Since it’s my first visit back to the parks after the official announcement for Skull Island: Reign of Kong was made last week, I decided to get some video in addition to my usual construction photographs. All of the scaffolding has now shifted to the right, leaving a breathtaking view of the giant temple gate. They’ve also started work on the attraction entrance near the pathway. From the concept art we can see it will be an arch with Kong’s head shaped into it. It’s very exciting to see everything taking shape, and to have concept art to compare it to! See all the photos below and check out the video here as well!

A look inside the gate, where the ride vehicle will enter the building
Visitors will walk under this archway to get in line for the ride
A different view of the archway, with queue building behind it
The arch is pretty far from the building, and very close to the pathway
Work continues on the great wall facade, to the right of the temple gate
Looks like brickwork will continue all the way to here, on top of the queue building
The view from Toon Lagoon
Looks like gate hinges are being installed to hold the giant doors that swing open as your car approaches
Leaving the area
I leave you with a picture of some swimming duckies near Camp Jurassic. Awww.
