We really looked forward to spending the day here with our almost 4 and 2.5 year old, and were gravely disappointed. Unless it is a nice day that is conducive to all the water rides, there is almost nothing to do. We went on one airplane ride, one ride that would have worked was broken, and there would have been one other spinning tea cup ride. Oh, and the slides, the most absurd attraction ever. You get up there with your kids, expecting to go down with them, and instead you have to send them down by themselves and hope that they are still there by the time you make it back down the stairs and around the corner through the mass of 200+ people. Really weird.

Aside from that, it is horribly overpriced.
Parking: $25
Admission: $63 a person!
Face painting: $8 - $11
Lunch: $20+ a person (so bring it yourself!)
Try to buy a toy: At least $8, $12 for a mug, and $25+ for any decent Sesame Street character
Stroller: $20 (of course, also just bring it yourself)
Locker: $15 (no need if you have a stroller)

For much less money, go to one of these places instead:
Philadelphia Zoo
Storybook land
Dorney Park
Hershey Park
Knoebles
Adventure Aquarium
Camping at the shore for almost an entire week

I've only been to Sesame Place for a day trip, seemed to be enough. Just like any other amusement park, it's packed and you wait in line. BUT uneducated, rude, moral-less people, who happen to also be parents, are EVERYWHERE!

WOW, I??m really surprised on the negativity on here for a kids place. We just bought our season pass to sesame??s place because my 4year old loves it here. Yes, some people can be rude but there is nothing the employees or other guests can do about that. There are rude people everywhere, including Disney World. There is nothing people can do about how other people dress either. This place does have water rides therefore I can??t understand people complaining about how other people dress. Also, yes it??s a place for kids but so is lot of other parks and they make adults pay too. If a child is missing, it??s the parents fault not the park. I make sure that either I or my husband watches our son. I would like to know where some of these reviews take their children because obviously they take them to a utopia place where everything is perfect with no yelling, cheap and no lines. Come on, be realistic. Unless you buy the e-pass for the rides, there are lines in every park. Thirty minutes is nothing if you are at six-flags or even Disney world. Parents have to remember that this is a kids place and as long as my child is having fun, can??t seem to understand all the fuss. It??s not a huge park nor does it have lot of rides, but one of the best features is the water ride they have in the middle of the park which you child can play all day. It is expensive but if you get the season pass, it pays for itself in two day visit. I guess it doesn??t hurt that we live close by. The food wasn??t that great I have to say. The worst chicken wrap I ever had but their funnel cake is really good. Yes their parade is repetitive but like I said, it??s for kids.

I took my 2 year old daughter to sesame place the saturday before labor day and i was very hesitant because of all the bad reviews. I went with my mother,daughter and nephiew who is also 2. I bought all of our tickets online, also dinner with the characters, i rented a stroller and got all of us an abby unlimited wrist band so we do not have to wait in line. oh yeah it was all alot of money but it definetley was worth it and the enjoyment in my daughters face was priceless!!!! you definetley do not want to wait in line with a 2yr old so the wristbands at $30 each were worth it!!!! now of course there are many ignorant parents who have no consdieration for others and think the world revolves around them like the comment about why do adults have to pay at a kids park? and if they were at a zoo? come on be seriouse and get over yourself! the employees were very nice and cordial to us! the dinner with big bird was amazing all of the characters came out and sang and sat with the kids which was good because we were not chasing down the characters through out the park because we knew we would have our chance for pictures! the rides are like any other amusement park but because your kids favorite characters are on them the kids get really excited! i have a season pass for six flags and my daughter is barely allowed on most rides period even with an adult! so the fact that my daughter and i can get on every ride was great! of course it is pricey but what park isn't? i went back for the halloween spucktacular that was also a blast we went on the hayride, trick-or-treating, the corn maze and pumpkin patch and had lunch with elmo! oh and the shows and parade are also great i have now bought season passes for 2011!

