Overview

Implemented on a Segway platform, the Muppet Mobile Lab is a two-wheeled science-lab vehicle that resembles a small rocket ship. Two Muppets, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant, Beaker, pilot the vehicle throughout the park, interacting with guests and deploying special effects such as foggers, flashing lights, moving signs, confetti canons and spray jets.

On-board cameras, microphones and speakers allow the puppeteers to see and hear guests and interact with them. Muppeteer Dave Goelz assisted in the development of the project.
