A Day Out with the Cousins at USS (Universal Studio Singapore)

For our annual visit back to Singapore, Universal Studio Singapore was definitely on our to-do list, especially with the older kids!

This year was no exception.

In fact, ours turned out to be quite a large group outing, as we had the cousins on board with us as well this year. A total of six kids, four boys and two girls, all set for their big day out with the cousins at USS. The kids were really excited with the chance to hang out and play, as they only get to see each other once that often in a year…

The boys definitely enjoyed the wild rides, which included the exciting TRANSFORMERS The Ride, The Ultimate 3D Battle, Shrek 4-D Adventure, Madagascar: A Crate Adventure and the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure.

All the rides in USS have a height limit. Usually, there’s an absolute lower height limit , and also an “accompanied” child height range. Check the website before going if there’re any particular rides the kids have their hearts set on.

Our big kids here, they could pretty much enjoy all the rides the park has to offer already and they had a blast.


Who says big kids don’t enjoy kiddy rides too 😉 Especially when you have mates to ride the merry-go-round with.


My son pretty much summed up the day with that photo – great day out with the Cuz at Universal Studio Singapore.

Editor’s note:  “Cousins are usually the first friends we have as children”.  The blessed ones amongst us will appreciate how precious that friendship and kinship is… What are some of your kids’ fave activities with their cousins? Share with us in the comments below!