I also work at the park, and i have to agree and disagree with many of the reviews here. First of all, if you dont like lines and crowds, dont come to an amusement park! The park is going to be crowded in August and there's nothing the employees or management can do about that. Also, there are in fact A LOT of angry, rude people. But the fact is there is nothing the park can do about them either, and the employees dislike them as much as any customer does. Also, don't bother asking to "see the manager of the park immediately". Its not going to happen, the most you are going to get or even need to see is a supervisor or maybe even a department manager. Now, as for the people who say the park is dirty, I can only say for a park with such enormous crowds, it is extraordinarily clean. There are always people with brooms roving the park and cleaning up trash. Overall, if you can handle the prices and have a bit of patience and good humor, it is more than possible to enjoy the park, and the majority of children i see definitely do.

My husband, my son and I went there on a Saturday afternoon. When we got there I asked my husband ??Are you sure we did not come to a zoo by mistake?? First of all why do adults have to pay if it??s a kid??s park. It was crowed. It is too small to hold the many people. We waited in line for more then 30 min for every ride. There the parents let their children do anything they want the works do not care. It was a HORRIBLE. I will never go there again even though I live 20 min from it. The only thing I enjoyed was the parade.

HUGE dissapointment!!! I have never written a negative review before, but felt obliged to do so. Very expensive, poorly run establishment. Would NEVER return, nor would I EVER recommend visiting. Save your money and go to Disney. You'll have a MUCH more pleasant experience!!

This place is absolutely HORRIBLE. The people who leave four star reviews either work there or are people who go there and have no idea that they are the very cause of this decaying theme and water park. Let's start with the people. This place is filled with ghetto trash. That being said , upon entering this establishment I saw two adult women scantily dressed in nothing more than two piece bikinis and cut off shorts with the extra body fat that was not to be flaunted. They were posing for a picture. Eager to see who was taking the picture, I noticed that it was one of their daughters , about 4 years old , taking the picture. They posed like cheap beer models or wannabe video vixens. They even gave direction on how they wanted the picture taken . I guess my point is that this is what you find here- it's definitely not about the kids but for their mindless parents that obviously have no self respect or dignity.
The bathrooms were repulsive. Every 3 minutes their was a public service announcement : " if your child is missing..." as if the park knows who their clientele is and has to remind parents to keep tabs on their kids.
The parents yelling at their kids " get your a$$ over here", " you can tell me what to do when you know your social security number", I mean this is stuff I can't make up. I was FLOORED. My husband and son were waiting in line for over 30 minutes for a ride that lasted a minute ; watching Elmo live was like a stampede race to enter the theatre. The water rides were not well maintained- floating plastic bags , floating food, etc.
The food is not only unhealthy, fried , and disgusting, it's also very expensive . We left Sesame Place and ate elsewhere.
To top it off, I went to the gift store"finders keepers" and while I was on line these two women ( barbarians) got into a fight in front of all the children in the store including their own. Security never showed up and they were extremely loud with their verbal punches and screams. I prayed to make it out of the store unscathed by these two women.
And yes, Happy birthday , sesame place. Thank you for advertising your " fireworks" for a measely 9 minute show .
Getting out of the parking lot that holds thousands of cars with only ONE exit was the real spectacle ! Don't make eye contact or try to cut anyone off- you may get shot. All in all after waiting 45 minutes to just get out of the parking lot I only had one thought-I will never ever take my child there again. He barely got to do anything;the parents and uncontrollable children did by means of threat and cutting .

Avoid avoid avoid at all costs. You'll end up spending over 130 just to get in and realize much sooner than later that you've been ripped off.

