    Sesame Place in Pennsylvania will be announcing a new coaster on September 20th

    The FB page has added a fun little teaser for the announcement date

    Didn't know this place existed… conveniently between Hersheypark and Six Flags Great Adventure!

    The teaser seems to be indicating a Wacky Worm… although a GG family woodie would be more welcome.

    This is that Sesame Street park that costs like $90 to get in if I'm correct. Hence why I didn't stop in for the +1 despite driving right past it leaving New Jersey back in June. Mom stayed at a hotel nearby for work once and said it was terrifying walking in extremely tired at 11 at night to the visual onslaught of colorful Sesame Street characters in the lobby.

    I'm thinking a little wooden coaster themed to Oscar the Grouch but I could be wrong. Actually kind of intrigued to see how this pans out though, always nice seeing a little park get something that puts them on the map.

    Carrot Monster: The Ride. Calling it now.

    Ahh, so there's a hope that Duelling Dragons won't be scrapped after all...

    It's gonna be a Wacky Worm, I'm sure of it.

    I have no evidence to back up what I just said.

    Yeah, that's Gravity Group. Looks solid! I presume it'll be built by Gravitykraft, and will also have Timberliner trains. I think it's more of an out and back version of Roarosaurus.

    I love Gravity Group - Twister is still one of the funnest coasters I've ever done.

    So glad to see another one of these going up! Wooden Warrior is incredible and this looks really similar. The end of the ride actually looks pretty strong for airtime, especially for a family coaster.

    (Coney Island Cinci, Jungle Jack's Landing, and Camden Park, please take note!)

    Yay these are fab,

    I didn't think I'd ever have to go back to Sesame Place mind.
