When we head east, it’s generally for the amazing scenery, the mysticism, the cultural diversity and the food, but there are perennial holiday favorites too, so let’s focus on the amusement parks in Asia in this post. The US may be the theme park capital of the world, but Japan comes a close second, and with some of the big names in US theme parks and other investments in the industry, the amusement parks in Asia are growing in number and size and attraction. Here’s some of the best:
1. Universal Studios, Singapore
One of the top amusement parks in Asia is the Universal Studios in Singapore. Jam-packed with shows and rides, it is a brand new park with exciting rides and themes based on movies and shows like Shrek, The Mummy, Jurassic Park and Battlestar Galactica. Completed and opened in February 2013, this Asian Theme Park expects to attract some 9.7 million tourists to the city every year to experience the excitement and thrills. It’s another reason why Singapore is fast rising up the ranks of top tourist destinations.
