SESAME PLACE UNVEILS 'TWIDDLEBUG LAND' EXPANSION

 New Play Attraction Features Huge Wave Pool
 and Other Larger-Than-Life Elements
 LANGHORNE, Pa., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sesame Place officially opened its new "Twiddlebug Land" expansion today with a "Moving Day Parade" that welcomed the Twiddlebugs to their new second home at the family-oriented, "Sesame Street"-themed play park near Philadelphia.
 Twiddlebug Land is themed around the tiny creatures that live in the flower box outside Ernie and Bert's window on the ever-popular "Sesame Street" television show. Twiddlebugs are natural recyclers who collect lost and discarded items and create new uses for them in their own special world.
 During the parade, hundreds of Philadelphia-area children carried larger-than-life "sculptures" they had crafted, like Twiddlebugs, from recycled materials. Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Harold Carmichael served as grand marshal.
 Adults and children alike will feel as tiny as Twiddlebugs once they enter Twiddlebug Land. One of the most eye-catching elements is a 16- foot-tall color billboard cutout of Ernie's head towering above Twiddlebug Land as if he were peering into his window box. Sesame Place guests can walk among trees that appear to be plants in l0-foot-high flower pots or be sprinkled by a 14-foot-tall watering can when they meander through the winding "Amazing Hide & Seed Garden" maze.
 Children can enjoy frolicking in "Teeny Tiny Tidal Waves," the 10,000-square-foot wave pool that resembles a puddle created by leaks springing from Ernie's old garden hose, and featuring a 7-foot-tall water nozzle. Even more fun awaits at "Silly Sand Slides" and at "Mix- N-Match Twiddle Tracks," where youngsters pedal-propel themselves on a very special energy-efficient railroad.
 Sesame Place is a 30-minute drive north of Philadelphia, l5 minutes southwest of Trenton, N.J., an hour and one half from New York City and two hours from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. The park is open daily through Sept. 7. For more information, call 215-752-7070.
 Sesame Place, one of the Anheuser-Busch Theme Parks, was developed in cooperation with Children's Television Workshop (CTW), a leading communications corporation and creator of the internationally acclaimed TV show "Sesame Street." Other Anheuser-Busch Theme Parks include Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fla., and Williamsburg, Va.; Water Country USA, also in Williamsburg; Sea World marine life parks in Orlando, Fla., San Diego, Calif., San Antonio, Texas, and Aurora, Ohio; Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, Fla.; and Adventure Island in Tampa.
