Oscar’s Wacky Taxi roller coaster coming to Sesame Place in 2018
Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA will be getting its first ever wooden-steel hybrid roller coaster in 2018 called Oscar’s Wacky Taxi.
The new roller coaster will feature a first drop of 40 feet, traveling over 1,200 feet of track with exciting twists, turns, and plenty of airtime hills — sure to delight even the grouchiest of riders. A 40” rider height requirement (with a supervising companion) or 46” height requirement for single riders will make this the perfect first coaster for many park guests.
“Oscar’s Wacky Taxi™ will bring a whole new level of excitement to Sesame Place in 2018,” said Bob Caruso, park president. “We’re constantly looking for ways to enhance our guest experience, and our first wooden roller coaster is an exciting and thrilling addition to the park.”
Oscar’s Wacky Taxi™ will join Super Grover’s Vapor Trail® as the second roller coaster at the park. Super Grover’s Vapor Trail, which opened in 1998 as the park’s first mechanical ride, is celebrating its 20th birthday in 2018.
