Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Nick Cannon knows the way! The entertainer took two of his kids, Golden and Powerful, to Sesame Place near San Diego, California, this past weekend. The children’s mother, Brittany Bell, also came along for the trip.
“Yesterday was all the way up on the highest frequency,” Nick told his social media fans on Monday (Apr. 11). “Childhood Goals,” the talk show host exclaimed. “Finally figured out ‘How to get to Sesame Street,’ Cannon told his social media fans. “Everyone @sesameplaceca was so friendly, loving, and caring! Big Vibes!”
Sesame Place is a new attraction created by Sea World Parks and Entertainment. The company responsible for Sea World overhauled the 17 acres of land that formerly housed Aquatica San Diego. What used to be a waterpark is now the imagined world of Sesame Street brought to life. Big Bird and Elmo are two of many characters visitors can see while enjoying the theme park. Sesame Place also has 18 rides, which include 11 water rides, for visitors to love.
The goal of Sesame Place is to be inclusive. Every ride provides enough information for parents and kids to determine if the experience will be right for them. There are also “quiet rooms” for those who need a break while exploring the various adventures offered in the theme park.
“Walking down Sesame Street, the show comes to life here,” Marc Swanson, CEO of SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, told the press. “You see that right when you walk in, you see the laundry mat, the 123 stoop, Mr. Hooper’s Store — it’s like you’re in the middle of the show,” the CEO shared.
Jim Lake, Sesame Place San Diego park president, also commented on the new theme park. “It provides that inclusive environment so everyone could come here and have a good time,” the president said. “I grew up watching Sesame Street and when I came in here I felt … all these memories come back because it really kind of mirrors what you would see on the Sesame Street show.”
Sesame Place is located at 2052 Entertainment Circle in Chula Vista, California. Learn more about the theme park here!
