Massive winged beasts that hunt from the skies. Serpentine predators that burrow through the earth and attack from below. Giant insects that infest the jungles. These are just a few of the deadly creatures you’ll encounter on Skull Island: Reign of Kong.

When you embark this summer at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you won’t be alone. Here you’ll come face to face with unimaginable creatures that prowl this mysterious and foreboding world.

These carnivorous arachnids from Skull Island: Reign of Kongmove throughout the swampy underworld of the island’s dark caverns, foraging for dead or injured creatures. The six-legged scavenger uses its crab-like claws to crush its prey before feasting on the remains.

The giant, slug-like Carnictis from Skull Island: Reign of Konglacks eyes or facial features. But its gaping, oozing mouth—ringed with sharp, jagged teeth—is a distinguishing feature that allows this slow but relentless creature to feed on dead and wounded beings that have succumbed to the wretched, murky chasms of the island.

SIROK Decarnocimex

Decarnocimex
One of the largest and most aggressive cave-dwelling inhabitants on the island, the Decarnocimex will attack anything smaller or weaker that dares to cross its path. These vicious insects tear apart their prey with their razor-sharp mandibles and two-bladed forearms.

These are the largest flying predators on Skull Island: Reign of Kong, with wingspans up to 10 feet. They live in colonies within the island's interior caverns and are easily provoked. Spearing victims with lethal talons, they use large carnivorous fangs to penetrate anything—or anyone—caught in their jaws of death.

The V. Rex is the largest, most intimidating dinosaur that roams Skull Island: Reign of Kong's dense jungles. Despite its large, bulky head and tough leathery skin, it’s an agile predator, changing direction at high speeds and ripping into its prey with razor-sharp teeth.

    Does anyone know when it will open during the summer?

    When does this open? Besides summer

    Hello, while we enjoy the updates we receive about Skul Island, we haven’t been able to find out when it opens to the public? We are coming to Universal in June and want to visit Skull Island if it’s open.

    • Kongalicious

      Hate to burst your bubble but if they haven’t set an opening date and it’s already the end of March, more than likely it won’t open until the last part of the summer, effectively hosing anyone making plans in early Summer to be the first to experience it. Think about it. If they were ready wouldn’t they release the opening date so that people would make plans already?

      • Hayley

        Don’t think you’re right, Kongalicious. I called Universal, and the dispatchers said that for the last two rides the parks opened–Gringotts and Transformers–they weren’t told of open until literally the day of. Also, the video recording the opening announcement was completed at the park just days ago. The several dispatchers I spoke to couldn’t give me a date, but they say they think the ride will at least soft-open by the time of my vacation, which is in mid-May.

          Not exactly true, I’m afraid. I think your operators were unsure, therefore they told you what would satisfy. I attended the Transformers opening with my husband. We were given some notice, though I’m not sure if that was because we are annual passholders. As of yet, I haven’t seen a notification of opening in my email or postal mail, but I seriously doubt Universal would miss the opportunity to beat out that other amusement park in terms of traffic. My guess is that they are burning the candle at both ends to have this thing up and running by the end of June.
          Full disclosure: I am hoping for at least a June opening, as I plan to visit in July.

  6. #ReignOfKong

    Will it open in May? Or soft openings in April?

  7. André DeVine

    Anxiously awaiting our Anual Passholder exclusive sneak preview invite. Here’s hoping we get it with plenty of notice. Really excited for Kong.

  8. Ron Mejzak

    I cannot wait until this attraction is opened.

    When is this opening. We are visiting Orlando from the 11th to the 23rd June.

    • potato

      It will probably be open then.

    I just really hope this ride is not filled with a bunch of 4K screens like all of the other rides like half of the Universal rides that exist

  11. CreationsToGo Studios

    are u going to have a pass holder preview?

  12. Galadriel

    Will there be great views from all seats? I’m shorter than the average adult and often have a taller person blocking my view. This is part of the reason why Forbidden Journey is my favorite ride; it has the best designed sight-lines ever!
