more from universal studios! a longer post this time i think, cos this part is slightly more interesting than the rest. hmm. so after hollywood and madagascar in the first post, we then came upon:
a little house in far far away. and the owner of the house…
lol. we queued for the rollercoaster ride first. (the queue was like, 30 mins, and the ride was over in barely 2 mins.) it’s been ages since i last rode on a rollercoaster, and boy it freaked me out, even though it’s a JUNIOR rollercoaster ride. tsk. the high-speed corners were pretty scary; felt like i was gonna fly off any minute. and i kept screaming. lol. but you know what? at the end of the day, we went on this for a second time. tsk tsk. why do i scare myself like that? =\
we went for the 4D adventure next.
we were given those 3D glasses and brought first into a room where we all stood around listening to a boring story, and then into a large ‘movie theatre’. the story was about princess fiona being kidnapped by the ghost of lord farquaard, and shrek and donkey have to rescue her.
besides the usual 3D effects, there were also moving seats, mist sprays and etc. i like the first scene where donkey sneezes on screen and some mist is actually sprayed at us. so cool! but i get freaked out easily so there were quite some scenes that scared me. so embarrassing. =\
i wouldn’t mind watching this a second time if not for the first part where we all had to stand in the ‘dungeon’. that part was boring. lol. and you know what this means? I CAN WATCH 3D~!!!!! 😀
we then came to a split road and we chose waterworld first.
it’s actually part of lost world, but i don’t know why it’s split out on its own. hmmm. was actually kinda anticipating this section cos i wanted to see for my own eyes what my project looked like in real life. i was disappointed. lols.
this section actually consists of just a live show. i think the story is about this group of people (the good guys) looking for dry land in a world of only water. a female joins them who claims to know where dry land is. another group (the bad guys) appear and take the female hostage, killing the rest, and wanting her to reveal where dry land is. but then this guy appears and goes through alot to save her.
hmmmm. lame story, but the stunts and explosions and fireworks and stuff were cool! the seats were also divided into 3 sections. we took the middle one, which means we had a little bit of chance to get wet. well we didn’t. the front section did though. the performers literally threw buckets of water at them.
went for lunch after the show. at lost world.
initially i thought food court food would be less pricy, but guess how much 2 laksa sets and 2 wanton mee sets total up to? almost $50! but they did give us $5 meal voucher each, so it wasn’t so bad. was it? hmmmm.
went for yet another rollercoaster ride after eating. this time it was the ‘suspended’ kind. the whole ride was shorter than the FFA one, but equally scary cos my legs were dangling in the air. gave me a bit of shock at first cos it actually looked pretty slow from the ground.
rapids adventure next. it’s more exciting than the dinosaur boat ride in genting, but slower than the one i tried in australia. after queueing for around 40 mins (right?), we climbed on board this round raft which brought us along this river, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, with fake (duh!) dinosaurs at the sides.
entered this dark dark cave, and came sliding down this slope and splashing into the water. and i got wet. VERY wet. it was as if someone aimed a huge bucket of water straight at my face. lols. but very fun. probably my favorite ride in the whole place. but the waiting time was horrendous. tsk.
phew. another the end! 1 more part to end uss. =)
