Universal Studios Singapore Launching New Attraction, “Madagascar: A Crate Adventure”


Universal Studios Singapore, the world-class theme park within Resorts World Sentosa, the first integrated resort destination in Singapore, announced that guests can soon join the famous escapees from the New York Zoo when Madagascar : A Crate Adventure debuts on 16 May. This new theme park attraction is inspired by DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: DWA) Madagascar film series, one of the most successful animated movie franchises of all time.  Among the longest rides in Universal Studios Singapore,  Madagascar: A Crate Adventure is a nine-minute indoor flume ride that takes guests on a river boat adventure with Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo.

The Central Park “Zoosters” join forces with the eccentric leader of the local lemurs, King Julien — and Universal Studios Singapore guests — to help defeat the dreaded Foosa. Aided by the technically-savvy and hilarious Penguins, the heroes and guests together defeat the Foosa at the rim of a bubbling volcanic cauldron. Along the way, they encounter a giant alligator, wild-eyed spiders and more.

Mr. Jeffrey Katzenberg, Chief Executive Officer of DreamWorks Animation, said: “Madagascar: A Crate Adventure is the primary attraction built within the first-ever theme park zone dedicated exclusively to all things related to and inspired by our Madagascar movie series. We are excited about the way in which it allows people to interact with DreamWorks Animation’s unique characters and worlds in a memorable family experience.”

The Madagascar: A Crate Adventure attraction, the first in the world of its kind based on the Madagascar franchise, was conceptualized by some of the world’s most creative theme park designers at Resorts World Sentosa in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation and Universal Parks & Resorts.