Well..first of. I have to say you people do not know how to do Sesame Place. I work there in merchandise. And frankly, it can be fun if you know how to do it. First, bring your own stroller. Way to explensive to rent one. And when you bring ur stroller put ur stuff the back (etc. towels) the only thing you need to buy there is the little case (found in gift shops) that are waterproof and you can put ur phone and money in there. and truthfully...there are a lot of rude ppl. i agree. and its the parents for the most part. i suggest leaving the park for lunch. we live in an area that is so populated with chain restaurants. its so expensive to eat there. and only get your kids something small in gift shops. if u look hard there are cheap stuff. instead of buying your child a 26 dollar abby caddaby doll. and also think...when you complain to someone you can see (like some1 in a yellow or red shirt) we are the lower mans of the park. the bathrooms r clean. or they try to be. my friend works as a hostess for it and thats all she does is restock toliet paper. most of the staff is kids (teenagers in high school and college) we all live in the area. and bring watershoes with you. and wat do u expect? ur gonna wait in line the park is like 14 acres. and i hope it doesn't get bigger becuz if it takes over the mall i think that would limit what the kids working to get money to spend at the mall. i mean we try so hard. and btw, never never go on a special day. the days ppl have the most fun are in JUNE on weekdays come july and sugust it can be packed on a monday. and I HIGHLY suggest going in JUne. U can get in line right away and its hot enough to swim.

I have just returned from a trip to Sesame Place. I am going to rate it as honest as possible. I went on one of the hottest an most crowded days of the summer with my 3 yr old daughter and my family. The park itself was pretty fun and interactive, lots of rides mostly water rides I would say. It's very fun for kids of all ages. It was very crowded there was a line for every single thing..I waited almost an hour to get a plate of fries and nuggets and 1 soda witch cost me $12.52. Parents with no patience do not go here, the bathrooms were not 100% but there was people working to keep them clean...was just too crowded. It seems the park is too small too hold so many amounts of people. However my daughter and my whole family had a great time including myself. I would try and go on a weekday next time too avoid big crowds.Recommend getting the VIP parking, it's right next to the entrance so you can leave stuff in the car and just come back for them. If you plan on getting a locker reserve one on their website the day before because they sell out fast. We got the 2 day pass for around $53 and although we did not plan on it ended up going the day after also. BIG TIP- Reserve one of the breakfasts with the characters on there website ahead of time(we did Cookie Monster Abby Cadabby). It was great for the kids around 6 charcters walking around greeting the kids, no crowds and lines, breakfast not too bad. The breakfast is also held before the park opens so they let you in ahead of people waiting to get in. After breakfast you are already in the park so you get ahead start on all the rides before people start making lines. It's not Disney but the Park does what it supposed to do...Show your kids a great time, most of the staff was nice, will probably go again. Hope they expand the park in the future.

My family and our friends decided to spend labor day weekend in Sesame Place. We decided to spend 2 days in the park since we had a 3 year-old, 1 year-old and 8 month old. All of the adults were just as excited as the kids to go since neither my husband or I had ever been, and we're both kids ourselves. Boy were we disappointed with the experience. I have never been to a place where people were so beligerant and acted like animals in my life. Parents here apparently have not taught their kids rules, how to take turns, be polite, respectful. Definitely gave me a vivid picture of the phrase "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." It was a nightmare. The fact that my 3 year-old felt she could not have fun, "These kids don't take turns Mommy" is horrible. Kids pushed and shoved, parents totally did not supervise, it was simply a free for all. The bathrooms were abominable. The fact that pull-ups and diapers were stacked on the sanitary napkin cans is simply repulsive. I refused to change my baby in there, we just used our stroller. Simply disgusting and rude people taking advantage of a family place for fun and turned it into a travesty. Fortunately we were in good company with our friends and we made the best of it. I will NEVER go to sesame place again and will be sure to steer others from going as well.

My family and I visited Sesame Place for the second time this past July 4th weekend. We stayed in the park all day on the 4th and the day was pretty good until right after the mediocre fireworks show. They shut off all the lights, then forced people to leave the park in complete darkness. Over 8,000 people were shoving their way to out to the parking lots. No security around to be seen as my family gets trampled by another family (who did not have children). They became so upset that we could not continue to move forwards because there were so many people around us and they had pushed us so hard that all of our things fell out of our carriage and onto the ground that the woman assaulted me. She punched me in the face, almost knocked my 3 year old out of his carriage, and she pushed over my 8 year old son. Sesame's response to this horrific event was point blank - "oh well, there is nothing we can do". We demanded to talk to the manager of the park that night and were told "he was too busy for us". We called him the following week after we returned home only to find out that he refused to refund our SESASON PASSES. The best he claimed he could do was offer us awas discounted meal with the characters. Now, I don't know about you but I find that absolutely repugnant. I will never go back to that park and I plan to write as many negative reviews as I can. Amahueser-Bush has had no response either. THEY SUCK!!! If you care about your children and their well-being - go to Disney instead!

