Sesame Place isn’t just for small kids, there are so many attractions for the entire family. Now that my kids are older and don’t really watch Sesame Street, I was afraid that they wouldn’t want to visit Sesame Place but I was wrong. It’s is one of Pennsylvania’s most popular amusement parks and here is why you should take the kids to Sesame Place Langhorne, PA.
Sesame Place is conveniently located off of I-95 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and is accessible from most major cities in the Mid-Atlantic, including Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey beaches, Baltimore and Washington DC.

Get ready to sing, dance and clap along at our daily character shows and our spectacular Neighborhood Street Party Parade. So go before they grow® to the nation’s only theme park based entirely on Sesame Street.
Take the Kids to Sesame Place
If your kids are afraid of characters, this is the perfect place to break them in and make them feel comfortable. I have told this to many of my friends that are on the fence about heading to Disney, but their kids are afraid of the characters. Trying the kids out a local amusement park like Sesame Place is a good start. There are special events throughout the day that the characters will be at and at different parts of the park. This way, you can plan the day accordingly if your child is still afraid. Jaxon, my youngest, was always afraid of the characters, but we finally made him feel comfortable at Sesame Place.
The great thing about Sesame Place is that there are different themes throughout the year. Since we are only under 2 hours away from Sesame Place, I know that many people buy a season pass which is 6 easy payments$18.83 per person. But if you do want to spend the night, I would recommend the Courtyard Philadelphia Langhorne. All packages include breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children, 2 Elmo 2 day passes, a rubber ducky per child and complimentary shuttle service to and from the park.
Summertime at Sesame Place June 19 through September 2
It’s crazy, but my kids still get excited to see characters around theme parks. It will be a very sad day when they stop, but even if they aren’t interested in seeing the characters Sesame Place has rides and slides for kids of all ages. The summertime is one of our favorite times to visit because of the water activities for kids of all ages. We went with my cousin who has a two year old daughter and my oldest is ten years old. There was something for everyone, including mom. Here is a tip- have kids wear their swimsuits, but try to get there when park opens and hit all the rides before lunch and the water rides after lunch. There are changing rooms and lockers to rent.
My family had an opportunity to visit Sesame Place a few years back for Media Day during The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular. Celebrate silly, not-too-spooky fun at The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular at Sesame Place®. Select dates from September 22 through October 29, the park is transformed into a family-friendly Halloween haven! It was so exciting seeing the characters and watching the expression on the kids’ faces as they ran toward each character with open arms. Each section of Sesame Place was decorated for Halloween, including Ernie’s Rubber Duckie Costume Party, two themed mazes, the Sesame Street Character hayride, and of course three Halloween themed shows including everyon e’s favorite Sesame Street friends.
