Sesame Place Eruowood (Sesame Place EW) is children's amusement park located in Kahmbrel, Banoi. The park features attraction mostly for young children and their families. There is an area dedicated to large thrill rides for children and adults 48" and taller.

History

Sesame Place Eruowood first opened in 1989 with a replica of Sesame Street, a 150-foot tall Ferris wheel, a Muppet themed carousel, a giant play area dubbed the "Big Bird Bridge System", and a small water park.

In 2000, Big Kiddie Land opened with large scale rides and attractions in an attempt to cater to older children who have outgrown the more juvenille attractions at the park.
