Reign of Kong Ride Vehicle and Experience Updates

Photo courtesy Universal Orlando Resort, from Orlando Sentinel.
Tonight Orlando Sentinel reports a major update to Reign of Kong will be coming later on March 15th. The ride vehicles are officially confirmed to be trackless, a first for Universal, and seat 72 guests. The above photo is one of the five drivers that will join you on your adventure in Skull Island. Per the story...
 West also says that "behind the wheel" will be one of five different drivers, each with a different story, which will make for varied experiences on the attraction. Drivers include Becky (a cowgirl), Will Denham (adventurous cousin of a movie director), Jinks Costanza (ex-con from New York City), Kalana (descendant of the island's natives) and Doc (paleontology student). 
 For more information and details go check out the Orlando Sentinel article.


  1. Looks awesome! Much cooler than I expected. So will there be 5 RV's? I can't tell if that lady is an AA or a human but probably a human. lol. I don't think the "driver" will be AA.

  2. So if the rumor is true that your driver will be grabbed by King out the vehicle could they use both a tv and a live actor? The tv would be mounted toward the guest so that they never know an actual person is on the other side. So when Kong grabs the driver it shows the violent grab Kong would make on the tv. That way since the guest don't know that there is a live actor they could rig themselves to be pulled out of the car. What do you guys think?