My family and I visited Sesame Place for the second time this past July 4th weekend. We stayed in the park all day on the 4th and the day was pretty good until right after the mediocre fireworks show. They shut off all the lights, then forced people to leave the park in complete darkness. Over 8,000 people were shoving their way to out to the parking lots. No security around to be seen as my family gets trampled by another family (who did not have children). They became so upset that we could not continue to move forwards because there were so many people around us and they had pushed us so hard that all of our things fell out of our carriage and onto the ground that the woman assaulted me. She punched me in the face, almost knocked my 3 year old out of his carriage, and she pushed over my 8 year old son. Sesame's response to this horrific event was point blank - "oh well, there is nothing we can do". We demanded to talk to the manager of the park that night and were told "he was too busy for us".

One of the worst theme park i ever visited. For the price of $50 + $15 (Parking) the park is not big enough to accomodate large crowd. For each and every ride, we have stand for more than 20 to 30 minutes in the soaring Sun. Moreover all the staff are untrained young guys and girls who doesn't know how to behave to a customer. Sesame street is allowing a 3 year old boy to ride in a closed tube slide and he is not allowed to ride the same with his dad. this is horrible. Staff who work there themself dont where the firework will be displayed??? THE RESTROOMS are very poorly maintained. Last holiday I visited Busch Gardens & Water Country USA in Virginia..that is a very good park with great facilities. So people dont waste your money and time in Sesame Place in PA

Overrated. For the price of admission $50 + $15 to park (even for a 2 year old), you can find many more interesting things to do. The Philadelphia zoo for example. Don't waste your time or money. It's basically a water park with a couple rides.

We took you two children to Sesame Place last year and we are going back this weekend. The Parade was fun, but crowded as expected. Most of the rides were large enough to accommodate me, I am 6'3'' and 240. My children loved it. My wife and I were a bit nervous about the lines. We have a special needs child, and she does not understand waiting, so this was a draw back.. But we as parents made (fought) her to wait her turn. We did wait in excess of two hours on at least two rides. Then others we zipped right through. Restrooms were clean, but also crowed, as people were changning into swimsuits. Food is very expensive. The eating areas were messy. The grounds are beautifully maintained and clean. The over all size of the park is small, but it is geared toward smaller children, so alot of walking can be too much for little ones. We were able to safely leave our stroller at the ride entrances, and no one bothered our property. The fun thing that we found interesting is that the characters, are always walking somewhere or posing for pictures. When we were in Disney, we had to schedule those photo opps. It is what you make it. Have Fun..

I have had season passes to Sesame Place for the past few years now. So, I feel I can give everyone some tips! You should wear your bathing suit in the summer as more than half the rides are water-rides/pools. You can leave your stroller outside the rides and no one will touch it. You can bring a picnic lunch in and not have to pay the outrageous food prices (season pass holders get 10% off food). The parade is a must-see. Make sure you get in line early for the shows so they aren't full. I recommend the two-day Elmo pass for people visiting out of town. One day for the water rides/pools and one day for the dry rides/shows/parade. There can be long lines. Here is an insider tip. There are two entrances to the lazy river. To get to the shorter line, cross the bridge over by the Abby Cadabby theater. They recently started having fireworks a few nights a year and the ones we saw were pretty good!

