Sesame Street Land is Coming to SeaWorld Orlando Fall 2022

SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. and Sesame Workshop announced the extension of their collaborative relationship through December 2031, to include the development of an a new Sesame Street land to be built in SeaWorld Orlando by Fall 2022.

The extension of their 37-year partnership will include the development of an additional Sesame Place® theme park in the United States. The current Sesame Place theme park, located in Langhorne, PA (between Philadelphia and New York City), is the nation’s only theme park based entirely on the award-winning educational program.

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.

“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 Chief Executive Officer of SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. “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.”

“Expanding our Sesame Place theme park footprint will both deepen our relationship with longstanding fans and help us to connect with new families,” said Steve Youngwood, Chief Operating Officer of Sesame Workshop. “This partnership will also enable the Workshop to continue producing high-quality educational programming for the next generation.”

The new Sesame Street land at SeaWorld Orlando will include an overhaul of Shamu’s Happy Harbor, a play area behind Shamu Stadium that features children’s rides. It will continue to forward the park’s commitment to pull away from animal-based shows and diversify the park’s offerings.
