The view of the King Kong structure from Toon Lagoon:
Notice the rockwork taking shape, which will soon cover the facade (as mentioned at the beginning):
Walking into Jurassic Park:
Behind the walls:
Notice the massive portal being built to the left:
Is there any chance that this isn't a King Kong area at all, but something that will be based on the new Jurassic World movie coming out?
Judging by the steel structure it looks like the temple for kong it would of been awesome if they used those ball cars from Jurassic world in an rollercoaster/thrill ride that used animatronic dinosaurs chasing you. May be the new unknown dinosaur and use a lot of scenery to make it authentic. I still don't mind kong hope it opens this year and it's different from the one from Hollywood studios.
I Would love it to be King Kong, however the structure looks too big to be king kong
I thought for a long time that this would be something to do with Jurassic World and not Kong. It seemed odd that you'd have a ride made in an area with a new film coming out. There was also very little evidence to suggest it would be a Kong ride anyway
However, with Jurassic World coming out in 4 months I doubt the ride would be complete in time to enjoy the success of that film unless it's a massive hit. Kong: Skull Island however is rumoured for a March 2017 release.
My concern would be that if it was a Kong ride, we may have to wait 2 years to ride it.
How in any way does a King Kong ride fit into the surrounding themed area, let alone park?
I had a chat with somebody involved in some way. I Can't say any more than that for their own safety, but King Kong was confirmed to me last year.
