The Battlestar Galactica, a star attraction at the Universal Studios Singapore theme park, may be closed for good.

It was reported in MyPaper that the sci-fi themed rollercoaster, which has been closed since July 2013, will be replaced by a new ride by the end of this year.

It was also reported that the new ride will follow a movie theme, and is expected to have new interiors and a fresh coat of paint, among other changes.

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), which manages the theme park, has not issued any statements with regards to the closing of Battlestar Galactica.

RWS has only previously said that the “ride is unavailable as it undergoes an attraction review”.

Touted as the world’s tallest dueling roller coaster, the “Battlestar Galactica” ride was closed for over nine months, about a week after the theme park opened in March 2010. The ride was closed due to technical problems, when cracks were found in the seat-post supports of the coaster cars. It re-opened in February 2011.
