Considering getting tickets to see Sesame Street Live Elmo’s Super Heroes at Madison Square Garden? Our writer made the trek from Long Island to Manhattan through piles of snow to see if this destination trip to the city was worth it.
After more than two feet of snow from Winter Storm Nemo, we were deciding if it was worth it to take our son to the Sesame Street Live Elmo’s Super Heroes show in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden. We went to the LIRR train station and stood there for 30 minutes until the MTA decided to cancel all the trains. We ended up driving which ended up as a better decision because we knew we knew we’d be guaranteed to get home after the show.
We were glad we made the effort to go to the city to see this show. My son was initially scared when he saw Elmo close up, but once the performers started to act he was non stop dancing and having a blast. Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their friends are on a quest to put the “Super” back in Super Grover. From Elmo saving the days as a superhero to Oscar teaching kids about hygiene, it was an educational show for parents and children. While singing and dancing, children learned fun lessons on healthy habits, exercise, rest and nutritious food while helping Super Grover.
The two hour show included a 15 minute intermission. After the show, like everyone else, we got a toy and a balloon. We then went to Times Square where we saw more characters on the street. We ate cupcakes, drank coffee (he had warm chocolate milk) and then called it a day. There was a smile on my son’s face the entire evening and that made the trip worth it.
Parents can also choose to get the Sunny Seat packages which include VIP seats and a photo opportunity with two Sesame Street Live friends. Sunny Seat orders will include a special photo pass for entry into the photo opportunity. Each adult and child (age 1 and up) in a group must have a Sunny Seat show ticket and photo pass to be admitted. These photo opportunities last 20 minutes and start 60 minutes prior to the performance, the exception being in most Play Zone markets where they then start 90 minutes prior to the performance. Play Zone is a play area for kids that is open prior to the show starting. Please bring your own camera. This plan costs $166, but use this special code MOMMY to receive 25% off your tickets at the MSG website HERE.
