Parque Plaza Sésamo is the Mexican counter-part to Sesame Place, based on Plaza Sésamo. Located in Monterrey, the theme park had its grand opening on October 12, 1995, and operates year round. In addition to roller coasters and other rides, the park features walk-around versions of both the US Muppets and their Plaza Sésamo compatriots.
The park occasionally hosts celebrity events, with soccer stars, mayoral candidates, and other notables making appearances. Character birthdays are celebrated at the park, during "Festividad de personajes".
Sesame Street and Plaza Sésamo stars walk around the park as full-body characters, interacting with guests, posing for photos, and appearing in shows and parades. Abby Cadabby, Abelardo, Aurora, Archibaldo, Beto, Conde Contar, Elmo, Enrique, Lola, Lucas, Pancho, Zoe.
