    This morning the first piece of seven pieces of acrylic glass was hoisted into place at the whale shark tank. The piece of acrylic is 3.3 meters long, about 8 meters high, 65 centimeters thick and weighs 20 tons. Once all seven pieces are put into place over the next three days, the underwater viewing window will have a length of about 24 meters.

    A new Chinese article posted this schematic of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade:



    This schematic came straight from AECOM's offices in Orlando. In the same article, a landscape architect for AECOM confirms that Universal Studios Beijing will have a Hollywood area and a Kung Fu Panda area.

    As trial operations continue so do the photos:

    Landscaping around the kiddie ride area is almost complete but the little coaster and jumping tower aren't open yet. Notice the Steel Dolphin coaster barn has been covered by banners.





    A large viewing area along the blue fence is set up for guests to watch shows taking place in the canal - this will be especially popular once the nighttime water parade begins





    Notice on the bridge the transition from the tundra to a warmer climate





    New banners before the dolphin show starts





    The park's signature volcano stands out from everything else in the area





    Inside the volcano the whale sharks and manta rays still haven't arrived but mermaids and a sea turtle has and the restaurant is now open









    Entrance to the Cable Car ride on the polar side





    The outdoor seating at the Sand Castle Restaurant hasn't been set up yet



    Scenic views of the polar mountain as the landscaping comes in place of the scaffolding

    New satellite imagery from two weeks ago shows us what's being worked on at the park. The outlines of the buildings for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Kung Fu Panda, and the Jurassic World dark ride can all be pinpointed in this imagery:



    In this overview of the entire resort work can be seen on the transit station, the first parking garage, major roads, and the central river:

    New satellite imagery from a few weeks ago shows that some progress has been made, particularly at one of the new hotels where multiple cranes can be seen, a new road is being built, and the small plots of land in the middle of the lake are now islands.

    New aerial photo showing the construction progress on Ocean Flower Island's Fairytale theme park - note all the waterslide pieces nearby for the island's waterpark:



    Reminder of what the completed Fairytale theme park will look like:

    Today I came across this image showing the design of one of Universal Beijing's most unique and highly anticipated rides - the Jurassic World-themed roller coaster:



    For the first time this image gives a good look at the backside of this ride. If you look closely you can see that the coaster track does in fact go into the glass dome. In addition to being part of the coaster experience the glass dome may also serve other purposes but that is unclear right now. The flat building part of this image in the front is likely to be a restaurant.

    The elaborate rockwork that this ride will feature will be visible across many areas of the park and will serve to at least some degree as one of the park's centerpieces, comparable even to Krakatau volcano at Universal's Volcano Bay in Orlando.

    Note that since this image was posted online the design of this attraction may have changed...
