Universal Orlando Announces King Kong Ride [VIDEO]


King Kong first appeared on screens in New York City in 1933, but next summer, he’ll be in Florida, headlining a new thrill ride at Universal Orlando. “Skull Island: Reign of Kong” will open in the summer of 2016 at Islands of Adventure.

Universal executives announced this week that guests participating in the “intense adventure” will board expedition trucks and forge through jungles, temple ruins and past prehistoric beasts before they come face to face with the oversized gorilla.

It will be one of Universal’s longest rides and will have a 34-inch height requirement. The attraction will be partially indoors and partially outdoors and will involve flaming cauldrons and caves. The new attraction will be nestled in between Toon Lagoon and Jurassic Park.
