The first area we went to was The Sci Fi City Zone, where the Transformers ride is located at. Express pass was our treasured item that day, as we fast forwarded ourselves to the front of the line and boarded the ride in no time. The 4D effect of the simulation ride was indeed a thrilling one, familiar Transformers (Megatron, Bumblebee, Optimus) were all present as well.
|Oh Camaro! :P|
From there we waltz our way to Far Far Away Zone, since that was the other main attraction there. The line were massive to watch a short clippet of Shrek's adventure, maybe because this attraction caters to a wider crowd (aka kids and older peeps).
After these two attractions, and souvenir hunts, we then back tracked the map methodologically, making Far Far Away as our starting point. That place made me happy, it shares the same humor value as the Shrek production, we can see the Fairy God Mother potion shop, castle in the island and medieval theme architecture.
From there we headed to the Jurassic Park ride. We opted for the Canopy Flyer, the drier ride since we did not want to be drenched that day. The other ride was the Rapid Adventures, if you don't mind getting soaked, this could be a good ride for you.
Don't worry too much though, there are drying pods available around, for about $2 if not mistaken.
Our next stop was Ancient Egypt, where we rode the Revenge of the Mummy Ride. Another well conceived simulated ride, we felt the sudden rush, flaming blaze and mummy scare all together at one go. Pretty awesome. This Zone has Egyptian architectures theme all around, kinda makes me think of Sunway Pyramid at that time.
But the Mummy Ride had nothing against the next ride we took, which was Battlestar Galactica. There are two different roller coaster rides there, Human and Cylon. Human (red) is much milder compared to its counterpart, which made Cylon (blue) a more thrilling ride. If you have time for only one, play Cylon!
|Yup, rode both :)|
|Oh Woody Woodpecker! :)|
New York served us with Steven Spielberg's special effect studio called Lights, Camera, Action, where we experienced the special effects of hurricane and explosion. There was also the 80's childhood favorite, Sesame Street performing in front of the Public Library Replica.

Our last stop was Madagascar, where we rode the Crate Adventure over the carousel called King Julien's Party go Round. The Crate Adventure is basically a story telling journey of the misadventure of Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria over a boat ride. Mild but definitely enjoyable.
All in all, the Express Pass allowed us to experience all the targeted rides we planned for ourselves that day. Of course, if you wish to ride again any of the attractions, feel free to do so, but you would have to line up again as the Express Pass can only be used once.
|Yup, I'll just sit here and display my sexy legs while you go ahead with the rides again!|
