Halloween Family Fun at Sesame Place

by Kaitlin Simmer

Now that the summer weather is over and I am looking for more family activities to match the season, I am open to some new locations and things to engage my children for the day.  Not only did we find family fun, we found the perfect activity for the season – Sesame Place’s Spooktacular!
Nestled in Langhorne, PA, Sesame Place was created after the much-loved children’s television show. Every year from September 29th through October 28th, Sesame Place is decorated for fall and all of your favorite Sesame Street characters wear their favorite halloween costumes for The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular!

“Sesame Street, the nation’s only theme park based entirely on Sesame Street, will celebrate Halloween for five weekends this fall.  Between Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, October 28th, Sesame Place will be transformed into a not-too-spooky Halloween haven featuring two themed mazes, a Sesame Street character hayride, three Halloween shows, and everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends dressed in their Halloween attire.”

The staff and characters were friendly and made sure to attend to each guest.  The park was clean and the entertainers were talented and energetic.  They truly conveyed the spirit of Sesame Street and the characters’ costumes were elaborate and really looked like the true puppets.
The rides were appropriate for the younger age group that is attracted to this park.  The ride themes were very exciting for the kids as they applied to favorite Sesame Street characters.
Another wonderful fall addition was the trick-or-treating located throughout the park where children can receive candy, snacks, and toothbrushes. Many of the children wore costumes. There was also the addition of two mazes that were interactive and beautifully decorated and narrated by the voices of Abby Cadabby and Count Von Count. 

 

New in 2012 is Ernie’s Rubber Duckie Costume Party, a non-stop, fun-filled time where everyone’s invited to dance their day away! Moving lights and fun, upbeat music will make you feel as if you’ve arrived at a Sesame-styled disco.

Dress the family up in Halloween costumes and enjoy trick-or-treating throughout the park and a family-friendly hayride with everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends. In addition to the park’s Spooktacular-focused attractions, Sesame Place’s dozen dry rides are also open for guests to enjoy.

The whole experience was a wonderful family day where the fall season was enjoyed and my children will not soon forget!
