Yup, I'm a platinum pass holder so that's the only reason I'd make a quick stop for a few rides, wouldn't make a special trip out of it either but have some family in the area as well so maybe at some point.

It's an easy stop on the way to Six Flags Great Adventure since it's just a half hour away too.

They take a few paragraphs to set up the emotional stakes, so I've clipped out the real news part of the story. You can read the whole thing here:

https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/07/06/health/sesame-place-autism-certification/index.html

Theme parks, other family destinations accommodate families with autism

...[T]he "cherry on top" is the new designation as a Certified Autism Center, which makes Sesame Place the first theme park in the world to receive that distinction from the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards. To earn the certification, the board requires at least 80% of a park's staff to complete rigorous training on autism sensitivity and awareness.

According to Meredith Tekin, the board's vice president of sales and marketing, "the Certified Autism Center designation is awarded to premier organizations around the globe who have completed rigorous training and meet the highest industry standards, including onsite reviews to make grounds and activities more accommodating as well as staff awareness and sensitivity training." This designation gives parents, families and individuals "peace of mind" and "empowers staff," which improves everyone's experience, she said.

In addition to staff training, Sesame Place has created quiet rooms: small, dimly lit spaces with comfortable armchairs and sensory bead mazes on the walls to provide a break from the stimulation. The park also offers noise-canceling headphones as well as designated "low-sensory zones" along a parade route and in theaters. Guests who may struggle with standing in line or require special assistance boarding a ride can also use a fast pass called Abby's Magic Queue....

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.
