“All of these efforts are focused on the continuous refinement of the visitor experience after the grand opening”Tom Mehrmann, General Manager of the Theme Park and Resort Management branch of Beijing International Resort Co., Ltd
Mehrmann has stated the pressure closed test at this stage is “critical” and the park will lead up towards the grand opening. Ensuring the premise that the operation is ready to achieve Universal’s consistent high-quality service in all directions. The Beijing resort also notes no opening dates or ticket information have been released. Including no tickets have been sold to the general public and information for ticket pricing. Everything is just pure speculation at this point.
Somehow as guests can buy the so-called “trial operation” experience ticket. It’s basically like a 3rd party paying or a “internal ticket” that is pre-sale on the market. Universal made sure for their guests to be cautious for the relevant risks if they do get this type of ticket.
