A festive parade, a water party and even an after-party. Say hi to Soak Out at Universal Studios Singapore this 13 June to 10 August.
Soak Out Water Party
For the Water Party, park guests can join in the festive parade that begins at 3pm (or 5.30pm on days when Hollywood Dreams Parade is on), which runs through selected zones in the park. This is part of the daily programming during this period, so all park guests get to join in – if they wish to!
The festive parade ends at the Lagoon Stage in the Hollywood zone where close to 50 characters (including the Minions and Sesame Street friends) and entertainers groove to catchy music and engage in water play fun.
You can be part of it too if you have the permitted water guns (See tip #3).
The party wraps up with a countdown and blasts from water cannons, alongside high-flying aerialists who will give you a refreshing cool-down in the park.
There are safe zones, so you can still check out the festivities without getting wet yourself.
Here are some tips to chill out at Soak Out:
- Know the starting points
Every day at 3pm (or 5.30pm on Saturdays), two floats set sail from Far Far Away or Sci-Fi City. Tag along to the Lagoon Stage to join in the water party, or reserve your spot in front of the Lagoon Stage at 3pm for some good procession photos.
- Waterproof your phones and cameras for photo opp
Bring waterproof covers for your phone and camera since you won’t want to miss the photo opportunities, especially if you are going to be in the thick of the action.
- Leave your water guns at home
For safety reasons, only two types of water guns are allowed. And both can be purchased from the carts around the water fight area.
- Bring clothes to change
If you’re planning to join in the water party, bring another set of clothing so you won’t end up dripping wet. Store your extra clothes in the lockers in USS to avoid getting them soaked. Or you could always get new clothes from the retail outlets.
- If you don’t want to get wet, stay out of the wet zone
If you are aquaphobia, avoid the Lagoon Stage from 3pm to 3.30pm and use this opportunity to hop onto your favourite rides (since most should be congregating at the lagoon). Otherwise, look out for the wet-dry boundary so you can still check out the festivities while staying out of the fire, err water blasts.
Soak Out After Party
On selected dates (mostly Fridays and Saturdays), you can continue to chill out in an evening after-party at the New York Public Library from 6pm to 9pm. Non-day guests who wish to just attend this event can do so; just get the After 5pm passes at S$55.
We recommend these outdoor rides: Canopy Flyer, Enchanted Airways, Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey, and the Battlestar Galactica. Jump on and zoom through the night skies for a different experience.
