Universal Studios, the Return Of King Kong

When I was young, I went to many many theme parks with my family. My grandpa loved our day trips. His favorite place to go was Universal Studios. He thought that place was absolutely fabulous! He got a kick out of everything. The tram tour, Jaws, the monsters who would mingle pre-tram, all of it. But most of all he loved that gigantic ape, King Kong. We’d go on the tram tour, and you could see him visibly perk up when he realized we were going in the King Kong ride. We’d leave the ride and he’d always say “No more monkey business!” LOL My grandpa passed away in 2000, but I never stopped loving that ride. So you can imagine our devastation when the fire hit the Universal Studios backlot in 2008, reducing many of our favorite sets to pure ash including King Kong. My mom and I vowed that as soon as King Kong opened, we’d be there opening day! Well, by some chance of luck, we were there on July 1 when King Kong opened once again.

The new attraction is essentially modeled after the new movie, so gone is all the fun and campy aspects of the ride. But this new attraction is thrilling, breathtaking, and absolutely takes your breath away! 4D ain’t no joke! As soon as you get a chance, get over to Universal Studios Hollywood to ride this attraction. You’ll be glad you did.
