Yes, SeaWorld Orlando is opening a new Sesame Street land in 2019, but we think the most compelling new Sesame Street attraction next year is coming to PortAventura's SésamoAventura land.
Created by the interactive dark ride experts at Sally, Europe's first Sesame Street-themed dark ride will include a 10-minute pre-show experience and nearly six-minute ride. Sally teased the ride at last month's IAAPA Attractions Expo with a Big Bird animatronic at its booth.
"Detective Grover will be your guide through this interactive adventure, urging guests to collect clues that will help solve a mystery happening on Sesame Street," Sally said in is press release. "With numerous animatronic characters, immersive scenery, and interactive gameplay, this mixed media attraction will appeal to guests of all ages."
The as-yet-unnamed ride will include more than 2,000 "clues" for collection, including both screen-based and practical targets. The ride will include eight projection screens:
The new experience should enable visitors to enjoy time actually interacting with Sesame Street's characters, instead of just going on Sesame Street-themed carnival rides. No word yet on a specific opening date. PortAventura has not yet posted its operating calendar for 2019.
