Kong has finally come! Universal Orlando Resort’s newest mega-attraction, Skull Island: Reign of Kong, has now officially opened, with anxious visitors gathering yesterday.
The highly anticipated attraction transports guests deep into a mysterious world, where their mission is to discover creatures of unknown origin.
After braving ancient temple ruins and encountering hostile natives, they board a massive 40-foot-long, 170-tonne expedition vehicle to navigate the terrain.
At the end of the ride, King Kong makes his grand appearance, towering nearly three stories tall.
Following on the heels of Skull Island’s grand opening, Universal Orlando’s fifth on-site hotel, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, will welcome its first guests tomorrow.
The 1,000-room Caribbean-themed hideaway features the destination’s largest resort-style pool with a water slide, cabanas, and a fire pit. The pool is surrounded by two sand beaches, a picturesque waterfall, and a lush lagoon.
