Sesame Place is a theme park located in Chula Vista, California, USA. The site of the park previously operated as Aquatica San Diego. After the 2020 season, the existing attractions were incorporated into a new combined water and theme park.


In 1997, White Water Canyon water park opened. The project was plagued with financial problems during construction and fell in to bankruptcy a year after opening. The park was purchased by Cedar Fair for $11.5 million in December 1999, who reopened it as Knott's Soak City.[1] In November 2012, it was purchased by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, who refurbished the park and opened it in May 2013 as Aquatica.[2]

In October 2019, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment announced that their second Sesame Place theme park would open in 2021 on the site of Aquatica San Diego. The new park will be a combined water and theme park.[3]

In September 2021, it was announced that the park would be opening in 2022.[4]

Sesame Place opened on March 26, 2022.[5][6]