I have been to Sesame many times over the past 3 years. Yes, on a really HOT nice day, it will be extra crowded. What water park wouldn't? Extra crowded will make longer lines obviously. Plan accordingly like you would anywhere else and it is a GREAT place to bring your child. Especially 3-6 yr olds. I have seen line cutting by kids... but they are kids... Hopefully all parents will keep their kids in line, but again, you can't always get that with every family. Just because 1 or 2 people may have not been well mannered, does not make the place bad. Stop nit picking. Anyhow, an honest opinion of the place from someone who's been there more then just 1 time... The place is great. Get the Elmo 2 day pass, or if you live close by, get the season pass, they are VERY inexpensive for a season pass to anywhere. It's good to spend 1 day (especially the first time) meeting all the characters. Bring a good digital camera. You will get some priceless pictures when your kid meets their favorite character. You get to stand on line and get your picture taken with each character. They scatter the characters around the park so some you'll have to look around for. They will take your picture and let you buy then, BUT, they will also let you take your own picture with your own camera... why buy them if you can take your own... pretty cool that they do that. They you may also want to see all the shows... this way you'll get them done, You can say you saw them and see that the best part of the park is the fun stuff... Someone said earlier to do the dry rides in the morning... good idea... start your day slow because it will be full... If you want to have the full experience and make your kids very happy... you'll cover just about the entire park. There is so much to do and EVERYTHING you can do WITH your kids. Very good parent/child interaction. Although they are rides for kids, they did not forget about the parents. The rides are all fun. The food is C, C+ at best. It is expensive, the lines are long, and not that great of quality. Either pack a lunch and leave it in coolers in your car.(you're allowed to leave, get your hand stamped and come back into the park). I have found getting stamped, and going up the street about 300yards to the mall... The foodcourt has plenty of choices and the bathrooms in that mall for after you eat.... The bathroom had a TV in it. It was called a "family" bathroom. Never seen that before. lol. Then go back to the park... should only take 1 hour for that adventure. They even let you drive out of the lot and come back without having to pay again. I would suggest catching the parade at least once. Yeah it's a little lame, but your kid will love it. The lines are also a lot smaller when the parade is going on. When the park closes, be prepared to spend some cash in the gift shop. They have some cute stuff, a little pricey, but what gift shop isn't. I strongly suggest snow globes. Each time we go we get a different one. Water shoes are also a must for the adults and the kids. Rent the lockers as soon as you walk into the park because I'll be renting the ones in the back with the short lines...lol.. The cargo nets are fun. Dads, step up and take your little ones through the cargo nets. My final comment would be to anyone thinking of going.... Go, you will have fun.

I guess everyone ignored the line cutting, foul language, parents smoking etc......

Question, I noticed there were more tattoo'd moms than none, is there some sort of club?

After driving 3 1/2 hours to get to Sesame Place, I have to admit we were pretty disappointed. We went at the end of the season and it wasn't even a really hot day, and the place was packed. Although many of the attractions don't have lines, they were pretty crowded. Anything that had a line was a long, long, wait -- including food! Food was expensive, admission was expensive. However, the kids (3, 4, & 6) had a great time when they weren't standing in line. I would suggest wearing your bathing suit into the park. I found the changing areas very dirty and trying to negotiate the crowded locker room area with a stroller and little kids difficult.

PROS: great for Sesame fans
CONS: expensive, long waits for some attractions, dirty, crowded

We took our kids to Sesame Place last year and they had a ball! I will say that the park could be a parent's worst nightmare. It's loud, hot and crowded. However, it's totally worth it for all of the fun your kids will have.

It's primarily a water park, so come prepared. Most people walk around in some form of swimwear. There are rides and lots of shows.

I wish we would have seen more shows, cause my 3 year old loved them!

The two-day pass is a great deal, so check into that. Think about taking your own food (they allow it) cause the food isn't that great and the lines are sooooo long!

You'll find the characters throughout the park, but there's also a special photo area near Grover's teacup ride. They allow you to take pictures of your kids there free, you don't have to buy their pics or anything.

Overall, it's an exhausting, expensive day but it's also a lot of fun!

