Sesame Street fans will want to head to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay this coming weekend as the all-new, Sesame Street-themed “Safari of Fun” opens on March 27.

This kids’ play land features Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Burt, Ernie, and other Sesame Street characters, available for meet-and-greets and photo ops. Also in the new area are kid-size rides, water fun, shows and other adventures.

Highlights include “Air Grover,” which looks to be a fun-filled a kid’s coaster. “Oscar’s Swamp Stomp” and “Bert & Ernie’s Watering Hole” are sure to cool you off in the upcoming hot months.

“Lights, Camera, Imagination!” is Busch Gardens’ new 4-D film, located in their Timbuktu area. The movie features Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and other Sesame Street characters trying to save the Sesame Street Film Festival.

“Only at Busch Gardens can you meet versions of the Sesame Street characters in unique African-inspired costumes and have experiences with them you can’t find anywhere else,” says Jim Dean, Busch Gardens’ executive vice president and general manager. “With this new addition to our park, Busch Gardens really does have something for everyone. We expect to see many more families come to enjoy all that our park has to offer.”

Families can also share breakfast or lunch with Elmo and friends on select days at an outdoor dining facility in Sesame Street Safari of Fun.
