icon_STOP2019 - Sesame Street Dark Ride - Under Construction - (11/14/18) As expected, Sally Corp announced the new Sesame Street dark ride coming to PortAventura in 2019, along with a new animatronic figure of Big Bird on display at IAAPA.
    The new dark ride will give a six-minute long experience inside a 14,000 sqft building along with a 10 minute preshow experience. “Detective Grover will be your guide through this interactive adventure, urging guests to collect clues that will help solve a mystery happening on Sesame Street.  With numerous animatronic characters, immersive scenery, and interactive gameplay, this mixed media attraction will appeal to guests of all ages.”
    Inside it will feature 8 projection scenes, including 4 projection-mapped scenes, a 90 curved screen with animatronics and show element syncing and 2 180 curved screens to allow for a fly-through experience through Count’s Castle and a dive down into Oscar’s Trash can as well as one final one for the “Hall of Fame” scoreboard. This will be an interactive ride as well, with over 2,000 clues/targets, both virtual and practical.

 
    (11/8/18) A reader sent in some pictures taken a little over a month ago showing off the progress of the new building now in place at PortAventura for the park’s new dark ride project. At the time, it was said to only be a hollow but enclosed building now in place, but if anyone is out that way currently, I’d love to see if any further progress has been made.
 
    (8/8/18) According to a report posted to PAFans, PortAventura is said to be working on a new dark ride that will be themed to the Sesame Street characters. I'm told that it will cost about 15 million Euros and should be ready to open by April 2019. Special thanks to PAFans.com for the images.
