I have a feeling a great many people will be making (or changing) their Summer 2016 trip plans after hearing about today’s announcement of the return of King Kong to Universal Orlando Resort! The new attraction, called “Skull Island: Reign of Kong,” will be at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. It’s said to be an intense, all-new adventure brought to life in a dramatically themed environment.
“Skull Island: Reign of Kong” will feature Kong himself, of course, but along your journey you’ll begin by being transported into a wild world complete with an ancient hostile-inhabited temple, a dangerous jungle that is filled with amazing prehistoric creatures and a foreboding underworld of caves — each of which have terrors of their own. It sounds like a great story, and coupled with the fact that Peter Jackson has been working closely with the team on it, I’m sure it will be an incredible attraction.
We’ll have more information when it becomes available.
