In the previous part of this update, we took a look around the entrance of the park, Seuss Landing, the Lost Continent, and so on. That said, we know that you are excited about whatever is happening in the future King Kong area. Well, continue reading and you'll find out. Your patience should soon be rewarded:

The queue line for the ticket distribution area has been set up in the former Triceratops Discovery Trail:

Jurassic Park River Adventure:

The extended queue has been set up here as well:

A big splash:

The Thunder Falls Terrace is a great restaurant. We are glad to see that it is also open for dinner now:

The former T-Rex photo-op:

It is finally time to check on the construction area that will soon be home to a new King Kong attraction:

Notice all the pipes in the background:

What's the news? Well, take a look here:

 You see those pillars? We are not sure about their nature, but they are definitely something important:

Moving around:

A view of these "pillars" from the opposite side:

A closer look:

They are sealed on both ends:

  1. Always liked this park. Anxious to see the king attraction come to life.

  2. wil it be something like the king kong ride in Hollywood universal ?

  3. The "pillars" look like either steam or chilled water lines. They are welded together and transport chilled water or steam from a central generation plant to heat and cool the new building.

  4. Ditto on the "pillars" looking like steam or chilled water lines and maybe perhaps even Natural Gas(?).
    At this point everything looks to be utility/underground work and nothing is for vertical construction yet as the photos show no concrete foundations installed on the site yet.

  5. the "pillars" are not pillars, they are as previous comments stated, steam or chill water piping
