Sesame Street Safari of Fun coming to Westfield Brandon Mall in Tampa area


Sunny days, chasing the clouds away, on my way to the mall…okay so it doesn’t exactly have the same ring to it. But on Friday July 13th that’s exactly where Busch Gardens Tampa will be taking Sesame Street as the Safari of Fun goes to the Westfield Brandon shopping Center.


The area will feature Sesame Street characters in their safari outfits, and a huge 1,200 square foot play area complete with animals to climb and play on. The area is located in the newest wing of the mall, located near Gymboree.

The grand opening will happen at 10am on Friday, July 13th when Westfield Brandon opens the brand new wing of the mall. The area will feature animal ambassadors and Sesame Street characters until 11am. Also, there will be giveaways held for the first 250 guests to arrive.

“Busch Gardens’ Sesame Street Safari of Fun was the perfect attraction to bring to life in Westfield Brandon’s new play area,” said Jim Dean, park president of Busch Gardens and Adventure Islands. “Busch Gardens is focused on celebrating, connecting with and caring among families in the community and around the world, which aligns perfectly with one of Westfield Brandon’s key core objectives.”

“Although Westfield Brandon and Busch Gardens each have its own unique offerings, they also have in common a focus on delivering a fantastic family experience,” said Dawn Arvidson, Westfield Brandon’s director of marketing. “Aligning these two iconic brands illustrates to the community a shared commitment to premium family amenities.
