Further details of Universal Studios Singapore's Sesame Street dark ride revealedSubmitted by Nick Sim on Friday, May 25, 2012 08:15
Further information has emerged about the new Sesame Street-themed dark ride that will open at Universal Studios Singapore later in 2012.
Today Online reports that the attraction will be located on the corner of the park's New York Street area, and confirms the Sesame Street theme. Ahead of the ride's debut, a new show starring Bert, Oscar and Cookie Monster from the popular kids' TV show will begin performances on Monday, May 28, 2012.
The Sesame Street dark ride is expected to use a similar ride system to E.T. Adventures at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Japan. The report quotes Andrea Teo, vice-president of Resorts World Sentosa (which hosts Universal Studios Singapore), as saying that it will be "wacky", but will still offer "thrill" and "adventure".
The new ride will form the centrepiece of a new Sesame Street sub-land, which is also expected to incorporate a number of smaller flat rides and a meet-and-great area. Characters breakfasts with characters from the show will also be on offer.
