Some 6,000 Straits Times readers were treated to an exclusive party last night at the Universal Studios Singapore in Sentosa.

The theme park, which is usually closed in the evening, kept its doors open as part of a promotion for readers who had attended the Straits Times Appreciates Readers (Star) concert last month.

Concert-goers were invited to visit the Universal Studios for free this weekend - either Saturday or Sunday. All rides, shows and other attractions in the park are free. Readers also each received a ticket to the Singapore Flyer.

Last night, although the party began only at 7.30pm, lines began to form as early as 6.15pm. The park closed at 11.30pm.

Background story

Rare chance

"If I had not been given this chance to come today, I probably wouldn't come on my own because the tickets are too expensive and my family won't be able to afford it. I'm really glad to be here today and I plan to go on all the rides."

HENG MEI HUI, 13, who was one of 26 teens who received tickets for the event from sponsor Tenet insurance
