Work continues on Universal's global theme park projects despite COVID-19 pandemic
Universal's global construction projects are continuing and are on schedule inspite of the outbreak

Universal has revealed that it's continuing work on its Super Nintendo expansion in Japan, its new theme park in Orlando and its Beijing theme park despite the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

Universal will not welcome visitors to any of its resorts until at least April, but an update from Universal Parks and Resorts chair and CEO, Tom Williams, says the construction work is continuing.

Reported in the Orlando Business Journal, the letter from Williams to its employees said that construction around the world was unaffected by the outbreak.

Universal's Epic Universe theme park will open in 2023, with construction heaving already started on the project.

Super Nintendo World has been scheduled to open before the now-delayed Tokyo Olympics in July. Construction has continued however so its opening shouldn't be affected by the outbreak.

Universal Beijing is also on course despite the China outbreak. Set to open next year, the park will be Universal's largest and will feature seven themed lands based on some of its biggest IPs.

"Our construction projects around the globe – Super Nintendo World in Osaka and Hollywood, Universal’s Epic Universe in Orlando and Universal Beijing all remain active and on track under protocols established by government officials and with their support," said Williams.

At present, Universal's Orlando and Hollywood resorts in the US will remain closed until 19 April. Universal Japan is currently scheduled to reopen on 29 March, while Universal Singapore at Resorts World Sentosa remains open with all indoor and outdoor shows closed until at least 27 March.
