    New photos and video of the construction site:












    Also just to make a couple of things clear there's been an article going around with some misinterpreted information regarding the naming of certain parts of Universal Beijing Resort. Recently when Universal launched the official website it clearly said "Universal Beijing Resort" so people thought that meant that the theme park which they had been calling "Universal Studios Beijing" is now officially called "Universal Beijing Resort." This is not true not only has the name "Universal Beijing Resort" been official for years but that's not the name of the theme park. The theme park itself is still Universal Studios Beijing. The entire complex is "Universal Beijing Resort." Also when this article was translated from Chinese (http://bj.people.com.cn/n2/2019/0221/c233080-32663811.html) to English (http://www.china.org.cn/china/2019-02/22/content_74493750.htm) and then picked up by more English news sites (https://blooloop.com/link/universal-beijing-resort-theme-park/) it referred to the dining, retail and entertainment district as "City Avenue" as opposed to "CityWalk." Like at the other Universals around the world it will be called "CityWalk" but it is written in Chinese as "城市大道" which literally translates to "City Avenue." Writing it in Chinese as City Avenue is just to make it more clear to the Chinese visitors but for consistent branding it will be called in English "CityWalk" which is proven here https://corporate.comcast.com/news-information/news-feed/universal-theme-park-and-resort-planned-for-beijing and here https://www.universalbeijingresort.com/en/news/2.

    So just to give an overview:

    The entire complex is named 北京环球度假区 = Universal Beijing Resort
    Within the complex is a theme park named 北京环球影城 = Universal Studios Beijing
    Also within the complex is a retail, dining and entertainment district named 城市大道 = CityWalk

    New rendering (?) of interior and surroundings of the metro station. The escalator has a longer than usual buffering area, not sure if it's simply a rendering glitch or some new design to improve safety during peak hours.

  7. 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.
