The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular wasn’t too spooky but it sure was TONS of fun!
When my family and I are invited to Sesame Place we know that a fun-filled day is in store. Being that we live in NYC, it’s nice to get away for a day and really feel like we’re on vacation in a (not so) far away place. Sesame Place is our #1 place to spend some good quality fun.
Sesame Place is the nation’s only theme park based entirely on Sesame Street and will be celebrating Halloween for five weekends this fall!Between Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, October 28th, Sesame Place will be transformed into a not‐too‐spooky Halloween haven featuring two themed mazes, a Sesame Street character hayride, three Halloween shows and everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends dressed in their Halloween attire.
They even had several Trick-or-Treat stations set up around the park. It really added a nice touch to the whole experience.
New in 2012 is Ernie’s Rubber Duckie Costume Party ‐ a non‐stop, fun‐filled time, where everyone’s invited to dance their day away! Moving lights and fun, upbeat music will make you feel as if you’ve arrived at a Sesame‐styled disco. Back for its 2nd year is the Neighborhood Street Party Halloween Parade. The entire parade takes on a not‐too‐spooky‐feel from candy corn in Cookie Monster’s cookie Jar to Bert and Ernie dressed as a rubber duckie and a pigeon for Halloween. The last parade stop features “spooktacular” music and performances by the Sesame Street characters and is not to be missed.
During The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular, families came dressed in costume along with their kids! In addition to the park’s Spooktacular‐focused attractions, Sesame Place’s dozen dry rides are also open for guests to enjoy. And if your family is looking for even more Halloween fun, Sesame Place will be hosting special events such as The Count’s Halloween Party, Abby Cadabby’s Fairy Pumpkin Party and our annual Halloween Costume Contest.
