Day 3 of our End of Summer Extravaganza included a stop at Sesame Place!

It’s sort of part of our an end of summer tradition, this is the third year in a row that we’ve gone at the end of August, because it’s a great time to go! Some schools are already back in session, which makes it less crowded, but it’s also a great time to know a season pass holder – because they can get $10 guest passes, which is what we did! Tickets to Sesame Place are usually $65+ {woah!} so $30 for all 3 of us for a day of fun – I’m in!

Flash back to THIS POST for Brooks’ first visit as a toddler!

Ok, first up – our favorite rides!

Every single ride at Sesame Place is for kids. Which is great because there is so much the littles can all enjoy.

The only bummer {for me} was that I had to go on all of them with the kids. Bouncy and spinner rides aren’t my favorites and at other theme parks the boys can easily and happily ride them together or solo. I wasn’t a fan of having to go on so many myself – but obviously I’ll do it for the kids!

Another bummer was since I was there with two kids by myself, MOST of the rides were for 2 passengers, so I would have to ride it once with one kid, while the other kid waited with the ride operator and then swap. So an added bonus was that I got to ride the ride I didn’t want to ride twice.

Awesome.

Favorites:

Brooks’ Pick: Blast Off {picture below}

Graham’s Pick: Captain Cookie’s High C’s Adventure {photo above}

Mama’s Pick: Watching any ride from the side! Ha!

Another fun thing worth mentioning is the Monster + Mini Monster Club House – this is a large play area where the kids can run, climb and explore, which the boys LOVED chasing each other in.

Along with the Snuffy’s Slides, which is a kids-only {mom win!} double slide in Elmo’s World!

But compared to other theme parks for kids, there aren’t as many rides at Sesame Place – it’s more of a waterpark, with LOTS of water fun and great shows!

We always take breaks throughout the day to see all the fun shows, which is a great way to get out of heat. Let’s Play Together and Elmo the Musical are always amazing to see.

Pro Tip: For Elmo the Musical, make sure you get in line EARLY or you will miss it for sure, it’s always packed!

Our FAVORITE show – definitely a Can’t Miss if you are visiting Sesame Place is the Neighborhood Street Party Parade.

Pro Tip: Bring a towel to save your spot and get there an hour early to make sure you get a good spot! 

We brought towels to save our spot, grabbed ice cream as a little treat and got great seats for watching the parade, which is totally worth it because it gets CROWDED!

The parade itself is super fun and interactive. All the characters come out to sit and dance, it’s a good time and worth it to see for sure. And the boys LOVED being in the front so they could really see everything easily.

Pro Tip: Extra Large lollipop will keep little babes waiting patiently for the parade to start

Site Note: Not sure he deserved it. BUT he did share it with me, so thats a win.

After the parade we made our way over to some of the water park fun. There are a few great splash pads for kids of all ages, which my boys really loved.

There’s also a wave pool {kid sized}, lazy river and a bunch of water slides for the kids to enjoy! Sesame Place has great things for kids all year long, but let’s be real – it’s all about the H20!

On the day we visited there were a bunch of food trucks on property, I got this awesome brisket sandwich, which was such a win because the park food is…park food. This sandwich was delicious and it’s great they invite local trucks to come by!

We had an AMAZING day at Sesame Place! The boys loved it and it was a great way to spend one of the last days before the end of summer and back to school!

Maybe we will be back for one of their seasonal Halloween or Christmas events – Have you been?
