An interactive “Sesame Street” neighborhood is now open at SeaWorld Orlando, and it’s full of recognizable characters and scenes from the long-running children’s show.
Visitors to the six-acre park may spot “Sesame Street” friends, like Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Bert and Ernie and Oscar the Grouch while walking through the attraction. It includes stops like the iconic 123 Stoop, Big Bird’s Nest and Mr. Hooper’s Store.
The debut of the six-acre attraction inside SeaWorld Orlando is part of the year-long 50th anniversary celebration for the show. “Sesame Street” made its television debut in November 1969, and now, the educational television program reaches kids in 150 countries and 70 languages.
SeaWorld has been Sesame Workshop’s official partner for four decades. And its newly opened “Sesame Street” experience offers 30 different ways for people of all ages to play.
“We are thrilled to officially welcome guests to walk down Sesame Street for the very first time in the theme park capital of the world,” Mark Pauls, president of SeaWorld Orlando, said in a press release. “This highly-anticipated, immersive new land is the largest ‘Sesame Street’ land inside any of our SeaWorld parks.”
Inside the new Sesame Street attraction, kids can play, dance and sing at Elmo’s Window. Or, they can make meals alongside Cookie Monster and Gonger at Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck Challenge. Kids can also encounter their favorite “Sesame Street” characters during meet-and-greet opportunities.
Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando also boasts a half-dozen themed rides. Among them: Elmo’s Choo Choo Train, Big Bird’s Twirl ‘n’ Whirl, Super Grover’s Box Car Derby and Abby’s Flower Tower. Plus, there are plenty of daily activities, such as Storytime with Big Bird.
Visitors can also watch the daily Sesame Street Party Parade that features colorful floats and favorite characters. You can reserve a viewing spot for the Sesame Street Parade online to ensure you have a front seat to all the fun.
