5 attractions in Sentosa ranked most checked-in places in S'pore

SINGAPORE - Five attractions in Sentosa, including the island itself, have been named the most checked-in places in Singapore, with Universal Studios Singapore (USS) taking the top spot, according to Facebook's Year in Review.

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) said USS has welcomed more than 15 million visitors since it opened in 2010. Visitors can look forward to the re-launch of the Battlestar Galactica: Human vs. Cylon and new inverted coaster ride, Puss In Boots' Giant Journey, when they visit the entertainment park in 2015.

The five Sentosa attractions listed also included newly-opened Trick Eye Museum - which came in at the 10th spot - and other popular attractions such as Resorts World at Sentosa and S.E.A. Aquarium, Marine Life Park, which bagged sixth and seventh spots respectively.

Over on the main island, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay were named the second and third most checked-in places respectively.

The once-troubled Singapore Flyer, which was acquired by Straco Leisure for $140 million in Nov, came in at ninth place.

Facebook's Year in Review determines which were the most talked about topics on its site such as video games, attractions and even the most popular ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) ice bucket challenge.

It said the list was compiled by analysing posts in "an aggregated, anonymised way", and then ranked them "to create a snapshot of the year" on the site.

Here are the most checked-into places in Singapore:

1. Universal Studios Singapore

2. Marina Bay Sands

3. Gardens by the Bay

4. Sentosa Island

5. Singapore Zoo

6. Resorts World at Sentosa

7. S.E.A. Aquarium, Marine Life Park
