  • USH King Kong 360 3-D To Soft Open July 1st...He's A-PEatriot Big On Fireworks!

    Source: Screamscape

    On July 1st the battle will begin between Kong and flesh eating dynosaurs that consider your tram a food bar. Also, mark this coming Saturday on your calender for the debut of the brand new special effects stage show.

      In all likelihood...especially considering that he went out of his way to do a YouTube promotional video.

        King Kong 360-3D has been soft opened since Friday (6/25) and officially opens this Thursday (7/1). The new Special Effects Stage is already open and is running multiple shows a day.

        Peter Jackson is also heavily featured in the attraction so his presence there at the grand opening wouldn't be surprising.

          This past weekend, Universal did a "technical rehearsal" (soft opening), a lot people gave it rave reviews. From screens being bigger then anything seen before to wind, water & other effects. Universal knows how to make a movie come to life...

          Here's video from this past weekend of the full attraction...

            What an honor it would be to meet Jackson! He's a bastion of talent and interesting knowledge. Universal Hollywood is steadly improving at a fast rate...first rate.

              Amazing!!! Thanx, JMora. The jungle, the dinos and Kong all look real. This ought to be trippy in 3-D, and with one's tram shaking as Kong and the Dynos bang against it.

                  No problem :} The original version will be missed but it is 2010, and wow, the attraction blew me away, the 3D was even better then Avatar.

                    The Transformers: The Ride will indeed use 3D HD technology, even more powerful then this Kong Kong 3D attraction. With a stunning price tag of what it takes to make a Transformers movie, over $120 million, not only will it be physically a ride (housed in the world largest sound stage on Earth). Universal will be using some state of the art animatronics that the Transformers will actually transformer before our very eyes and battle it out while guests our caught in the middle and trying to get away.

                    I'm sure it's going to top Universal's 'Amazing Adventures of Spiderman' ride, and the recent 'Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey' for sure. I love the Transformers, and Universal never disappoints when it comes to making attractions like this. I for one can't wait for this to open, summer 2012.

                        Looks stunning, but I will sure as heck miss my banana breathe live ape.

                        I also can't say I'm too impress with hearing the hyrdolics and the blocking of the Bionic Woman bridge. :-\

                          PS:
                          Someone pointed out, there's a Disney in-side joke in this attraction? When the imaginary 5th car of the tram, as it gets pulled by the T-Rex. A little kid seems to be wearing Mickey Mouse ears hat, and it flies off the kids head just when the tram goes over the cliff. Any truth to that? The tram moves more then the Earthquake attraction (pretty intense), and there's so much detail happening around you, it's a little detail that goes unnoticed, if it is true because I didn't catch it. My eyes were glued to the T-Rex's =)

                          It wouldn't surprise me though, cuz Universal has cracked an inside joke on Disney before with Jurassic Park: The Ride, where the ears hat can be seen floating near the boat where you see the first Dilophosaurus.

                            I imagine Transformers will become the most advanced and fun ride at USH.

                            It's a new era. The demise of the original set is extremely sad. That uttered, the new attraction appears to be even better. :ap:

                            The Transformer battle scenes will no doubt be louder than hell.

                            That much is a given. Let's hope that the water from Jurasic Park doesn't find it's way into the Transformers ride...everything would freeze up and rust.

                            I think they threw what was left of the live ape "under the bridge".

                            So that's where I lost my Mickey hat.

                              The hissing sound you hear isn't from the motion platform it's from the wind/smell/water effects and the experience is such a sensory overload you don't even notice them.