This is a great park to bring children of all ages. My sons had the most enjoyment out of it when they were between the ages of 3-10. After that, they tolerated it and didn't complain, as the park has rides for the older kids. Their favorite attraction was an inner tube water ride, and yes, you will get wet. They also enjoyed the lazy river, and the various audience productions. There were a few Sesame Street characters walking around, but not a lot. I think we saw Cookie Monster. Food is expensive, and parking isn't simple, but overall I highly recommend this park.

Other than the lines and the high price of food which is typical of most amusement parks, I have nothing bad to say about Sesame Place. When our youngest was 3, we lost him in the park. Obviously, we were petrified. The staff was tremendous. They immediately put out an announcement to their entire staff to be on the lookout for a lost child. We found him ourselves within a few minutes but that's not because staff wasn't trying.

PROS: coupons for admission, cheaper twilight admission
CONS: high food prices, long lines

Its name is automatically equated with *fun* for toddlers, children and even nostalgic adults alike! Though it can be a pricey day out (+$40.00 for a day's pass--although it can be transferred to a 2 day Elmo passport at no additional expense), it is a magical place to visit! Younger guests will love walking down Sesame Street in the neighborhood, seeing Mr. Hooper's store and Oscar's trashcan (and a giant rubber ducky!), riding Big Bird's Rambling River and splashing in Ernie's Waterworks. Older children will be equally as amused on bigger water slides (Big Slipper or Sesame Streak) or the Fisher Price built roller coaster, Vapor Trail. Whole families will dance along with the Rock Around the Clock Parade! Parking is $10.00 (but plentiful) and staffers seem to be perpetually happy--a great time!!

My whole family loves this place. The admission is a bit higher than it should be but if you only go once a year, it is worth it. There are always coupons in the paper and other places as well. The younger kids will love it since it is made to look a bit like Sesame Street. The characters are always around and accessible for pictures. The park is kept clean and is a very child friendly place. The employees are all very friendly and happy. The gift shops have lots of great stuff you may not otherwise find in a store. The food places are yummy!!! The whole family will enjoy a day at Sesame Place. Dont miss the wonderful parade!!!

This is the only amusement park of it's kind. Since most children love Elmo and the rest of the Sesame Street gang, this is the only place to find your favorite characters. Most of the amusements are water themed, but there are also some smaller rides like tea cups, a balloon ride and a roller coaster. The park is very crowed in the summer time and stays open through the fall. The park takes on a Halloween theme in the month of October. The price to get in the park is on the high side, around $42, but be sure to ask for the Elmo's passport for a second day's admission free. They won't give it to you if don't ask for it. The park is clean for the most park, and most of the employees are teenagers. There are plenty of food courts, prices range from $6 to $8 not including drinks. It's defintely worth checking out, but try not to go in the height of the peak season, or the crowds may turn you off.

Older, "mature" kids may not care for this amusement park, but believe me: everyone else will!!! This is an excellent place to bring your entire family; it is very well-maintained and clean and it's THE place around here for good clean family fun. My friend has a season pass and her kids ages 14 and 9 still love it here! Really, you can spend a whole day here and time will go by very quickly.
I loved the Lazy River. That was the epitome of summer fun, just lying on a tube and having not a care in the world. My kids loved it too, so much that now they're begging me to take them back! The kids also got a real kick out of being greeted by Sesame Street characters. However, the admission fee is a bit steep, and I spent like $200 for my entire family of four. The lunch was expensive, and so was the popcorn I bought. But it was nicer than a lot of park food.
Also, this place is a bit far if you're coming from South Jersey. Make sure to leave a little early so you can beat the crowd and get there right around opening.

I took the kids to Sesame for the day and we had a blast. Most of sesame is water rides so bring your suits. They also have a parade that rolls down main street twice a day. They have tons of shows and attractions. the also have the characters walking aorund the park so you are able to take a picture with your kids. Be forewarned, Sesame gets extremely busy, especially on the weekends. The price of the park food is very expensive and the lines are long. The admission to the park is also expensive, if you live nearby buy the pass.

