They should have built an Intamin themed kids area instead :roll:

^^This was planned way before InBev. It's the 2010 projects that have been put on hold.

Where's the animated coaster POV?

Could the kiddie coaster be a clone of Vapor trail?

The English equivalent of Sesame Street would be Rainbow, but they haven't made any episodes since 1992, and the show does lack some political correctness

Maybe it's a New York Street of London themed. Even if they don't have that in London. Or they might just use the Sesame Street rip-off caracters from Heide Park and say it's European.

I am excited for this new land, especially for my son who has "outgrown" the kiddie rides at Land of the Dragons. I hope these rides are aimed at the elementary school crowd and not the toddlers.

Now I need to get my son to start watching Sesame Street over the winter so he might look foward to meeting Elmo or Big Bird.

This feels odd to me. Not bad, just odd. There's a certain feel/charm/style that BGE has, and though it's Euro themed, Sesame Street just doesn't seem to fit well.

Eh, I'll just buy my Elmo souvenir beer stein and enjoy riding Grover.

^I would agree with you if they did it where you walking into this new area, and it was a replica of the Sesame Street set with rides included, but since they are giving it a European Theme, I think it could work out pretty well.
