Universal Orlando has released new video and images of the upcoming King Kong attraction that will certainly make his fans excited.

The Skull Island: Reign of Kong attraction coming to Islands of Adventure this summer will take you through a 1930s expedition on Skull Island featuring encounters with prehistoric creatures such as dinosaurs, but the main event is of course King Kong himself. Universal Orlando has also officially confirmed that the “three-story beast” will be a fully animated figure.

Universal Orlando’s blog has the first look of the enormous King Kong animatronic from the attraction. Mike West from Universal Creative takes you on a video tour of the attraction, describing how it will be like facing King Kong on the ride.

Additionally, pictures of the giant beast were also revealed.

Here is Universal Orlando describing the attraction:

As the gargantuan beasts fight for dominance, you will just fight to survive. Skull Island: Reign of Kong – A multi-sensory, multi-dimensional new ride for your life.

Over the weekend, Universal’s official Twitter feed included this sneak peek clip of Kong, so there has definitely been some recent rumblings going on at the attraction which is set to open soon.

    Universal is kicking Disney’Store azz in terms of the number and quality of new attractions. Disney takes forever to launch anything and they are using the same technology from decades ago. Seems like Universal has something new and better every year.

      Well, let’s see…
      2010-2020 Orlando
      Forbidden Journey

      Jimmy Fallon (why am I including this?)
      7DMT (Some don’t like it, but I think it achieved it’s purpose as best it could)
      Avatar Na’vi River Journey
      Avatar Flight of Passage
      Toy Story Slinky Coaster
      Star Wars Battle Escape attraction

      That’s 6-6, however Universal’s headliners are already passed, while Disney’s have yet to come.
