King Kong looks like a heavily themed Supernova
http://www.flatrides.com/Ride%20Index%2 ... rnova.html

Though, this kinda isn't a new idea, remember the Stratosphere wanting a gorilla to climb the side of the tower and shake the cage? (While it was still under Bob Stupack's control, the nutcase he is! :) )

Thats what i thought at first, but a supernova goes all the way around, the arms make a 360. This looks like it will be one quarter of a supernova! lol

video linked through Screamscape.

Video of the mock-up for the ride, looks heavily themed, but not too exciting (for me) definitely a scre-the-crap-out-of-your-kid kind of ride.

I've gone pantless!

Looks like Kong has really bad breath and could use a few Tic Tacs. I'm thinking that this will be a fun, family-oriented flat ride, and will probably stand or fall on its special effects and themeing.

They could have made it a rather exciting ride if they attempted to use some really powerful motors in King Kong's arms, and did some demented form of a Space Shot. IMO with the shaking, that would have been really fun. [steelhawgreference]At least I finally see real innovation at parks now.[/steelhawgreference.]

Nice update, I'm a bit confused as to where the Splash Battle is going? Is it in that kind of dead indoors area near Revolution? Is it going to be covered?

Completely awesome vid. of King Kong :P

Only in Europe I guess.

Although one will probably be in the states soon. I'd love to see parques reunidos stick one in Kennywood.

It is coming in Hall 2000, indoor area in front of Revolution. Here you can find a very old picture how hall 2000 was, with in the back the entrance of Revolution. So the Banana Battle (splash battle) is completely indoor.

Revolution is going to be rethemed in jungle style. The question is how far will they be going with the retheming.
