    Meh. Less that I expected. Looks like a crappy imitation of Indiana Jones at DLR.

      Lol. Gotta love the Disney fanatics. This is 100x anything Disney has ever done.

      1. Rob

        Oh, you’ve already experienced the ride? Please, tell us all about it!

          The queu alone is an experience. The ride blends physicals sets and animitronics seamlessly with screens. Must ride

            Now that I’ve been on it, no, it’s not 100x anything Disney has done. It’s not even 100x anything Universal has done.

        Not a Disney fanatic at all. Just stating my opinion. Also, saying this is 100x anything Disney has ever done is either blatant bias or grotesque ignorance.

      Geez. Snort much pixie dust? LOL

    My guess is, they will not follow the new Disney trend of eracing – in this case, casting white actors as some of the natives.

    “As far as highlights from the attraction go, I’m not about to copy entire articles over to Inside the Magic (that’s just bad form…and plagiarism)”
    Someone’s a little sensitive lately… 😉

    As for “Who is that guy?”, I’m guessing a lot of the, quote, “Skull Island” ride was made to synergize next year’s Legendary Pictures movie being shot at the same time to “link-universe” with Godzilla ’14 sequels, so they took Peter Jackson’s earlier scary mud-covered natives and turned them up to 11. (Given that most of the “Kong: Skull Island” movie seems to be taken from abandoned Peter Jackson script ideas in the first place.)
    Being Universal, it seems to be a hybrid between the ’05 movie they do own, and the upcoming Legendary movie they were hired to promote. That’s the problem of making attractions around movies we don’t know yet (and Disney lost a lot of would-be attraction ideas that way).

    Not a fan of things jumping out at you. This is not Halloween Horror Night. And thats why I don’t go to Horror Nights.

      I agree 100%…I wish they had a separate queue for people who don’t care to have mild heart attacks by people jumping out at them.

    I’m wondering how they’re going to get mobility impaired folk into that ride vehicle.

      Peggy, the vehicle floor is level with the loading platform and has a seat that can fold up to make room for a wheelchair or transfer.

  6. Really wanted to tell you I am lucky I came onto your web page!.

  7. Hey Guys I just got off Skull Island Reign of Kong and let me just start with the que. The que was a little bit disappointing because there was only one scare actor and not as many anamotronics as I thought there were going to be. Bit once I got on the ride it beyond blew my expectations away. The ride was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I usually don’t like rides with screens but this one was amazing and perfectly used. And OMG the Kong anamotronic was fantastic! I hope you found this comment helpful!

  8. Thanks for your post! Even with the mixed reviews, I’m still excited to check this out myself!
