Kongstruction Update: Rockwork Going Strong and Structure Interior Taking Shape

Alicia Stella 0 Comments

Workers are working at a furious pace at Project 340 in Islands of Adventure, wrapping the facade in beautiful rockwork. Meanwhile the inside of the structure is taking shape while the walls continue to enclose the main show building. There are always dozens of workers on site every day. The temple facade is growing to the right of the gate opening, with large supports being installed and readied for more rockwork continuing to the right on the structure. Check out all of the construction photos below.

All that can be seen behind the new walls are the cinder blocks holding them up. No telling what they're doing here yet.
