“The Eighth Wonder of the World” rises from ashes this summer! Was the fire blessing in disguise? While I will always have a special place in my heart for Universal Studios Hollywood’s old King Kong attraction, the new one is sounding quite extraordinary. It was revealed today that the official theme title is “KING KONG 360 3-D” with plans to unveil the new ride this summer. You’ll find the teaser and first details below.
“In the new attraction, guests will don special glasses as they enter a darkened soundstage aboard the Studio Tour trams and will be transported– via the magic of Surround Digital 3D projection –deep into the dark heart of the world of Skull Island. They’ll survive a close encounter with a swarm of monstrous bats, only to be confronted by the terrifying presence of Kong himself. Suddenly, an enormous, ravenous 35′ tall dinosaur will challenge Kong and guests will feel their trams jolt, roll and shudder as they find themselves caught in the middle of a ferocious showdown between the great ape and the giant lizard. The action will immerse guests in the battle between the two colossal predators!”
