Universal Orlando have unleashed the details about the Skull Island creatures you’ll encounter in Skull Island: Reign of Kong.
King Kong may be the icon of the highly anticipated attraction coming to Islands of Adventure, but Universal Orlando have unleashed the details on some of the creatures guests will confront on Skull Island: Reign of Kong. The details came in the form of a blog post from Universal Orlando Resort and the following video.
Arachno-Claw: These carnivorous arachnids move throughout the swampy underworld of the island’s dark caverns, foraging for dead or injured creatures. The six-legged scavenger uses its crab-like claws to crush its prey before feasting on the remains.
Carnictis: The giant, slug-like Carnictis lacks eyes or facial features. But its gaping, oozing mouth ringed with sharp, jagged teeth is a distinguishing feature that allows this slow but relentless creature to feed on dead and wounded beings that have succumbed to the wretched, murky chasms of the island.
Decarnocimex: One of the largest and most aggressive cave-dwelling inhabitants on the island, the Decarnocimex will attack anything smaller or weaker that dares to cross its path. These vicious insects tear apart their prey with their razor sharp mandibles and two-bladed forearms.
Terapusmordax: These are the largest flying predators on the island, with wingspans up to ten feet. They live in colonies within the island’s interior caverns and are easily provoked. Spearing victims with lethal talons, they use large carnivorous fangs to penetrate anything or anyone caught in their jaws of death.
Vastatosaurus Rex: The V.Rex is the largest, most intimidating dinosaur that roams the island’s dense jungles. Despite its large, bulky head and tough leathery skin, it’s an agile predator, changing direction at high speeds and ripping into its prey with razor-sharp teeth.
The creatures of Skull Island, along with Kong himself, will be brought to life through a combination of physical props and animatronic figures, as well as 3-D projections. Skull Island: Reign of Kong is set to open in a few months.
