Busch Gardens Europe Announces Sesame Street Addition for 2009
Published: August 8, 2008 at 2:08 PM
The village will be constructed adjacent to the current England area, thus expanding the current layout and size of the park. Not too surprising this move, considering BEC also operates Sesame Place.
This sounds similar to the "Land of the Dragons" section in Germany (which will not be replaced), but obviously bigger and based on Sesame Street. Will Elmo have an English accent? The press release failed to mention...:) "He he, that tickles mate..."

Some questions this raises in my mind:
Does BGE need another children's section?
...reminds me of Hannah Barbera characters in the old Paramount Parks and Looney Tunes at Six Flags...not sure I like seeing characters outside of WDW. That's just me.
Is this a move to bolster the park's value before a new buyer comes along - putting on a fresh wax before she sells? Could be that this has been in the pipe for some time...
