Chinese New Year celebrations will last till Feb 28 at USS and Mar 2 at the SEA Aquarium.
Celebrate the Year of the Ox off with Universal Studios Singapore (USS) and the SEA Aquarium, where fun activities including a dragon meet and greet and finding gold ingots await.
At USS, there will be meet and greet sessions with various characters including Po from Kung Fu Panda, Puss in Boots and Kitty Softpaws from Puss in Boots, and Shrek and Princess Fiona from Shrek.
From the Despicable Me franchise, Gru is joined by the Minions Stuart, Bob and Kevin, who will be dawning a specially designed Ox outfit. Sesame Street and Madagascar characters and the duo of Woody and Winnie Woodpecker round off the regular meet and greets.
Megatron and Optimus Prime from Transformers will also have a special meet and greet, greeting park goers in Chinese.
The Chinese New Year surprises at the park extend to food and retail outlets. If one can recite a tongue twister in Chinese at the cashiers of the food or retail shops, they will win a prize.
The festivities at Universal Studios Singapore will run from Jan 7 to Feb 28.
At the SEA Aquarium, search and take photos of hidden gold ingots located in habitats to win a prize, all while learning about why the slingjaw wrasse and scrawled cowfish are believed to be symbols of good luck (no spoilers here though!).
Patrons can also enjoy taking photos with dragon dance-inspired photo installations and sticking scales to help complete a sea dragon mural.
The festivities at SEA Aquarium’s will run from Jan 9 to Mar 2.
To really bring the message of prosperity to Singapore this new year, any Singapore resident who purchases a one-day admission ticket to the aquarium or USS during the festive period can get goodies such as corndogs, popcorn, red bean pandan chiffon or manta ray shaped cookies for free.
Singapore residents can also enjoy three visits to the USS or the SEA Aquarium for the price of two. That is one more reason to shout “Huat Ah!” this Chinese New Year.
