Meet Santa & More: Holiday Fun at Universal Christmas

Santa, snow, Christmas-themed shows and plenty of holiday cheer at Universal Studios Singapore 

Go to Sentosa…on a SATURDAY?! I must have been crazy, but my love for all things Christmas simply outweighed my severe dislike of crowds, and I’m happy to report that A Universal Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore was well worth the trip, mamas!

We’re always on the lookout for cool places to meet Santa, and Universal actually offers up multiple opportunities (so key when you’re trying to avoid queues!).

First up there’s Santa’s Workshop, an interactive experience where you move from room to room collecting stamps as you participate in various tasks like helping the Elves build toys, or assisting Mrs. Claus as she bakes Christmas cookies. Collecting stamps feels a bit unnecessary, but highlights include a beautiful light show and a capella Christmas carols at the start, and the staff who play elves are duly enthusiastic. It all culminates with the opportunity to meet Santa and get a photo op in a beautiful, mercifully air-conditioned setting! Santa’s Workshop is open all day, too, from 12pm to 8pm.

Shortly after leaving Santa’s Workshop, we ran into the man in red again during Santa’s Snowy Sleigh Ride, when he paraded down the streets of “New York” and “Hollywood” in his sleigh accompanied by elves and toy soldiers on stilts. Throw in festive music and actual “snow” and it was admittedly kind of magical — my 3-year-old was certainly enchanted. We skipped the meet-and-greet that culminates at Santa’s Christmas Tree House, but like I said, it’s always nice having multiple opportunities to meet Santa. The parade happens daily at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm.

Got a little one obsessed with Elmo? You will definitely want to check out the holiday-themed “Oscar’s Grouchmas”, a 30-minute musical show at Pantages Theatre where he discovers the true meaning of the season and the joys of giving, kindness and love (with a little help from Elmo and Cookie Monster, of course). Following the show kiddos can also pose for photos with both Elmo and Oscar. There are four shows a day at 1pm, 4pm, 6:30pm and 8:30pm.

Throughout the day you can also catch musical performances in the New York and Hollywood zones while taking in beautiful lights and decorations around the park. In the evenings older kids will enjoy the “Search for a Christmas Star” show at 7:30pm and 8:45pm, and on select nights you can even catch the Christmas Fireworks Spectacular at 9:30pm (check with park for performance dates).

One of the best parts about A Universal Christmas is that it’s included in regular ticket prices, which start at $72 for an adult one-day ticket. You can also score discounted tickets ($55 for adults, $50 for children, and $98 for 1 adult + 1 kid) when you enter the park after 5pm.

A Universal Christmas is on from now until 1 January; with school holidays on the docket I’d definitely suggest visiting the park on a weekday, although even on a sunny Saturday the lines were pretty manageable.

Who doesn’t love Christmas with a side of rollercoasters?
