15 Feb - 2022

The West Coast’s first Sesame Place Theme Park offers exclusive pre-openinig season pass pricing and an exclusive invite to pass holders for grand opening events

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) and Sesame Workshop announced that Sesame Street’s favorite furry friends are getting ready to welcome guests from all over the world to the ALL-NEW Sesame Place San Diego theme park starting Saturday, March 26. The first to celebrate the park opening will be Season Pass holders who will be invited to exclusive grand opening events filled with character meet-and-greets, photo opportunities, collector items and more. Special pre-opening Season Pass pricing is available now for a limited time. Season Pass holders get the best value and will enjoy a full year of fun with unlimited visits and unbeatable benefits.

The new 17-acre park will be the only Sesame Place location on the West Coast and the second location in the country. Perfect for families with kids of all ages, the park will be open year-round with Sesame Street-themed rides and attractions that whirl, twirl, soar, and spin. Guests will enjoy 18 Sesame Street-themed rides, and fun exciting water attractions, including a kid-friendly rollercoaster and a 500,000-gallon wave pool – one of the largest in Southern California. The park will also feature a musical play area, an interactive Sesame Street Neighborhood complete with the iconic 123 Stoop, daily live character shows, award-winning parades, one-of-a-kind photo opportunities and of course, everyone’s favorite furry friends.

“This is an exciting milestone for our company, as this is the second Sesame Place in the United States and the first new theme park we’ve opened since 2013. We are thrilled to debut this new park and add a premiere tourist destination to California that is so appealing to families,” said Marc Swanson, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment CEO. “Having spent part of my career with this company at the original Sesame Place in Pennsylvania and being part of its success, I’m looking forward to continuing the legacy on the West Coast and providing a fun place to visit where life-long memories are created as fans experience what they love about the iconic show in a new way.”

“Since 1980, Sesame Place has been a key part of the Sesame Workshop extended family and mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder,” said Steve Youngwood, Sesame Workshop CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment to introduce the West Coast’s only standalone theme park based entirely on the award-winning educational program, Sesame Street. Sesame Place San Diego will offer kids and families an immersive opportunity to play and learn with their favorite furry friends, and continue enriching their experiences with Sesame Street.”
