my paper

#1: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA

A PAIR of roller coasters designed for the hardiest of thrill-seekers.

The Cylon, a suspended roller coaster, and the seated Human propel one up to 14 storeys in the air through several inversions, a zero-G roll, a cobra roll, corkscrew turns, vertical loops and near collisions.

#2: REVENGE OF THE MUMMY

A CHILLING roller-coaster ride through a haunted, dark Egyptian tomb.

One can expect a robotic warrior mummy, dramatic stage effects or some tomb-related prop at every unexpected turn and tummy-churning drop.

#3: JURASSIC PARK RAPIDS ADVENTURE

A RIDE through a rapidly flowing waterway in the Jurassic compound, where dinosaurs roam free.

The ride, which takes place on a circular raft instead of a rectangular one, is supposed to be more thrilling as one does not know which direction the raft is hurtling in.

#4: SHREK 4-D ADVENTURE AT FAR FAR AWAY CASTLE

A 4-D animated adventure presented theatre-style, with strobe lights, moving seats and generous sprays of donkey saliva. It's so family-friendly, even guide dogs are permitted inside to experience the show with their owners.

#5: CANOPY FLYER IN THE LOST WORLD

ENJOY a bird's-eye view of Jurassic Park and the refreshing Sentosa breeze in this outdoor aerial ride.

You can pretend that your ride is a flying pteranodon - a winged dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period - as your legs barely skim the tree tops while you circle The Lost World.

#6: PANTAGES HOLLYWOOD THEATER

THIS is a 1,500-seat indoor theatre fully equipped to host major Broadway musicals. One can catch the infamous Universal Classic Monsters in "Monster Rock" - a rock 'n' roll-style revue.

Fitted with cutting-edge cinematic technology, this theatre features great music, dancing, comedy, special effects and pyrotechnics galore.

#7: WATERWORLD

THIS sensational live show is based on the blockbuster film Waterworld, that 1995 postapocalyptic action/science -fiction film which depicted the end of civilisation, caused by melted polar ice caps. Watch performers execute death-defying stunts while dodging explosions and fake bullets.

#8: LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! HOSTED BY STEVEN SPIELBERG

WITNESS the magic of special effects as an empty sound stage becomes the setting for a major hurricane about to hit New York City. Watch how hurricane-force winds whip the sea into a frenzy and batter the boathouse you're standing in.
