Universal Studios Beijing will be completed by the end of 2020, with trial operations set to begin in the first half of next year, local officials have reported.
China Daily quotes a Tongzhou official as saying that the park's main structure has been completed and that ride installation should be finished by the end of the year. The Universal Beijing Resort will include the theme park, a CityWalk, and two resort hotels.
A waterway will connect the hotels with the theme park and CityWalk, as is the case at the Universal Orlando Resort. That waterway is expected to be complete by November, the official reported.
The resort last month announced its CityWalk lineup, which includes Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, and Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar as well as Asia's largest Peet’s Coffee and Chinese restaurant chain Grandma's Home. The Universal Studios Beijing theme park will feature five themed lands: Transformers: Metrobase, Jurassic World Isla Nublar, Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness, Minion Land, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
An official opening date for the resort and the park will be announced next year. Universal Studios Beijing will be Universal's sixth theme park worldwide, following Universal Studios in Hollywood, Florida, Japan and Singapore, plus Islands of Adventure in Orlando. A seventh park, Universal's Epic Universe, has been announced but is now on hold at Universal Orlando Resort.Tweet
