Sesame Place Images of Modern America – An Interview with Guy Hutchinson and Chris Mercaldo – Theme Park University Radio

Sesame Place Images of Modern AmericaI have well over 100 theme park books in my collection, but none on Sesame Place. When I heard that a new book was coming out, I immediately reached out to the authors for an interview.

“Sesame Place Images of Modern America” is a fantastic photo history that chronicles 35 years of Sesame Place, which is located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.

Considering Sesame Place is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2015, “Sesame Place Images of Modern America” couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

In the latest episode of Theme Park University Radio, I interviewed Guy Hutchinson and Chris Mercaldo, authors of the new Sesame Place book and talk about the history of park as well, as well as learn some valuable insights. For example, we discuss  several attractions that were strikingly similar to ones that opened at EPCOT Center.

We cover just about everything on how the park evolved from groundbreaking water rides to unrivaled entertainment offerings. Sesame Place truly is an amazing park with a lot of history that thankfully has been preserved through this book.
