"You will be thrust into an exotic world filled with the menacing, the intense -- and the wildly entertaining," a press release from the theme park promised.
"A powerful storyline, a stunning 3D experience, innovative technology -- and the unexpected -- will pull you into one of Universal Orlando's most massive adventures yet. This is a multi-dimensional experience filled with surprise -- all wrapped into what will be one of the longest Universal ride experiences ever created."
The adventure begins at a campsite of the 8th Wonder Expedition Company, the research team leading the expedition.
"Once beyond camp, the menacing terrain shows signs of a native presence; beating drums draw you toward an ancient temple. Moving deeper into the ruins reveals a lost shrine -- and proof you are not alone. You ignore warnings to turn back," the press release said. "You board a specially designed expedition vehicle that will take you deeper into the island.
Mysterious sounds pierce the air and you hear chanting. And then “ you confront an enormous temple wall, complete with carvings and images that seem to pay homage to something you cannot quite comprehend. The temple's massive wooden doors slowly open, revealing a labyrinth of caves. Inside the caves, you meet your expedition leader -- and suddenly find yourself in the midst of a raging struggle between creatures of incomprehensible size and ferocity. Then, as those creatures turn on you, there is an even more enormous, earth-pounding presence -- bigger, closer and more overwhelming than you can possibly imagine. It is Kong. But is he friend or foe?"
