SeaWorld and Sesame Workshop expand partnership
SeaWorld Entertainment and Sesame Workshop have extended their 37-year partnership to include the development of an additional Sesame Place theme park in the United States. The current Sesame Place theme park, located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, between Philadelphia and New York City, is the nation’s only theme park based entirely on the program Sesame Street.
The second Sesame Place theme park is set to open no later than mid 2021 in a U.S. location that is yet to be determined, after which SeaWorld will have the option to build additional Sesame Place theme parks in the U.S. This agreement also means that Sesame Street characters can continue to appear at the existing Sesame Street lands inside the company’s two Busch Gardens theme parks and SeaWorld theme parks in San Diego and San Antonio, as well as a new Sesame Street land to be built in SeaWorld Orlando by 2022.
