King Kong 360 3D
This week King Kong returns to Universal Studios Hollywood in the form of a state of the art 3D attraction as part of the studio tram tour. As you may recall, a couple years back a fire burnt down the old animatronic Kong attraction and a big section of the backlot. Universal worked with Peter Jackson to create a new ride for a new decade. The ride features two curved 3D screens on both sides of the studio tram, putting you in the middle of the action. Hydraulics lift/push the cart around, as water, smells and air are squirted at you to represent what is happening on screen. On Tuesday morning, I had a chance to be one of the first groups to ride this new attraction. You can find out what I thought, in the video blog after the jump (which I recorded with Alex from FirstShowing).

The Making of King Kong 360 3D Part 2

Universal Studios Hollywood have released the second part of their Making of Peter Jackson‘s King Kong 360 3-D behind the scenes documentar. The attraction opens next week at the California-based studio/theme park. The four minute video gives “an insider view into the storyline of “King Kong 360 3-D”, backstory of the Kong character and designing the creatures of Skull Island.” We get to see some concept artwork and animatics from the ride, and we even get a peek at the hydraulics that will push the tram from side to side. Watch the video now after the jump. I’ve also included Part 1 for those who missed it.
