Sesame Place Is Best Enjoyed With Family And Kids. Don't Go Alone Like Me

When visiting Pennsylvania I heard nothing but positive buzz about Sesame Place. I had a day with nothing planned, it was hot out, why not check it out? This wasn't the best idea for me.
Sesame Place is indeed friendly and colorful, but it is a friendly and colorful environment best enjoyed with your family or gaggle of small children. People were giving me weird looks when they realized I wasn't there with kids of my own. I started to feel ashamed, so I began acting like I had kids but lost them.
This was an even worse idea, as soon plenty of good Samaritans were enlisting themselves to help me find my lost children. I knew I would be totally boned if they got park security.
They got park security. Uh-oh. I made up some story about how they ran off in two different directions because they were twins that were always fighting. People kept asking questions.
I started to run out of good fake answers to the earnest questions and was eventually saved by my brother calling me on my cellular phone. I picked up and acted like it was my kids calling me to tell me where to meet them. I booked it out of the park so fast after that. I got in the car, drove away, and never looked back.
If I actually had children to bring to Sesame Place, I would consider going back. But right now I do not see myself giving the park another visit anytime soon. Not really their fault.
Scram? Good idea Oscar, thanks.
