The final section of the part we went to was New York.
New York is a street that is modelled after the streets of New York with its lofts with stairs outside the windows which we see often in movies, yellow cabs and of course the subway. Strolling along this street you can soak up the atmosphere and the energy of New York.
This area also houses a theatre where you can catch some plays or musical but we reached there too late to catch the last show for the day.
Our late lunch was at Mel’s Drive-in, a ’50s themed drive in restaurant with Rock-n-Roll songs in the background while you sink your teeth into the American fast food. With the sparkly red patent seats, classic jude boxes and groovy piped in tunes, it makes eating the food so much fun. And best of all, it is not exhoribitantly priced like other theme parks. The meal was a few cents short of $10 which is comparable to the prices of fast food joints.
Here I am with a splitting headache that caused me not to be able to ride the other half of the Battlestar Galatica ride – the Cylon. Thinking back, I do regret not forcing myself to just take the ride. 😦
Before I end this post, just a reminder for those who are planning to go to USS. Please pile on your sunblock when you head to USS as most of the part is not under and shade of shelter and it’s very likely to get a sunburn from the harsh sun we have in Singapore these days. Bringing along a cap or a hat would reduce the hassle of having to hold on to an umbrella but get one that covers most of your face and neck. As there will be free usage of lockers for those rides that are more thrilling, you do not have to worry about your belongings, just note that the lockers are decently sized for a normal bag and not some huge luggage or backpacking bag.
For me, I was armed with my sun hat, sunnies and sunblock for 5hrs in the park.
RWS8 back to VivoCity! Bye!
