When any Universal fan sees snow in a photo of Jurassic Park, they may need to take a second look. With Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood being the two main Universal Resorts Guests think of, the idea of a winter wonderland covering the area seems impossible.
I am not a meteorologist, but to have inches of snow in Orlando or L.A. does seem like something that would very likely not happen, and luckily for global warming, it did not! As we recently reported, Universal Beijing Resort, the newest addition to the Universal family, has just experienced its first snowfall and then snowstorm since opening. The Resort had multiple setbacks when it came to opening for fans due to the pandemic pushing back their opening date. However, it is not finally opened!
A couple of days ago, Beijing was under a warning for an extreme snowstorm alert, and it definitely hit. We saw photos of Universal Beijing covered in a sea of white, and in some of the photos, it did look pretty stunning. Unfortunately, this meant that all outdoor attractions had to shut down, but the indoor ones were all still fully operational. Now that more Universal fans have continued to see photos of what Universal looks like with real snow on the floor, they cannot get enough!
Tommy Hawkins (@tommyhawkins) was shocked to see the theme park in the snow, especially Jurassic World!
Wasn’t prepared for Jurassic World with snow

Poggers Duck (@PoggersDuck) replied to the Tweet with a desire to see the theme park in real life! It seems that Tommy may have thought this was Universal Japan, but nevertheless, he clearly loved the look of snow.

Andy DiGenova (@AndyDiGenova) saw photos and thought it looked “epic.” As you may imagine, Waterworld is not performed in certain conditions once the temperature drops below a certain number.

The reactions to the snowy theme park go on and on, and I have even caught a few who thought it was a photoshopped photo of Orlando, which was fun to see. Today, the weather sits around 49 degrees in Beijing which is reason enough to wear a jacket, but it seems that snow is out of the forecast.
The Universal Beijing Resort is home to seven distinct lands featuring franchises such as Harry Potter, Transformers, Jurassic World, and more. While some lands such as The Wizarding World of Harry Potter are the same as you will see them in other Universal theme parks, some lands are new and exciting.
As we have discussed, in Universal Beijing Resort’s Jurassic World land, Guests are immersed into Isla Nublar. Isla Nublar is home to the Jurassic World Adventure attraction, which can only be found at the Universal Beijing Resort. The cutting-edge attraction has Guests being chased by the Indominos Rex from the Jurassic World film. It is unlike any of the other Jurassic World attractions found at other Universal theme parks.
After Universal Beijing, the next new Universal Resort to open will be Epic Universe in Orlando, Florida. At the moment, there is no exact timeline on when it will open, but it seems that that current goal is 2025.
What do you think of these snowy photos of Universal Beijing Resort?
