As part of its 5th anniversary celebrations, Universal Studios Singapore (USS) launched a new ride, Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey, on Wednesday (8th April).
The rollercoaster – touted as the world’s first suspended rollercoaster themed after the franchise – can be found at the Giant’s Castle in the theme park’s Far Far Way zone, USS said in a news release.
The ride will last approximately 2 minutes and tell an original tale with 23 animatronics characters, including Puss In Boots, who originally appeared in the Shrek franchise, and Kitty Softpaws.
Upon the announcement, Resorts World Sentosa Senior Vice-President of Attractions Mr John Hallenbeck said:
The overwhelming response to The Dance for the Magic Beans live street show, which premiered last September, is telling of the popularity that “Puss In Boots” enjoys in this region. Families and thrill-seekers alike can now “Ride the Movies” onboard this new attraction, which brings to life the characters and adventures of “Puss In Boots”.
We also heard that it took USS a whole 2 years to design, engineer, and produce!
DreamWorks Animation Global Head of Location Based Entertainment Mr Yoshi Maruyama added:
We are continually working to provide new and immersive brand engagements for a global audience and the Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey attraction is sure to deliver yet another wonderful fan experience.
So, time to get your tickets? 😉
