We live about an hour from Sesame Place, and right now they have their Platinum Pass on sale for $168 per person! This is good at all 11 parks (Seaworld, Busch Gardens, etc). We will be in the Tampa area in the summer, and are considering a quick trip to VA around the holidays this year. So this would really be a great savings for us. But - my kids are 17, 15, and 12. We will NEVER go to Sesame Place. LOL Does anyone know if we have to actually go to SP to activate these passes? Or, if we do have to go there, does everyone from my party need to be present to active? Will they take a photo? My kids would be horrified to have to go. But at half the cost of the SW or BG Platinum pass, it would be worth it.
