Universal Orlando Resort has announced new details about Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

The shroud of secrecy has been pulled back and Universal Orlando Resort has released storyline details about their new attraction under construction at Universal Islands of Adventure: Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

For fans of Kong who yearn for his former ride at Universal Studios Florida, today's details about the mega attraction scheduled to open this summer hints at an experience that will be well worth the wait.

The 3D attraction begins at a remote campsite on a mysterious island alive with strange and prehistoric creatures. An expedition aboard a specially designed vehicle moves deeper into the island, to the beat of distant native drums, through ancient ruins toward a temple with a towering wall.

The gates to the temple open to expose a labyrinth of caves. Once inside the caves, a raging struggle ensues between massive creatures. They then turn their focus on the credulous riders until an even larger creature is revealed: Kong.

But is Kong here to help? That's the extent of storyline that Universal has disclosed.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong is scheduled to open this summer inside Universal Islands of Adventure — one of two theme parks located at Universal Orlando Resort. Stay tuned for more details as they are released to us.
