Battlestar Galactica roller coaster ride in Universal Studios Singapore

Features, Mindanaoan Update, Reviews, Singapore, Tourism, Travel
The Battlestar Galactica rides in Universal Studios Singapore are two of the most popular in the said theme park - and for very good reason. Just imagine this - lifts, drops, cobra rolls, inversions (360 degrees!), a Zero-G roll, corkscrews and spins plus the fact that you go up as high as 14 storeys above the ground - all in just 90 seconds!
