Langhorne, PA (Oct. 10, 2013) – Sesame Place®, the nation’s only theme park based entirely on the award‐winning show Sesame Street®, will open Cookie’s Monster Land ™, in May 2014. Cookie Monster will serve as host to all of his monster friends in this colorful and imaginative new land featuring five exciting rides, a three‐story net climb and a soft play area for the park’s youngest visitors. Following in the footsteps of the neighboring Elmo’s World area, everyone’s favorite Sesame Street monsters will come together in a fun‐filled land with attractions and play areas families can enjoy together throughout the year. The area’s feature ride, Captain Cookie’s High “C’s” Adventures, will take guests around a track with multiple small inclines that mimic the gentle rolling waves of the ocean. On the new Oscar’s Rotten Rusty Rockets, guests can join Oscar the Grouch and his best pal Slimey on a space mission in trash‐can rocketships. Children 42 inches and taller, can take a ride on Honker Dinger Derby, where colorful cars will move up and down while simultaneously rotating in small and large circles. Flying Cookie Jars will spin guests around in a giant cookie jar 40 feet above the ground for a monster’s eye view of the park. Families can also move and groove across the dance floor in spinning disco ball teacups with everyone’s favorite furry monsters on Monster Mix‐Up. “Cookie’s Monster Land promises to be an exciting addition to Sesame Place, where millions of families have experienced the joy of being a kid – or being a kid again – over the past three and half decades,” says Bob Caruso, park president. “At Sesame Place, we are always looking for opportunities to offer our guests exciting and fun experiences, and this large scale renovation through the development of Cookie’s Monster Land will do just that.”
In addition to rides, the land features a new monster‐themed climbing area for all ages to enjoy. Everyone is welcome at the brand new Monster Clubhouse, where kids and parents alike will have a monster of a good time climbing and exploring together on this fun filled, 3‐story colorful net climb. For kids 5 and under, the new Mini Monster Clubhouse is a soft play area where even the youngest explorers can jump, climb, crawl and play. Families looking to refuel will find an expanded menu of graband‐go meals like sandwiches, fresh fruit and vegetable trays, and juice boxes to satisfy hungry little monsters at the Cookie’s Sometimes Anytime Food Market. The updated “1‐2‐3 Smile with Me!”interactive photo location also gives kids the chance to share a furry hug and a smile with Cookie Monster and friends.
