    I was thinking something along the lines of compressed air as well. I thought gas at first but I can't see any of the warning labels that must be present for chemicals.

    For Supercharged at USH, I believe there are C02 tanks outside the main showbuilding.

    I would say, expect it for the 360 sequence, and not as fire effects.

    It's clearly a tank of liquid nitrogen that we'll need to explode to have it freeze the T1000 chasing us

    If you watch the POV of F&F at Hollywood they shoot LN2 at the guests during the 360 scene...I hope that carries over to this version

    I wasn't sure if it was C02 or LN2. Glad that I got that corrected, as I wasn't exactly sure.

    That said, if the tank is there now, odds are that the LN2 will be used just the same as how USH did it.

    Idk seems strange to have 2 different types of tanks for only one effect(compressed air). Seems the white tank ahs some writing on the front that might say "Fuel"

    fuel tanks for theme park rides - Google Search

    If you zoom in to behind the Mummy building, you can see a tall white tank that looks jus like the one for F&F. seems curious. Sorry guys just trying to hold out any hope to make this ride better.

    I have no idea what the tank is outside of ours haha..but I imagine air is used for the moving platforms and LN2 for the effects

    This will have more practical effects than Konh

    For now on, I'll just call Skull Island: Reign of Kong to Reign of Konh.

    But that I am not surprised to hear.

    For some reason, I wasn't expecting a gap between the the SF facades and the show building.

    Me neither. It kinda looks like a n outside portion similar to Kong. If that's the case then this ride is just... I can't.

    They have mentioned nothing about an outside portion to the ride, it is all contained in the show building, I would assume the empty areas between the facade and the metalwork going up will become part of the queue etc.

    Yeah. I imagine it'll either be filled in or walled off. Hopefully the former.

    This is...intriguing. I know it's been mentioned to death that they have changed the plan for this ride since Kong opened. Anyone know what they might have added in terms of practical effects?
