  1. Will it be the same coaster than the new one coming to Islands of Adventure?

  2. Do we know what kind of roller coaster the Jurassic-themed-coaster will be ? B&M flying according the concept art ?

    Hey Michael, new to the place and this is amazing! I'm actually going to live in Beijing for a while now, and my friend told me about this upcoming Universal Studio. Being a theme park lover myself, I could definitely run down to the construction site and snap some photos (I wish I had a drone though). And if you ever need some basic translation from the local news I could also help. The only update I can contribute right now is that metro Line 7 and extension of Line Batong, both of which will connect to the transit hub at the park, are slated to open by the end of 2019. Not sure if it will help with the construction in any meaningful way, but definitely better than the park waiting for the transit.

    Great new photos of Universal Studios Beijing especially this first photo of the work taking place on the Jurassic World-themed roller coaster. The big circular part is the base of the glass dome structure and the area to the left is where the coaster's signature mountain will rise.







    According to the article that these photos are from Universal Beijing Resort's general manager was quoted as saying the following (paraphrased translation):

    The development of Universal Beijing Resort has always been highly anticipated by the peers and consumers in China's tourism industry. As all projects progress smoothly according to the established schedule, we look forward to in the near future sharing more exciting milestones about Universal Beijing Resort. We have reason to believe that Universal Beijing Resort is bound to become a world-class theme park entertainment destination with leading standards in China and around the world.

    Yesterday morning, January 4, Universal Beijing celebrated the successful hoisting of the first steel structural column for the indoor Kung Fu Panda area!







    Also yesterday was the opening day for the Beijing Tongzhou District Sixth People's Congress Fifth Meeting during which it was revealed that the first phase of Universal Beijing Theme Park and Resort is set to open in 2021.

    Yesterday morning Su Guobin, deputy head of Tongzhou District in Beijing, which is the area where Universal Studios is located, visited the the theme park's construction site to see if everything is going according to schedule because there was some concern about whether or not it would open as planned in 2020. Wang He, the deputy director of Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Company, which owns Universal Beijing Resort along with Comcast, toured the site with Su and said that he is "very confident that the first phase of the Universal Beijing Theme Park and Resort will open as scheduled."







    The first photo I believe to be the foundation for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey's ride building but I am not sure and on the second two photos be sure to take a look at the images on the documents in their hands.

    New photos taken at the construction site







    Last but not least the transit station is coming along nicely



    Also, the China Construction Second Engineering Bureau just confirmed that Universal Studios had recently gone vertical which themeparX had already shared over a week ago: http://www.cscec2baz.com.cn/?content/news/288/index.htm

    A fantastic brand new construction update with both on the ground and aerial photos:

    Universal Studios Beijing has gone vertical!





    I can't pinpoint the location of where within the park these photos were taken - luckily new aerial photos have been posted online so is anyone able to match the location?







    Reminder of the resort's layout (updated version) for reference



    UPDATE:

    Additional photos have been posted online of the park going vertical:

    New photos from this morning taken from the north side of the construction site facing south so the areas of the park that are the closest are the Transformers area and Kung Fu Panda area. Cranes right now located at the center of Jurassic World, over by the Minions-themed area and then more cranes in the vicinity of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade. Pile drivers can be seen near the entrance/hotel area and more pile drivers can be seen in the support facilities/back of house area.
