Take a look, if you missed it:
The previous Kong attraction was destroyed during the backlot fire at Universal in 2008. Here's what Universal says about the new version, which will open in "late June/early July" according to the latest estimate from the park:
Guests will don special glasses as they enter a darkened soundstage aboard the Studio Tour trams and will be transported - via the magic of Surround Digital 3D projection - deep into the dark heart of the world of Skull Island. They’ll survive a close encounter with a swarm of monstrous bats, only to be confronted by the terrifying presence of Kong himself. Suddenly, an enormous, ravenous 35-foot tall dinosaur will challenge Kong and guests will feel their trams jolt, roll and shudder as they find themselves caught in the middle of a ferocious showdown between the great ape and the giant lizard.
