For an attraction as massive as Reign of Kong at Universal Orlando Resort, a new kind of ride vehicle was needed to put Guests in the heart of the story.
The expedition vehicle for this new attraction measure over 40 feet long and 13 feet high, weighs in at 17 tons and carries up to 72 people. The front and back axles that support the vehicle’s 45-inch wheels can be steered individually. This lets the ride vehicle take sharp turns and pull off some complicated maneuvers.


To immerse Guests even further in the story, another Universal first was created. This all-terrain vehicle operates on a completely trackless system. Without a rail or guidance track in sight, Guests will work their way across the rugged island in search of their next adventure.






At the wheel will be one of five drivers, each with their own story to tell:
  • Becky Callahan: A cowgirl who isn’t fazed by the dangers awaiting her on the island.
  • Will Denham: An adventure-seeking younger cousin of famed movie director Carl Denham.
  • Jinks Costanza: A hardened New York City ex-con who is wary of the island’s mysteries.
  • Kalana: A mystical descendent of the natives who first settled on the island.
  • Charles “Doc” Jordan: A PhD student in paleontology who took time off to explore the world.
