In May 2017, it was announced that a Sesame Street themed area would be added to SeaWorld Orlando, aimed with a 2022 open date.[1] A year later, an announcement was made that the new area, Sesame Street at SeaWorld, would open in Shamu's Happy Harbor in 2019. The area will be designed after the Sesame Street set, with locales such as 123 Sesame Street and Hooper's Store, and will feature walk-around characters, wet and dry rides and a daily parade featuring the Muppet characters.[2]


SeaWorld San Diego

Sesame Street Bay of Play opened at SeaWorld San Diego in 2008, replacing Shamu's Happy Harbor.

The following rides are found at SeaWorld San Diego:

  • Abby's Seastar Spin: a spinning teacup ride
  • Elmo's Flying Fish: a rotating flying attraction, similar to Disneyland's "Dumbo the Flying Elephant" ride
  • Oscar's Rockin' Eel: a rocking tugboat ride themed like an eel

In 2018, a version of the Neighborhood Street Party parade at Sesame Place debuted, titled the Sesame Street Party Parade.



For Halloween (2009-2010), their character breakfasts feature Count von Count.[3] Abby Cadabby's Halloween Adventure is a 4,000 sq ft pathway filled with interactive elements, where kids help find Abby's magic wand. In 2011, Count Von Count's Spooktacular Breakfast was offered as character dining.

A Sesame Street Christmas is a stage show added in December 2009. Character dining at the park was seasonally themed to "Elmo and Friends Christmas Breakfast".

As with SeaWorld San Diego, a version of the Neighborhood Street Party parade at Sesame Place debuted in 2018, also titled the Sesame Street Party Parade.
