SeaWorld Orlando's new immersive Sesame Street land
will open this month, the company announced this morning.
"Sesame Street at SeaWorld" will officially debut March 27, and will feature all the landmarks of the popular children's television show including the 123 stoop, Hooper's Store and Big Bird's Nest. The area, which will be located in the former Shamu's Harbor, will also include daily parades, multiple meet-and-greets, a wet and dry play area, and six new rides.
While not a lot of details have been released on the rides, it is expected that many of them will be re-themed versions of existing rides already at the park. Regardless, the names of the new rides are Elmo’s Choo Choo Train, Cookie Drop, Abby’s Flower Tower, Super Grover’s Box Car Derby, Big Bird’s Twirl ’n’ Whirl, and Slimey’s Slider.
"We are thrilled to announce the opening date for this much anticipated attraction and we cannot wait to welcome guests to Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando on March 27. With over 30 new ways to play and an award-winning parade, this is an attraction that guests of all ages are going to love," said Mark Pauls, President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks, in a statement.
