  • BREAKING RUMOR: Kong is returning to Universal Studios Orlando

    So word on the street is that Kong is going to come back to Universal Orlando. Now the shocking part of this rumor is that it is going to replace the recently revamped Disaster. What it looks like is that the new Kong 360 from Hollywood would be installed, with revamped pre-shows.

    Please if anyone else has more information please share.

    It could work. Though if Kong returned to USO, I would want a more thorough attraction like what it used to be. It works so well at USH is because it's a quick drive in, sit, then drive out and compliments the studio tour. As a stand alone attraction I really don't think it will hold up. Plus I don't see the point bringing back a character that they had knowingly chosen to remove. USH's Kong was taken by a fire and I am sure if it hadn't been destroyed by mistake, it would still be the same thing it has always been.

      @K_Peek_2000 from what I know first hand, Kong missing from the park is one of the most consistent complaints since it's closure.

          awww, we experienced Disaster for the first time when we were at USO for HHN in September and loved it!

          whereas at HHN at USH in October, the new Kong didn't do much to impress us really, i missed the old animatronic
          Will there be screams when the sun sets,

            ^I think the problem is with Hollywoods Kong is you stay in on place.....on Spiderman and Harry Potter you move around and there are "physical" things around you still along with a lot of video screen too but they are mixed togeather well.

              Whaaaa? Come on. I think King Kong 360 3D should remain a Hollywood exclusive. They gotta have something unique to look forward to when riding the Studio Tour. I'm sure they could come up with something better to replace it with.

                2. E-T
                3. The Alfred Hitchcock building
                4. Jimmy Nutron
                5. Fear Factor

                all getting replaced, upgraded, whatever and now this.

                  The old Hitchcock building is where Shrek 4D is now. I wish it was still the Hitchcock show.

                    I thought this was the old Hitchcock building...







                    but you are right...



                    I don't know why I always get them confused. I know right now Sound Stage 44 is used for HHN storage.

                        So what was Stage 44 used for before it became storage? I have always wondered the last few years. I know it was used in one of those stupid Bring It On movies. lol!

                          It was the Old Murder She wrote attraction, then it was part of the Hercules and Xena show.

                              ^I like that, makes sense considering they'll be at least one more of those movies if not more.
