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 leave the premises. For more information about Service Animals, please refer to our Accessibility Guide.

What if I need to leave the park to get something out of my car? Can I get back into the park?

Upon exiting the parking lot, guests who wish to re-enter the park on the day of their visit must have their admission ticket or Season Pass and proceed through bag check areas. Guests will then proceed to turnstiles where the ambassador will validate your admission ticket and allow you re-entry.

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.
  • Lost Parents: Lost parent announcements are made if a child is brought to Guest Services inside the park. Should your family get separated, set up a meeting spot in advance.

All unattended items will be taken to the Welcome Center.

Are Segways permitted in the park?

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 questions you may have.

What is the policy for line-cutting? 

Line cutting is prohibited at all rides, attractions, and shows. Line cutting, for any reason, can result in ejection from the park. No refund will be issued. Sesame Place defines line cutting as:

  • Cutting in front of guests who are already in line or saving a spot in line for another guest.
  • Leaving a line, then attempting to re-enter at the same point. This includes leaving the line to use the bathroom or to place items in a locker. Please make all stops before entering the line.

Some rides required that a child be accompanied by a supervising companion. How is this defined?

A supervising companion is someone who is at least 14 years of age.

What items are not allowed on attractions?

Loose articles, such as hats, glasses, cameras, and bags are not permitted on any of our attractions and should be left with a non-rider or in a locker.

Is a Child Swap program available?

Sesame Place offers a Child Swap program. This program is helpful when one adult wants to ride with more than one child, but the ride does not allow the entire party to ride at the same time. Once at the front of the line, the adult can ride with one child while the other waits with a non-rider. Once the ride is complete, the children switch spots and the adult can ride with the other child without having to wait in line again. Please note that Sesame Place team members may not supervise children or ride with a child as part of the child swap program. A child swap must be done by a member of the party to allow the children to ride.
