uss & zoo wheelchair hire?

My wife has limited mobility walking and on previous trips have limited our sightseeing attractions, this october we would like to visit the zoo and to a lesser extent uss, i know they have wheelchairs for hire at uss, does anyone know the cost? and are there wheelchairs available at the zoo? we intend to do breakfast at the zoo, we are thinking about uss just so we can tell our grandchildren about it, also have noted on previous posts reports of elderly visitors having a good time at uss, we are both 65+ are we entitled to the discount prices in singapore at various venues or are they only for locals?

USS tickets are half price ($36) for visitors aged 65 and over, regardless of nationality.

The 3 shows - Monster Rock, Lights Camera Action & Waterworld and the Shrek 4D adventure ride are good for all ages and allow wheelchair access.

The Singapore zoo is very wheelchair friendly. Wheelchairs loans are free and motorized scooters can be rented for $35. These get taken up pretty quickly though so I would suggest you go early in the morning.
