Sesame Place, Langhorne

3.4
Based on the beloved television show, Sesame Place brings Sesame Street to life through amusement park rides. Water attractions, shows, parades, and holiday events have added to the park’s fun since it opened in 1980. The 2014 addition to the park, Cookie Monster Land, features five imaginative rides, adventurous net climbing, and a soft play area for the park’s youngest guests. Of course, no visit to this park is complete without meeting your favorite Sesame Street characters. To visit Sesame Place on your trip to Langhorne, use our Langhorne day trip website .

  • Sesame place is a really fun amusement/water park. It's much more of a water park than amusement park although there are definitely rides. You can spend a few hours but mostly a full day. Go in a bath...  more »
  • My toddler is obsessed with Elmo, so planned the trip. We visited the park on Sat afternoon. We were there by 12:30 pm. We were able to find parking upfront. It was a hot day so kids energy was going ...  more »
  • We had heard great things about Sesame Place from family and friends who went, so when we had a wedding nearby we decided to extend out trip and bring the kids (1, 3) to Sesame Place. We went in early...  more »

  • DO BETTER SESAME PLACE! Great concept that should be improved. Let me begin by saying my son had a great time, and enjoyed the rides and water play area. However, this park needs to step up its game and perhaps new management. For one it’s not kept well. The bathrooms are a traumatic experience and I’m not sure why it’s so hard for staff to keep the park cleaner throughout the day. Also the wait time for rides AND food will take up about half of your time there. Food is substandard, and not in the typical amusement park way, but really in a school cafeteria kinda way, but with amusement park prices. We went to character brunch, which was cute- but breakfast would have been better at McDonald’s and there weren’t that many characters. I will say that the ones that were there were mostly engaging, but don’t expect to see big bird or Cookie Monster or Oscar the grouch there... anyway if you want to take one for the team and visit for that kid in love with Sesame Street then go for it. Otherwise save your coins for Disney or LEGO land.
  • What can I say...Sesame Place is Sesame Place :) Probably what you come to love and expect to take your kids to. After hearing friends and family go on and on about it, we finally decided to take a last minute trip down to Langhorne, PA to spend the weekend at Sesame Place. My son had quite a blast! There was a pretty cool parade that takes place twice a day (once around noon and then again around 700PM). There are a decent amount of ride attractions, as well as water rides, but all in all the theme park itself really isn't that big and you can definitely experience it all within 2 days or so. The only thing that deterred our specific trip a little was the fact that 85-90 degree weather turned out to be 100 degree weather during our visit, but thankfully the plentiful amount of water rides allowed us to cool down a bit during this heat wave. Also, make sure you pay extra to book a breakfast and/or lunch with the characters at the only 'dine-in' "restaurant" they have at this location. It's definitely worth the extra money for the experience, as you can sit down with your family at your own private table to enjoy a meal and have all the various Sesame Place characters come out for song and dance, as well as meet and greet and photo opportunities for the kids. However, most unfortunately, the sole reason I can't give this place 5 stars is the food. Vile would be a compliment...and I have been to plenty of theme parks and similar places, however the food here had to be some of the most awful I've come across in a long, long time. Also, try to plan ahead, the trip isn't that cheap - tickets for a two-day pass will run you about $60+ a person, and that doesn't include your hotel stay of course as well as extra breakfast/luncheon with the characters. Definitely book via Sesame Places' website or call them for a package deal, by far your best bet. Unfortunately we booked the trip so last minute that we had to book it all separately, almost doubling the price!
  • Fun place to bring the young kids! If you have a young child, I cannot recommend this theme park highly enough. Sesame Place's park layout is very thoughtful and easy to access. Not too large, not too small. Very manageable. If you can, be sure to check out the parade at the end of the day. Your child will love seeing all his or her favorite Sesame Street characters up close and personal.
  • Had a blast here! Great park, perfect size, very well kept. Fun rides and a lot of them allow parents to ride with your child. The daily parade gives you the opportunity to see all the main sesame Street characters. Water rides as well as dry rides available. I suggest 1 day for each to get the full experience. Definitely recommend to all ages. At 38, I had just as much fun as my 5 year old!
  • First time going to sesame place with the 6yr old and 15mo old. The staff were nice and sweet and very helpful. We picked a perfect day to go!! Fun for the family!! The water rides and getting a chance to get pictures with the sesame street characters was the best. It made my children happy and me as well. Definitely would recommend this place to other families. Definitely would come back!
