King Kong and Skull Island are having a pretty big resurgence right now, what with both a new movie and a new ride bearing the island’s name. And now we have the very first look at the King Kong you’ll come face to face with at Universal Orlando. Spoiler alert: it’s a giant gorilla.
We all love King Kong, but one of things that’s great about him is he brings on a great set of other monsters with him. On the big screen, he’s setting up for a showdown with Godzilla, and at Universal Studios Orlando things are getting even crazier.
King Kong has long been a staple of Universal Studios theme parks. From Kongfrontation to his appearances on the Studio Tour tram ride, the Eighth Wonder of the World has always terrorized park attendees. But now, things are getting much, much bigger.
If you happen to be visiting the Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure in Summer 2016, you can take a trip to Skull Island. And the 1930s.
