It was clear to me some years ago when I looked at how some mass
activity centres like Haw Par villa or even visit to sentosa's
attractions, of which the cost of the attraction visit to sentosa can
amount to 75 dollars for each person.
It was costly to sustain for ordinary Singaporeans. It was only when
they break up the cost separately for the entrance fee, whereby the
visitation to take a train to roam around the island without specific
set of destination of visits that increased the numbers of it.
It is costly for singaporeans to make regular visit to costly places
which does not have very strong sustaining attractions of interests to
keep the crowds coming back to them.
Perhaps only one visit per year or 2 years is about the only way most
ordinary singaporeans can afford of it. Additionally, singaporeans are
not so use to making repeat visits to a costly destination. They often
make repeat visits only when their young children want it. Otherwise
they will not go again until when the kids grown up in their teens who
will then go on their own with their friends.
Singaporeans' mindsets are different from other people in other
countries which have the masses of new vistors who were borned and
teened and married and then raising up children of their own family
helped in contributing to the rebuiilding for the loss of repeat
visitors which got tired of these kinds of active lifestyle and thus
sidelined away from it.

This SG flyer is not sustaining income earner. The visit can only
worth one visit a year for the singpaoreans. The majority of tits
business has ot depend on tourists who wish to have a overall view of
Singaproe before they leave for home.
The same goes to that "rubber bumper" located at the clark quay at the
road side of river valley road. That piece of "rubber band" jump where
2 seated persons bumped up and down seem to be quiet and seepy with
occasional use by visitors and this seems hard in sustaining the cost
Even some night clubs had felled into emptiness. I remember someone
youngsters told me that the minstry of sound which was popular in
clark quay was revamped becasue there was no "business" inside there.
The crowds got tired and there was nothing exiciting to keep them to
come again. Thus that club had to make costly changes and upgrade it
The Papist government should release some CPF monies to their rightful
ownerships for some faimily gathering and funds. Singaporeans are nothing
but work and work and in the end, the ruling Lee's Temasek and GICs
benefitted. Singaporeans are largely slaves to the ruling elites.
In reality, Singapore kena conned by the operators of the IRs.
In addition to operating for casinos (mainly for tourists),
they were supposed to provide healthy family entertainment
and good fun to Singaporeans and our kids...like Universal
They are out to fleece Singaporeans. A comparison
of annual passes for family...between LA universal studio
and RW universal studio will tell us ...RW is out to con
LA Universal Studio charge Americans only US$99 for a
12 month Premium Star Pass (with a FOC pass for guest
of pass holder)
For the same pass, RW Universal Studio charge Singaporeans
a whopping S$1,098. (See price comparison in websites below)
Singaporean should boycott the IRs.
(Annual pass price at LA)
(Annual pass price at RW Sentosa.)
