The Pennsylvania park’s largest renovation to date, Cookie’s Monster Land opened earlier this year at Sesame Place.The new-look land features five rides, a new three-storey net climb, a soft play area and more – all dedicated to Sesame Street’s big blue cookie-munching friend.
The themed area’s feature ride is Captain Cookie’s High C’s Adventure (Zamperla Regatta), offering passengers a chance to set sail on the rolling waves of the ocean. On Oscar’s Rotten Rockets (custom-themed Zamperla Flying Tigers) families can join Oscar the Grouch and his best pal Slimey as they blast off on a space mission. Guests can cruise up, down,and around on the Honker Dinger Derby (Tivoli Enterprises Orbiter, formerly featured at Busch Gardens Tampa as Sand Storm), while the Flying Cookie Jars (Zamperla Balloon Race) spin 40ft (12m) in the air for a monster’s-eye view of the park. Families can also move and groove across the dance floor in spinning teacups on Monster Mix-Up (also by Zamperla).
In addition to the rides, young guests are welcome to visit the brand-new Monster Clubhouse, and its three-storey-high soft play and climbing area. The Monster Clubhouse is an original design between SEA, the architect, and the net provider. Meanwhile at Cookie’s Sometimes Anytime Snack families can refuel with healthy grab-and-go meals (if they wish) or a big fat cookie or Cookie Monster cupcake (now we’re talking!) Photo opportunities are available at the “1-2-3 Smile with Me!” location.
