Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has resumed its Sesame Street Safari of Fun every Saturday and Sunday in October, modified for health and safety with limited capacity.

The Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends are included in the park admission and feature physically distant trick-or-treating, an open-air Halloween show for families, and new character experiences.

Children can dress up in their Halloween costumes to enjoy traditional trick-or-treating that is safe with physical distancing. Candy stations will be spread out throughout the park’s spacious, open play area where ambassadors wearing gloves and protective masks will distribute candy in a contact-free manner. As an additional safety measure, guests who participate in trick-or-treating will be asked to purchase a new reusable bag to prevent contact between individuals.

After collecting their candy, families can enjoy physically distant photo opportunities with Sesame Street friends like Big Bird, Oscar and Grover. New experiences include Cookie Decorating with Cookie Monster, featuring physically distanced photo opportunities and new measures to keep the cookie decorating safe and fun, including single-party tables with ample spacing and enhanced cleaning procedures. Also included in the lineup is The Count’s Not-Too-Spooky Howl-O-Ween Radio Show, a new Halloween show playing at the Sunny Day Theater with physically distant seating.

For a limited time, guests can buy a Busch Gardens 2021 Fun Card and get the rest of 2020 free or upgrade to an Annual Pass starting as low as $11.50 per month with no down payment. Annual Pass Members receive 12 months of visits, including benefits such as free parking, up to six free guest tickets, Pass Member VIP Ride Nights, and up to 50 percent savings on merchandise, photo prints, Quick Queue, and more. The Fun Card gives park-goers unlimited access to the park for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year and all of 2021, but does not include the additional pass benefits.
