The long-awaited Universal Beijing Resort will officially open for visitors on Sept 20 — one day before the Chinese traditional holiday Mid-Autumn Festival, announced by the resort on Monday.
Last week, the resort announced the start of trial operations on Sept 1, which has attracted huge attention among fans and members of the public who want to experience the park.
According to the announcement, epidemic control and prevention measures will be strictly followed during operation.
Located in the capital’s eastern district of Tongzhou, the venue comprises the Universal Studios theme park, Universal CityWalk Beijing and two hotels, along with 37 recreational facilities, themed attractions and dozens of food and beverage outlets.
The park features seven themed “lands”: Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness; Transformers Metrobase; Minion Land; The Wizarding World of Harry Potter; Jurassic World Isla Nublar; WaterWorld and Hollywood.
Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness, inspired by the DreamWorks Animation’s film franchise, is Universal’s first “land” with such a theme.
Especially, Universal CityWalk Beijing, home to dozens of shops, a cinema, many restaurants and a host of mobile food bars, will offer free admission for visitors after the official opening.
The venue is owned by Beijing International Resort Co, a joint venture between Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Co and Universal Parks & Resorts.
Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Co is a subsidiary of Beijing Tourism Group, one of the leading players in China’s tourism and hospitality sector.
The Beijing municipal government has offered support for the project’s facilities, with the aim of providing a high-end tourist landmark for the city.
Visitors can reach the venue’s main entrance, dubbed Universal CityWalk Beijing, by taking the Batong Line or Line 7 on the subway.
