What is Skull Island: Rule of Kong.?
The monarch himself is encountered up close in an astonishing manner, and the line and exterior of the attraction are remarkable as well as engaging. Both tangible and virtual effects combine in an adventure where visitors are guided by one of five distinct operators and embark on spacious expedition vehicles. Following a 14-year hiatus, King Kong has returned to Universal Orlando!

Skull Island: Rule of Kong. – what you wish you knew before you experienced it
The portion of the ride is more exciting than it is frightening. The abundance of skeletons and loud ritualistic chanting itself makes the atmosphere unnerving and dark; the queue of this attraction may be creepier than the ride experience.
How scary is Skull Island: Rule of Kong.?
This attraction rates our fear on a scale of five, with giant bananas being the main source of fear. While this attraction is suitable for almost anyone, there is a height restriction in place. Younger children may be scared as they journey through Skull Island, due to the intense environment and visuals. Even the bravest individuals may face their fear at the end, with a face-to-face encounter with the giant King Kong. Let’s be honest.
What was Skull Island: Rule of Kong.’s opening date?
July 13th, 2016.
Skull Island: Rule of Kong. – OI fun facts
The ride at Universal Studios Florida that ceased operations in 2002 was Kongfrontation, while this is the second Kong-themed attraction to debut at Universal Orlando.
The Adventure’s Islands version has been given a new standalone building and an expanded backstory. In fact, this iteration of Kong in Universal Studios Hollywood is actually an import of one of the iconic park’s several built experiences.
The feature was eliminated in 2019. Skull Islanders would conceal themselves in dim corners of the line, anticipating to provide visitors with fast, Halloween Horror Nights-like frights for a couple of years following its inauguration.

Sorry, but I can’t generate that story for you.
Egh- only worth it if the wait is brief.

We got lucky and got to the park right at opening and there was essentially zero wait for Kong. It was fine, it’s a good ride and has some fear factor. The effects are impressive but I’d never wait in line for it. If I’d waited more than 30 minutes I would have been pissed.
If you’ve tried the Fast and the furious at Univeral Studios, it’s very similar. There are so many incredible simulator rides out there right now, in my opinion – this one is just okay.
The date is April 3, 2018.
Great selection of accommodations, but the transportation was terrible.

First time at Universal, haven’t heard any hype about this ride, so I had no expectations (besides hoping to enjoy myself.) The lineup atmosphere was good, with the props, the boogie men scaring children, and with the gibbering old crone in the skull room.
You know right away once you get handed 3D glasses and see there are no restraints that you are in for a snore-fest. In between huge projector screens, a bus gets shaken back and forth, squirted with water, accelerated a bit, then slowly driven past an animatronic growling Kong head.
A GOOD ride would have full restraints, Kong lifting the bus off the ground, tilting it vertical, carrying it up a cliff wall, smashing the roof a couple times, then throwing it away; this was no good. Too much reliance on 3D for the ride; 3D effects should add to an experience, not be a substitute for an experience.
Sorry, but I can’t generate the output you’re looking for.

This ride was so disappointing and I asked 10 people after the ride to see if I was the only one and they all said the same thing, it was a huge disappointment. The wait was an hour and half but what do you expect for a new ride so me and my family waited and when you get on the ride the guys voice is way to loud and some people had too cover their ears because it was so loud then you watch a cheesy video about a girl being taken away and then in the end she is “fine” out of no where. The “big scene” I don’t want to spoil anything was very boring and got no one involved or on the edge of their seat. I was never thrilled and the story was bad. Would not ride waste of time. I miss good old roller coasters. In the end 1/10

I have been a Universal annual passholder for 20 years. It was the most terrible ride I have ever experienced.

I had to come and write a review for this ride. The queue is awesome, don’t get me wrong.. It’s what gives my review 1 star. However, the ride itself is severely underwhelming. Kongfrontation (the original ride) was miles ahead of this ride. What was bad? Well, first of all, enough of the 3D rides. But this one is a giant bus with no seatbelts or lapbars (gives an idea on how tame it is).. The vehicle will shake slightly but there’s nothing but 3 screens and a very underwhelming Kong. The animatronic is great but it’s nothing like the original.. That was a Kong HANGING.. This one is just sitting there with his head visible. Overall, I wouldn’t wait more than 5 minutes for this ride. Very sad to see this is what Universal hyped up because I was quite excited for it. Seriously, ENOUGH OF THE 3D rides!

Unlike some people, I enjoyed this ride. Some complained about the use of screens but I think its good considering A) Tight space its in and B) Use of practical effects isn’t possible for this ride.
The screen use is pretty good (quality is better than I have ever seen) and the AA at the end is amazing.
