Earlier this year, SeaWorld announced that something big would be launching at their Orlando park. Construction is already underway for the brand new expansion which will be entirely themed on Sesame Street! That’s right, fans of the show will be able to walk along the famous street for the very first time, enjoying a selection of new rides and entertainment experiences, when the new area opens in spring 2019.
The Sesame Street expansion will recreate classic scenes from the show, giving you the chance to explore this iconic neighbourhood. You’ll be able to visit Mr Hooper’s store, stop by Big Bird’s Nest, walk through Abby Cadabby’s garden and sit on the famous 123 stoop! You’ll also be able to get up close to some of your favourite characters, so make sure you’re ready to snap a few selfies.
Of course, that’s not all. SeaWorld have just revealed details for not just one, but six brand new rides! All of the rides will be family-friendly, so that both the kids and big kids can experience them together. SeaWorld haven’t given too much away just yet, but they have shared a few details of what’s in store…
Big Bird’s Twirl ‘N’ Whirl- This attraction will bring a new and unique twist to an old favourite, as this is Big Bird’s version of the tea cup ride. Get ready to spin around in your very own nest.
Abby’s Flower Tower- Pick a flower pot and prepare to soar up above the ground on this exciting ride. You’ll get an amazing view of Sesame Street from the top!
Elmo’s Choo Choo Train- Join Elmo as he embarks on a search for some of his favourite things in nature. You’ll have plenty of fun on this train ride.
Cookie Drop- Like the name suggests this is a ride inspired by the loveable Cookie Monster. It’s a vertical drop ride, but don’t worry, it will be family-friendly.
Slimey’s Slider- This ride will send you whirling through Oscar’s treasured compost collection for a “grouchy good time”.
Super Grover’s Box Car Derby- Get ready for an exciting race on this fun-filled coaster. There’s big turns, fun hills and mini-dives! This is the perfect choice for a first-coaster if you’re visiting with little ones.
Once you’ve experienced all of the rides, make sure you check out the new Sesame Street parade. This will be SeaWorld’s first ever daily parade, so you won’t want to miss it. Line the parade route and get ready to wave along to your favourite characters as they glide past on a series of colourful floats.
