1. You’ll be dazzled by the Glitter! Sparkles! Rainbows!
From a shimmery entrance arc to bedazzled trees along Hollywood, feast your eyes on vibrantly coloured sets that are sure to lift your spirits just by looking at them. In fact, the sequins on the entrance arc and Hollywood Lagoon stage are held together in a way that allows them to flap and reflect light at various angles, in turn giving the illusion that you’re being transported through a *magical* rainbow each time the wind blows.
Even the storefront of Universal Studios Store got a dazzling makeover!
Here is a list of photo spots at TrollsTopia we recommend for your next OOTD.
2. You won’t be able to help but sing and dance along
Sing and dance along to two live musical shows, TrollsTopia Show and Hug Time Trio as part of Queen Poppy’s coronation celebrations. Filled with lots of puns and hit songs from the Trolls soundtrack, you’ll find yourself laughing and bopping along to Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop This Feeling before you even know it!
TrollsTopia Show (15-minute): 12pm and 2pm daily
Hug Time Trio (12-minute): 4pm and 6pm daily
Both shows take place at Hollywood Lagoon Stage.
3. You get to meet and greet Poppy and Branch
Following the two live musical shows, get up close and personal with your two favourite Trolls, Poppy and Branch! They say good vibes rub off easily – what more when you’re in the presence of the eternally optimistic Queen Poppy?
4. You stand to win prizes at Glitterpalooza (FREE!)
Enter Glitterpalooza, a giant disco-like box, and attempt to catch as many tickets in cloud of flying confetti while the music plays. At the end of 30 seconds, you and your friends are to empty all the confetti and tickets you caught in a bucket, and each guest is entitled to draw one such ticket that may be exchanged for a prize. Prizes include retail and F&B vouchers, Trolls merchandise and complimentary VR experiences.

6. You get to escape into alternate realities
Unwind as you leave all your cares behind with two virtual reality (VR) experiences: VR Beat Feat and VR Troll Art.
VR Beat Feat is a fast-paced VR music video game where you get to shield yourself from/‘bash’ the ‘beats’ coming at you from the catchy soundtrack of Trolls. A true test of your rhythm and coordination if you ask me.
VR Troll Art is an endless space of rainbows, creativity and imagination where you get to create 3D visual art with Tilt Brush and the symphony of colours from the world of Trolls. If you like what you’ve painted, you may even purchase your artwork printed in a photo, keychain and magnet from The Dark Room at S$45 a set.
