Daddy : We stayed from 5pm to 9pm, for a Preview.
Can you imagine how much time we need, if we try all the rides?

- We were initially worried that no-rides-means-no-fun. We were entertained by Street Arts, gags, and tons of photo opportunities. $10 per head, what a steal !

- Merchandise (swords, bears, dino, props) were freely distributed for photo sessions, but the staff did have problem chasing them back from kids later keke.

- The food were very appetizing. Cuisine are prepared by "renowned" chefs, and usual set meal would cost between $10 to $20, but we were able to use our preview tickets to exchange for the food. (Total 60 restaurants to choose from !!)

- Service , tip top for the friendly USS team. Everybody put on a smile, and were ever so ready to help. Not forgetting that most of them work during Chinese New Year weekends. Kudos.

Well Done USS, you are going to be "Asia's Ultimate Family Destination".

Adult - $318, Child - $238
