Sesame Street theme park coming to San Diego in 2021
POSTED 21 Oct 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
Sesame Place, the second theme park to result from a collaboration between the makers of Sesame Street and SeaWorld Entertainment, is to open in San Diego in 2021.

The first Sesame Place park opened near Philadelphia in 1980, while areas of SeaWorld parks, such as in San Diego, San Antonio and Orlando, have been developed into Sesame Street-themed zones in recent years.

To be located on the current site of Aquatic San Diego, the new Sesame Place theme park will include seven themed rides, an interactive musical play area and 11 water attractions, including a 500,000-gallon wave pool. There will also be an interactive Sesame Street Neighbourhood area featuring live character shows and parades.

The park will also be a Certified Autism Center, following in the footsteps of the Philadelphia park, which was the first in the world to be designated.

To attain this certification, there will be staff-wide autism sensitivity and awareness training, a park-specific sensory guide on the park's website, and designated quiet spaces with adjustable lighting and comfortable seating.

"The opening of Sesame Place San Diego will give guests a unique and powerful way to experience Sesame Street, enable us to connect with even more families, and further our educational mission," said Steve Youngwood, president for media and education, and chief operating officer of Sesame Workshop.
