Sesame Place is the nation’s only theme park based entirely on the award-winning television show Sesame Street. Ideal for families with young children, it is the place where parents and children can share in the spirit of imagination and experience Sesame Street together through whirling rides, water slides, colorful shows and furry friends.
Located just 30 minutes north of Philadelphia and 90 minutes south of New York City, Sesame Place is the place for kids and the kid in all of us.
Sesame Place brings the Sesame Street television show and its values to life for children through play. What began as a three-acre theme park has now grown to be a 14-acre must-see destination for children across the country.
The place where families with young children can build memories to last a lifetime, Sesame Place provides an environment of exciting, enriching, experiences. Attractions range from thrill rides such as Blast Off in Elmo’s World, water rides like the surprise-packed adventures on Sky Splash in Twiddlebug Land, and active play areas like the challenging three-story high Nets-n-Climbs in Big Bird’s Court.
Throughout the season there are special events including The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular, A Very Furry Christmas, and a concert series featuring kid-favorite recording stars. And of course when they aren’t walking around greeting guests, Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, the Count, and the rest of the Sesame Street characters are the stars of musical shows throughout the park and the all-new Neighborhood Street Party
