Sea World is a marine mammal park on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. A Sesame Street-themed section of the park, Sesame Street Beach, opened in September 2007.[1]

Sesame Street Beach has a stage area called "Big Bird's Theatre". A live stage show, Bert and Ernie's Island Holiday, is performed several times a day. The show features walk-around versions of Bert and Ernie, Big Bird, Zoe, Grover, Cookie Monster and Elmo.

The area's Sesame Street theming was removed in 2011 and remodeled as a generic beach theme park named "Beach Break Bay." [citation needed]

Rides include:

  • Big Bird Bounce
  • Cookie Monster Cup Carousel
  • Elmo's Sea Subs
  • Ernie's Big Dive
  • Grover's Flight School
  • Oscar's Sweep the Beach
  • Zoe's Sub Splash

Sea World is the first theme park in Australia to have Sesame Street themed attractions; the area replaced the Cartoon Network Beach.[2] As of 2015, there are currently no theme parks that host Sesame Street themed attractions.
