Hailed as “the world’s first vertical theme park”, Liongate World opened in Hengqin, China in July 2019.  A four story, indoor theme park presents many challenges,  not least of which is keeping IP’s separated physically AND sonically.  Jon joined the Ears Up sound design team to integrate parkwide BGM for all areas including food and beverage and retail for Thinkwell Asia.  Additionally, Jon was tasked with mixing interactive attractions that were part of the park’s 25 overall rides and attractions.

PortAventura’s new area for 2019: “SésamoAventura” is a highly stylized land especially designed for children. The “Street Mission” dark ride is the first Sesame Street dark ride in Europe and it’s the flagship attraction in the new area. Sally Corporation called on Jon with his two decades of collaboration with Sesame Workshop to compose the synchronized score for this interactive 3D ride where the guests use their “clue collector” device to solve the mystery of the missing cookie.

SeaWorld, Orlando’s very own Sesame Street Land opened to critical praise in May of 2019.  This brand new area features rides, a water area and some of the most charming interactives designed by Beaudry Interactive.

But the centerpiece of the entire Sesame experience is the daily Sesame Street “Party Parade.”  Jon Baker Productions collaborated with Great Ideas Creative Group to create a parade experience where guests can get up close to the parade and leave singing the original theme song: “Meet Me on Sesame St.”
