Can’t wait to try Universal Orlando’s new multi-million dollar attraction. If you’ve already experienced Skull Island:Reign of Kong, then place your review in our comment box.
One of the first travel experts to ride was Sun Travel Editor Lisa Minot who says “the quality of the 3D footage is simply the best I’ve seen on a ride”.
Guests are transported into King Kong’s mysterious world with an expedition to Skull Island on a 40ft long, 17-ton vehicle.
The vehicle, which operates on a trackless ride system, takes them deeper into the ominous island, where they find themselves in the midst of a brutal struggle between beasts of unimaginable size and ferocity.
Someone or something has to save the day – my bet is on King Kong!
Universal Orlando’s fifth on-site hotel, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, has also opened. The 1,000-room Caribbean-themed hideaway features the destination’s largest resort-style pool with a water slide, cabanas and a fire pit.
The pool is surrounded by two sand beaches, a picturesque waterfall and a lush lagoon which will take guests to Universal Orlando’s theme parks and CityWalk via water taxi. The hotel also has a selection of dining experiences.
