  1. Is there any possibility that Beijing park will have the "Hagrid's magical creature motorbike coaster" ride instead of the older one?

    New photo from the snow-covered construction site on February 14 - it'll be fun to see a Wizarding World of Harry Potter covered in real snow in a few years! I believe the steel structure on the left is the ride building for Transformers: The Ride 3D.



    As a bonus here's recently posted concept art of the Universal-branded hotel that will be at the theme park's entrance:



    Also for any Weibo users Universal Beijing Resort now has an official account! The page right now has minimal content and no posts. This account was formally someone else's account - you can view the many random posts that this account has liked over the past few years which includes a lot of cute cat photos - https://www.weibo.com/u/3937775216

    Universal has launched the official Universal Beijing Resort website! So far nothing new and exciting is on the website it's mainly just placeholder images, news that has already been posted on this thread and the same concept art of the theme park that they've been using for the past five years.

    New photos of the north part of Universal Studios Beijing showing the steel structures going up on the Kung Fu Panda area, Jurassic World dark ride building, and Transformers: The Ride 3D

    New satellite imagery captured on January 10 gives us a detailed look at the progress and layout of Universal Beijing - I labeled some of the highlights:





    A view of the entire resort - note that though I labeled the waterpark and second theme park those two projects are not being built yet:




  7. Glad it helps. It’s just over a week or so till the Spring festival,and it looks like the construction will continue throughout the holiday which normally lasts three weeks for construction workers (they will enjoy triple pay, at least the law says so). This is quite rare for a project this size. My guess is they are really pushing for a late 2021 opening to take advantage of the tourist influx brought by the Winter Olympic in Feb 2022.

    Thank you for the post! I think you're correct and the trusses are actually being raised on the Jurassic World dark ride building but I'm not 100% sure. In the photo you found it also looks like the ride buildings for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Transformers: The Ride 3D have begun to go vertical.

    According to this blogger, http://m.blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_752deabf0102ydg9.html#page=3, the steel structure just lifted is of either Jurassic World or Minions (construction bid #2) . Kung Fu Panda is part of bid #3. The blogger didn’t cite any sources, but the tenderer for bid #3 does confirm their work on Kung Fu Panda and Waterworld. http://www.chinaonebuild.com/templates/content/index.aspx?nodeid=40&page=ContentPage&contentid=2550

    Below is an supposedly recent aerial shot over the park. The entire site seems to be covered wherever possible to reduce dust blown up into the air.
