Despite the fact that we have followed closely this construction progress in the past two years, we continue to be amazed by the massive space that this new themed area is being built on, as well as the attention to details that is now seen in most of the latest additions that have opened at the Universal Orlando Resort.
This evening we'll share some photos of the new Reign of Kong area with you.
The large entrance gates that were already spotted a few weeks ago have been unveiled once again:
More work continues to do nearby:
Back on the ground:
Here you are some great behind-the-wall pictures of the area:
The entrance arch looks much more menacing now thanks to its new color scheme:
Notice the nets that will separate the outdoor queue from the ride path:
The new food & beverage cart continues to take shape near the Reign of Kong attraction:
New canes have been planted nearby to hide the facade from Toon Lagoon:
We will be back soon with a general Islands of Adventure update. Stay tuned.
@Andrew: It is very unlikely that the structure will be used as an area for lockers, as the ride will not require them (it's not going to be a coaster or an attraction with extreme movements). In addition to that, a snack kiosk was located in the same area before the construction walls surrounded the area, leading us to believe that it will come back.
