According to SeaWorld Orlando, the debut of this highly-anticipated, six-acre world class attraction is the largest Sesame Street land inside of any of the SeaWorld parks and an exciting part of Sesame Street’s year-long 50th anniversary celebration.

“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,” said Mark Pauls, President of SeaWorld Orlando. “This highly-anticipated, immersive new land is the largest Sesame Street land inside of any of our SeaWorld parks.

Education is the foundation of Sesame Street, and the new land at SeaWorld Orlando is no different.  The expansion includes many interactive learning elements, such as Elmo's Window where small visitors can play, sing and dance, and Cookie Monster's Foodie Truck Challenge, where kids can follow video instructions to create meals with Cookie Monster and Gonger.

The area also features six themed rides: Abby’s Flower Tower, Cookie Drop!, Slimey’s Slider,  Big Bird’s Twirl ‘n’ Whirl, Elmo’s Choo Choo Train and Super Grover’s Box Car Derby.  There are also both wet and dry playgrounds that kids are sure to love.

Using a new interactive device, called Elmo's Light-Up Bubble Want, kids can unlock interactive and secret hidden surprises that further bring Sesame Street to life.  The level of detail that SeaWorld Orlando has invested in the new area is impressive, and these interactive features make it even better!

Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando also includes a daily Sesame Street Party Parade, several food trucks with unique menu items, a large photo area for guests to meet their favorite characters, and Mr. Hooper's Store, a large shopping area.
