Infatti sembra proprio che King Kong stia arrivando agli universal studios in florida


The Rumor Queue: Jurassic Park arch comes down as Universal Orlando makes way for their next attraction


http://attractionsmagazine.com/wp-conte ... 60x720.jpg




Astute guests might have noticed a recent change in Universal’s Islands of Adventure: the Jurassic Park entry arch closest to Toon Lagoon is being removed. Just behind it, as seen through the trees, is a new large construction site.

You might speculate that this could be confirmation of the big expansion that’s been rumored for years for Jurassic Park. With the new “Jurassic World” movie on the way, this would make sense. The only issue with this guess is the archway. Why would Universal Creative decide to relocate or remove it if the construction was intended for Jurassic Park? The arch’s new location is said to be close to Thunder Falls restaurant, thus setting new boundaries for the Jurassic Park section of the park. But for what?


Since the Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood was updated with a new and modernized version of King Kong (with the aid of Weta Digital and Peter Jackson), Universal Creative has been supposedly gauging guest interest of a full-fledged land for the iconic movie monster.

Much like Jaws, the former Kongfrontation attraction still garners disappointment amongst guests when they learn of the ride’s removal. Those familiar with Universal’s history may also know of the significance of Kong: it was the first attraction to successfully come together when the resort only existed on paper.

Universal Creative’s affinity for Kong is no secret, and this construction is rumored to be tied directly to the ape’s return. Strong rumors say that between Thunder Falls and Toon Lagoon will rest “Skull Island”.


The expansion is said to consist of one major attraction. Incorporating the technology seen in Universal Hollywood’s tram tour, guests will walk through the vestiges of an ancient temple. From there, they will be ushered onto ride vehicles that are rumored to be heavy duty truck-like vehicles linked together in a tram-like manner.

Rumors suggest guests will be accompanied by a tour guide at the front of the vehicle. The ride will start out as just a “normal” tour of the island, with the guide allaying guest’s fears by showing them a vast wall designed to keep Kong and the island’s beastly inhabitants away.

As they always do, things will go awry and guests will be thrown into several harrowing encounters between Kong and the island’s menagerie of monsters. This will be accomplished with practical effects, ride vehicle movements and large 3D domes.


The first signs of construction came earlier this year when the Jurassic Park T-Rex photo opportunity was relocated. Permits have since been filed for Project 340 and construction walls have been erected around the alleged space for the new land.

With Diagon Alley now open and the thrust of its construction at an end, Universal is rumored to be focusing its efforts on two new projects. One being Skull Island and the other is said to be a major overhaul of Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone, although the former is said to be further along than the latter as of now.

For the foreseeable future, NBC Universal intends to open at least one new attraction at Universal Orlando and Hollywood each year. This declaration came directly from President and CEO of NBC Universal, Steve Burke in an analyst conference held last Fall.


When we reached out to Universal Orlando for word on the Jurassic Park arch removal, we were told, “We’re not commenting on this at this time.” We expect the company to make a formal announcement of what its plans are for this construction site before the year’s end.

Disclaimer: The thoughts expressed here are not purported as fact and should be viewed as rumor until officially confirmed or denied by the companies mentioned.

hai presente il tour negli universal studios hollywood, quando il tram entra nel capannone e ci sono gli schermi (con visualizzazione in 3d) a 260 ° di kong che combatte contro i t rex visti nel film del 2006, quando questi attaccano il tram ? Bè, uguale, ma non nci sarà il giro di tutto il set, ma da quanto ho capito, solo la parte del tram

Si praticamente quella agli universal di hollywood è un po' come una versione base dell'immersive tunnel di cinecittà, però fa parte di un tour di un'ora degli studios. Credo che ad Orlando metteranno proprio l'immersive tunnel modello cinecittà.

Ma ne vogliamo parlare dell'aver semidistrutto una bellissima area?

Non dubito che alla fine verrà meglio di prima, però King Kong con i dinosauri non ci sta proprio.
Non è che invece la ride è a tema dinosauri e fino ad ora si è parlato di King Kong solo al livello di paragone con Hollywood?

Hanno rimosso il portale di ingresso a "Jurassic Park" e si dice che lo stiano per riposizionare più avanti. Skull Islands sarà probabilmente una nuova area, tra Toon Lagoon e Jurassic Park.

Secondo me la ride a Orlando sarà molto più complessa, con vetture tipo il tram tour di Hollywood con parti di dark ride tipo la parte iniziale di Jurassic Park e parti di immersive tunnel.

Non saprei, sono mesi se non anni che gira la voce che faranno skull island lì al parco. In realtà nel film king kong combatte contro dei dinosauri, quindi il collegamento ci potrebbe anche stare. Certo, il tutto non sarebbe più un area tematica di jurassic park ma una più generica "area dei dinosauri e di king kong".

E intanto i rumor continuano, ma non si sa ancora nulla su cosa ci sarà nel 2015 agli universal


The Rumor Queue: Legendary Pictures and Universal – What this spells for Skull Island



Since our last online column, a new piece of information has been officially unveiled by Universal Pictures. It furthers the rumor of King Kong returning to Universal Orlando.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, Universal Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures, announced a movie in development called “Skull Island”, a prequel to King Kong which will delve into the origins of the ape and the island’s other inhabitants. Joe Cornish, whose filmography includes “Attack the Block” and “The Adventures of Tintin”, is in talks to direct the film, which is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2016.

Universal has a penchant for opening its attractions in the summer, which can empirically be proven by looking at the opening dates of their existing rides. So can we expect an opening of a new Skull Island attractions between Jurassic Park and Toon Lagoon by Summer 2016?

While it might seem like a paradigm shift for Universal Orlando, given the expedited construction of Transformers and Diagon Alley, two years of construction would be in line with most attractions built entirely from scratch.

If this is the case, what will be Universal’s tentpole attraction for 2015? Universal’s new initiative is IP synergy, as can be seen by the sharing of licensed properties between Hollywood and Orlando’s parks, including the seasonal event Halloween Horror Nights.

The “Dracula Untold” Haunted House marks the first theme park tie-in of Legendary’s work since a five-year contract was signed between Legendary Entertainment and Universal. A betting owl would surmise that future Halloween Horror Nights event will include at least one tie-in maze to promote films produced by Legendary Pictures.

It should also be noted that “Pacific Rim 2″ is slated to be distributed by Universal Pictures on April 7, 2017. Speculation has risen that an attraction based on the IP is in nascent talks.

While Summer 2016 would be ideal, it’d make 2015 a noticeably “quiet” year for the resort. So where does this leave Universal?

Rumors have mentioned a “top secret” project for 2015, although we remain in the dark as to what this surreptitious project might entail.

Exciting things are assuredly in store for the resort and expect to know more before the year is out.

Confermo, a lato di Jurassik Park fervono i lavori. La zona è stata recintata a lato del punto ristoro e si possono vedere gli scavi, allungando un po' il collo.
