Just in time for summer vacation Sesame Place is debuting a brand new section to the Pennsylvania theme park, Sesame Street Neighborhood and it’s as magically immersive as it sounds.

The new interactive attractions include Hooper’s Store, the 123 Stoop, Abby Cadabby’s Garden and Big Bird’s Nest, as well as new photo opportunities including one with Mr. Snuffleupagus and his best pal Big Bird in Abby’s Paradise Theater and Cookie Monster and his sidekick Gonger.

There is also a new live show, Our Street Is Sesame Street, featuring Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Big Bird which has several showtimes daily.

“The new Sesame Street Neighborhood allows children and families to have a closer connection with the Sesame Street characters they love, while helping the Workshop sustain its mission to help kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder,” said Scott Chambers, Senior Vice President/General Manager, North America Media and Licensing, Sesame Workshop in a statement.

The theme park has also rolled out several new amenities over the past few months in an effort to make Sesame Place more inclusive. These additions include toddler toilets, two quiet rooms to provide relief from sensory stimulation and a Family Care Center where moms can nurse or warm bottles.
