Universal Beijing Resort has opened after two decades of delays and development.
The initial phase of the theme park opening includes Universal Studios and Universal CityWalk retail, dining and entertainment spaces, as well as the first-ever Universal-themed resort hotel and the first Nuo-branded resort hotel.
The park's themed areas include The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Transformers Metrobase, Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness, Hollywood, WaterWorld, Minion Land and Jurassic World Isla Nublar.
However, there's no point asking how to get to Sesame Street at this theme park. It's the first Universal site that doesn't have the licence to operate any Sesame Street themed rides or attractions.
Its Jurassic Park attraction includes a one-on-one interaction with a velociraptor and a restaurant called Hammonds.
Minion Land is much more relaxing, with a selection of rides for children and food options including baking and slushies.
The Flight of the Hippogriff ride is one of the key features of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and if that's not scary enough for you, there's also a Harry Potter choir.
The new Nuo Resort Hotel isn't necessarily something you'd expect to see at a theme park. Its retreat exterior doesn't quite match the relatively corporate looking interior design and aesthetics. However, it is obvious its influence comes from traditional Chinese opulence.
The 400-room hotel and spa looks to be directly aimed at the adult market, so begs the question, what about the kids? Perhaps the idea is for families with children who are old enough to head off to the park on their own, while their parents take some time out.
If you want the totally opposite vibe and are keen to live and breathe the Universal Studios experience, then the ultra family-friendly Universal Studios Grand Hotel may be more your cup of tea, or perhaps non-alcoholic cola.
Its atrium is lined with directors' chairs and mirrors complete with light bulb frames, and it's located right at the gates of the park. The hotel's website describes the experience as one of 'Hollywood glitz and glamour', so make sure you leave room in your bag for one of those personalised imitation Oscar awards.
Day passes to the theme park start at around NZ$70 and standard tooms at the Universal Studios Grand Hotel cost around NZ$350 per night.
In comparison, entry to Universal Studios in Hollywood starts at NZ$155 per day for non-Los Angeles residents. In Japan, Universal Studios Osaka costs around NZ$115 for a day pass.
