    Minion Land construction two and a half minutes into video




  2. Resorts World Sentosa has come out with a new press release regarding their expansion/renovation plans: https://www.genting.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/GB-AGM-2022-CFO-Slides-03062022-FINAL.pdf

    Key Highlights
    • Construction starts in 2022, opening in end-2024
    • A world’s first original ride exclusive to Universal Studios Singapore (Evidently from the pic, its some sort of swing chair ride)
    • Despicable Me Minion Mayhem – an immersive motion-simulator3D ride featuring a hyper-realistic projection system

    We've known about this for a while. However we're likely to not get any more news about this till around the time Minion Land is close to completion.

    I just watched a video on Super Nintendo in Orlando and it mentioned that Universal announced and is going to build a Super Nintendo in Singapore. What do you think about this?

  6. Any updates on the construction? It's been quiet..

  7. Construction on Minion Land started today.





    Minion Land, Universal Studios Singapore’s latest offering slated to open in 2024, broke ground today at a ceremony graced by Minister of State for Trade & Industry, and Culture, Community and Youth, Mr Alvin Tan. The mischievous Minions joined in the celebration with their team of builders. Their dance performances, along with dramatic effects at the event, provided fun and entertainment to more than 120 guests from Singapore’s tourism sector who partook in the start of a new and exciting chapter for Universal Studios Singapore. The celebratory occasion signaled Resorts World Sentosa’s commitment to work with industry partners to prepare for the revival of travel to Singapore. Construction is now underway to bring the wonderful world of Illumination’s Minions to life.

    As one of the key components of Resorts World Sentosa’s (RWS) expansion plan RWS 2.0, Minion Land will strengthen Universal Studios Singapore’s offerings and is anticipated to be a popular draw for both local visitors and overseas tourists. With Universal Studios Singapore consistently rated as one of Singapore’s top attractions, Minion Land is set to lead Singapore’s post-pandemic tourism recovery when it opens.

    Resorts World Sentosa has come out with a new press release regarding their expansion/renovation plans: https://www.rwsentosa.com/-/media/project/non-gaming/rwsentosa/press-release/pdf/en/2022/220217press-release--rws-expansion-to-lead-the-recovery-of-singapores-tourism-press-room.pdf?la=en

    The key points of the press release relating to Universal Studios Singapore are:

    - Minion Park has been renamed to Minion Land (no longer same name as Japan but now same name as Beijing)
    - Construction will commence in the second quarter of 2022
    - In addition to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Minion Land will have a second ride that will be “a world’s first original ride exclusive to Universal Studios Singapore”
    - Super Nintendo World is not mentioned all (but that doesn’t mean it’s cancelled or even on hold)
    - No completion/opening time frame mentioned for Minion Land or the expansion/renovation as a whole

    Minion Land will thrill and delight audiences of all ages with its popular and mischievous Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me. New adventures will be in store at the expansive zone, where there will be multiple rides including a world’s first original ride exclusive to Universal Studios Singapore, and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, an immersive motion-simulator 3D ride featuring a hyper-realistic projection system. Themed shops as well as restaurants in this new zone will appeal to multi- generational guests.
    Lower your expectations on the “world’s first original ride exclusive to Universal Studios Singapore” because it is probably King Julien's Beach Party-Go-Round being rethemed to Despicable Me/Minions characters.
