I knew they were changing the preshow rooms but I hadn't heard anything else. Not sure what exactly they have in mind, but given the time frame, I seriously doubt it'll be extreme enough to really qualify as a new attraction.

I'm now disappointed I didn't ride this now when I was there, just to add to my stupidity of being to tired to go to Geauga Lake for the first time on the midwest trip (at least with that one, some of their best coasters will be on the East Coast trip).
As an Universal AP holder, one of the things that keeps me from riding this thing everytime I'm there is the semi-boring pre-shows. If there was a way to skip some of teh rooms & just ride the train, I would've done it more.
Though this was indeed a sudden closure. I was planning on going there this coming Monday and experiencing "the big one" (no sexual remarks please).
So I guess Charleston Heston is 86'd for Steve Carrell or something?
2009 - Project Rumble - Rumor - (1/14/08) For all the Nay-Sayers out there who always think I’m full of crap, today we have the proof that Project Rumble is indeed a Maurer-Sohne coaster with a screen capture showing off the permit filed by Universal Orlando on 1/11/08 for the “Project Rumble Ride System” to contractor “Mauer Rides GmbH”. (Okay, technically they did misspell Maurer… )
If you click on the link above to Screamscape you can see the document that has been filed.
While you never know what may end up happening (I see projects get cancelled all the time) but as of now this project looks like it's a "go!"
