The Sesame Place Park is a fourteen-acre theme park, located thirty minutes north of Philadelphia and ninety minutes south of Manhattan. The concept of the Sesame Place Park is to create the environment for both kids and parents to interact, explore and play in the Sesame Street, featuring around forty rides and interactive attractions, such as musical parades, live shows, exhilarating water rides, the breathtaking Vapor Trail roller coaster and wonderful Sesame Street Characters. Here are some of them, make friends.
Baby Bear appeared at the Sesame Place Park in 2005, and since that time he has been a Sesame Street resident artist. Baby Bear can be seen at the Sesame Place Park in the exciting "Rock Around the Block" parade. Bert and Ernie are always together. Bert is older and wiser; his hobbies are collecting bottle caps and paper clips, playing the tuba and he loves Bernice, his pet pigeon. Ernie is smart and keen at explaining things. Both are some of the most beloved Sesame Street's characters. Big Bird is a curious Sesame Street personage, always excited about discovery and persistent in finding solutions. His favorite treat is a birdseed milkshake. In addition, Big Bird is a superstar of the Sesame Place Park, as you can see him in numerous shows, such as "Oscar's Big Game Show", David Jack's "Gotta Dance" show, the Big Bird Theater Show and the "Rock Around the Block" parade. Cookie Monster at the Sesame Place Park likes cookies as always. He also likes singing about cookies or hanging out with his friends, while eating cookies. Elmo is a high-spirited, little and kind red monster, who likes everything and everyone around him. Since 2006, Elmo has his own home, Elmo's World, and his own show, "Elmo's World Live!"
Moreover, the Sesame Place Park provides the ultimate fun with its "dry and wet" rides and attractions. The Big Bird's Balloon Race takes you in one of eight balloon baskets for a forty-foot high balloon tower ride with an unforgettable panoramic view of the park. The "Monster Maze" challenges adults and kids to power through a forest of lightweight punching bags. The Bert & Ernie's Slip & Side has two intertwining body flumes that twist and turn their way, shooting the riders out into a splash pool grand finale. The Big Bird's Rambling River is a popular water adventure and fun, as riders float in an inner tube along a one thousand-foot waterway through the Sesame Island - past bubbling, swirling waters and spraying geysers under waterfalls and palm trees with water-filled tipping coconuts. The Ernie's Waterworks is one-of-the-kind water adventure, specially suited for kids of seven and younger. The kids like to crawl through a variety of water-spraying mazes and play around fountains.
In the Elmo's World children enjoy the most breathtaking rides with spinning and sliding, riding through the stars, bouncing up to the sky and back to the earth, and even swimming through an imaginary ocean on the fins of an Elmo fish.
