Gabe and Garrett take the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tram Tour ride, follow them as they experience King Kong 360 3D and watch a battle between King Kong and tyrannosaurus rex dinosaurs. King Kong saves us from certain death! Shot in HD 1080p, year 2013.
King Kong is set to make its return to the Universal Orlando Resort. The great ape, star of movies from the 1933 Fay Wray original to the 2005 Peter Jackson blockbuster, once made a home at Universal Studios Florida, before the Kongfrontation ride closed in 2002 to make way for the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster. When Kong returns, it will be to Universal Orlando’s other theme park, Islands of Adventure.
We’ve known for some time that Universal Creative designers have been kicking around ideas for the Return of the Kong. As a result, theme park fans for months have been spreading rumors about a new Kong ride in one of the parks or the other. But ideas are worthless until they become reality. Lots of “blue sky” attraction ideas never make it to development. When parks start filing for permits with local authorities and start hiring contractors to develop the plans, that is when an idea become a project worth reporting as fact. That is when parks are putting real money behind an idea.
