Sesame Place Theme Park Joins SeaWorld for Expansion

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Sesame Place theme park outside of Philadelphia has long been a popular destination of the Northeast. Serving as the only theme park based entirely on Sesame Street program, it will soon welcome future locations with a new partnership with SeaWorld Entertainment.

Currently, SeaWorld Entertainment provides Sesame Street lands in its theme parks in San Diego and San Antonio, as well as the company’s Busch Gardens theme parks in Tampa, Florida, and Williamsburg, Virginia. SeaWorld Orlando will add a new Sesame Street land by fall of 2022. However, now the entertainment company will scout for a new location for a second Sesame Place stand-alone theme park, with plans to open by mid-2021.

The current and new Sesame Place theme parks will continue to feature family rides, water slides, live character shows, daily parades, and seasonal events that help bring the educational world of Sesame Street to life. “Expanding our Sesame Place theme park footprint will both deepen our relationship with longstanding fans and help us to connect with new families,” said Steve Youngwood, Chief Operating Officer of Sesame Workshop. “This partnership will also enable the Workshop to continue producing high-quality educational programming for the next generation.”
