SeaWorld Parks announced they are adding Sesame Street lands to each of their parks!
SeaWorld has extended a 37 year deal with Sesame Street to allow development of Sesame Street theme parks across the country.
The new license agreement between Sesame Workshop and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment extends SeaWorld’s status as Sesame Workshop’s exclusive theme park partner in the United States, with the second Sesame Place theme park scheduled to open no later than mid 2021 in a U.S. location to be determined. After the opening of the second Sesame Place, SeaWorld will have the option to build additional Sesame Place theme parks in the U.S. The agreement also makes it possible for Sesame Street characters to continue to appear at the existing distinct 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 fall 2022.
“We share Sesame’s goal of educating and entertaining generations of children, and the extension of our partnership furthers SeaWorld’s mission to provide guests with experiences that matter,” said Joel Manby, President and CEO of SeaWorld. “We are thrilled to be able to grow the presence of Sesame Place theme parks in the U.S. and help our company diversify its brand portfolio and expand into new areas.”
SeaWorld Orlando announced a month ago the addition of a new attraction, Infinity Falls, which is slated for a 2018 opening date and would be themed around the South American rainforests and the animals that call it home.
This is all part of SeaWorld’s continuous strides to improve their parks and stay pace with other parks continually adding new experiences and attractions.
