Skull Island Reign of Kong Ride at Universal Studios

If this is not your first time visiting Orlando Florida you may have had the opportunity to ride “Kongfrontation” the old King Kong inspired ride over at Universal’s theme parks. Being that this ride was opened back in 1990 it was one of the “go-to” rides when visiting the New York section of Universal Studios Theme Park.
It was a sad day for us locals when we found out about the closing of the popular Kongfrontation ride back in 2002. Fortunately, now after so many years in the making we are excited to hear that Universal has brought back our beloved Kong and this time in a bigger, more massive adventure!

The new ride called Skull Island Reign of Kong, located at Island of Adventure in between Jurassic Park and Toon Lagoon, has just open its doors this summer 2016 in Orlando, FL.

It had been 7 years since Universal Studios opened a new ride at its Island of Adventures Park. It is awesome news that finally after three years in the making Skull Island Reign of Kong has been completed and opened its doors to the public.

The adventure takes place in Skull Island where researchers are looking for evidence that the Mega Primatus and Gigantapithicus primate species are still alive. In the story Gigantapithecus primates are small compared to Kong measuring 10 feet and weighing about 1,100 pounds, imagine the size of King Kong who measures approximately 25-30 feet tall!!!

Get ready to scream when boarding your expedition vehicle in this 3D ride where you will face Dinosaurs and everything else that is coming your way with digital and physical effects!

I hear you will be greeted by an enormous stone carved Kong head where you will walk through and really get into the theme as you see human skulls and steam coming from the walls!!! Scary isn’t it? Yet I can’t wait to see it for myself.

If you thought you had seen it all, beware Orlando, FL constantly has bigger and greater adventures that will make you and the kids want to come back over and over again!

You definitely will want to add the Skull Island Reign of Kong Ride to your “Things to do this summer
in Orlando List!”
