Since my last update the scaffolding has come down around the entry arch showing off a beautifully sculpted Kong face. It hasn’t been painted yet, but definitely bares a striking resemblance to the big guy as seen in the concept art. In front of the giant temple gate we’re getting our first glimpses of the shape of the outdoor portion of the ride path. A short rock wall wrapping around the path has sprung up, as well as structural I beams being placed below the track path in preparation for concrete being poured. The ride is being rumored as being “trackless,” so what we’re seeing now is the pathway being constructed where the vehicle will travel outside before entering the show building. See the new video as well as some images below and stay tuned for more updates!

A look from above, and how the ride path may turn out. The vehicle will start by exiting the building after load and then traveling around the loop near the walkway before re-entering through the temple gates.
