Sesame Place San Diego Rides & Attractions

Sesame Place San Diego
Sesame Place San Diego's rides and attractions are fantastic and cute, although they're mostly for kids. From an adorable carousel to a relaxing flight at Elmo's Rockin' Rockets to a variety of water slides, small and large, this theme park has so much to offer to an energetic child. 

For the adults, there are some slightly more thrilling water rides, like Oscar's Rotten Rafts, Honker Dinger Dash, and Cookie Monster's Mixer. For those looking to relax a bit, there's always Big Bird's Rambling River or Big Bird's Beach, where you can pull up a chair and lounge all afternoon!
