    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!

    That video is very random.

    Hard to tell but it looks like it might have the power strip on the track like the other Mack suspended coasters.

    Just saw this and was about to post it here. Definitely looks like an Inverted Powered Coaster from Mack.
    I was actually kinda expecting a new-gen Vekoma Flyer for that attraction, but this could also turn out veeeery cool!

    We have vertical movement on the new Hulk Clone opening up at this park. Just a few small supports so far.

    The rough outline of the Hulk layout can be seen here. Cobra Roll to the right. Final helix area top left

    That first image is clipped from this overall image of the resort posted by Michael over at Themeparx

    It might just be the angle, but it looks like the drop out from the zero-g roll might be steeper than Hulk's?

    I wonder if they're keeping the tire launch or if they're switching to LSM like B&M did with Thunderbird.

    I’d imagine that since Hulk was in a time before B&M started pioneering their own launches (16 years before!), this Transformers coaster will have LSMs. Then again, I don’t know why they didn’t make the switch from tires to LSMs when Hulk had its track replaced in the 2016 season.

    I can't recall from the many discussions regarding the fabled Hulk clone - do we know if this is the same hardware that was intended for Universal Dubai (?), Or was hardware even built for that supposed ride?

    This is 100% a new ride. The track was at the B&M plant last year around the same time as Yukon Striker was. You can see it here in this pic from wild gravity travels painted black.
