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.
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....
Sooooo.... who thought Oscars Wacky Taxi had no air? And what crack are you on?
To be fair, it was hot humid and rainy today but jesus god that coaster is legit. I truly can't get over how much bullsh*t nuts ejector air we got. So good, I'm a huge fan. My first ever GG coaster too.
Totally crazy for a kids/family ride. I went with my sister and my 5 year old (budding enthusiast) nephew. One of his biggest coasters yet and he loved it - we all did. She lives nearby and took him over earlier this summer and he had cold feet, but was determined to ride with me today. She sat in the front with him and me behind them, so I couldn't see his reactions. I was hoping for good air but once we shot out of the tunnel and hit those back to back to back to back pops I was thinking he was probably hating life but once we pulled in and got out he had a huge cheesey grin and said he loved it. He's been a little had to predict as he likes certain coasters (Wild Whizzer, Flitzer) but hates others (Rollies, Runaway Mine Train) so I was especially pleased he enjoyed a little airtime machine. My response to him was "wait til you get a load of El Toro, bud!" He's only three inches away.
You know what else they have thats crazy for a kids ride? Their mini troika thing. Holy f*ck they run that thing hard. We all loved it though.

That ride is pretty intense for a kids park, we just went on the flying machine at BGW and it wasn't nearly as intense and also much shorter. My daughter was not impressed with the BGW one after riding the SP one in June.
