Sesame Place 30th Birthday Celebration

By Divina

Two weekends ago as an early birthday present to Babyboy, the Dancinghotdogs family headed to Langhorne, PA to celebrate Sesame Place’s 30th Birthday and Babyboy’s 2nd Birthday with several other NYC bloggers.   It was our family’s first visit to this Sesame Street themed park and we all fell in love with the place.

I mean what is there not to love!

Sesame Place is a fantastic theme/water park for the whole family.  The day we went was perfect for family fun.  They have entertainment for all ages whether it’s the Big Bird’s Rambling River, Flying Fish, Bert & Ernie’s Slip and Slide or the different live shows and parades.

By far our two favorites were their latest new show: Elmo Rocks! Rock n’ Roll show which totally ROCKED! and Count’s Splash Castle.

Here is a picture we tried to take of the family but since Elmo was on the stage. Babyboy was not interested in hamming it up for the camera.

I loved how the park had age appropriate areas for everyone. They had roller coasters for bigger kids and adults and an under five area for Babyboy that had blocks, Sunny Day carousel and bouncy play. Perfect!

For lunch we were visited by the Count and Ernie and Babyboy went straight up to Ernie for a hug. I was nervous that he would be scared of the life size characters but not my brave boy.  I just wished we had a chance to take a picture with Elmo who is Babyboy’s hero/best friend!

and all the fun we had with my buddy Nikki and her son Daniel who made the day even more special.

The 30th year celebration is taking place all year long. Single day general admission is $53 and children under 23 months are free.

We are definitely are planning to going back this year. I want to go for two days so we can schedule in naps and not have to feed Babyboy sugar to keep him going.

I mean check out how tired these boys look!

And we did not even get a chance to do everything!

I would highly recommend you dine with the characters since they don’t have scheduled picture opportunities like Disney has and having your kids meet their heroes makes the experience that much more wonderful.
