What do SeaWorld and Sesame Street have in common? A new partnership! That’s right! SeaWorld and Sesame Place, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street, announced a 37-year partnership today to include the development of a new Sesame Place theme park in the US. There is currently only one other Sesame Place in the US that is located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.
The Sesame Place park is scheduled to open no later than 2021 in a location to be determined. This agreement also gives SeaWorld the option to build additional Sesame Place these parks in other locations in the US and makes it possible for Sesame Street characters to continue to appear at the Sesame Street lands inside of Busch Gardens and other SeaWorld locations. There will also be a Sesame Street land built in SeaWorld Orlando by fall of 2022 in the area that is currently the Shamu Happy Harbor play area.
The theme parks feature rides, character shows, parades, and rides as well as seasonal events. According to Jeffrey Dunn, CEO of Sesame Workshop, “Building more Sesame Place theme parks will enable us to connect with even more families and provide funding that supports our nonprofit mission.”
