Sesame Place Review
Next to the Oxford Valley Mall, this water and theme park based on the popular children's show Sesame Street is mostly for kids 2 to 10 and their families. Here children crawl, climb, and jump; float, slide, and splash; and meet, greet, and perhaps hug the ageless Big Bird and his friends. Though there are plenty of dry-land activities, the highlights of the park—especially on a hot summer day—are the water rides, including the popular Rambling River and Sky Splash, and the interactive Count's Splash Castle. As befits a park for preteens, the four "thrill" rides in Elmo's World and the roller coaster—Vapor Trail—are modest by theme-park standards, but they've got more than enough excitement for young riders. Other kid favorites are the daily, and nightly, parades, shows, and Sesame Neighborhood, a replica of the beloved TV street.
