Kong arrives at West Midland Safari Park

The latest ride is themed on the popular titan gorilla.

This colorful new addition to the park’s ride line-up is set to be one for the whole family to enjoy.

The ride is themed to the popular King Kong franchise, which is one of the world’s most famous movie icons that has spawned films, books, video games and even theme park rides like King Kong: 360 3-D in Universal Studios Hollywood.

Kong is a 16 seater Disk’O flat ride from the Italian ride manufacturer; Zamperla. Their portfolio for the UK theme parks has been greatly expanded in recent years including the likes of Hero at Flamingo Land and Avatar Airbender at Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s Nickelodeon Land.

Kong will spin and roll along a curved track from side-to-side in a ‘U’ shape, and this proves for an exhilarating ride experience that packs in a great amount of “airtime” into each ride. This new addition follows the foot steps of another new attraction, The Land of the Living Dinosaurs, which opened earlier this year featuring up close encounters with dinosaurs in a heavily themed new exhibit.

It has become quite a firm favorite for a theme park in the UK to add to its existing ride line up as the Disk-o ride offers that exhilarating experience and a unique sensation, that is fun for the entire family to enjoy.

Other examples of this ride in the UK include Disko at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach and Pirates Cove at Gulliver’s World in Warrington.

The team here at Airgates feels like this is a nice new ride for the whole family to enjoy and that it is good to see continued investment in the Theme Park side of West Midland Safari Park and may it continue. We look forward to visiting in the near future.
