The wait is finally over! Last Wednesday (13th July) an eager crowd gathered to witness the official opening of Skull Island: Reign of Kong. Fiery explosions and appearances from some of the island’s hostile natives signalled that the new attraction was ready to be explored. Guests were invited to board a huge expedition bus and embark on a journey through Skull Island. What they didn’t know, was that they would encounter a collection of “unimaginable creatures” and horrifying predators along the way, before the ultimate grand finale; a stand-off with the legendary King Kong! Check out the amazing opening day photos and launch video below to see if you’ve got what it takes to face the beast…
Climb on board an enormous expedition bus that can hold up to 72 passengers. You’ll be well equipped to tackle the rocky terrain as this mammoth vehicle has 45-inch wheels and weighs an incredible 17 tons!
Taking control of the wheel is one of seven quirky tour guides who all know the island well. This means that each time you ride, you’ll be able to enjoy a completely unique experience. Beware, it looks as though someone may have already gone missing!
As you walk through the attraction and get closer to the ride make sure you take in everything surrounding you from the crates concealing mysterious creatures to the blazing fire and unfriendly faces.
There are plenty of grisly creatures lurking in the darkness on the hunt for prey. Look out for huge 6-legged arachnids, the petrifying Vastatosaurus Rex and the unfriendly locals who don’t take well to intruders on their island!
Your adventure leads to an exciting finale where you’ll come face to face with Kong and feel his “thunderous roar reverberate through every bone in your body”.
The grand opening went off with a bang! Are you ready to face the legend?
