Imo you'd be best off diving straight in and buying a 4ft. I have a King and he's so active I've upgraded to a 4ft which I'm currently kitting out for him. I can't speak for your snake, but I've found Kings to be mostly active snakes who enjoy a good roam about, if you can offer more space, why not?

PS; For a size 'guide', I always go by 1/2 the snakes length and then add on 1/2 of that on top... if that's makes sense (it does in my head) so for example a 4ft snake would be suitable for a 3ft vivarium.. and a 6ft snake would be fine in a 4 1/2 ft vivarium, etc, etc. Works for me... !!
