The huge facade on the front-side of the building at the site of Project 340 in Islands of Adventure is starting to really resemble the temple gate from the King Kong films as construction continues. In addition to the facade work, walls have started to go up around the indoor queue section near the right side of the structure. See the construction photos from today below to catch up on the progress.
Here’s a comparison of the current structure to a still from the 2005 King Kong film:

Wire mesh added to skeleton, in preparation for preformed wire-frame which should be arriving soon to create underlying rockwork base.

Walls starting to enclose indoor queue area, seen on the left of image
Walkway frame on the right, most likely to become exit path
At City Walk, they replaced the Universal Orlando sign with a new version. The blue looks good, really pops.
That’s all for this Kongstruction update. View the previous update.
