Kongstruction Update: Facade Looking Amazing as Construction Walls Start Closing In

Alicia Stella 4 Comments

Kongstruction is looking amazing today in Islands of Adventure! The creepy faces are coming along nicely, the brick color is looking beautiful, and the temple facade is growing across the right side of the structure. The construction walls have begun encroaching on the pathway, having moved out about to 10 to 20 feet in some places. The food stand is gone now, considering there isn’t enough room to accommodate it on the path anymore. The walls have probably been moved out to make way for construction of the outdoor scene that will take place in front of the structure. Supposedly the ride vehicle will exit the structure after load and venture into an outdoor scene before re-entering the building through the enormous temple gate. See all the pictures from today below!

    I assume there will be torches and fire all over the temple. Very excited ^_^ theyre not building it fast enough 🙂

      I’m not so sure we’ll be seeing fire and torches on the facade. I think the story will have this take place after the local peoples have long gone, so we can safely take a tour of the area without worrying about the indigenous people attacking. They were the ones that lit the torches. Instead I would guess we’ll see the temple overgrown with vines or other plants. And I have heard the area will be pumped full of jungle-like mist. As far as fire goes, that will come into play INSIDE the building, rather than on the outside.

        Ok, Im going to go think about that and geek out. You must work very hard to do this, kudos and thanks 🙂 Wonderful blog, I like your site the most! Personable and straight to the point. Keep it up, for all of us who cant see the parks as often as we wish 🙂

          Thanks! Glad you like it. I wish I had the time to cover more parks, but I love Universal so I visit just about every week. May as well share my experience with others. Feel free to share the blog with your friends! And thanks again!
