Major construction is now complete, and Universal Studios Beijing is on pace and on budget for its anticipated opening this spring, resort officials have announced.
Universal Studios Beijing posted a new teaser video to its Chinese social media channels this week, showing off some of the new rides and features in the park.
"Thanks to the diligence from all constructors and creatives in achieving the construction completion, we are now entering the stage of full operations preparations, to ensure a one-of-a-kind experience for guests from China and beyond as we prepare for the opening in 2021," General manager Tom Mehrmann said.
"We put significant thought into the experiences we create for our guests, and we look forward to creating unique and contemporary experiences for millions of guests. We are presently working hard on delivering on our promise, ensuring guests will have the best time of their lives."
Universal Beijing Resort previewed the park during the BRTV (Beijing Radio and Television) Global New Year Ice and Snow Night Gala, thanking the more than 100,000 construction workers who have worked on the project.
"Under the guidance and strong support of the Beijing Municipal Party Committee and the Municipal Government, after several years of high-level and high-quality construction work, the major construction of Universal Studios Beijing theme park and resort’s facilities have been completed,” Wang Tayi, General Manager of Beijing International Resort Co., Ltd., said. "With the joint efforts of the China-US team on construction, design, engineering and technological innovations, Universal Beijing Resort is committed to creating a destination as a new landmark of Beijing, with rich cultural heritage and promoting the integrative development of culture and tourism."
Here is the line-up for Universal Studios Beijing, which is expected to be open by May.
