  • King Kong to return to Universal Studios Orlando?

    After reading on a YouTube video's comments regarding the famous Kongfrontation, someone said that there would be a new King Kong ride, and after doing some research, it looks like Universal has green lit the project. It will replacing Disaster (which is a retheme of Earthquake) and will be totally different to any other Kong ride. Again, nothing confirmed but it will be a unique experience.

    And it is expected to open in 2015!

    Any news, please report them below!
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    Where exactly did you do your research. Because we all know YouTube comments are "most reliable source".

      It's more than just a Youtube rumor FWIW

      Is King Kong coming back to Universal Orlando? - Orlando Business Journal

      There's a bunch of stuff on that one and several other articles if you're up for a quick Google on them - it looks like this all broke out from the Orlando blog referenced there some time back in June/July.

      Of course this means this may be a YouTube rumor started off a Blog rumor... but hey.

        I for one wouldn't mind seeing Kongfrontation return. I'm just curious as to how would they make it fit in with San Fransisco.

          This is old "news." In fact, the source has already changed his tune and said it's going in IOA instead, next to JPRA.

            These links have the same information, stating that while it is still a rumour, knowing Universal and the Orlando United Website, it could possible be true

              As far as we know, from a reliable source, that a King Kong attraction will NOT be replacing Disaster.
              It may be coming to IOA, but land has been cleared behind Disaster, so if anything does replace it, it will be a themed area, not a stand alone attraction.
              Sorry guys.

                That'll be a new one, getting rid of a ride and bringing it back? For now, I think it's just all talk, rumors, and wishing for it to come back. I see no real solid and significant reason why Universal would bring it back, unless it tied in with a new movie that's going to be big.

                  The OBJ article said one of the rumors was that ET would be closed for a Smurfs attraction. Hahahaha, no thanks.

                      I hope this is true that King Kong returns and we get the long rumored JP Jeep ride.

                        Thanks for the info, hopefully this is true and we will get the return of King Kong!
                        Also, updated Jurassic Park, brilliant!

                        Could you quote the source, so we can see this in the 'flesh'

                        By the way, it is in my opinion, that the updated Jurassic Park attraction is called an E-Ticket a bit funny. Still hopefully great things on the way!

                          See my previous post. This was his original (now outdated, according to him) announcement.

                            While there is no solid announcement, it is nice to have these rumours. Also, whole the news story is old, I think it will happen, but the when and where are still being debated. One thing that is certain is a Jurassic Park expansion, but we will have to wait for King Kong to (hopefully) return.

                              I learned today it is going to go in IOA and not be replaced with Disaster!
