At Sesame Place, kids and adults alike meet and interact with their favorite furry friends—from classic friends such as Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, and Elmo to newer additions such as Abby Cadabby and Murray. Pose for pictures in a life-size re-creation of the TV show’s classic set, soar above the park in the twirling Cloud Chaser ride, or travel to the outer reaches of the solar system during a children’s-size roller coaster ride on Vapor Trail. After experiencing their fill of rides and shows, kids can watch the Neighborhood Street Party Parade, an energetic neighborhood block party that takes place on the iconic Sesame Street and features all of their favorite friends.
They say that a family that plays together stays together, especially when they've got each other in the cross-hairs of a laser. At the family entertainment complex of Ultrazone, everybody's inner kid comes out to play in an electric playground teeming with teams of ultraviolet warriors. The sprawling laser tag arena is one of the biggest on the East Coast, sporting multiple levels of battle grounds where visceral action scenarios play out amongst a myriad of obstacles. Rounds are played in multiple gaming formats and are divided by age levels so younger players aren't trounced by birthday parties for Bigfoot. Gun shy attendees can get their kicks popping quarters at Ultrazone's video game arcade.
Kids and parents alike become adventuresome at HappyTymes Family Fun Center with a slew of whimsical rides and rip-roaring games.

After harnessing a reserved sense of accomplishment achieved only after putting one's way through a mini-golf course's myriad challenging obstacles, children can hop on HappyTyme's space train, rumored to be NASA's upcoming replacement for the shuttle. Youngsters may continue to gain useful experience for life's later challenges by tackling the rock wall before practicing a stress-relieving spending spree with their 100 game tokens.
