Theme park fans around the world were happy to hear that the highly-awaited Reign of Kong ride started operating just a couple of days ago, even if that was only for Universal Orlando Team Members. It's even more exciting to think that the attraction might finally soft-open to the general public in the next few days (today is out of the question according to some Team Members standing outside the ride). Of course, there's more to see around the park other than Kong...
