SeaWorld Entertainment and Sesame Workshop plan to open the nation’s second Sesame Place park in San Diego in spring 2021. The 17-acre theme park will open south of SeaWorld San Diego. The site currently is occupied by Aquatica San Diego, a water park slated to close next year, allowing construction of Sesame Street Place to commence.
SeaWorld and Sesame Street are expanding a partnership that included the opening of a Sesame Street section earlier this year in Orlando. Sesame Workshop’s Steve Youngwood notes the brands share common objectives. “The opening of Sesame Place San Diego will give guests a unique and powerful way to experience Sesame Street, enable us to connect with even more families, and further our educational mission,” says Youngwood.
Sesame Place San Diego will open as a Certified Autism Center (CAC). The first Sesame Place theme park opened nearly 40 years ago outside Philadelphia.
