    Great to hear. I remember going on the original ride when I was 8. We turned a corner, Kong popped out and scared the **** out of my 5 year old sister. My dad couldn't stop laughing at her :funny:

    The Evil Dead and Cabin in the Woods should be awesome horror mazes.

    Is this the "new ride" or the old one polished up? I seem to remember that the new ride is all digital with a 3D environment putting you in the middle of the kong/t-rex fight.

    complete new ride combining aspects of the old full animatronic kong and the newer digital one.

    the press release states you will see kong in the flesh, so i'm thinking harry potter esq type ride

    you see the dragon chase potter on digital 3d screen, track moves on full size animatronic dragon head in front of you

    I was just at Universal Orlando last Oct but I lived in Orlando for a few years as a kid and Universal was my favorite park by far. When I went back as an adult I was kind of bummed to find my favorites like Kong and Jaws were gone. I loved the updates to Earthquake, now Disaster, with the fake movie and audience participation so I'm bummed they're getting rid of it. It was really funny.

    I got to be in the Disaster show the last time I was there. :oldrazz:

    However, I'm excited that Kong is coming back! Loved that ride!!

    Maybe it means that one day we'll see the return of Jaws. Here's hoping.
