Universal Studios Beijing to Open in 2019

Today I was delighted to find this news article by Los Angeles Times about the new Universal Studios opening in Beijing in 2019. The project has been in development for quite some time and it is nice to see it finally getting a proper announcement. 
You may read the full article here: Universal Studios to open Beijing theme park in 2019
With the announcement and press conference, a concept art for the park has also been released and it contains some really interesting details. Let's take a look.

UPDATE: Thank you, Alain from Disney & More. I have updated the post with much clearer pictures.

This Week in USS #6: Two New Shows!

This week we checked out two new shows in the park!

Sept. 20 is the premiere of Sesame Street Musical "When I Grow Up". 
It was a very cheerful show, and younger guests seemed to love it. But for me, it was a bit disappointing. The show basically is just one song and is very much similar to the street performance version of the same song.
I hope that this is just a filler before the park gets its second actual musical. (How about the 30-version of Wicked, which was played at USJ for some time?)
 

Halloween Horror Nights 4 @ USS - Construction Update

Halloween Horror Nights returns this year with some truly disturbing themes!

Update 9/20:

This week, we noticed that flame effects have been added to the props in the New York Scare Zone.

New "Puss in Boots" Coaster in USS!

Update 9/20:

This week we have some interesting progress at the new attraction. It seems that exterior theming has begun! Look at the these castle wall bricks!

This Week in USS #5: Everything is going well!

There is a lot of development in the park during recent weeks!

On Sept. 20, a new stage musical named "When I Grow Up" will premiere at Pantages Theater.
It is sad to see Monster Rock's departure though, it was a great show.
