Singapore’s Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), one of the island’s two integrated resorts, will be resuming operations from 1 July 2020.

Yes, this includes both their attractions and their dining establishments.

Resumption of attractions

Universal Studios Singapore (USS), will be reopening its doors this Wednesday, 1 July 2020, and subsequently every Thursday through Sunday. Most rides will be available, with the exception of shows and street entertainment options.

The RWS Casino will open on the same day, but will operate at a reduced capacity: the list is limited only to existing Genting Rewards members and/or Annual Levy Holders.

Rigorous measures in the casino include: providing as much fresh air circulation, mandatory face masks, limiting the number of players per gaming table, and installing antimicrobial-coated acrylic “safety shields” at all gaming tables and gaming machines for protection of both guests and dealers.

Apart from USS and the RWS Casino, the marine realm over at the S.E.A. Aquarium will also be resuming operations this weekend, 4 July 2020.

To assure guest safety, both Universal Studios Singapore and the S.E.A. Aquarium will take a careful and controlled approach to this re-opening. During this initial phase, all guests, including Annual and Season Pass Holders, are required to make an online advanced reservation and book the date of their visit prior to visiting the park.

As part of the Safe Experience principles in place, all rides will impose an alternate row seating measures, with family or group (up to five) occupying the same row. All rides will be wiped down after every use, and all 3D glasses will be disinfected after every use.

Dine-in options are now available

Besides attractions, RWS has resumed dining-in at a selection of their signature dining establishments, complete with safe management measures in place.

These measures encompass digitalised systems like menu viewing via QR code and contactless payment set up at all Point-of-Sales counters to reduce contact between service staff and guests.
