Universal Studios in Singapore is an awesome place to be in. Pick up the map listing all the rides and pick and choose the ones you are keen to take. There are loads of shops all over selling souvenirs. There are separate zones like Sci Fi, Jurassic Park etc with not just rides but also lots of shows like the Sesame Street Musical.
