Kongstruction Update: WALLS ARE DOWN at Skull Island: Reign of Kong

Alicia Stella 3 Comments

The construction walls are down at Skull Island: Reign of Kong at Universal’s Islands of Adventure! The wait has been long, but soon we’ll be able to get our first rides on this new immersive attraction. We should hopefully expect to see soft opens within the week. It really could be any day now (or any hour even). Plus the outdoor gift shop stand, Base Camp Provisions, is open and selling Kong merchandise. Check out the video and photos below to see how the area looks now with the work walls down and some of the items you can get at the new gift shop and food stand. Stay tuned for more information as it happens. This should hopefully be our last update video before softs start and we’ll post as soon as they start letting guests on the ride!


Our Final Construction Update!
