Since we last checked in at Project 340 in Islands of Adventure, what looks to be the supports for a temple facade has gone up, and a smaller portion of building has been erected in front of the large show building. This smaller structure will most likely house sections of the indoor queue, leading up to the load area deeper inside. Rumors from this forum thread point to the queue being an underground temple theme. Compare pictures from today’s update below to the last update and you can see this entire offshoot was freshly added within the last few weeks. See all the construction update images below.
In Skull Island movie news, the film’s release has been pushed back from November 4, 2016, to March 10, 2017. It’s also getting the new title of Kong: Skull Island, (in case you weren’t sure which Skull Island it’s going to be about). J.K. Simmons has been added to the cast, hot off the heals of the critically acclaimed Whiplash. He’ll co-star beside Tom Hiddleston in the King Kong movie Legendary is calling a“new, distinct timeline” within the iconic beast’s canon. In other words, it’s going to be a reboot and maybe take place in a different time period besides the 1930’s, perhaps even modern day? That could be interesting.
Construction Update Photos:
I leave you with a few snapshots of the former site of NASCAR Cafe in City Walk. This closed recently and is rumored to be the future site of another NBC Sports Arena sports bar, (or some type of sports bar,) with large screens for viewing events.
That’s all for this Kongstruction update. View the previous update.
