  1. I think its due to Covid-19 they put the expansion on hold. I went to USS 3 times this month (4, 6 & 7 Sep). And Madagascar was still operating like nothing happened.

    Is this project going to start construction anytime soon?

    Apparently Minion Park was supposed to open in 2021, while Super Nintendo World is supposed to open in 2025, but no construction work has started at all so I am worried if this project will be cancelled.

    I just came across a Genting presentation from June 22, 2020 that shows the layout of what at least would have been the Universal Studios expansion. This could end up being the design still or it could be downscaled, cancelled, or reimagined at a later date.

    As previously reported/rumored, Minion Park would replace the majority of the Madagascar area. In addition Super Nintendo World would replace the rest of Madagascar AND part of the Waterfront area of Resorts World Sentosa:



    Minion Park is the orange area and Super Nintendo World is BOTH pink areas:





    The main area of Super Nintendo World for guests to explore and interact would go behind (and maybe even in place of) the large 'Resorts World' 'Sentosa' sign which is where Madagascar: A Crate Adventure is now. The Mario Kart ride building which in all of the Super Nintendo Worlds is located either on the side or back of the area would be located here on the other side of the Sentosa Express monorail in what is currently the Waterfront area, specifically replacing the building that has Trick Eye Museum, HeadRock VR, and Malaysian Food Street. As part of the Resorts World Sentosa expansion plans announced last year the "Waterfront Lifestyle Complex" would be redesigned and expanded which is seen in the layouts above. Currently The Forum area leads to S.E.A. Aquarium and from there it is kind of a sharp turn to Waterfront. With this expansion plan a sharp turn would lead straight into the Mario Kart ride building. Now as part of the redesign The Forum area would continue to curve with a wider turn into the new Waterfront Lifestyle Complex which surrounds the Mario Kart ride building. The new Waterfront Lifestyle Complex would extend further into the Meander Shoal and then keep curving into the Sentosa Boardwalk. The part of the Sentosa Express that goes between Madagascar: A Crate Adventure and Waterfront is enclosed by rockwork. Super Nintendo World would potentially involve the rockwork being removed so guests could enter and exit the Mario Kart ride building by going over the monorail. I'm including the aerial photo below from 2017 as reference:



    The Resorts World Sentosa expansion as a whole (not Universal expansion specifically) is being designed by RSP (Raglan Squire & Partners) and the long term Sentosa-Brani masterplan is designed by WilkinsonEyre and Grant Associates. The Sentosa-Brani masterplan could and hopefully will involve Universal for further larger scale expansions.

  4. When you say the 'boat ride', do you mean the Madagascar ride?

  5. The Minions land is being scaled back or cut entirely, and the simulator ride is now going into the existing live entertainment theater at the front of the park, downsized to a single simulator theater and preshow. This project was supposed to be started by now, but it's gone back to the design phase to make it fit. Nintendo has been put on hold, but it will go where the boat ride is currently. A new parade, an unnanounced Sesame Street interactive playground, and a The Fast and The Furious theme restaurant experience is slated for the New York section of the park, but it also on hold.

  6. I thought it was going in the Madagascar section?

    I can't see Nintendo World or any other major expansion fitting anywhere in the first place:


  8. Having spoken to people who know the site well the site this isn't currently under construction. It was announced that they would get similar expansions to other parks worldwide but nothing has begun work.

    Those parks are struggling financially anyway and clearly the epidemic will have an affect so I doubt we will see this move for a long time.

  9. Is this truly on hold now?

    Singapore is one the last countries in the world to keep their theme parks open among the coronavirus pandemic.

    Hey guys, it seems like Super Nintendo World would be in the Madagascar Area as well!

    You could refer to this for reference/source:
