P. 611: Full Halloween Horror Nights 2021 lineup revealed!

Recommended Posts

I don't think there's going to be drivers at all in this attraction. The main cabin windows of the

big jeeps will be darkened so you can't see if there's a driver in there, or not. They'll just drive up,

load up, and take off, with a taped "guided tour", until it all goes wrong....

 

My hunch.

They really don't show a driver, there. Just the passengers.

^ I think they're reusing the same launch. They never removed the track out of the tunnel. Why fix it if isn't broke? Seems to me the tire launch has been really efficient for them.

 

I don't know if they have been efficient. That's a lot of motors!

Am I seriously the only one seeing King Kong 360-3D with a longer preshow? Anyone? Bueller?

 

If by "preshow" you mean "it is now just a component to a longer ride," then yes. It's a bit like calling Formula Rossa and Dragster the same but that Rossa just has some additional post-show before the kiosk selling onride photos.

Jebus I hope this isn't another film 3D based ride, its time to go back to the Kong of old, but than again they should never have shut the old ride down!

 

The old Kong used to break down. A lot.

 

The tore it down a decade ago. Deal with it

 

Fun fact: The track is connected to the ceiling of the building. The tagging in the queue is still there in back of house areas too.

I thought it was pretty obvious that it was going to be film based?!?

 

 

Well I don't live and breath theme parks, but the Hollywood version is rather awful, if you not in the right spot on that tram, it really is just a nice 3D forest

Got to love it when a 15 year old waste of space tells you to deal with it, where you off your mothers tit when it closed or still in nappies?

^That was quite rude condescending and kinda unnecessary . . .

My hunch.

From what I have read, I think you will see a pepper ghost driver or a shadow of one. Also, the video they posted says once you're in the temple you will meet some people.

"....You will meet some people...."

 

That sounds ambiguous enough, lol.

 

A driverless vehicle always sounds exciting!

 

Here's hoping.

lol . . . here some more solid info from Universals blog

 

Finally, you make it through to base camp and expedition vehicles. You set off for the heart of the island to rendezvous with your expedition leader.

 

The video says you will meet Kate McKalfrey and her team. Now, to what extent you meet them is unknown to me but it seems you're not gonna be along on this journey. It may something similar to what Poseidon's fury is like.

All on film/video, possible screens in the jeeps them self, just like on the Tram Tour at Paris Disney Studios! (Hi Jeremy Irons!)

 

Just supposing...

I'm assuming "meeting" that team of people = a prerecorded video that hosts you through the ride.

 

And the scare actors in the queue. Those too.

http://screamscape.com/html/islands_of_adventure.htm#Kong Check out the 2/27/16 post. They are getting "entertainers" that we can assume will be the natives. Wonder if they will be in the queue or actually in the ride?

Can I ask some advice on child swap?

 

We have a 4 year old and 20 month old. If I take my 4 year old and we use child swap, wil they let him go back on with my wife, or is it just my wife? I know WDW allow this but unsure about Universal.

Yes, your 4-year old will be able to ride twice. It's the same as WDW
