Running through Feb. 14, this new drive-thru experience will allow guests to drive under SeaWorld’s Skytower lights and through tunnels while enjoying the Sesame Street Parade of Lights – which features everyone’s favorite furry monsters dancing to a lively soundtrack.

“This is an exciting new way for families to experience SeaWorld’s Sesame Street Party Parade and an incredible winter wonderland of lights from the safety of their own cars,” said Marilyn Hannes, park president. “As we continue to promote our enhanced health and safety protocols, we are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity so our guests can enjoy SeaWorld like never before.”

After passing through the entrance, guests will travel through a winter wonderland of lights lined with Sesame Street friends physically distanced on parade floats, with music playing along the way. The excitement continues as guests drive under the illuminated Skytower and through two different tunnels of lights before cruising through the Sesame Street Village.

Seasonal snacks will be available to enjoy in the car through limited-contact purchasing, including SeaWorld’s signature hot chocolate and cotton candy. Guests can also purchase event souvenir packages that include a Sesame Street character plush, superhero character capes, and souvenir cups.

While face masks aren’t required throughout the drive-thru experience, they are required at transaction points (admission, merchandise, and culinary) and when interacting with SeaWorld Ambassadors.

Advance purchase of date- and time-specific tickets are required and start at $49.99 per vehicle. Annual Pass Members receive 50% off tickets, plus save 50% on souvenirs and up to 20% on snacks and drinks. Fun Card holders get 25% off tickets.
