Happy 30th Birthday, Sesame Place!
This past weekend I was lucky enough to go to Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pa with my family. It was opening weekend and they really knew how to celebrate. As soon as we arrived at Sesame Place we were greeted by a giant topiary birthday cake. It’s got us right into the mood of the celebration!
When we entered the park the kids wanted to head for the water rides. It was 90 degrees and everything was open. We went right to Sky Splash, a family water tube ride! What a way to start off the day. I think I know why they call it Sky Splash now! Soon after, Emily wanted to stroll along Sesame Street to see what characters were out. We found Bert and Ernie and they even took time out and played a game of hop-scotch with her!
Next, a nice relaxing trip tubing on Big Bird’s Rambling River was in order. Of course, that just gave the kids a chance to think of what “dry rides” they wanted to undertake! After toweling off we headed to Flyin’ Fish, Blast Off, and Vapor Trail. We could not pass up a chance to see the new show, ELMO ROCKS! Everyone enjoyed seeing all the Sesame characters rock out!
By then we were getting pretty hungry, so we decided to enjoy dinner at Elmo’s Eatery, and even had Elmo shaped pretzels!
Before we left, we got a nice balloon and watched the parade! It was great to see the new “birthday float” and the characters with their birthday hats on! What a way to celebrate!
If you have a chance to visit Sesame Place this summer, you will not be disappointed!
