Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic (titled Sesame Street Presents Lights Camera Imagination! 4-D at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Europe parks, and Sesame Street Film Festival 4-D at Busch Gardens Africa) is a 4D film theme park attraction located at Universal Studios Japan, SeaWorld San Antonio, formally at SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Movie Park Germany. The attraction, which was made to run at Universal Studios Japan, was later acquired by SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment to run at their Busch Gardens and SeaWorld theme parks. In addition, Busch Gardens parks also include multiple other Sesame Street themed attractions, as part of their Sesame Street Forest of Fun/Sesame Street Safari of Fun park areas. The attraction contains 4-D effects to go along with the film which include spraying water, bursts of air, leg ticklers and fans. This Movie Park Germany attraction is officially opened on July 25, 2013.

On August 5, 2010, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced that Pirates 4D would return to the Timbuktu Theater. There will be three showings of the Sesame Street 4-D Film Festival film followed by three showings of the Pirates film.[1]


There are multiple differences between the SeaWorld version of the film versus the original Universal version. This is due to the film having been created for Universal Studios Japan, and so, there are changes in the structure of the Busch Gardens and SeaWorld theaters from the Universal Studios one. This resulted in the experience having to be slightly changed as well, most notably re-dubbing from Japanese to English for the American audiences.

In the SeaWorld films, there is no pre-show, and instead, the preshow to the film is merged into the actual film, resulting in the guests having to wait through the first seven minutes until putting on the glasses before the 3-D effects start. Also at the SeaWorld attractions, the postshow with Elmo being interviewed does not play, but a commercial for SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment's own Sesame Place park instead plays on the theater screen while guests exit, and brochures for Sesame Place are on display at the theater exit.
