Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is excited to welcome Sesame Street’s Julia to the Safari of Fun. Julia is an autistic four-year-old girl from Sesame Street who enjoys playing with her friends Elmo and Abby Cadabby. To celebrate the addition of Julia and to honour Autism Awareness Month, Busch Gardens will host a sensory friendly showing of “Let’s Play Together,” April 13 & 14 at 10am. After the showing, walk-around Julia will meet with guests who attended the show. Families can also take home free Sesame Street storybooks featuring Julia.
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organisation behind Sesame Street, developed Sesame Street and autism; See Amazing in All Children, with content featuring Julia, to help support families with autism and promote the uniqueness in all children. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay celebrates the unique in all things, from animals to people, things that thrill us and inspire us – which is why having Julia as part of the Sesame Street Safari of Fun at Busch Gardens is so exciting. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is now the second theme park in the country to have Julia as part of the friends of Sesame Street.
