Do you allow pets in the park?

Service Animals are welcome at Sesame Place. Service Animals are limited to dogs and miniature horses that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times, unless such leash or harness interferes with the service the animal is providing, or the handler is unable to use a leash or harness due to his/her disability. The animal also must be housebroken.

Service animals are the responsibility of the owner and cannot be left unattended. Guests are responsible for the clean-up and for controlling their service animal’s behavior. If, at any time, your service animal’s behavior becomes a threat to the safety and well-being of other park guests or animals, you will be asked to board the animal at our kennel or leave the premises. For more information about Service Animals, please refer to our Accessibility Guide.

ATTRACTIONS

Many of our attractions may be enjoyed together as a family. Certain attractions do not allow hand held infants and children must be accompanied by a supervising companion. All height and safety requirements are posted on each individual ride page.

What is a handheld infant?

A baby or toddler who is unable to take three unassisted steps to the ride or attraction independently and cannot maintain independent seated postural control.

For water attractions, all riders must maintain independent postural control, as well as fit into a US Coast Guard Type II or III life vest.

What is a Supervising Companion?

A supervising companion is someone who meets all of the requirements to ride by themselves, is 14 years of age or older and exhibits the maturity of someone 14 years of age or older.

What assistance is available for guests with disabilities?

Sesame Place is committed to being accessible to guests with disabilities and to providing a safe and enjoyable environment to all guests. We have two programs in place to assist guests with disabilities. Our Ride Accessibility Program matches the individual abilities of our guests to the requirements of each ride. We also have our Special Access Program to assist guests in enjoying attractions throughout the park as some queue lines are not accessible to mobility-impaired guests. Guests with physical limitations can register for either program at the Welcome Center. Click here for full program details or download our Accessibility Guide.

What if my family gets separated?

  1. Make sure children carry a form of identification listing their name and parent’s phone number.  We provide wristbands to write this information at The Welcome Center.
  2. Set up a meeting spot, in case you get separated.
  3. Carry a picture of your child.
  4. Point out park employees.  Teach your child to find a park employee with a name tag and ask for help if you get separated.
  5. Lost Parents is located next to Cookie’s Café, near The Sunny Day Carousel.  Lost child announcements are made each time a child is brought to Lost Parents. Personal in park pages are not permitted.

I am a single parent with two children, how can I ride certain attractions?

Sesame Place offers a Child Swap. This is when an adult wants to ride with their children but the ride does not allow them all to ride at the same time. Once at the front of line, the adult can ride with one child while the other waits at the front of the line. Once the ride is complete, the children switch spots and the adult will ride with the other child without having to wait in line again.

Team members may not ride with a child and cannot take responsibility for a child participating in a child swap.  A child swap must be done by a member of the party to allow the children to ride.

Can I bring my own stroller or wagon to the park?

Yes. Strollers are also available for rent for $18.

Lifejackets

Lifejackets are provided at each water attraction which one is required to be worn.

Guests are also welcome to bring their own lifejacket as long as it is an approved US Coast Guard Type II or III life vest.  To check to see if your lifejacket is approved please visit The Welcome Center or ask any lifeguard supervisor.
