Sesame Street dark ride for PortAventura World is now open!

The new attraction is the first Sesame Street dark ride in Europe. The announcement was made at the International Attractions Expo with a life-sized animatronic Big Bird on display, telling guests about the new adventure he and his friends are about to embark on. Continuing PortAventura’s policy of constant investment and the goal of offering new and exciting experiences to visitors every year, 2019 will feature a new attraction suitable for all family members - a Sesame Street-themed dark ride to be located in SesamoAventura, a dedicated Sesame Street area featuring the iconic characters and where children are center stage.

The near six-minute long dark ride attraction is housed in a newly constructed 14,000 square foot building and features a 11 minute pre-show and 5:50 minute ride experience.

This interactive dark ride that takes you on an exciting mission, traveling down Sesame Street in taxi cabs equipped with ‘Clue Collectors.’  You’ll get to help some of the most popular Sesame Street characters who are trying to solve a mystery.  The story goes like this; “The citizens of Sesame Street baked the World’s Biggest Cookie for the Cookie Day Parade…but it has gone missing!  The event will have to be postponed unless we can help Detective Grover solve the mystery of ‘The Big Cookie Caper!’  We’ll follow a trail of cookie crumb clues down Sesame Street, collecting them as we go, trying to figure out where the Big Cookie is and who took it.  Only then will Cookie Day be saved!