This place is such a cute place. It is suppose to be all about sesame street and the characters walk around the park. They have interactive games and rides, as well as rides including water rides. They are a bit pricey for admission, but your family is sure to have a blast while there.

We took our 4 year old to Sesame Place for the first time this past summer. He had a great time!! We even upgraded our passes to season passes for next year.

The park was a lot of fun, great rides!!

We went on a day when Maria from Sesame Street was there. The park sold out of her books before we got there. They were nice enough to print pictures for autographs and took a sign up sheet for books.
I thought it was really nice of them to be willing to send out books so that we didnt miss out!

Thank you Sesame Place!! We can't wait to return next year!

We took our 2 1/2 year old daughter this summer and she had such a great time. The only down side is the price of admission but it is so worth it when you see how much fun your child has. It is mainly a water park so make sure to bring swimwear etc... It was very clean and everyone was friendly. It is very family oriented - they even have a special nursing room for nursing moms. There is a lot to keep you busy for more than 1 day but yet it is small enough that you don't get lost. Make sure you get a good seat for the parade (2X daily) and try to see most of the shows.

What do you do with a 4 year old in the summer when his older sisters - and playmates - have gone away to summer camp for two weeks? For us, the solution was special time with just Mom and Dad at a theme park designed just for his age group: Sesame Place.

Sesame Place is located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania about 90 miles south of New York City and a half hour north of Philadelphia. It is located off of exit 351 from the Pennsylvania Turnpike near the Oxford Valley Mall. Regular Parking is across the street from Sesame Place. Premium Parking is located on the same side of the road as Sesame Place and costs more

Admission prices are the same for age two on up to Seniors since so much of the park is devoted to the younger set.

I think this park is great for the smaller set. I saw many day camps there with older kids - some pre-teen - while we were there and I just cant imagine them getting much out of the day. My son loved meeting his hero - Grover - and wasnt the least bit intimidated by him being larger than life. Although not terribly entertaining for his parents, we did enjoy watching him experience the park and participate in all of the active play.

As far as the crowds, park workers told us mid-week is best. I attributed the low crowds on Thursday to it being cloudy and cool, and the larger crowds on Friday to the nicer weather, but I would definitely make at least one day either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday if we go there again. The pools all seemed very clean - the water wasn't cloudy and I saw staff out testing on a regular basis.

Vacation packages are available with local hotels. When I priced them out, I found that doing it a la carte was cheaper than the package. Really the park has enough that you can "see" everything in one day, but we made sure to take one day and just relax and let my son run around his favorite play-areas.

PROS: interactive fun, familiar characters for young children, good food
CONS: not much for those over 10, packages overpriced

Depending on when you go there it could be a great place or a horrible experience. If you enjoy standing in line for hours to get over priced food then here you go. Go right before schools end in the middle of June and there are hardly any employees. Hardly any rides are open, only one place to eat is open, overall terror. Go in the middle of summer and everything is open but there are usually alot of people. I say go in the middle of June, pack a lunch and dont expect to get alot of rides in.

I went here with my family before and it is a very nice theme park for the younger age groups (maybe 3-8). There isnt much here for older kids except big water slides, which are still fun. Everything here is also pretty pricey. Wait times are O.K. My personal favorite was the ducky ride - I forget its name off hand - but a giant water slide for the whole family to ride in one of those giant inner tubes. We rode that over and over again! Food and souvenirs are badly overpriced, and you arent allowed to bring much into the park. Some of the toys sell at nearby toy stores for much, much less

I took my 4 and 2 year old daughters to Sesame Place a few weeks ago. They had such a great time. I thought the rides were great. The line was a little longer than I expected for the Ball Pit. The food prices were very good. The admission price was pretty good too considering you pay $39.99 per person, but you get to come back a second day for free.

