The first and only Universal Studios theme park in Southeast Asia can bring fun to kids and adults of all ages. 

Aside from the usual thrilling rides, Universal Studios Singapore will be presenting an all new edition of A Universal Christmas, where guests can expect a full repertoire of experiences including dazzling light displays, all-new musical performances, and spectacular fireworks.

Visitors can begin their journey with a trip to the bustling Elf Town, where they can help elves in the toy workshop, or even test if they have been "naughty" or "nice." 

They can then catch PRESENTation Day, a brand-new musical telling the heart-warming tale of Evie Evergreen, a toymaker elf determined to bring back the true meaning of Christmas in today's tech-obsessed world. 
 
At Santa's Snowy Sleigh Ride, meanwhile, they can see the largest-ever Christmas parade in the history of Universal Studios Singapore. They can expect flamboyant floats and catch over 50 merry characters dancing around the park, including elves, toy soldiers and jolly old St. Nick himself. 
 
At nightfall, visitors can celebrate with Santa's Christmas Light-Up Party on New York Street, where characters such as the Minions, Sesame Street friends, Shrek and Princess Fiona will be in Christmas outfits. The illuminated show features projection mapping, and guests can even experience some snowfall.

Universal Studios Singapore will have extended park hours, which will allow guests to enjoy all that the park offers for even longer, from thrilling rides to live shows, and even some new surprises come 2019.

At the S.E.A. Aquarium, guests can dive deep and discover an illuminated underwater wonderland. One of the world's largest, the aquarium will let visitors meet the luminous sea creatures of the Glowing Ocean, and guests can explore five multi-sensory zones inspired by mystical marine animals.

At the Glow Room, visitors can discover the difference between biofluorescent and bioluminescent animals, and even pen conservation wishes with glow-in-the-dark ink.

Guests can then step into an immersive art installation at the Crazy, Colorful Corals zone inspired by flowing coral tentacles, or gaze in wonder at the aquarium's coral colonies, which fluoresce under ultraviolet light at the night reef habitat.

The experiential light displays include zones such as the Imaginarium, which transports guests immediately into the depths of the underwater world; Joyous Jiggly Jellies, which features an extensive collection of mesmerizing sea jellies illuminating hues of colors in their newly-enhanced habitats; and the Abyssal Zone, which brings to life mysterious deep sea creatures in a holographic experience.

For the first time, S.E.A. Aquarium will introduce an underwater appearance with divers in especially customized LED suits as they swim alongside 40,000 marine residents such as majestic manta rays and zebra sharks at the iconic Open Ocean Habitat. In addition, crowd favorites such as Scuba Santa and Elves will make a comeback with their cheeky underwater antics as they dive amongst fishy friends.

Families visiting this festive season can get 20 percent off the usual price for a family bundle to enjoy not only S.E.A. Aquarium Glowing Ocean but also travel back in time as they visit the Maritime Experiential Museum. Kids can enjoy free retail merchandise worth P624.
