Thanks to SeaWorld Entertainment, there will be several new ways to “get to Sesame Street” in the coming years. SeaWorld and the nonprofit organization behind “Sesame Street” announced last week they are extending their almost four-decade partnership through 2031.
During that time SeaWorld will build a second Sesame Place theme park to complement its existing location outside Philadelphia. The park will open no later than 2021. SeaWorld will also open a “Sesame Street” land at SeaWorld Orlando by fall 2022.
SeaWorld’s current licensing agreement with Sesame Street was set to expire in 2021.
"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, in a prepared statement. "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."
Stay tuned for more details on the new “Sesame Street” land expansion at SeaWorld Orlando. In the meantime don’t miss Electric Ocean coming to the park this June.
