  2. 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.

  4. 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.

    It's time for another big Universal Studios Beijing update!

    First, some new construction photos:









    More significantly, we have a new look at the layout of the park's lands and a detailed layout of the park's "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade" area:



    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.

    The white area in the center of the park is a lagoon.

    Let's take a closer look at the layout for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade:

    The light blue is what you have to pay attention to. Hogsmeade Village, Flight of the Hippogriff and the ride building for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey can all be clearly identified. This layout is nearly identical to the layouts of the the same areas at Universal's parks in Orlando, Hollywood, and Osaka.



    Next, let's take a look at a different view of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade's layout:



    The area is divided into three sections. The middle and biggest section is where Hogsmeade Village, Flight of the Hippogriff and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey will be located. The two smaller sections on either side are designated for future expansions to the land. What could those future expansions be? Based on the size of the bottom section and its location relative to the rest of the land, I believe that section can fit the same roller coaster being built right now at Islands of Adventure in Orlando. As for the smaller expansion section at the top, it could potentially be the future train station for the Hogwarts Express train ride, but I don't know if the train could get around the park all the way over to the second planned theme park where Diagon Alley would likely be located.

    Lastly, the environmental impact report was recently released for the river that just like Orlando will run through Universal Beijing Resort. Below is the layout and concept art of the river:

    Someone who visited the construction site the other day posted a few photos online and I'm not entirely sure but I believe these photos show the new transit station which is now beginning to rise above ground...





    More interestingly though is another photo that this person shared of the layout of Universal Beijing Resort:



    What's significant in this image is that I notice two very distinct changes to the design. First, the waterpark which is to the left of CityWalk now has a grey rectangle over part of it. This is speculation but I wonder if the grey rectangle is a building and so the waterpark will be partially indoors. Second, and even more significant is at the theme park itself next to Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmead was originally a large area with nothing which would be used for a future expansion. Now in this new layout something appears to be there. The location in relation to Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmead is exactly where the new roller coaster is being built at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando. This is total speculation and not official, but I suspect that the new coaster coming to Islands of Adventure is also coming to Universal Studios Beijing and will be opening at the same time as everything else, not as an eventual expansion.

    Comparison:
