PortAventura World is opening for its 2019 season this month, and to celebrate, the park is opening a brand-new family-friendly dark ride – Sesame Street: Street Mission.
Sesame Street: Street Mission is PortAventura World’s first dark ride, and the first shooter-style dark ride be inspired by the one and only Sesame Street. The new ride takes riders on an adventure to help Detective Grover successfully complete his secret mission.
The ride includes a pre-show and 3D ride elements, as well as animatronics and immersive experiences through 3D video mapping technology. The ride was developed in collaborating with Sesame Workshop and Sally Corporation, one of the leaders in developing dark rides and animatronics.
“SésamoAventura is an incredible area that provides memorable experiences for the whole family, said Fernando Aldecoa, managing director of PortAventura World. “With the addition of Street Mission, the first ever dark ride in Europe inspired by the iconic children’s brand, PortAventura World is strengthened as a unique family tourist destination.”
In addition to Sesame Street: Street Mission, the resort will also be adding a new hotel and expanding its Convention Centre.
On June 1, PortAventura World will host the grand opening of its new 4-star themed accommodation, Hotel Colorado Creek. The hotel will offer 150 rooms distributed across three buildings. The hotel’s theming will be inspired by the gold rush era of the Wild West, and will expand upon the story of Hotel Gold River, Hotel Callaghan’s and Hotel Mansión de Lucy.
