Construction work on the second phase of the Universal Resort Beijing is set to begin by 2025.

The expansion of the resort, which first opened in September 2021, will form part of the Chinese government's wider action plan to invest in Beijing's tourism infrastructure and to develop the city into a global destination.

The second phase will add around 2.2sq km to the total park area at Universal Beijing and will include up to five new hotels.

As a result, the second phase is set to more than double the current size of the 1.8sq km park.

Further details of the new areas, attractions and rides will be revealed at a later date.

The park currently has seven themed lands – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Transformers Metrobase, Kung Fu Panda Land, Hollywood, WaterWorld, Minion Land and Jurassic World Isla Nubar.

Across the seven zones, Universal Beijing houses a total of 37 rides and attractions.

In addition, the park features a Universal City Walk and two hotels.

Universal Beijing Resort is owned by Beijing International Resort Company, a joint venture between Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Company and Universal Parks & Resorts, a business unit of Comcast NBC Universal.

The news about the second phase comes four months after Universal Parks & Resorts underwent a rebrand, which renamed Comcast NBC Universal's theme park arm as Universal Destinations & Experiences, to "better reflect" the changing nature of its offerings.
