Disaster! could be the home for King Kong 360

They can keep the train and layout, and just change the main show's props for a couple of screens.

I made a discussion about this a while ago with some details. Go and check it out.

Do we really want another movie-studio-themed attraction, or do visitors prefer more immersive experience in complete environments? In other words, would you rather visit a recreation of the Harry Potter film set, or a recreation of Hogsmeade?

I'd love to see Universal create a Kong attraction within the context of visiting Skull Island. Or to see Kong running loose in New York again. But the Earthquake/Disaster model for a studio attraction is a tired, played-out concept at this point. Maybe there's a way to reinvigorate it, but simply making the theme King Kong alone doesn't do that... for me, at least.

The pre-show could be a walk-through the jungle of Skull Island. And then you ride the train with the same footage of USH's King Kong 360. It's better than Disaster, and you can't do much in that small space anyways.

I'd love to see Kong return to USF, but if Universal's going to do this, I'd rather see the whole San Francisco land transform to Skull Island. Don't shove Skull Island into a room on the San Francisco waterfront.

I agree Robert. They would have to change that area into Skull Island. Otherwise, it wouldn't fit with San Francisco.

Based on Robert's new blog that went up recently, its going on the Triceratops Encounter Site.

Robert corrected his first posting. It will probably be next to the retention pond behind the River Adventure falls & the restaurant. That area is more than twice the size of the Trike area.

IMO skull island would fit well in The Jurassic park area At IOA
