Universal Studios Singapore Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase Video ! Updated with a longer video!




The brand new Universal Studios Singapore Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase had its pass holder sneak preview today and i have for you the first video put online on Youtube!

As expected it's a soft family dark ride based on the Sesame Street characters and the ride vehicle system is similar to the one used in E.T or Peter Pan's Flight, i.e that the ride vehicle can "fly" over the scenes. As you will see there is also additional video screens in the vehicle. One more thing: this first video has a length of 2 minutes which seems to me a bit short for this kind of ride. I'm not totally sure that some scenes are not missing and we will have the answer as soon as others videos will be uploaded on Youtube, i.e very soon! The ride looks cool and well done for a family ride so go ahead, watch it!

Edited: Here is another video from Eluk Oab, with a better sound and with some of the scenes missing in the previous one! But the scene where Super Grover gets caught can't be seen on this one, so you have to watch both of them!








Edited: According to Dejiki the video above is almost complete and the ride length is about 2.33min.  The scenes which are missing are: During the cut:
1. Sesame Street characters teleporting into Macaroni's Lair (projection on fog).

After the video was stopped:
1. Super Grover and Elmo standing on a pile of spaghetti
2. Elmo having lunch, with Macaroni (now a waiter) serving him spaghetti with meatballs


Personally i think that the ride is a "C+" Ticket. What do you think?

This video is almost complete, well done Sonic Byte! I've timed the ride and the full experience is about 2 mins 33 seconds long (Actual time varies because the vehicle can move slower if unload needs more time)

I have a very detailed overview at my site if you're interested.

It's interesting- here in the US, us Muppet/Sesame Street fans are always told how most countries have their own version of Sesame Street produced specifically to appeal to their audience, with sets and characters that are culturally significant. Is that not the case with Singapore? I am surprised that Big Bird, Elmo, and the others are simply dubbed over with their urban New York setting and still appeal to children in Singapore.

It's very Disney quality, I think.

@Eric Scales: Singapore is predominantly English and I myself, an 80s kid, grew up watching the American version of S.S. And also, the ride is in the NY area of USS, so I guess it would be fitting to have it in the NY setting?
