The Battlestar Galactica, a star attraction at the Universal Studios Singapore theme park, is closed for good.
The sci-fi themed rollercoaster, which has been closed since July 2013, will be replaced by a new ride by the end of this year.
MyPaper reported that Resorts World Sentosa, which manages the theme park, said that the Battlestar is “unavailable as it undergoes an attraction review”.
It was also reported that the new ride will follow a movie theme, and is expected to have new interiors and a fresh coat of paint, among other changes.
Touted as the world’s tallest dueling roller coaster, the “Battlestar Galactica” ride has been plagued by problems since the theme park opened in March 2010. The roller coaster was closed for over nine months, a week after it opened, due to technical problems. It re-opened in February 2011, but was soon shut down again after cracks were found in the seat-post supports of the coaster cars.
