SeaWorld Orlando has announced that a brand-new Sesame Street themed land will be opening Spring 2019.

Families will be able to walk down Sesame Street for the very first time as SeaWorld brings the world famous street to park guests, connecting them to all of the fun, laughter and learning of Sesame Street.

“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.”

Guests will be able to 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.

SeaWorld Orlando’s first-ever parade will feature Elmo and his friends, inviting guests to join the party on Sesame Street daily.

While specifics are minimal right now, 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 the new area is currently underway, replacing Shamu’s Happy Harbor.
