Universal Orlando Resort on Tuesday unveiled the expedition vehicles that will be used in its King Kong ride, Skull Island: Reign of Kong, to open this summer at Islands of Adventure.
Guests will be transported to Kong’s home on a 40-foot-long, 17-ton bus/truck that can carry 72 passengers.
The first part of the trek, through the jungle and temple ruins, will be done on foot — part of the queue — and the rest of the way will be in the expedition trucks.
The heart of the story is an exploration of a mysterious island where prehistoric creatures still live and legend tells of an unknown great beast.
Never miss a local story.
Universal also announced that the guides who will drive the trucks will play the roles of one of five characters.
A specific opening date has not been announced.
