Europe’s First ‘Sesame Street’ Dark Ride Announced

A dark ride is an indoor amusement ride that features specially-lit scenery with curated animation and special effects.

The “Sesame Street”-themed dark ride will power up next year at SesamoAventura, a “Sesame Street”-branded center within the Spanish park. The 14,000-square-foot building will host a 10-minute preshow and 5:50-minute ride experience, guided by Detective Grover, who gives guests clues to help solve a mystery.

Additional attraction highlights include:

  • 8 projection screens: four projection-mapped screens on dimensional sets with a practical target integration, one 90-degree curved screen with animatronic and show element synching, as well as two, 180-degree curved, fully-immersive screens, which allow guests to fly through Count’s Castle and dive down into Oscar’s Trashcan, plus a Hall of Fame scoreboard
    • More than 2,000 clues/targets (virtual and practical)

      “This partnership with the internationally recognized global leader in children’s education and entertainment, Sesame Workshop, along with the collaboration with Sally Corporation, as a dark ride specialist, will contribute to creating an attraction that will be a unique experience within the range of the family entertainment offer,” says Fernando Aldecoa, general director, PortAventura World.
