Universal Beijing Resort in China is preparing to embark on the second phase of its construction programme.

The project will add around 2.2sq km to the total park area and will include up to five new hotels.

This means the second phase will more than double the current size of the 1.8sq km park.

The announcement comes less than three months after the park opened its doors to the public, becoming the fifth Universal Studios-branded theme park in the world – and the seventh Universal-built park overall.

The park 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.
