Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is set to open a new area themed around popular children's TV show Sesame Street.

The area will replace the existing Land of the Dragons zone in 2010, and will feature a "kiddie" rollercoaster. The Florida park is following in the footsteps of Busch Gardens Williamsburg, which opened its Sesame Street Forest of Fun earlier this year.

Like the Williamsburg park, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is also expected to install the "4D" show "Sesame Street presents Lights, Camera, Imagination!"

The park has yet to comment on the rumors, but Tampa Bay Online reports that city constructions officials are reviewing the plans.

You can keep up to date with the latest confirmed and rumored opening dates for new attractions over at Theme Park Tourist's "New Attraction Watch" section.



I can't believe that there are so many new rides being announced I thought parks would be forced to cut costs but it is good news for the avid theme park goer that a lot of them are not!!!!
Thanks TPT for the news!!!!
