Kongstruction Update: Rockwork About to Begin

Alicia Stella 0 Comments

In checking in on the construction progress at the site of Project 340 in Islands of Adventure, it looks like rockwork for the facade is about to be applied. The steel skeleton has been wrapped in some sort of cloth and then a wire mesh that resembles a tough chicken-wire, to maintain its shape. In addition to the huge facade, a two-dimensional cutout of what looks like rough rocks has been added behind the gate to block the view of top of the show building. This flat piece is being wrapped in weather-proof materials in preparation for its forthcoming aesthetic covering.

As you get closer you get a real sense of scale, keeping in mind this is actually set pretty far back from the path

You can see that the building starts on the left and can be seen stretching all the way to the right of the photo. Coming upon this area will be breathtaking once it is complete
