Universal Beijing Resort remains on target to open in 2021 despite the attractions industry to be temporarily put on hold due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
Tom Mehrmann, Universal Beijing Resort’s general manager, believes there will be a positive outcome on the horizon.
In January 2020, Universal Beijing Resort announced that construction was about halfway completed and would finish in 2020. Despite taking the recommended preventative measures to protect the health and safety of employees, the site is still on track for a grand opening in 2021.
Talking to the Global Association for the Attractions Industry (IAAPA), Menrmann said: “We have full confidence in global tourism markets and the theme park industry. We firmly believe that only through close-knit cooperation can the whole industry fight through the hard time and emerge stronger as a result.
“Construction of Universal Beijing Resort has resumed and is progressing smoothly, undergoing guidance from related government authorities and with their support. Our rides, shows, attractions, and other facilities are now under installation and testing, Merhmann added.
