Spaghetti Chasers

We were at Universal Studios Singapore last Friday for the launch of their newest ride, the Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase.

It was a huge celebration, with a special performance by Elmo & his friends, a spaghetti-cutting ceremony and a bunch of themed carnival games, as well as a preview of the ride itself, which we were all really looking forward to.

The entire New York Street in USS was decked in Sesame Street themed decorations and it all felt very happy & festive. I imagine that’s how it feels like to be walking along um, Sesame Street.

Being the Sesame Street fan that I am, I think I was more excited than the kids were and that’s saying a lot because they were pretty excited.

The ride itself is really cute. As far as thrilling roller coaster rides go, this is a level 2, with 0.5 being the Madagascar Carousel and 10 being the Battlestar Galactica. But then it’s not meant to be a scary ride because even Kirsten could ride it (she just made the height limit at 92cm). The story and setting were incredibly well done though, and it’s filled with most of my favorite Sesame Street characters, with a handful of new cuddly villains like Macaroni the Merciless and his two henchmen, Zester and Shredder.

There are some sections that might be a little dark (as in literally) for preschoolers like when the space capsule blasts into outer space, but there are tons of little blue lights to light the way and it’s more like adventurous and super cool kind of dark instead of the scary kind of dark.

In fact, the kids loved it so much, we went on it 11 more times after the first ride.

    Apparently I was at RWS last Friday, but we were visiting the marine life park. I didn’t know there was such event. Otherwise, I would have suggest to go USS instead. Hehehe. I bet it’s much more fun for the boys than the fishes. :p

    Completely irrelevant, but… I love Kirsten. She makes my heart melt.

    Last week, end of March I went to RSW after your exciting review. My little one(2 years old) was refused entry for the ride, so my hubby told me. But I think I’m quite sweet looking and petite, while my hubby is on the tall side. In order not to disappoint my baby, as she seems pretty left out in all the other rides, I tried to bring her in with me. Apparently, the people there seemed OK with it and we had 2 rides!! Maybe being petite, the baby looks bigger??!! I was most excited when at the Sesame Street Show where the whole Sesame Street Gang came out to sing and dance. Brought a tear to my eye when we were touched my Cooking Monster. Apparently I’m still a kid at heart?!Starstrucked like meeting a movie star? I still remember how your baby looks like Ernie and it amused me very much to think about it!

      So cute!! Yeah the same thing happened to us at Legoland! Kirsten was short of 3cm for the 100cm rollercoaster rides and each time the husband tried to bring her in, he was stopped and she couldn’t go on. But when I went with her, they didn’t check and we rode it 4 times. They’re definitely more lenient with mommies, usually moms are the more careful and protective ones so maybe they think if the moms are ok they don’t need to check.
