Do they allow costumed people to do the megazip? :P Or perhaps just get a Superman shirt (the one with the "S") from the DC Comics store and wear it while on the megazip? :P

They'd let me zip with a DSLR (but I didn't) and depending on the length of the cape, it won't get caught on the zip line.

And if you have more time and money:
- Singapore Zoo (IMO, it is good for Southeast Asia standard. Seeing the animals in small spaces makes my heart sad.)
- Sentosa
- Singapore Flyer
I beg to differ.

The Singapore Zoo is not just 'good for Southeast Asian standards'. It is a truly world class zoo. I have lived in 10 different cities and have visited zoos in many major cities including San Diego, and my conclusion is that the Singapore Zoo (and Night Safari) are both world class.

The animals do NOT live in small spaces and as far as possible, both zoos completely avoid the use of cages - unlike many zoos in Europe or North America.
