An update on the dolphins being used for RWS Marine Life Park.

Quote:
RWS relocates 7 dolphins to Philippines
Posted: 08 January 2011 2004 hrs

SINGAPORE: Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) says it has relocated seven dolphins to the Philippines as part of its overall strategy to set up a satellite facility identical to its permanent operations in Singapore.

The dolphins are destined for RWS' yet-to-be-completed Marine Life Park.

RWS adds that it has set up an animal hospital and laboratory in the Philippines, hired a vet who specialises in marine mammals to support its consulting veterinary team and continue with its husbandry and behaviour training programmes.

The integrated resort says the relocation of the dolphins in December last year from a holding area in Malaysia's Langkawi island to the Philippines was done to enhance and expand the training and development of the dolphins and trainers as well as to continue integrating the dolphins into social groupings.

RWS will also start preparations to commence its long-term goal of developing a breeding programme for the dolphins.

It says details of the Marine Life Park are still being finalised.

The care and well-being of the dolphins are of paramount importance and they will be moved to Singapore only when the facility is ready, fully complying with international regulations, which include the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna, says RWS.

There were originally nine dolphins at the Langkawi holding area, but two died in October from an acute bacterial infection. The dolphins were caught from the wild at Solomon Islands in January last year.

Take a stroll to Sentosa island
By Jason Tan | Posted: 29 January 2011 2355 hrs

SINGAPORE: Sentosa is now just a stroll away from VivoCity, with the opening of the Sentosa boardwalk.

And travelling to the island on foot could now be a more fun experience.

This S$70 million boardwalk is lined with themed gardens, shops and eateries.

It is convenient for the elderly and handicapped too.

There are travellators and a covered walkway for rainy days.

To encourage more people to walk to Sentosa, the entrance fee to the island for those who enter on foot will only be S$1.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean was on site to launch the new walkway.

"The boardwalk is a wonderful way of connecting Singapore together with the main island. It allows both Singaporeans and tourists an additional way of getting onto Sentosa to enjoy its delights. But it's also a place where Singaporeans and tourists can come to enjoy the view, the many facilities here at the boardwalk," he said.

So far, the boardwalk has been a hit with visitors.

"I think it's good, another experience, very nice, and it's sheltered," said a visitor.

"I like it, very beautiful. The first time I'm here," said another.

"It's a lot healthier to actually walk on foot. And I think it also helps to alleviate some of the traffic conditions. As you can see it can get crowded sometimes during the rush hours over here," said a third visitor.

Battlestar Galactica roller coaster to reopen on Feb 21
By Imelda Saad | Posted: 02 February 2011 1443 hrs

SINGAPORE: After almost a year of being grounded, the world's tallest duelling roller coaster, the Battlestar Galactica, will resume operations on February 21.

Channel NewsAsia understands that authorities have given Universal Studios Singapore the required license to reopen the ride.

In a statement, Universal Studios said officials had worked closely with Singapore authorities and theme park safety experts to determine the cause of the failure and to correct the fault.

The ride went through months of re-engineering and thousands of test cycles.

It was shut down in March last year, just weeks after a grand opening of the theme park, after a failure had been detected on one of the seats during routine checks.

The fault was attributed to fatigue cracks detected in a welded component of the seat's support structure, the part which attaches the coaster's seat to its frame.

All welded components for the seats have since been replaced with a new machined part.

Prior to re-opening, Universal Studios Singapore will host a series of special events, including dedicated ride access times for team members of Resorts World Sentosa, invited guests from the ride's sponsor Panasonic and annual pass holders.

During this period, park guests may also be invited to ride on the coaster as operational procedures are refined.

Mr John Hallenbeck, Vice President of Park Operations, Resorts World Sentosa, said: "Battlestar Galactica is a signature and prominent ride at Universal Studios Singapore and we are so excited about it taking to the skies again. We expect sellout crowds and are advising guests who have been waiting for Battlestar Galactica to book their February tickets in advance."

Battlestar Galactica, themed after the hit TV show about an on-going battle between Cylons and Humans, is comprised of both the suspended 'Cylon' coaster and the seated 'Human' coaster that chase each other on twisting integrated tracks. Riders on both coasters experience unbelievable thrills as they zoom, loop, turn and narrowly avoid collision.

Each Battlestar Galactica track is a kilometer-long and the ride takes approximately 90 seconds to complete.
