I think the show building will house the load/unload, some queue, and on the second level one show scene.

Anyway, I'm taking a bet this is opening in 2024 because they're doing fabrication for this and EU at the same time and the themed elements won't be ready till then.

That and the fact that the land has yet to properly see its expected attendance.

Or, and I know this may hurt to hear, what if Universal can also artificially prolong construction to stretch building costs over multiple years :grin:.

Also known as 'Doing a Disney'
Lets hope they have enough of a soul not to do that

Don't think this has been posted before but this is the best (all be in blurry) view I have seen of DK construction - from March 22.

How long is the Donkey Kong Coaster experience going to be? Not seeing much space unless I'm missing something?

It probably will move slow and have some animatronics/figures in indoor segments. It’s not quite a regular roller coaster, not a dark ride. Kinda in between.
I understand this is supposed to be a family coaster, but this sounds pretty underwhelming. It sounds like it would be on Hippogriff level of "thrills".
