Any behavior deemed inappropriate by Sesame Place may result in ejection from the park without refund.

Segway Policy

Sesame Place is committed to providing guests a safe and enjoyable experience. Because of different pathway configuration and terrain as well as large crowds that include small children and strollers, we regret that we cannot permit the use of two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicles such as Segways. We are pleased to offer other forms of personal transportation, including electric convenience vehicles and standard wheelchairs and we encourage you to contact Guest Services with any question you may have.

Sesame Place does have security procedures in place that may result in slight delays while entering the park. The procedures include:

  • All bags, backpacks, and packages are subject to inspection prior to entering the park.
  • For the safety of our guests, the following items are not permitted in the park: weapons, glass bottles, cans, sharp objects, large hard or soft coolers, and any hazardous items or materials.
  • To expedite entry into the park, leave any unnecessary articles secured in your vehicle.
  • Sesame Place is not responsible for fire, theft, damage or loss of vehicle or articles left within vehicles.<
