 Fans will get to make their way through Skull Island, seeing replicas of a giant Mother Long-Legs spider on their way to encounter the largest animatronic in New York City. At a towering eighteen feet, participants will have the chance to come face-to-face with the beast himself — the legendary King Kong. Taking months to create, this is Kong in his most true form yet. Kong-head made from over 350 square feet of specialized faux hair.  Taking a team of thirty three artists, the full project took over seventy days to complete. The beast acts in a very lifelike manner, as his eyes look around the room. Seeing how his mouth moves, and how he lets out large growls periodically really makes you think twice about what it would be like to be on Skull Island! I know that is a place I would definitely visit if I had the chance and this experience let me feel as if I actually had that chance. Check out what we thought of the movie here.
 KongMad2Being a King Kong fan forever this exhibit was like a dream come true. It really gave me a chance to feel first hand what it would be like to come up face to face with KONG! Bravo, Madame Tussauds, you have done it again! This one is a real gem for any King Kong fan. We also had the chance to talk with a representative from Madame Tussauds about the partnership with Kong: Skull Island, and you can check out the interview HERE and also get a sneak peek at the exhibit!
