Theme Parks & Family Fun
A key theme park here is Universal Studios Singapore with its rollercoasters and other thrilling rides. It’s within easy reach of properties like lyf one-north Singapore, a two-minute walk from the one-north MRT station and within the dynamic one-north business park; located in the Queenstown area, it features eight special precincts and more than 400 leading companies as well as corporate universities and institutes of higher learning, while being 30 minutes to and from the CBD.

Aquarium and Dolphin Island that offers encounters with bottlenose dolphins.
