Next at Universal Orlando: King Kong?

King Kong at Universal Orlando

The announcement of Legendary Entertainment’s movie based on King Kong’s Skull Island birthplace has fueled speculation about a like attraction at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure.

In true Universal fashion, mum’s the word although bloggers such as Robert Niles of have been speculating about plans for months. Construction is already underway on the site in question, which runs from Toon Lagoon to the Jurassic Park River Adventure.

Universal has plans to market, co-finance, and distribute Legendary Entertainment’s films for five years. The 2013 deal mentions the expansion of Legendary Entertainment’s properties in its theme parks.

According to Niles, the announcement of the Skull Island film was made at Comic-Con in San Diego.

It wouldn’t be the first iteration at Universal for King Kong, Niles says.

If you noted that we wrote about Kong “returning” to Universal Orlando earlier in this post, the “Kongfrontation” attraction ran from the opening of Universal Studios Florida in 1990 until 2002, when it closed to make way for Revenge of the Mummy. A dark ride with an animatronic Kong, the ride was based on the original King Kong Encounter at Universal Studios Hollywood, which featured a 30-foot-tall animatronic Kong designed by Disney Legend Bob Gurr. After Hollywood’s Kong encounter burned during the 2008 backlot fire, the Hollywood park replaced it with the current King Kong 360/3-D on its Studio Tour attraction.

Rumors will continue, of course, until Universal pundits finally break their silence.

    In the great design of things you’ll get an A for effort. Where you actually confused everybody was on the facts. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more correct in this article. Having said that, let me say to you just what exactly did work. The authoring is actually pretty convincing and this is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, despite the fact that I can easily notice a leaps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you seem to unite your points which help to make the actual conclusion. For right now I will yield to your point however trust in the future you actually link the dots better.

  7. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  8. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
