Cookie’s Monster Land Monster Mix-Up


Sesame Place celebrates big blue monster


The Pennsylvania park’s largest renovation to date, Cookie’s Monster Land opened earlier this year at Sesame Place and features five rides, a new three-storey net climb, a soft play area and more – all dedicated to Sesame Street’s big blue cookie-munching friend.


Honker Dinger Derby, Oscar’s Rotten Rockets and Flying Cookie Jars


The new land’s feature ride is Captain Cookie’s High C’s Adventure (Zamperla Regatta), offering passengers a chance to set sail on the rolling waves of the ocean. On Oscar’s Rotten Rockets (custom-themed Zamperla Flying Tigers) families can join Oscar the Grouch and his best pal Slimey as they blast off on a space mission. Guests can cruise up, down,and around on the Honker Dinger Derby (Tivoli Enterprises Orbiter, formerly featured at Busch Gardens Tampa as Sand Storm), while the Flying Cookie Jars (Zamperla Balloon Race) spin 40ft (12m) in the air for a monster’s-eye view of the park. Families can also move and groove across the dance floor in spinning teacups on Monster Mix-Up (also by Zamperla).


In addition to the rides, young guests are welcome to visit the brand-new Monster Clubhouse, and its three-storey-high soft play and climbing area. The Monster Clubhouse is an original design between SEA, the architect, and the net provider. Meanwhile at Cookie’s Sometimes Anytime Snack families can refuel with healthy grab-and-go meals (if they wish) or a big fat cookie or Cookie Monster cupcake (now we’re talking!) Photo opportunities are available at the “1-2-3 Smile with Me!” location. This month, Sesame Place is hosting The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular. It all sounds like horrifyingly-good fun!


sesameplace.com Caption Lagoon building unique


coaster Lagoon, Farmington, Utah, has unveiled plans to debut what it promises will be the most exciting rollercoaster in its history. According to park spokesperson Julie Freed, “We have named it Cannibal, because in our collective mind it will eat other rollercoasters in their tracks!” Designed in-house, Cannibal has been under construction for over two years and is set to open for the 2015 season at a cost of $22 million. The 2,735ft-long (833m) steel coaster is a one-of-a kind and is primarily being manufactured and constructed locally.


The ride will become the tallest attraction on the park with a height of 208ft (63.4 m). This state-of-the-art coaster will thrill riders with its unique elements such as a 116° freefall into an underground tunnel. The 12- passenger vehicles will travel up to 70mph (112km/h) through three inversions. An additional exclusive element will be announced later.
