This morning the Universal Orlando Blog posted an update to Skull Island: Reign of Kong with the amazing photo above and an official ride description. Universal also uploaded two videos, one a behind the scenes look at the creation of the attraction.
A new 'Myth Explorers' mini series has been created online using real life SyFy star Erin Ryder on her quest to find Skull Island and King Kong. The series is hosted on the UOR YouTube page and all links go to the UOR website, so this is very much a viral marketing campaign for the attraction. The production values are high and I'm intrigued to see where this goes. The first episode is available below.
Reign of Kong is expected to open this summer, rumored more specifically July 2016.

Finally a Notice of Commencement has been filed for slide construction and for the first time we have confirmation that ProSlide is supplying all slides for the water park.
