Universal Orlando's 'Project Rumble"

For the past few months, many rumors have popped up that Universal Stuiods Florida is going to add a coaster to the park, much like Universal Stuidos Japan did with Hollywood Dream.

Well, IOACentral just broke the news that Universal Orlando has filed permits with Orlando stating that Maurer Sohne will be developing the ride system for "project rumble." I believe Screamscape had reported that earlier at some point.

Regardless, how exciting that they're adding a coaster to the park? Purists will hate it, but I think it's a grand idea. It's weird that Maurer Sohne is doing the ride, but then again they've come up with some rather interesting rides in the past few years, so I guess they deserve the chance to prove themselves.
