Cookie Monster was front and centre at the “cookie breaking” of the new Sesame Place San Diego, set to open in 2021. The loveable, googley-eyed, blue monster was joined by some of his favourite furry friends (Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Count von Count) and local civic leaders as they celebrated the groundbreaking of Sesame Place as only Cookie Monster can – with cookies!
SeaWorld Park President and future Sesame Place Park President Marilyn Hannes, Chula Vista Mayor Mary Salas and Chula Vista City Councilmember Steve Padilla participated in the official groundbreaking ceremony.
SeaWorld Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street, recently revealed that San Diego will be the location of a new Sesame Place theme park. Sesame Place San Diego, only the second Sesame Place in the United States, will be the first Sesame Place on the West Coast and will open in spring 2021.
Sesame Place San Diego will be located on the site of the current Aquatica San Diego, SeaWorld’s waterpark. The new, nearly 17-acre park will feature all the fun, laughter, and learning of Sesame Street in a highly immersive way with exciting family rides, water slides, live character shows, parades and interactive experiences that will extend the laughter and learning of Sesame Street.
