Universal Orlando reveals more details on their Reign of Kong attraction

We may not get to experience KONG: SKULL ISLAND until early 2017, but Universal Orlando wants to bring the King Kong experience to guests this summer! Coming to Universal Studios in Florida, Skull Island: Reign of Kong aims to bring the next generation of the King Kong legend to life. While not affiliated with the upcoming SKULL ISLAND film, we have some details on what you can experience with the latest ride. Read on!

Universal Orlando on Reign of Kong:

The adventure begins as you set out to explore an island rife with prehistoric creatures of unknown origin – and the legend of a beast still undiscovered. You find yourself at a campsite of the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading your adventure.

Once beyond camp, the menacing terrain shows signs of a native presence; beating drums draw you toward an ancient temple. Moving deeper into the ruins reveals a lost shrine – and proof you are not alone. You ignore warnings to turn back.

You board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will take you deeper into the island. Mysterious sounds pierce the air and you hear chanting. And then – you confront an enormous temple wall, complete with carvings and images that seem to pay homage to something you cannot quite comprehend. The temple’s massive wooden doors slowly open, revealing a labyrinth of caves.

Inside the caves, you meet your expedition leader – and suddenly find yourself in the midst of a raging struggle between creatures of incomprehensible size and ferocity. Then, as those creatures turn on you, there is an even more enormous, earth-pounding presence – bigger, closer and more overwhelming than you can possibly imagine. It is Kong. But is he friend or foe?

I don't know about you, but I am a HUGE theme park addict! Of course, it helps that I live in Orlando, Florida, but I'm usually first in line when a new attraction opens at Universal or Disney. Having worked for the former, I may be a little bit biased as far as which rides I prefer. Either way, it sounds like Reign of Kong is going to rock some serious faces later this year!
