Sci-fi themed roller coaster Battlestar Galactica will re-open at Singapore’s Universal Studios this week after several stop-starts over the past five years.
Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) said Monday that the world’s tallest dueling roller coaster will re-open on May 27, with all-new ride vehicles. The ride will feature all-new two-seater vehicles that are designed to give “every rider a more intimate and personal ride experience and will enhance the feeling of speed and thrill the ride already offers”, the resort operator added.
The troubled ride - inspired by the hit TV series produced by Universal Cable productions - first shut down just a week after the theme park opened backi in 2010. At that time it closed down due to technical problems, when cracks were found in the seat-post supports of the coaster cars. It re-opened in February 2011 but was then closed in July 2013 to undergo a major overhaul and review.
