    Forgive me if there's a thread for this already, but it seems work is progressing on Universal's new park in Beijing. Here's the concept image from a few years ago:

    Here is some more concept art of the park:

    And the two most interesting pieces of concept art:

    It seems a Transformers themed Incredible Hulk clone is in the works and this is definitely in line with this video:



    As you can see there are several pieces of track labelled "SC" which stands for sitdown coaster. It's been a long time since B&M has produced one of these and it makes sense that they would be manufacturing it now with this park planned to open sometime next year. I think it'll be really cool to see a different take on Hulk and based on the concept art it should turn out really nice.

    Interestingly enough the other coaster track labelled "MC" or Mega Coaster is also headed to Beijing for Happy Valley's expansion.

    Also here is the current state of the park. They have a long way to go!

    Huge thanks to Themeparx for all of these photos.

    Also, I think this is now intended for 2020 according to Screamscape.

    The budget for this park has just shot up.

    Great stuff! Out of interest, is the park due to have a clone of Hulk at IOA, or did I imagine that? Very interesting decision if it is; Hulk at IOA will be 21 years old when this place opens and has already been refurbished once. Presumably it will have the new-style Hulk theming that came to IOA in 2016, unless it has different theming entirely.
    EDIT: Just saw the post above. A Transformers themed Hulk clone should be interesting.

    Interesting little image of a planned Jurassic Park/World ride at the new Universal Park.
    I could see this being a mack invert like Arthur or something similar to the setpoint flyers at IOA

    Oh yeah, that just screams Arthur/Dragon Gliders type coaster. They've got the big central atrium for it to do a lap of too!
