Today marked the Q4 2020 Comcast Corporation Earnings Conference Call. In this call, they revealed that the Universal theme parks were able to break even largely thanks to Universal Studios Japan and Universal Orlando Resort which have both operated successfully under limited capacity. Additionally, they said that Universal Studios Beijing is set to open on time despite delays from the ongoing pandemic.
Universal Beijing is set to open a strategic 7 months ahead of the Winter Olympics that will be held in Beijing in 2022.
Universal Beijing Resort
We have not had very many updates for the new theme park from Universal and were curious if the theme park would open on time given the state of the world right now. Thankfully Universal has now affirmed that the new theme park resort will open on time in May of this year. We do not have an official date for the grand opening as of yet but anticipate that coming very soon.
Universal has pulled out all the stops for its brand new them park resort in China. Including full recreations of Isla Nublar from the Jurassic World franchise that will be filled with dinosaurs. There will also be a brand new attraction created with the help of Steven Spielberg, and much more!
Notably absent for this new theme park is Super Nintendo World. Super Nintendo World expansions are coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Universal Orlando Resort very soon. But due to the local lack of brand awareness of Nintendo and its properties in China the new resort will not be receiving this innovative new land.
Without the inclusion of Super Nintendo World, Universal has had to innovate to create unique lands to help anchor Universal Beijing Resort. The park will include a section dedicated to Dreamwork’s Kung-Fu Panda movies, and well as Transformers Metrobase- A completely original land based on the popular Transformers IP.
As mentioned, Universal Beijing Resort will open a strategic 7 months from when Beijing is set to help the Winter Olympics in 2022. This will hopefully bring Guests to the new park just after it has enough time to find its feet after opening.
