Universal's next theme park will soft-open to guests sometime next spring, officials in China said today.
The news service Xinhua reports that officials with the culture and tourism management commission of Beijing's Tongzhou District said that Universal Studios Beijing will open for trial operations in the spring of 2021. A previous report last month estimated that the soft opening would begin sometime in the first half of the year.
Universal Studios Beijing will be Universal's largest single theme park and offer seven themed lands: Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness, Transformers: Metrobase, Minion Land, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade, Jurassic World Isla Nublar, WaterWorld, and Hollywood Boulevard. It will be Universal's sixth theme park, following Universal Studios in Hollywood, Florida, Japan (Osaka), and Singapore, plus Islands of Adventure in Orlando. Universal last year announced Universal's Epic Universe in Orlando as its seventh theme park worldwide, but plans for that park have been paused due to the pandemic.
Universal has not yet announced an official opening date for Universal Studios Beijing. The park revealed the line-up for its CityWalk dining and entertainment district earlier this summer.Tweet
