A summer of brand new fun is on its way to Sesame Place Philadelphia in 2023 with the addition of a new water play area and a brand new themed section.  As if that wasn't enough, the park is also adding a new live show featuring the Sesame Street characters plus an enhanced meet and greet with everyone's favorite - Big Bird.

The new water play area is named Bert & Ernie's Splashy Shores, a fun area where kids can splash and play the day away.  There will be "tipping water buckets, spraying jets, a water curtain, a water bobble and a spraying water tower" among other fun activities.  The area will come with shaded seating as well, so the whole family can hang out during the day.

Also new is Big Bird's Beach, a new "tropical-themed land" dedicated to "splashy water fun."  The area was previously known as Twiddlebug Land and has now been "colorfully transformed and creatively updated."  Big Bird's Beach includes water slides, a family-sized wave pool, a spray and play area and plenty of shaded seating.  The land will feature favorite existing attractions such as Elmo's Surf 'n' Slide (family raft ride), Abby's Splash & Spray Garden, Rosita's Seaside Slides (family water slides) and Little Bird's Bay (family wave pool.)


Sesame Place Philadelphia will also feature new and updated live entertaiment this season.  A new show, Welcome To The Party!, will open, featuring Elmo, Abby, Grover, Rosita and Cookie Monster as they put on a show to welcome their new friends to Sesame Street.  The show will be featured in Abby's Paradise Theater.  There will also be an enhanced meet and greet with Small Talk with Big Bird, where guests can interact and chit-chat with Big Bird before getting their photo taken with him.


Sesame Place Philadelphia plans to have all the new and modified attractions ready for guests by Summer 2023.
