The ride originally operated as Hangman at Opryland USA from 1995 to 1997, when it was dismantled and sold due to the closure of the park. It subsequently reopened at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in May 1998. Alongside Boomerang Coast to Coaster it was one of the first roller coasters at the park.
On August 5, 2016, Six Flags announced that Kong would be one of two rides to receive a virtual reality upgrade for Fright Fest, the other being Demon at Six Flags Great America. The ride would show a film called Rage of the Gargoyles and it was being billed as "the world's first fully immersive gaming experience". Kong would also receive some refurbished track and new restraints.
