Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is the Singaporean Universal Studios theme park located within and maintained by Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island. It is the second Universal Studios theme park in Asia (Universal Studios Japan being the first) and the first in Southeast Asia. The park officially opened on May 28, 2011.
The New York section of the park houses several Sesame Street attractions, including live shows and an indoor dark ride, Spaghetti Space Chase. Walk-arounds of Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Ernie, Bert, Grover, Abby Cadabby, and Count von Count appear throughout the park for meet-and-greets.

Parades & seasonal events
Outside of live shows, the Sesame Street characters also appear in parades and special events at the park.
Sesame Street merchandise (both park-exclusive items and imports) is sold in gift shops around the park, including Big Bird's Emporium. There is also a Sesame Street School Bus retail cart outside Rockefeller Center (former location for The Yellow Cab Co. Taxi, which has since moved to Water Street, near KT Grill).
Sesame Street Character Breakfast Program
The breakfast buffet program, hosted by Loui's Pizza, is available on select dates. The breakfast program is not included in the day-pass to USS; guests will have to reserve their tickets online or purchase their tickets at the ticketing booth upon entering the park.
While the Sesame Street characters are represented by walk-arounds, the actual Muppets have visited the park on a few occasions.
