Democracy is more TERRIFYING than you imagine!

In the year 2011, Gonah Goodwill connected the world into a single grid. In 2012, this person brought about the complete disarmament of all nuclear weapons in the world (please don't ask if it includes North Korea). In 2013, he was elected as the leader of all Africa and Australia. He was the bringer of hope, unity to the world. He upheld democracy, our ideal of freedom. What could possibly go wrong?

Battlestar Galactica WILL be coming back!

Update: 9 November 2014

USS has begun to test the Battlestar Galactica roller coaster once again, signifying that the ride will be reopening very soon. In fact, a statement by Building and Construction Authority who administers amusement park rides in Singapore says that they had issued a modification permit for the Cylon side in October this year.

The ride feels so empty with only 1 side being tested.

Sunway Lagoon Malaysia Trip Report

Sunway Lagoon is not a big name park like Disney or Universal, but it is among the top 10 most visited water parks in Asia. It is currently home to one of the world's largest wave pools and the world's largest funnel type water slide. Although this park also has substantial theme park and wildlife park facilities, most people will associate Sunway Lagoon as a water park.

Update: Experience Nickelodeon's Lost Lagoon, Sunway Lagoon's new themed land in 2016

Visually Challenged fan evaluates Universal Studios Singapore

Hi, I'm writing based on my personal view as a person with special needs (visually impaired) when going to theme parks. Basically, so far, as i can remember, i had been to 2 theme parks. One is in Genting and one is USS. Let's not talk about the one at Genting as i do not have much memories about it because i went thereat the age of 12.

My experience at South Korea's Everland

Hello, readers of 'Second Drop'. As someone who has recently been to South Korea's Everland, I have been asked to share my experience (as a guest publisher) with the readers of this blog. 

To briefly introduce the Everland Resort, to those who may not have heard of it, Everland is South Korea's largest theme park that was opened in 1976, and it is located in Yongin, a city in Gyeonggi-do province. In addition to its main attractions and rides, there is also a zoo and water park named Caribbean Bay; it is definitely a 3-in-1 experience should you ever visit it.
