Universal Studios Singapore welcomed its 10 millionth visitor this week.

Singaporean Joanne Tan, 40, was greeted by Marilyn Monroe and Woody Woodpecker among other staff dressed up as famous celebrities or cartoon characters.

She also received gifts worth more than $800 including an exclusive tour of the amusement park, a fully paid for dinner and theme park merchandise.

"The surprise welcome made us feel like superstars, it felt like we were in the movies," said Tan. "This is actually the first time we are visiting Universal Studios Singapore, so I am really excited."

Universal Studios Singapore opened in March 2010 as an attraction at integrated resort Resorts World Sentosa. It offers 23 rides as well as shows and attractions.
