Singapore's Resorts World Sentosa will also bring to life the first "Far Far Away Castle" from the "Shrek" movies, which will be created at the Universal Studios theme park in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. The park is to open early next year.

"Madagascar: A Crate Adventure" will be based on the popular "Madagascar" family flicks and will feature a state-of-the-art indoor boat ride with animated figures, digital projection, evocative sound and special effects, Universal said.

Southeast Asia's first and only Universal Studios theme park also will be home to the first "Far Far Away Castle," which will house attractions such as "Shrek 4-D,""Donkey Live" and "Magic Potion Spin."

The collection of six attractions, complemented by more than 10 DreamWorks Animation-themed dining and shopping outlets, also features rides suitable for the entire family, such as the fairy tale-themed junior-coaster "Enchanted Airways" and "King Julien's Beach Party Go-Round."

"Resorts World Sentosa has a sales network spanning 22 Asian cities. In each of these cities, 'Shrek' and 'Madagascar' are well-known animation films with beloved characters. We are ecstatic to have made these characters residents in Resorts World Sentosa's Universal Studios Singapore," Tan Hee Teck, chief executive officer of Resorts World Sentosa, of which Universal Studios Singapore is part, said in a statement.

"We are excited about our relationship with DreamWorks Animation and Universal Studios Parks & Resorts, and I am sure that many Asian visitors will be, too, when they see Universal Studios Singapore bring to life two of DreamWorks Animation's most successful box-office franchises."
