I’ve loved Sesame Street ever since I was a kid. Watching it week after week on Saturday mornings, I was transfixed by its lovable muppets, while learning a thing or two. The award winning children’s television show has since spun off numerous franchised products featuring characters like Cookie Monster, Oscar, Bert and Ernie, Big Bird, Grover and Elmo.
Thanks to a partnership between Resorts World Sentosa and Sesame Street, you can now experience these charming muppets “in the flesh” with a whimsical theme park ride. Launched by Universal Studios Singapore’s Vice President of Park Operations John Hallenbeck, Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase is the newest attraction in Universal Studios Singapore.
Located at the New York section of the theme park, the family ride brings you on a mission with super heroes Elmo and Super Grover 2.0 as they battle to stop Macaroni the Merciless from stealing all the spaghetti on Earth. You can zip through different scenes and even “travel” to space while you encounter familiar Sesame Street friends.
Visitors to Universal Studios Singapore can also meet and greet their favourite furry, feathered and funky characters from Sesame Street. Catch Elmo and friends in a musical special “When I Grow Up” or have breakfast with these cuddly monsters.
Join me now on a visual journey down Sesame Street, here in sunny Singapore!
Check out Elmo’s dance action with other muppets in a short video I took of the launch.
He was joined by several other friends, including a furry female fairy (I think she is Abby Cadabby).
Overall, I found it rather enjoyable to meet my favourite Sesame Street characters once again while reliving my childhood memories. Gauging by the universal appeal of Sesame Street, I’m sure “children of all ages” would enjoy these new additions to Universal Studios Singapore.
