The Minions are back, as are the dinosaurs from Jurassic World. You can now catch Jurassic World Dominion in cinemas, while Minions: The Rise of Gru is coming to a theatre near you from 30th June 2022.
To take you from the silver screen to real life, you can meet-and-greet these movie characters at Universal Studios Singapore. Look forward to a fresh lineup of activities at Universal Singapore Studios like partying with Illumination’s Minions and feasting at a Jurassic World-themed dining experience.
If the charms of the Minions prove irresistible, grab the Groovy Summer package. Come say ‘bello’ to the loveable Minions who’ve mostly ditched their iconic blue overalls for funky ’70s garb for their meet and greet.
The newest Minion from Minions: The Rise of Gru is Otto, who’s just as cheeky as the other 3 Minions. But he’ll be on his best behaviour for a pic or two. It won’t be hard to spot him and the rest, as they’ll be at the eye-catching Lagoon Stage that’s been dressed in psychedelic neons.
The meet-and-greet isn’t the only place to get your fill of the Minions’ new look. Their groovy florals can be found at the ’70s inspired Flower Power photo ops scattered around Universal Studios Singapore for you to take more pics with the fam.
After the show, put on your fiercest look for a photo with the Minions in their jumpsuits and the kung fu masters.
You’ll even get to catch the Minions’ kungfu antics off the silver screen when you make your way over to the New York Public Library. The stage has been set for the Minion Fu Show, where they’ll show off their kicks and karate chops alongside other martial arts experts.
In between chasing after Minions and sitting on rides, peckish package holders will find Minions-themed snacks and food at the Groovy Delights food cart on Hollywood. You’ll be able to score yourself a cup of Minions Popcorn (worth $10) – just keep your eyes peeled for the popcorn truck to redeem your snack cup.
Guests can redeem their free cup of popcorn after spending $15 on F&B at Universal Studios Singapore.
Otherwise, make use of the free vouchers included in your package to snag an adorable Minions Popcorn Bucket that comes with a strap for hands-free snacking. The vouchers include:
You can also spend your vouchers on other Minions merch such as Minions goggles, plushies, and a backpack.
Those with a sweet tooth can also look out for the Groovy Delights Minions Cart. Minions-themed dessert bites like Minion Choux Puff ($10) and Minion Swiss Roll ($8) might just be too cute to take a bite out of, but they’ll go down easy with a Minion Slushie ($9) that’ll also cool you off from the heat.
If the fam needs something more substantial, refuel at KT’s Grill, which has been transformed into a Minions-themed diner. The Minions’ faces can be found on more goodies here, like the Minion Surf & Turf with steak and prawns, and the Cheeky Cookies ‘N Creme Shake for a decadent treat.

The Minions are always a crowd-pleaser but here’s a treat for dino-heads of all ages out there. You’ll be able to get up close and personal with prehistoric dinosaurs with the Jurassic World Dominion Dining Adventure.
The adventure begins when night falls after a whole day of rides and attractions at Universal Studios Singapore. The forested area will start stirring as its nocturnal residents venture out to meet curious guests.
Spot the young hatchling still squawking within its shell. Now’s your chance for selfies with the wee one.
If you’re daring, go on a search for Blue, the velociraptor from the Jurassic World franchise. Just be cautious not to rile her up. If needed, park guides are around to tame the raptor, so you can carefully approach Blue for a swaggy selfie to brag about.

Besides Blue and the newborn raptor, be on alert for an even bigger dinosaur lurking in the shadows. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, will also make its way down for a meet-and-greet.
For the carnivorous, expect to chow down on dishes like juicy BBQ pork ribs and beef skewers.
Dinomania continues on at dinner where you can head over to the Discovery Food Court for a 4-course meal included in your package.
The 4 courses will go well with the free flow of beverages available. Kids and teetotallers – you’ll have juices and fizzy drinks. Whereas mum, dad and those above 18 can get their fair share of bubbly and wine to enjoy. And for all, free-flow ice cream to end off the meal.
The last course is a Jurassic World Jelly. We know you’ll want to feed your camera first before digging into this lemongrass osmanthus jelly.
Dinner comes with a show to keep guests entertained. There’s a cinematic presentation of paleontological facts as each course is served. It’s a win-win for families to enjoy a fancy dinner together while picking up knowledge about their favourite dinosaurs.
As you exit the theme park for the day, don’t forget to pick up your free gift – a Jurassic World tumbler to keep you hydrated wherever you go.
The blockbuster experience doesn’t have to end at dinner. The Resorts World Sentosa x Klook Jurassic World Dominion Staycation lets guests experience Jurassic World too, at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore’s themed rooms.
From $548 for 2 pax, the staycay comes with breakfast at the hotel, 2 tickets to catch the flick at Golden Village, and even a swag bag of goodies for you to bring home. It comes with a canvas tote bag, tumbler, and t-rex plushie.
