Beijing's Tongzhou district announced recently that Universal Studios Beijing will open in May and that a trial version of the theme park's app is now available online with details about the shows and themed rides in the park.

The park, located in eastern Beijing, will feature seven themed lands, including The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minion Land and Hollywood. It is expected to receive more than 10 million tourists per year.

Once it opens, tourists will be able to navigate to the main entrance, dubbed Universal CityWalk Beijing, by taking the Beijing Subway Batong Line or subway Line 7. 

The trial version of the app includes a list of themed attractions that will be unveiled at Beijing Universal Resort, along with its entertainment and performance projects. 

Facilities such as stores and restaurants in the park can also be reached in the app.

Construction of the park started in August 2018. It is the biggest joint venture in Beijing involving a foreign company.
