Universal Orlando to set up new King Kong ride for ’16


ORLANDO, Florida — King Kong first appeared on screens in New York City in 1933, but next summer, he’ll be in Florida, headlining a new thrill ride at Universal Orlando.

��Skull Island: Reign of Kong�� will open in the summer of 2016 at Islands of Adventure.

Universal executives announced this week that guests participating in the ��intense adventure�� will board expedition trucks and forge through jungles, temple ruins and past prehistoric beasts before they come face-to-face with the oversized ape.
