Skull Island: Reign of Kong features a mix of screen-based and practical effects, and becomesĀ the longest ride in Universal Orlando Resort's history.

After making their way to "base camp" through the queue line, guests board enormous safari trucks before being taking on an adventure deep into Skull Island's jungle. Naturally, things go wrong...fast.

Skull Island: Reign of Kong is a family friendly giant truck ride to an island you've never experienced before. It definitely brings out my inner explorer. It's essentially a 3D safari with no spinning, dropping, or going upside down. It's as dark as a movie theater and goes about 5mph in total. It's one of those after lunch rides. The queue experience is half of the fun and the nods and little details are done well. I recommend asking for a temple tour and learning about the ride and it's back story. A must do, but the best time to ride it is at night.
