Beijing resumed normalcy on Monday after more than a month of pandemic-related restrictions. The Universal Beijing Resort said today that it will reopen on June 15 in stages. The resort’s website stated in a letter headed “Restart the blockbuster fun” that online ticket sales will resume on June 11 — one day after the premiere of Universal/Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion in China.
The resort contains themed zones such as The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minion Land, and Jurassic World Isla Nublar, as well as a CityWalk and two hotels. It first opened in September 2021 and was temporarily closed in May due to an increase in Covid cases in the capital.
The Universal Studios Grand Hotel and NUO Hotel, as well as Universal CityWalk Beijing, will open to the public on June 14. On the 15th, the theme park reopens for the season.
All will be at 75 percent capacity, with guests needed to present a negative NAT test result within 72 hours of arrival. Temperature checks will be in place, and guests are encouraged to follow Team Member instructions and pandemic prevention recommendations during their visit, which include wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, and implementing personal protection measures.
While the resort claimed it will “pay careful attention” to the pandemic control situation and “assess and change operating arrangements in a timely manner according to government laws,” some venues may be inaccessible in the early stages.
China has a zero-Covid policy, but limitations in large cities are increasingly being eased. According to Bloomberg, 18 of the country’s 31 mainland provinces had no instances in the previous week, and no province had an average of more than 20 cases per day.
Despite the fact that Shanghai’s heavy lockdown has ended, the Shanghai Disney Resort posted a “friendly reminder” on Tuesday that its park and hotels are still closed, with no official reopening date.
