Peter Jackson Talks Universal’s New King Kong 3D Attraction

Hearts of fans everywhere were broken when the King Kong attraction burned down at Universal Studios LA a couple of years ago. But you can’t keep a good ape down. Especially one so pissed off and huge! We’re happy to announce that Kong is now back, and bigger and badder than ever!

Universal announced today an official July 4th launch for King Kong 360 3-D, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, Uni sat down with Kong’s latest creator to talk about what fans can expect!

In the new attraction guests will be given special 3D glasses as they enter a darkened soundstage aboard the Studio Tour trams and will be transported – via the magic of Surround Digital 3D projection – deep into a tangled jungle location. They’ll survive a close encounter with a swarm of hungry raptors, only to be confronted by the terrifying presence of 35′ tall dinosaur behemoths, intent on attacking the tram and Studio Tour guests.

Suddenly, a 25′ tall gorilla appears – Kong himself! The trams jolt and shudder as the guests find themselves caught in the middle of a titanic struggle between these colossal prehistoric foes – the great ape and carnivorous reptiles – action which sends the packed trams sliding ever closer to the edge of a bottomless chasm.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I guess Jackson’s King Kong was just too much entertainment for some people.

      What’s amazing is that people considered Jackson’s King Kong actual Entertainment.
      “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

  • Terminal

    If it’s like 2005 “King Kong” it will be two hours too long, feature a boring homoerotic sub-plot with a captain and his tween first mate, and have a dumb scene involving a two ton ape skating on a thin sheet of ice.

    If the ride is as exciting as the movie this thing will be a cure for insomnia.

  • Vermithrax

    I’m still WAY pissed that their not opening this in Orlando where the original ride was. Damn Californians get everything!

    • Floydian Trip

      Including every natural disaster possible, they can have it. I do want to hear about this ride once it’s opened. Will it live up to everything PJ says?
