From Robert Niles on February 10, 2014 at 12:43 PMDo 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.
From Daniel Etcheberry on February 10, 2014 at 4:26 PMThe 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.
From Robert Niles on February 10, 2014 at 5:02 PMI'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.
From Daniel Etcheberry on February 10, 2014 at 5:41 PMI agree Robert. They would have to change that area into Skull Island. Otherwise, it wouldn't fit with San Francisco.
From Jaiden Cohen on March 8, 2014 at 7:00 AMBased on Robert's new blog that went up recently, its going on the Triceratops Encounter Site.
From Rob Pastor on March 8, 2014 at 3:54 PMRobert 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.
From Manny Rodriguez on March 12, 2014 at 4:32 PMIMO skull island would fit well in The Jurassic park area At IOA
