Sesame Place essentials
Designed specifically for young children and their parents, it has three-dozen activities specifically designed for the age group, including rides, a roller coaster, water attractions, choreographed stage shows, a musical parade, and a meet-and-greet.
The park isn’t cheap, if you only intend to visit one day: $53 a person. But the “Elmo’s Any Two Day Ticket” costs $53 as well, so you might as well stay for a while, explore other area attractions on day two. The park is 30 minutes north of Philadelphia. A base season pass, $89 per person, gives unlimited admission plus 30% off food and merchandise.
