Meanwhile, work still continues on the lagoon side of the footprint.

Worker here are hard at work preparing the new footers to receive the support columns.

As track continues to be erected, this lone support should find a friend soon

Then making its way back home to the launch tube that look so foreign standing by itself.

The work is still moving at a feverish pace to prepare the attraction to open. Crews are everywhere around the site.

The exteriors of the attraction is really taking shape, as it moves from more a building feel into something that you would stumble upon in the jungle.

I would expect to see ride vehicles gracing the exterior of the attraction with their presence very soon; however, I doubt that this would happen during park hours.universal orlando construction skull island kong - 002

While, next door at the studios a storm of construction is happening there as well.
