Battlestar Galactica is BACK with a Vengeance!

After completing 1 year and 10 months of National Service (ahem ahem), Battlestar Galactica is finally back on May 27 2015. The new version features 2 abreast seats which offers a greater sense of freedom and operates 2 trains per side. In the meantime, we can only hope that the other roller coasters in USS  (as well as our MRT lines) are exempted from National Breakdown Service.

Top 10 Not-So-Scary Roller Coasters in the World 2015!

When it comes to top Roller Coasters, most people think of huge, towering rides like Fujiyama and Fury 325. However, nearly 2000 out of 3000 roller coasters worldwide, including some of the best, are actually the less scary junior/family coasters. These rides come in all shapes and sizes, from wild mouse through motorbikes and even spinning coasters. These family roller coasters can entertain almost any age group, and are the true backbone of the roller coaster world!

All video POVs shown in this article belong to the respective parks, Theme Park Review or Coaster Force. This list is compiled in May 2015 so newer coasters will not be included!

Bungee Jump is Coming to Singapore!

I am not kidding you. From the end of 2015, a new attraction AJ Hackett will open near Underwater World, Sentosa. This towering attraction will feature several fear-of-heights attractions like Bungee Jumping and Giant Swing. This will certainly be great news if you are an adrenaline junkie short of cash, for you no longer have to spend $2000 and travel to New Zealand to experience this.

Singapore's 2nd Theme Park will be in Jurong?

I know, when it comes to Jurong, most of you are thinking High Speed Rail (HSR). However, the HSR is just one part of a huge development that will transform the district into a retail, commercial and entertainment hub. As our dear PM said, Jurong will be Singapore’s new CBD. And what better place to include Singapore’s next major attraction - Our Second Theme Park! As with all predictions posts, the contents here are all my prediction and there is no guarantee whether it will come true or not.

Second Drop - One Year On

Hi everyone, today, 8 May 2015, marks the first anniversary of Second Drop – The Attractions Blog. On this very day, one year ago, I shared about my experience riding my first roller coaster. Since then, I have talked about all things theme parks, from money saving tips to the latest attractions. I think I also learnt a lot from this experience, not least of which I understand the internet and search engines much better. To this, I really like to thank each and every one of you, my readers, for your support and feedback.
