Skull Island Reign of Kong Great Wall Night

Get ready to be transported to an island shrouded in mystery and legend. Universal Orlando has revealed details of the story guests will experience on Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

When it opens this summer at Islands of Adventure, Reign of Kong will bring the next generation of the King Kong legend to life. A detailed storyline, a 3D experience, innovative technology – and the unexpected – will pull you into one of Universal Orlando’s biggest adventures yet. This is a multi-dimensional experience all wrapped into what will be one of the longest Universal ride experiences ever created.

The Making of Skull Island: Reign of Kong — The Story

The adventure begins as you set out to explore an island rife with prehistoric creatures of unknown origin – and the legend of a beast still undiscovered. You find yourself at a campsite of the Eighth Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading your adventure.

Once beyond camp, the terrain shows signs of a native presence; beating drums draw you toward an ancient temple. Moving deeper into the ruins reveals a lost shrine – and proof you are not alone. You ignore warnings to turn back.

You board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will take you deeper into the island. Mysterious sounds pierce the air and you hear chanting. And then you confront an enormous temple wall, complete with carvings and images that seem to pay homage to something you cannot quite comprehend. The temple’s massive wooden doors slowly open, revealing a labyrinth of caves.

Inside the caves, you meet your expedition leader – and suddenly find yourself in the midst of a raging struggle between creatures of enormous size and ferocity. Then, as those creatures turn on you, there is an even more enormous, earth-pounding presence – bigger, closer and more overwhelming than you can possibly imagine. It is Kong. But is he friend or foe?
