What’s more, Universal Studios Singapore’s Minion Land will also be getting a world’s first original ride that is exclusive to the park.

Resorts World Sentosa CEO, Mr Tan Hee Teck, said, “We are excited to break ground on Universal Studios Singapore’s newest themed zone, Minion Land. Resorts World Sentosa aims to bring fresh and compelling experiences to our guests through timely rejuvenation of our line-up of attractions, as we continue to welcome more international travellers with the opening of borders.
