Universal Studios Singapore ride Battlestar Galactica closed

I went to Universal Studios Singapore once and spent a significant time in Battlestar Galactica, the best attraction in this Singapore Sentosa Island theme park. I even thought to buy a year pass to come back to RWS Universal Studios but I am now glad I have not done it. According to media, Battlestar Galactica is closed for good. This star attraction was closed for almost half a year (since last summer).

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) has never published a statement to announce the news or gave any reason regarding the closure. When the RWS was opened, Battlestar Galactica was closed for almost 9 months after some technical problems. The troubled ride was world’s tallest dueling roller coaster offering two experiences on Human and Cylon nested tracksç The Cylon one was quite fan with near miss fly-overs over buildings and terrain.

According to Singapore based MyPaper, Resorts World Sentosa will probably revamp Battlestar Galactica with another movie-themed one and this new ride, with a fresh name and new interiors, will be ready by end 2014.

Battlestar Galactica ride was probably the most popular ride in USS. Although it is better to close the ride instead of someone getting hurt, it USS will not be same without it: in a bad way.
