Turns out while I was at breakfast at One Shot Big Bird called and invited me over. Now I have no idea how he got my number but needless to say I was siked. So we packed up the car and took the 30 minute drive to Langhorn a.k.a the birth place of Sesame Place. ( 100 Sesame Road, Langhorne, PA 19047).
Overall the park is smaller than I thought it would be but still a lot of fun. The park has both water rides and dry rides which are all mixed together. If you are under 3 or under 44″ tall you will not be able to ride the Vapor Trails roller coaster at the entrance so b-line it to the Elmo’s World section. This section was made for us small fries. You have your tea cup rides, your giant slides and your standard moon bounce (See Mom’s Notes). It was over cast so we did not do the water rides but they did look pretty awesome.

I did get to take pictures with Ernie and Bert and Cookie Monster. Catch them as they are walking out and you won’t have to wait in the long line. If you are looking for Elmo and Big Bird that will cost you but you can find them in Elmo’s World at the 1-2-3 Smile with me! Photo Studio.
To commemmorate my trip I did tough it out for an air brush anchor tattoo ($8.00). I wonder how many tattoos Big Bird has?
Skip getting a character sketch – Apprently he thought I looked like that kid from Two and a Half Men….Don’t spend $20 to find that out what celebrity you don’t look like.
We had a really good time but there are some things you should know before you go. The park is small so if you are thinking of making a weekend out of it, unless your kids are happy doing the same thing over and over again, you might be in trouble. Check out my notes below to help you prepare for the trip.
Once you get off 95 it is really well marked with signs everywhere. Click Here for directions.
It should be called “Fun for Profit Place” because this place is expensive. Kids 23 months and younger are free but they put parents through the ringer and on the weekends charge $55.99 (+tax)/person. Click here to see the weekday deals and other discounts.
The places look different but every food place sells the same burgers, chicken fingers and salads. You are allows to bring in your own food but they limit the size of cooler you can bring in.
Skip this one if possible. Parents are not allowed on this one. Because we waited in line forever I watched it over and over again. Once the kids got their turn and realized Mom or Dad has to wait on the sidelines…the tears started. The Bed Bounce actually scared a lot of kids because the edges are so deep kids kept getting sucked in. The ride attendent spent most her time pulling kids out.
Want to pack less gear? You can rent a stroller when you get there.
Since the park is all mixed up with water rides and dry rides you might want to splurge and rent a cabana.

$15 to $18 (so not cool)
