Many openings at theme parks this weekend

April 3, 2009, 12:16 PM · Regional theme and amusement parks are opening across the country this month. In addition, I wanted to draw your attention to three openings this weekend at parks popular with Theme Park Insider readers.

  • The long-awaited return of the Big Thunder Barbecue at Disneyland, now with character dining.

  • A new sea lion and otter show at Sea World San Diego: Sea Lions LIVE. This one includes spoofs of American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.

  • The opening of the new Sesame Street Forest of Fun children's play land at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

    Reader reviews welcomed and encouraged, as always.