I was hesitant about taking my 2 yo to Seseme Place. I was no sure if there was enough to do. We got there when it opened. We had breakfast with the characters which is great if your kids are not scared. Even so it was a great way to start the day. We started on the dry rides and saw a show, then went to the water attractions. The only complaint was the line for food. We waited in line for luch for 45 minutes. It was all assembly line food. They need more stands or a better system. The kids stayed up and pleasant all day. We stayed for the 6:30 parade. the kids sat on their towels 40 minutes before (yes people wait that long) and ate dinner. What a great day. We upgraded for season passes and can't wait for next year.

PROS: Kid friendly for years 2 and up
CONS: food stands

Sesame Place Season Passes are so worth the money! MY kids love the shows, water area, and amusements. Food is a bit pricy but they allow you to bring in picnics as long as they are not in hard coolers. Usually very clean even on a crowded day and I feel my children are in a safe environment for preschoolers.

Take the kids and splash in the wading pools, float on the lazy river ride the giant rubber ducky slide and climb the nets. The kids will enjoy the character parade and the confetti in the end. It is a little pricey so I recommend that you get the 2 day elmo passport or the season pass if you are going to go often. The employees are ffiendly and courteous.

if you go early to sesame place then you can enjoy your time there. after 11 am, the buses pull in and loads of people file out. making the lines LONG and it can end up being a very long day. a lot of the people that go there are rude, so be careful.

This is a really nice place for the 10 and under set. Older kids may get bored quickly. This is a water park more than anything else, so if you're travelling a long way to spend your vacation here, I'd suggest finding other things in the area you may want to do also. You can spend a day here easily, but it will not take more than a couple of days to have your fill of the park. There are Sesame Street characters and a few other things to do, but on the whole, this IS a water park with fountains, wading pools and water rides.

This is a great place to bring the kids. Admittance is expensive but so are all the other parks. The characters are great and I would make sure I hung around for the parade. They put on a really good show. They also have shopping areas to pick up your favorite t-shirts or novelties. You have to pay seperate for parking. I'd go early because the park gets very crowded especially in the summertime when the kids are off from school.

We took our 2 year old here many times last summer, he had so much fun! The admission is a bit steep at $40 but there are always tons of coupons out there, and we wound up buying the two day pass, that was a good deal. I definitely recommend bringing bags filled with food and snacks. The prices are outrageous! $5 for a hotdog, $6 for a small bucket of popcorn

There's a wide variety of rides, and some great water play areas also. Great on hot days. We will get the season's pass next year and go more often, its so close and so much fun!

My family and I have season passes to Sesame Place. We love this park! Our children are 2 and 5 and we try and go about 3 times a month. We never get tired of it and still have some things that we have not see or done. It is a very clean park and such a blast for the kids!

PROS: The characters, the water attractions, the shows
CONS: It does get quite crowded. Wish there were more rides.

We brought our three year old here this summer. He had an absolute blast. There are tons of sprinkles, water rides for the kids and regular rides. The characters are all over the park, which is not that big which is a good thing. You can purchase the 2 day elmo ticket for the same price as a one day ticket.

I took my daughter here for her 3rd birthday and she had blast. they had allot of things that were appropriate for a 3 year old to get on by herself. They had Elmo's world, They had a beach party show. They had a show with oscar in it by himself. We also had dinner with the characters which was great.

Sesame Place is awesome for the 7 and under crowd. Most of sesame is water rides and the kids love it. The food lines can be crazy and expensive. They also have a great parade twice a day. The shows are free and the kids love them. Highly recommended.

I'm basing this review on a trip I took with my toddler. He had a great time! There are a variety of rides, so children of all ages have something to do! The admission is a little on the pricey side, but you can get the two-day "elmo" pass and it's a pretty good deal. Make sure you bring your own food/drinks. They say no coolers are allowed - so don't bring a cooler! Just bring some non-perishable snacks and drinks. If you NEED to get a drink, buy the souvenier cup b/c refills are cheap (and save the cup for your next visit!)
Definitely recommend this place, but don't plan on staying for more than 2-3 hours with your toddler!

PROS: Variety of rides for all different ages (including adults!)
CONS: Pricey admission/parking/food
