Universal unveils new attraction ‘Skull Island: Reign of Kong’

ORLANDO, FL (WAFB) - Universal Orlando Resort in Florida unveiled their newest attraction, "Skull Island: Reign of Kong" Thursday.

The new attraction brings the King Kong legend to life where guests are transported to a mysterious world where their mission is to uncover unknown creatures with the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading the expedition. Guests brave ancient ruins and board a 40-foot long expedition vehicle to navigate the dangerous terrain.

The vehicle operates on a trackless ride system and takes guests deep into the ominous island, where they find themselves amidst a struggle between ferocious beasts.

Then of course, Kong appears. He's nearly three stories tall and you can feel his breath and sense his emotions. Is he friend or foe?
