In Donkey Kong Country, guests will be immersed in the land of Donkey Kong characters. Brian Robinson, Chief Creative Officer for Universal Creative, and the strategy design and development team for Universal Destinations and Experiences took the stage to set the scene for what people can expect when they enter Donkey Kong Country.

Gleaming in the distance, the Golden Temple awaits, our first indication of the wish fulfillment our land will deliver. And as our tropical exploration begins, we soon discover an immersive world of friends, of interactivity, and of games.
