Kongstruction Update: Facade Work Continues and Something Taking Shape on the Ground

Alicia Stella 0 Comments

Work never seems to let up on the facade for Skull Island: Reign of Kong at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. I was able to grab some photos on my recent visit this week and it’s looking just as amazing as ever. There seems to be something being constructed on the ground near the left-most side of the area. Not sure if it’s going to stay there or be moved into place later. Check it out and let me know what you think it is. This will be just a small photo update since my last big update with video. If you haven’t yet, please check out the video from my last update as it explains some of the concept art by comparing it to the construction site. Check out today’s photos below!

The view beside the Toon Lagoon walls. Seems like they're building a wall or structure on the left?

Perhaps it could be something to block Dudley Do Right from the riders or maybe this'll be moved into place after constructed

Still no wall on this side of queue building. The other sides have walls in some form already

Still no work being done on this bit on far right of everything. Will be seen from Jurassic Park so probably going to be getting some type of facade/rockwork
