Figured since the news wasn't separated by WDW/Universal I would post this here, forgive the typos, it's from Wiki:

Quote :
In August, 2008, Universal announced that instead of replacing the attraction with a new concept, It would instead be rebuilt as a new experience[3]titled King Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World, also known as The New King Kong Encounter. The attraction will have Tour guests don 4-D glasses while the tram enters a sound stage. Once inside, they will view a recreation of Skull Island, and the tram will be attacked by prehistoric bats before encountering Kong on the "island". Guets will then witness a new element recreating the fight between Kong and a T-Rex and, finally, the Scene, smiliar to the old attraction, will have the Tram enter 1933 New York City and encounter King Kong in a similar manner as the original attraction, with added HD effects. It will be an homage to Peter Jackson's 2005 King Kong film (which was made by Universal themselves, unlike the 1976 film, made by Paramount Pictures - although Universal owns the rights to that film). The ride will open in Summer, 2010.

Just wanted to say that I was listening to a podcast that interviews writers and they had a panel that Peter Jackson (and James Cameron) did at last years Comic Con. PJ confirmed in the interview that this is a real thing, it's based off his Kong. It's using the 3D technology that was developed for Avatar and it's a motion based simulator ala Star Tours at the Studios. He said things like you'll be able to feel Kong's breath on you when you're nearby him and be sprayed with various kinds of "goo's" throughout the ride.

More proof but bad news, as this is looking like for now at least, that this is only a Hollywood thing. Also, why is that dumbass in the middle looking straight while everyone else is looking to the side?
