Universal Orlando have revealed a whole host of new details about upcoming attraction Reign of Kong, this time the focus was on the ride vehicle.

Reign of Kong Ride Vehicle Details

As you can see from the photo above, the vehicle itself is huge measuring at over 40 feet long and 13 feet high. Each vehicle weighs 17 tonnes and has a guest capacity of up to 72 people!
This attraction also marks quite a big occasion for Universal, it will be the first to operate on a completely trackless system. Fear not though, the vehicle has been designed from the ground up to be able to take sharp turns and drive over all kinds of different terrain.
I really like the idea of a trackless system for a ride like Reign of Kong, it will really add to the experience and will hopefully feel less like a theme park attraction and more like the expedition into the unknown that Universal are going for with this new ride.

Reign of Kong Ride Vehicle Drivers

In order to keep things fresh for guests who ride Reign of Kong multiple times as well as to add to the storyline of the attraction, Universal are adding multiple drivers into the mix each with their own story to tell.

  • Will Denham: An adventure-seeking younger cousin of famed movie director Carl Denham
  • Charles “Doc” Jordan: A PhD student in palaeontology who took time off to explore the world
  • Becky Callahan: A cowgirl who isn’t fazed by the dangers awaiting her on the island
  • Jinks Costanza: A hardened New York City ex-con who is wary of the island’s mysteries
  • Kalana: A mystical descendent of the natives who first settled on the island
