Fall Fun at the Count's Halloween #Spooktacular at Sesame Place

Now that we're in the midst of my favorite time of year, my family has been keeping busy enjoying lots of fall activities like apple picking, pumpkin decorating, and of course a visit to Sesame Place for the Count's Halloween Spooktacular.
Sesame Place and its resident characters are all decked out for Halloween, with pumpkins and hay bales everywhere amongst the little kid-friendly rides and attractions.
Located just outside of Philadelphia in Langhorne, PA, Sesame Place is an easy drive from New Jersey, New York, and other mid-Atlantic states.  We spent last Friday celebrating Zoe's birthday, as the park was open for a bonus day (it's now just open on weekends through October).
Soren enjoyed the not-so-scary Halloween atmosphere, which included trick-or-treating throughout the park.  As parents, we were happy that the treats were actually quite healthy, like pretzels, mini bananas and juice.
We went on the usual rides and attractions, like the Nets course and Ernie's bouncy bed
but also enjoyed the seasonal attractions like the Count's Un-Haunted Castle maze, filled with not-so-spooky, interactive things like wonky mirrors
and buttons that kids can push to make sound effects.  There's even a talking pumpkin, via video screen.
We also ventured twice into Abby Cadaby's Magical Halloween Maze, where we tried to find Abby's wand.
Soren was most interested in the dry ice smoke effects.
and the trick-or-treat station, with mini bananas.
As you can see above, the park is filled with lots of great fall photo opportunities.

I enjoyed seeing the pumpkins on display, painted by Season Pass members as well as the general public.  How cute are the ones themed to Sesame Street characters?
Before we left for the day, we got to see Bert and Ernie dressed as their favorite birds, the pigeon and rubber ducky, respectively.
Sesame Place is a great destination not just in summer, but in fall. They're open weekends through the end of October, and maybe we'll see you there one of them!
Disclosure: As an ambassador for Sesame Place, I received a season pass for myself and my family.

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Place?

(Sorry. I had to.)

I want to go there. The kids would go nuts!
