VIDEO – Universal Orlando releases first photos and videos of Kong from Skull Island: Reign of Kong

Universal Orlando Resort has finally revealed just a tiny bit of what Kong will look like when he makes his debut in the new Skull Island: Reign of Kong attraction at Universal Orlando Resort.

Kong will stand 18 feet wide and will be featured inside the attraction in both digital and live-action forms.

Just how close will you get to Kong during the attraction?  According to Universal, “so close they’ll feel his breath sweep across their skin and his thunderous roar reverberate through every bone in their body.”

The attraction is currently undergoing rigorous testing and should begin soft openings soon at Islands of Adventure.

Check out the video above and be sure to watch all of the way to the end to see a glimpse of Kong himself.

Mike West of Universal Creative mentions in the above video that “This is his world, and you’re at his mercy.”
