Sesame Street's new Pennsylvania theme park Sesame Place is now the world's first autism-certified theme park after introducing new measures to accommodate people with the disorder.
The new space has quiet rooms, giving each guest an escape from high-sensory stimulation, as well as a low-sensory parade to give guests an enjoyable experience without any sort of physical contact. Any visitor with hearing sensitivity will receive noise-canceling headphones to be as comfortable as possible while still having fun. While theme parks and other large gatherings of people can sometimes be stressful, the park will now offer an equal experience for everyone.
With multiple attractions, games, parades and other fun experiences, the new Sesame Place was made to give everyone the opportunity to spend time with family while being immersed in a theme park setting.
