SAN DIEGO, CA, (June 30, 2023) – Sesame Place® San Diego, the only theme park on the West Coast based entirely on the award-winning show Sesame Street, today opened The Count’s Splash Castle, to the public. The Count’s Splash Castle is an all-new, multi-level water-play attraction perfect for all park guests, even the littlest splashers. Sesame Place San Diego opened the attraction following a grand opening event for park guests to celebrate the new attraction. The ceremony included speaking remarks from Jim Lake, Sesame Place Park President and Mayor John McCann, City of Chula Vista, plus an appearance by Count von Count and friendly bats, festive décor, ribbon cannons, Sesame Street friends, and more.
The all-new Count’s Splash Castle is a multi-level, interactive water-play attraction that features 111 play elements, including three giant tipping buckets that dump over 1,300 gallons of water combined. Built with the whole family in mind from the littlest splashers to big kids and adults, the structure will feature four exciting water slides, plus soakers, flow pipes, hose jets, spray jets, water shooters, water curtains, tipping troughs, spinning, and sliding buckets, and much more! The all-new Count’s Splash Castle replaces the former splash area and is double the size of the previous attraction, making this attraction bigger and splashier than ever before!
In addition to this exciting addition, park guests can enjoy whirling rides, splashy water slides, exciting shows, parades, the interactive Sesame Street Neighborhood, and visits with everyone’s favorite furry friends.
