (Use literally when youre actually being literal. lmao.) I had to grab Shahil’s hand in the midst of the ride because we both were scared shitless.
In less than 2 minutes, we were already walking out of the attraction. It was a fast one yet thrilling. Next, we went to the mummy ride! The express queue, however, is taking a long time so we decided to take the fast lane. We entered the universal attraction queue and ran as fast as we can, parkour-ed over a crate, ran in circles and went down under the rope fences and then eventually, we’re at the very front of the express pass queue. We haven’t gotten into the ride and we’re already having our own fun! When we actually got into the ride, we knew every word, every turn and every moment this ride will bring us. We knew this ride so well, we actually memorised the ride. When the time comes, we decided to put on a straight face for the camera. And boy, did we pull it off! Hahaha. Read More
