We just completed a rite of passage for families of small children in the metro New York / Philly area -- our first trip to Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pa.
The verdict: not bad at all.
Sure the food isn't much to write home about, the park appears to be run by the local high school student council and there was no shortage of park patrons with bad tattoos and questionably-executed 'Kate' hair.
BUT The Toddler seemed to love every minute of it and the Mr. and I couldn't have had a better time watching him.
A few of our 2 year-old's favorites:
- Sunny Day Carousel
- Mix 'n Match Twiddle Tracks
- Ernie's Waterworks (located near sandy 'beaches' that make a perfect home base)
- The Count's Splash Castle (this brand new attraction seemed a little too intense for our guy but there's always next year).
- Big Bird's Rambling River (may be a better choice midweek when wait times are likely to be shorter).
- Sesame Place is a park probably best experienced by preschoolers
- The park is no substitute for larger amusement parks nearby but it makes a nice day trip for younger families
- 10 feet by 10 feet cabana's near The Count's Splash Castle can be rented for the day. They're not cheap at $129.99 (plus tax) for the day but it might be worthwhile for larger families or if you're traveling with a few other families. The cabana includes bottled water, comfy furniture, a ceiling fan, mini fridge and 6 souvenir beach towels
