Well, I didn't look at the facebook yet, and might need to edit once I do lol, but Sesame Street, in the now Dragon area now. I know back in June was confirmed the following:

What is confirmed at this point are the plans filed with the city June 12th to begin demolition and prep work to add four new buildings and a roller coaster.

So maybe an Elmo coaster? Guess it will be confirmed coming soon, but I know rumor was an annoucement late summer on it. Anyone got more?

Here is more info maybe to confirm it from a news article in June:

Back when Jungala was in the planning stages, there was supposed to be a B&M hyper in "phase two." I haven't heard anything on that in quite a while. I'm certainly not saying that that could be the announcement, but it was a heavy rumor 18 months ago.

Be nice if it was another coaster, but just don't see it with paper work filed already for 4 buildings, coaster, and meet/greet. All points to a certain street. And yes Elmo is red :o)

If it's the same idea, maybe layout IF that is what it is, here is a link to see the Grover one in VA for an idea of what to expect.
