It would seem that Universal Orlando are about to get some competition on their King Kong animatronic from Hammamet in Tunisia. The area is working on a brand new spinning coaster that will have a 42 foot tall Kong animatronic as the attraction’s centrepiece.

Apparently the animatronic has been designed to move and look like a real gorillia (though the below pictures make it seem a bit sketchy) as specialists EOS have studied the animals behaviour in the real world.

For most of the attraction Kong will be watching guests until suddenly the animatronic raises to full height and does the classic chest thump that Kong is known for. The animatronic will also let out a roar that can be heard from nearly a mile away!

More details as soon as we see them!
