Universal Studios Beijing starts trial operations

Universal Studios' theme park in Beijing has started trial operations after months of delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Universal Studios Beijing was initially scheduled to open in spring this year. The operator has announced the resort will officially open on September 20.

Only invited people were allowed into the theme park on Wednesday.

The operator says there are 37 attractions on the site area of about 400 hectares. Some Chinese media that had previously covered the resort reported about an attraction based on a movie featuring China, as well as a food court.

The operator says it will take thorough measures to prevent infections, such as asking visitors to submit personal information when they buy tickets. It will also check visitors' body temperature and ask them to show health codes to prove they have no risk of infection when they enter the park.
