Amusement Parks

The kids will love the water rides like Sky Splash, a six story water adventure; Big Bird's Rambling River; Slimey's  Chutes, The Count's Splash Castle and more. 

If you prefer dry land then be sure to see the Sunny Day Carousel, the colorful carousel ride that is perfect for anyone; Vapor Trail  the park's roller coaster is will be enjoyed by older children; Nets 'n' Climbs which is a three story webbed world that challenges all who attempt to climb it; Big Bird's Court play area; Grover's World Twirl; Silly Sand Slide and more.

1-2-3 Smile with Me allows for photo opportunities with your child's favorite character.

The entire Sesame Place gang marches down Sesame Street twice a day in the "Rock around the Block" parade. This exciting parade features all of your favorite characters, large floats, dancers and lots of music. The best place to see the Parade is in the middle of the route between the Plaza & the Neighborhood Street – ”where the black meets the blue."  You can sign your child up to be in the Parade at Mr. Hooper's Emporium.

You can make reservations in advance and select from a range of dining with the Sesame Street characters. You can have breakfast with Elmo and breakfast with Cookie Monster.  Lunch and Dinner can be shared with Big Bird and Friends. Character dining does book up fast so it is recommended to make your reservations two weeks before your visit.

There is a picnic area just outside the park so if you pack a cooler with food and drinks you can leave the park for lunch.  Just be sure you get your hand stamped prior to leaving so that you will be re-admitted to the park.

If you have children in your house then you are well aware of the PBS children's series Sesame Street.  Sesame Place is based on the show and is a great park to take the family for a day full of fun Sesame Place is located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.  The park is 30 minutes from Center City, two hours from Baltimore, and 90 minutes from New York City. 

Sesame Place resides on 14 acres and is owned by the same company that brings you SeaWorld and  Busch Gardens theme parks.

This place is great for kids ages 1-10. Although it does have spinning  rides and roller coasters it is relatively small and low key.  Teenagers will not find the thrill seekers rides you will find in other parks.

Sesame Place has a variety of activities to pick from including approximately 13 water attractions, numerous rides, play areas, live shows, exciting parades as well as visits from your favorite characters like Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, and Elmo.

Plan your activities around show times so that you are sure to be able to see some of the terrific shows at Sesame Place.   Big Bird's Beach Party is a very popular show and it is performed in an indoor auditorium. This show gets very crowded so it is important to get there early if you want to get a good seat.
