"Grandkids special day"
August 2019
Overall sesame place was clean around the park and staff were friendly . Characters were fun and patient with the kids.

The eating area however was not very well maintained.
Tables dirty ,had to ask someone to clean ,which they did very quickly.
The wait to get food was ridiculous.
There seemed to be no one in charge to facilitate the line to keep moving . The servers seemed uninterested in their job.
Ax we waited in line for well over 25 minutes for food that was served cafeteria style ,pick and go was very unorganized.
The line virtually stopped because what they wanted in the line was not ready .
Instead of one of the staff move the people forward ,for things they weren’t waiting ?
For ,didn’t happen .
Bathroom were not very clean .no attendant in a very busy bathroom.Someone went into a closet to find toilet paper !

Exceptions are made for guests with special dietary needs to include food allergies and baby food/formula. Guests with special dietary needs or food allergies can bring items in a cooler no larger than 12” x 12” in size. Contact Park Security at the bag check upon arrival for approval to bring in these special dietary foods. Picnic tables are provided in select locations of the parking lot for outside food consumption. Grills and open fires are not allowed.

Do you have ATMs in the park?

ATMs are located at Finders Keepers Gift Shop, Cookie’s Café, and Sesame Games Playhouse.

Are pets allowed?

Service Animals are welcome at Sesame Place. Service Animals are limited to dogs and miniature horses that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times unless such leash or harness interferes with the service the animal is providing, or the handler is unable to use a leash or harness due to his/her disability. The animal also must be housebroken. Service animals are the responsibility of the owner and cannot be left unattended. Guests are responsible for the clean-up and for controlling their service animal’s behavior. If at any time, your service animal’s behavior becomes a threat to the safety and well-being of other park guests or animals, you will be asked to leave the premises.

What if I need to leave the park to get something out of my car? Can I get back into the park?

Yes. Before you leave the park, have your hand stamped upon exiting. When you return to the park, proceed through the bag check area and enter the park through the Re-entry gate where you will present your hand stamp to the park ambassador.

What amenities are available to parents with infants and toddlers?

There are numerous amenities for parents with infants and toddlers, including changing stations in each restroom facility, bottle warming at the Family Care Center across from the 123 Playground, and ID wristbands for children available at the Welcome Center. Lost child announcements are made if a lost child is brought to the Family Care Center. Set up a meeting spot in advance should your family get separated. Teach your child to find a park employee with a name tag and ask for help. And always carry a picture of your child.

Is a Child Swap program available?

Yes, Sesame Place offers a Child Swap program on select Dry Attractions. This program is helpful when one adult wants to ride with more than one child, but the ride does not allow the entire party to ride at the same time. Once at the front of the line, the adult can ride with one child while the other waits with a non-rider. Once the ride is complete, the children switch spots and the adult can ride with the other child without having to wait in line again. Please note that Sesame Place ambassadors may not supervise children or ride with a child as part of the child swap program. A child swap must be done by a member of the party to allow the children to ride. Child Swap is not available on water attractions.

What happens if it rains?

Sunny Day Guarantee: If weather affects ride operations or impacts the park’s operating hours, visit Guest Relations to exchange your ticket for a Sunny Day Guarantee Ticket. The ticket is valid for one return visit. Guests will receive one ticket for every paid admission ticket. You can also visit Sesame Place direct website within one week of your visit date to submit a Sunny Day Guarantee claim. Not valid on Season Passes, chaperone, and complimentary tickets. The following may not be eligible and should be verified at Guest Relations: Promotional/discount tickets (group sale tickets) and promotional multi-day tickets. Refunds are not issued for weather.

Can I save a seat for the parade?

To give all guests an equal opportunity to view the parade, we do not allow the use of unattended blankets, strollers, bags or towels as a means of saving seats. All unattended items will be taken to the Welcome Center.

Are Segways permitted in the park?

Sesame Place is committed to providing guests a safe and enjoyable experience.

We are pleased to offer other forms of personal transportation, including electric convenience vehicles and standard wheelchairs and we encourage you to contact Guest Services with any questions you may have.
