So I bought discount tickets on Groupon for this event as well as discount game card tickets, so I don't feel terrible about not enjoying it. Most of the activities were outside, it was windy and cold, the staff tried to make the best of it, but even they seemed like it was a lost cause. We missed the parade because we went inside the Cookie Monster cafe to eat, and it was empty, but the food was expensive and mediocre, as it usually is at Sesame Place. Again, the staff looked like they would rather be somewhere else...so did we... It was not a very furry Christmas for us! Beautiful lights, though...

Went with my 4 years old daughter since it is in our way from NY to Virginia so though of let us give it a try.
Stayed in spring hill suites just cross the road so only 3 minutes walking i was just there, got seasonal tickets for $21 for 2 visit which i consider good deal. Water rides are all of during winter but we jumped on more than 8 rides although was crowded during friday 27th and sat 28th. Attended two shows in the theater and my daughter who never been that excited about sesame characters felt in love with them. The icing on the cake was for the great smart musical street show started at 16.00, half an hour of music, fun and dancing. I am a lady with a veal but couldn't stop dancing too! We returned the second day only to attend the street show :-))) so much fun for kids under 7.

We took the kids to Sesame Place 2 summers ago and they had a blast, there wasn't a ride we didn't jump on twice.

We were in the area this December, and decided to surprise them again.

Obviously the water rides weren't running in the cold weather, but there were plenty of rides and shows that kept up us running and having fun (yes the adults too) for about 6 hours.

Whether or not your kid watches Sesame Street is irrelevant, this theme park is catered to kids, the rides are all made for 2 years and over.

This is definitely a place I would drive 3 hours again to.

Let me first say that this was a rip off. First of all, you have to pay $17 to park. Hardly any rides for my grandaughter to ride. Rides lasted only about 1 or 2 minutes. Prices for food were ridiculous. Daughter got tickets thru Groupo for $16. each. I have no idea the regular price. Maybe it's better in the summer, but for the time they are open for Christmas Holidays, SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!

Visited Friday night 4 to 8.
Park was very clean
Parking expensive but convenient
Staff EVERYWHERE and very helpful
Outdoor heaters a plus
Beautiful lights
Dinner character buffet WORTH IT!!
........personal time with characters and an amazing Santa!
........wish the food was hotter though.
Almost no lines for shows and rides. :)
Characters were all throughout park.
Games are expensive at $5 each
........buy $35 game card for $20 day before you go
Parade finished the night off perfectly!
........sit under Sesame engine during parade
........that's where it "snows" and kids can dance "in" parade.
Traffic was congested leaving as expected
