    The design and planning stages for Universal Beijing Resort's first phase (2 hotels, parking garage, CityWalk, and Universal Studios theme park) has been completed and comprehensive construction is now in full swing!

    A new post online from China Metallurgical Group Corporation, the company building Universal Beijing, includes photos that show concept art and the layout for the Transformers-themed area of the theme park. I believe these photos were taken at the park's onsite offices.

    Unfortunately the resolution on all of these images are very low but we see most notably the roller coaster and dark ride, plus plenty of future expansion space. Note that any of the following layout and concept art is potentially out of date.

    Layout:

    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:



    Concept to reality in the making:

    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...

    Construction of the transit station being built at Universal Beijing is coming along nicely. The main frame of the steel wavy design is expected to be completed on October 20 and the transit station is scheduled to begin trial operations at the end of 2019. The transit station is connected to CityWalk which leads to the theme parks, waterpark, and hotels.

  7. Michael:
    Thank you for the confirmation. If you or anybody else reading this is able to, I have two questions that I would love to have answered:


    1. In addition to Minions, what other IPs are going to be featured in the Z7 area? Trolls? Hello Kitty? Spongebob?

    2. How many rides will be in the Jurassic World area (Z2)?
    1.) 2 Rides are planned.

    2.) Not that I can remember specifically but there are 2 rides and a show.

  9. Michael:

    Based on everything that has been posted on this thread so far, my best guess for the identity of each of the areas is as follows:

    Z1: Entrance Plaza/Hollywood
    Z2: Jurassic World
    Z3: WaterWorld
    Z4: Kung Fu Panda
    Z5: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade
    Z6: Transformers
    Z7: Minions plus additional IPs
    Z8: Support Facilities, Warehouses, etc.
    This matches the drawings I worked on.
