USS Christmas 2014

Media Invite

I’ve been to the USS several times with the kids, but the trip there last week was the best to-date because I tried almost every ride in the park! All thanks to the kind folks from USS, we received not just complimentary tickets to check out the Christmas program but also the Express passes so we could bypass the long queues and go straight for the rides! I’ve always been put off by long queues, which was the reason why I had not taken many of the rides in USS. I say, always buy the Express passes when you visit places like the USS! They make the whole experience so much more enjoyable! Plus, during the Christmas season, the whole USS is bursting with joyous music everywhere and happy smiles on the streets - I absolutely love the atmosphere!

The best part about celebrating Christmas at USS has got to be the show and meet-and-greet with the wonderful characters from Sesame Street. It was so fun to see the characters being so cheery and playful on the streets!
