Who's had ENOUGH snow this year?! #sesameplace


Good Ship Sesame is getting a facelift! Your Sesame Street friends wanted to take a ride on the ship, so we are making some enhancements! In 1990, the 60-foot Good Ship Sesame docked at the entrance to Sesame Island, our tropical-themed area of the park. This spring, you will see that your Sesame friends have now climbed aboard. Check out the photos below and make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our Blog for more Sesame Place updates!

I didn't realize the ship had been there since 1990 and thought it was newer than that.

The foundation for Cookie’s Sometimes Anytime Food Market is being placed and samples of the giant cookie jar have arrived at the park. Cookie’s Sometimes Anytime Food Market will be located in the new Cookie’s Monster Land opening May 2014. The food market will offer a variety of grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, snacks and beverages to satisfy hungry little monsters.


This rendering shows what the final cookie jar market will look like.


See the outline of just how big this cookie jar will be!


This is a sample of the exterior wall of the cookie jar.

Wow! That's going to be a big cookie jar in Cookies Monster Land!

Does anyone go to this place? I'm thinking about stopping in before the crowds, ie: kids, show up.

Doesn't the fact that no one's posted in this thread in over two years answer that question for you? :lmao:

But seriously, I wouldn't waste my time. There's only one credit and I've heard from many people that the park doesn't pull the best crowds.

If you get there at opening, you can easily get in a couple rides on the coaster with little wait.
