    ORLANDO, Fla. - SeaWorld Orlando has announced that the new Sesame Street five acre themed land, that will be located on the south end of the park where Happy Harbor currently stands, will open in Spring 2019. 

    “We are excited to transport our guests into the colorful and creative world of Sesame Street through immersive theming, character interactions and interactive play,” said SeaWorld Orlando President Jim Dean.  “Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando is an amazing addition to our park, providing more unique and memorable experiences for the entire family.”

    Highlights of the new Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando land will include:

    • Guests will explore the iconic neighborhood as they walk through Abby Cadabby’s garden, visit Mr. Hooper’s store, stop by Big Bird’s nest, sit on the famous 123 stoop and meet their favorite friends from Sesame Street including Elmo, Cookie Monster and Big Bird.
    • Elmo and his furry friends, along with parade dancers will invite guests to join the party on Sesame Street daily during SeaWorld Orlando’s first-ever parade.
    • The immersive area will feature exciting rides, wet and dry play areas and interactive experiences designed to entertain the entire family.

    “In partnering with Sesame Workshop, we are creating a land for guests to make an authentic connection that can only be found in hugging a furry friend or reading a book with Big Bird,” shared Amanda Trauger, Experience Design Manager for SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. 

    Construction on Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando is currently underway, and icFlorida will be there along the way so make sure to follow @icFloridaEvents on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook!
