Amazing Mumford's Water Maze

Amazing  Mumford's Water Maze was a play element that opened with the park in 1980.

The attraction was a maze of plastic tunnels and netting with water that would spray over the area, soaking kids as the crawled through the net area.

The attraction lasted at the park into the 2000s. I was eventually removed. It's former footprint was behind Sesame Food Factory and in front of Sesame Beach. Today the area is occupied by a walkway and a planter between Elmo's Cloud Chaser and Grover's World Twirl.

  1. I wish there was a better picture of this. I remember spending what felt like hours in here. When I saw it, I had no idea Sesame Park had any water elements and I remember my mind being blown. I remember it being much more elaborate then that picture seems. It was one of the highlights of the park for me.
