Battlestar Galactica is a twin roller coaster located at Universal Studios Singapore in Sentosa, Singapore. The attraction has two tracks which interact and cross over each other. They are known as "Cylon" and "Human". The former is an inverted roller coaster with five inversions while the latter is a standard sit-down roller coaster without inversions.
History[edit | edit source]
A week after opening, a problem was identified on one of the trains during a morning test run of the Human side. On March 25, 2010 Battlestar Galactica was closed. A press release from Resorts World Sentosa in August revealed that higher than anticipated stress and vibration levels led to a component failure which caused a seat assembly to detach. Resorts World Sentosa also stated that Vekoma was in the process of designing a new component, which would have to be manufactured, installed, and tested before Battlestar Galactica could reopen. Battlestar Galactica reopened in February 2011.
The ride closed again in July 2013 for review. The attraction reopened on May 27, 2015 following modifications to the trains. The outermost seats were removed, reducing the number of seats per row to two.
At some point Cylon's track was repainted grey and Human's track a darker shade of red.
