A night at the theme park
Here’s another pro-tip: It’s totally fine to spend most of the day with the kids without fearing you’ll lose time to go on the more adventurous rides. Why? Because on Fridays, Saturdays, and select public holidays until Apr. 28, the park will be open until 10 p.m. for Universal After Hours. Which means you can tire out the kids during the day, take a short nap, and go at it all over again after the sun goes down.
Trust me, the roller coasters are a whole ‘notha thing once it gets dark. After dinner, catch the Hollywood Dreams Light-Up Parade at 7:30 p.m., which is basically a neon-lit version of the usual Hollywood Dreams Parade. If you’re not familiar, it’s basically a parade of floats from the park’s different attractions — Hollywood, Far Far Away (from Shrek), The Mummy, Transformers, Jurassic Park, and more. Bring a fast zoom lens if you want to take pics, and make sure your phone’s got some memory for video. Or you know, you could enjoy everything without worrying about social media, just like when we were kids.
Sesame Street’s 50 Years and Counting Celebration and Universal After Hours will run until April 28. For tickets and more information, visit rwsentosa.com and follow @rwsentosa and #SS50xUSS.
