MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP >> Sesame Place, the only theme park in the U.S. based entirely on the award-winning show, Sesame Street and the first theme park in the world to become a Certified Autism Center, has unveiled plans for its season-long 40th Birthday celebration, including a new family-friendly ride, Big Bird’s Tour Bus; new food location, ABC Eats; and a new play area for kids, Slimey’s Square.

Guests can join the park in celebrating its 40th Birthday all season long! The park will be decorated with bright balloons and garland, an enormous, inflatable birthday cake, new character photo ops and oversized candles. Its extraordinary Neighborhood Birthday Party Parade features festive birthday floats, colorful birthday decor, sparkly cupcakes, and an original, toe-tapping birthday song. An interactive birthday stop will have everyone dancing and clapping along with their favorite Sesame Street friends as they are asked to “put their party hats on and blow out the candles.”
