Skull Island: Reign of Kong Officially Opens at Universal Orlando

Skull Island: Reign of Kong was officially opened at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando

With a flourish of flames, Skull Island: Reign of Kong was officially opened at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando.

Members of the 8th Wonder Expedition Company took to the stage to theatrically announce the attraction was now open to all to experience.

On Skull Island: Reign of Kong, guests are ushered into the attraction, where they are on a mission to discover creatures of unknown origin with that 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading the excursion. After braving ancient temple ruins and encountering hostile natives, they board a massive 40-foot-long, 17-ton expedition vehicle to navigate the increasingly foreboding terrain.

This specially designed expedition vehicle operates on a completely trackless ride system, and takes guests deeper into the ominous island where they meet the nearly three-story tall Kong.

If you couldn’t make the grand opening of the attraction, no worries. Universal has a video recap for you:
