Kong is coming: Universal reveals new details about Skull Island

ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal Orlando Resort has revealed more details and a new image of its highly anticipated attraction, Skull Island: Reign of Kong, which promises to transport guests to “an island shrouded in mystery and legend.”

Upon its debut this summer at Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure, Skull Island will feature a powerful storyline, a stunning 3D experience and innovative technology, all of which will make it one of the longest Universal ride experiences ever created.

The adventure will begin with guests setting out to explore an island rife with prehistoric creatures of unknown origin. They’ll find themselves at a campsite of the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading their adventure. Once beyond the camp, beating drums will draw them toward an ancient temple.

Guests will then board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will take them deeper into the island, all the while hearing mysterious sounds and chanting. Upon arrival at an enormous temple wall adorned with carvings and images, wooden doors will open to reveal a labyrinth of caves. Inside the caves, guests will meet their expedition leader and before long, they’ll be confronted with an “enormous, earth-pounding presence – bigger, closer and more overwhelming than you can possibly imagine.”

More details about ‘Skull Island: Reign of Kong” will be revealed soon. For more information visit universalorlando.com/ReignofKong.
