Universal Theme Park Reveals Flaming Ape Attraction
Spurred on by the free publicity and sellout crowds that followed the destruction of its landmark King Kong, Universal Studios says the Kong attraction will be replaced “Kong, the Flaming Giant Monkey!” in which the King of the Apes will constantly catch fire.
Stacy Colangelo, vice president for public relations, told reporters, it’s the next logical addition to the fun at Universal. “People come to Universal for the thrill of safely experiencing tragedies-- Earthquakes, floods, twisters, and avalanches. Every day, thousands of visitors suffer through the devastation of fire on our ‘Backdraft’ ride; think of this as ‘Backdraft 2: Smells Like Monkey.’ It’s fun, because it’s dangerous.”
