Universal Orlando unveiled a few of the new monsters that will be featured in this summer's new attraction Skull Island: Reign of Kong. 

As expected, many of the new creatures were in the 2005 film King Kong. According to the official Universal blog, the new creatures include an arachno-claw (a six-legged carnivorous arachnid), a carnictis (a slug-like bug that lacks eyes and facial features), a decarnocimex (an aggressive and vicious cave-dwelling insect), a terapusmordax (a large flying predator with a wingspan of 10 feet) and a vastatosaurus rex (the largest and most intimidating dinosaur).



Skull Island: Reign of Kong is a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional ride about a 1930's expedition with prehistoric predators, man-eating beasts and, not to forget, the one and only King Kong. While these monsters fight for dominance, your job is to survive. 


If you want to get another look at these monsters, the cast of Syfy's show Face Off will be making these creatures with special-effects makeup on Wednesday, March 30 at 9 p.m.
