Welcome to the Sesame Place online press room. This section of our website provides members of the working news media with information about our park, our newest attractions, and current press releases, along with a sampling of the cool stuff we’re doing with “Sesame Place Cares,” our community affairs program. We also feature an extensive image gallery for your convenience. Working members of the media are permitted to download and use the high-resolution images in this gallery. Guests, students and other business entities must submit a request to download and use any images. (Please be sure to credit all photos: Photo contributed by Sesame Place.)
We hope you find this press room helpful. Our communications team is eager to work with you and we invite broadcast media and print journalists to explore Sesame Place at any time. We welcome your story ideas and can offer a few of our own. Please feel free to contact us and let us know how we can work and play together.
For more information or media requests, please contact SPPR@SesamePlace.com or call 215.741.5372.
See you in the park!
