SeaWorld Orlando Sesame Street Family Video Review
SeaWorld Orlando Sesame Street Family Video Review – In March 2019, we were invited to experience the all-new Sesame Street section of SeaWorld Orlando. Check out our Family Video Review!
With much anticipation, my Central Florida Family visited the all-new Sesame Street inside SeaWorld Orlando. If you’ve ever been to SeaWorld before, you’re familiar with the kids’ section of the park. There was the huge rope maze (where you could lose your kids for hours), a pirate ship with a splash pad and a few kiddo rides.
Well, everything has been re-imagined into a new world of Sesame Street. Here, you’ll find rides that mimic what was there before, but now, it’s all in Sesame Street style. A roller coaster, spinning saucers, a swaying ship that goes back and forth, a choo choo train and a drop ride are all some of the fun that kids can enjoy (none of them being too scary for the kids).
Beyond the rides, you’ll find a playground, a new and improved splash pad, character meet and greets, fun video interactive opportunities with the little monsters, food trucks, Mr. Hooper’s Store and more. You could easily spend several hours in the Sesame Street area alone!
Be sure to catch the parade that happens daily. Your kids can see (and maybe even dance with) their favorite characters!
My Central Florida Family truly enjoyed our time on this beloved street and yours can too. Entry is included with admission to SeaWorld. And, if you’re on a budget for tickets, check our page often and we’ll announce ticket savings when they happen!
Here are our Top 5 Suggestions for this experience:
- Check the times for the parade. It’s a must-see experience for Sesame Street fans.
- Check out Mr. Hopper’s Store. There are so many great Sesame Street items for sale.
- Don’t miss out on the character meet and greets. It’s not every day you can get up close to the Cookie Monster, Count, Oscar, Elmo and more!
- Find all the interactive areas. The kids will love them!
- Bring a bathing suit and towel on hot days. They kids will love the Splash Pad!
