Last year, Universal Orlando opened Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort several months before they opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley. Just last week, Universal Orlando announced that Loews Sapphire Falls Resort will welcome guests on July 14th, 2016. If Universal Orlando does the same as they did last year with Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Diagon Alley, we could expect Skull Island: Reign of Kong to open after Sapphire Falls Resort. However, because Sapphire Falls Resort opens so late, Universal cannot wait several months to open the attraction because they would risk making more profit. Instead, we could expect the ride to open sometime in July of 2016 though we cannot confirm this.
Mid-July may still seem like a late opening date but The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley opened just a week before mid-July, which makes this a rather excellent opening date.
We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
UPDATE (3/20/16): New rumors suggest Skull Island: Reign of Kong will open in late June.
UPDATE (5/1/16): Late June media preview for Reign of Kong attraction hints the ride may officially open in early July.
