Universal Studios Beijing – Beijing, China

Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement – Theme Park

Despite the pandemic and perhaps the world’s most restrictive lockdown, after 20 years of preparation and planning, the highly anticipated Universal Studios Beijing Theme Park Resort opened in October 2021 as a watershed moment in the Chinese theme park industry. Its ambition, scale and uniform level of excellence have set a new, international standard for theme park destination development and guest experience.

Created under the internal guideline of “global vision, international standards, distinctive Chinese features, and future-oriented goals,” the core Universal Beijing Resort covers 400 hectares and is part of a larger destination development (1,200 hectares) in the Tongzhou Cultural Tourism Zone.

Universal Beijing Resort features Universal Studios Beijing theme park, Universal CityWalk Beijing, and two hotels, including Universal Studios Grand Hotel, the firstever Universal-themed resort hotel.

The park includes seven highly-themed, immersive lands with more than 37 cutting edge attractions, rides, and landmarks;

24 shows and performances; 60 food & beverage venues and 30 retail stores – plus specially created experiences designed to honor and reflect China’s rich cultural heritage. Universal Studios Beijing is also the world’s first theme park resort destination to earn LEED Gold certification.

The Beijing destination blends Eastern and Western cultures both literally and metaphorically in its partnerships, design, attractions, and environmental elements. This is a deep rethinking and culturally appropriate reinvention of the Universal brand. The mix includes several al-new attractions and immersive lands unique to China, along with select evergreen, global fanfavorite Universal rides, shows, attractions and characters (such as Harry Potter, Hollywood, Water World).

Among these are Transformers Metrobase, the first Transformers-themed land in the world, featuring an expanded and completely fictionalized story with China as the backdrop; Jurassic World Isla Nublar, the legendary film franchise brought to life in a fully realized environment that includes the Jurassic World Adventure ride; Minion Land, the largest Minion-themed experience in the world, where guests meet characters and explore iconic locations from the blockbuster films. Also of note are the Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness, Universal’s first Kung Fu Panda-themed land, entirely indoors and rich in traditional Chinese cultural elements; and the outstanding “Untrainable” live show based on How to Train Your Dragon, which uses a superb combination of large scale puppetry, projections, animation, and live action stunts.

The parkwide entertainment program differentiates itself by integrating top Chinese Is such as league of legends in the parade and Honor of Kings Heroes LIVE. The live entertainment is performed almost entirely by the cast in Chinese, and features prominently in the programming to meet the Chinese audience preference for live shows. In bespoke merchandise, the Minions have a highly successful line inspired by the Chinese zodiac. In walkaround entertainment, the Transformers More than Meets the Eye featuring Megatron has been a viral hit, with live, stand-up comedy style interaction.

Overall, Universal Studios Beijing has gone all-out to localize and cater to the Chinese audience throughout the property, including retail brands with local appeal, and a strong e-commerce presence targeting the Chinese Gen-Z market.

Universal Studios Beijing has also taken the integration of technology to a new level with wide use of biometrics and facial recognition (Al) for entry (speed gates) and ticketing/ payments providing a seamless experience throughout the resort, and 5G technology.
