A few weeks back we visited Sesame Place for the 4th of July weekend! We went on a very hot Sunday (it was 100 degrees that particular day) so we were able to spend a bulk of our time in the water section of the park. I went with my husband, my parents, Hayley, and Zane. We got to the park that day at 9 am and left that night at 8 pm! That is how much fun we had! If you have a child who is even a little bit in love with Sesame Street, do yourself a favor and visit this park! I can go on and on about Sesame Place but unless you visit, you will never know just how truly magical it is!
As mentioned, we spent a lot of our visit at The Count’s Splash Castle which is their multi-level splash park complete with water slides, hose jets, water wheels, 1,000-gallon 8-ft. tipping bucket, and so much more. Both of my kids were too small for the bigger water slides throughout the park (although I have to say I went on them and they are awesome) so we stayed at the splash castle. It gets crowded, especially during a very hot summer day, so be sure to keep your eyes on your kids when they climb up to go on the water slides or maybe even go on them- the choice is yours! Kids have to ride separate to go down the slide, but parents can wait at the bottom or go on immediately before or after them. We spent at least 2 hours at the water park. It was so much fun! When I told Hayley and Zane, we should check out the other parts of the park, they cried! The Count’s Splash Castle was a huge success!
We then spent the rest of the day at each of the wonderful shows that Sesame Place offers each day, complete with your admission ticket. Since it was very hot and the kids were getting tired, they really enjoyed going from show to show. Each time they saw Elmo, their eyes completely lit up. Sesame does a wonderful job of making each of their shows interactive and fun! The energy that all the characters put into the show is amazing! Again, if they love Sesame Street, imagine putting them in front of their favorite characters live. Need I say more…
