Believe it or not, it’s my maiden trip to USS! And this trip was made together with my colleagues, WITHOUT any of our kiddos. Whoohoo!

We look like we are in dreamland….

We enjoyed a good deal for the tickets when we paid with our Mastercard. And we sure made sure our ticket money was worth EVERY SINGLE cent!

The first and, in my opinion, best ride was the  amazing 3D ride - TRANSFORMERS.

Don’t we look coool in our battle glasses?

We zipped through alleys,zoomed upwards, crashed low in the midst of chaos and destruction.

Though we came out a little giddy, we managed a picture with an autobot. :)

Hairs a bit ruffled, shirts a bit crumpled but we managed to smile quite nicely

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!!!

If you can see, there are 2 sets of roller coasters intertwined here. The red colored one is a seated roller coaster called HUMAN Viper Mark II and moves at speed of 82.8 km/h, and reaches up to 14 storeys high!

The blue colored one is the CYCLON Raider, a suspended roller coaster that brings the people upside down.

We obviously went for the…

We are humans after all right??

Shortly into the ride, the roller coaster plunged deep deep deep deep deep deep deep deep down. I think my heart sank faster than my body did. At that point, I told myself I am NOT going to take the CYCLON ride. NEVER.

I realized that I was not the only one who made that decision up there. Phew!

And so we proceeded to the REVENGE OF THE MUMMY.

It was another high speed roller coaster except that it is indoors and in the dark. Thrilling but not that scary.

We also tried the JURASSIC PARK RAPIDS ADVENTURE.

It was a sure-get-wet kind of a ride…

And so we put on our ponchos hoping we do not get too wet.

It was a leisurely ride in the 9-seater raft. The dinosaurs minded their own business very well and did not scare us at all. It was only towards the end where there was a water drop and the poor person who happened to be at the part of the raft that fell backwards first, will be at the receiving end of the huge splash of water!

Right after lunch, we were back in action!

We went for the SHREK 4D ADVENTURE.

It was a hilarious time with all the 4D effects that made us laugh and scream in disgust and horror. You will know what I mean when you watch this. ;)

And finally, after many considerations, deliberations, weighing the pros and the cons. WE. DECIDED. TO. TAKE.

CYCLON!!!!!!!!!!

Without Sandra and Wendy HAHAHA!

God bless our hearts.

The 3 of them screamed their hearts out. Yes, them and not me. Because me. I just closed my eyes and clinged on to my arm rests for my dear life. As a result, I felt the minimal effects of terror.

Still, I can say “I TOOK THE CYCLON RIDE!” *Peace sign*

Besides the rides, we also watched our most favorite Sesame Street show and took lots of pictures with the mascots and stuffs along the way. Here are some of our lovely pictures to end off. I hope you enjoy USS in this post. Thanks for reading!
