Universal Studios Hollywood continues its annual Lunar New Year tradition with a celebratory “Year of the Ram” event featuring a special Mandarin-speaking MEGATRON character. This special limited time event runs from Friday, February 13 through Saturday, February 28, 2015.
A new Art Deco-inspired grand courtyard situated at the heart of the theme park will bring Universal Plaza to life – where guests will be ushered in to celebrate the “Year of the Ram” under a curtain of customary red Chinese lanterns and a stunning all-new Plum Blossom Arch. The polygon-shaped piazza will also display a dozen lampposts each featuring the twelve zodiac animal signs along with three symbolic attributes.
A highlight of the Lunar New Year program will be the Mandarin-speaking MEGATRON, who will engage guests in conversation that is characteristic of his DECEPTICON TRANSFORMER’s persona.
Favorite Universal characters, including Curious George and Woody and Winnie Woodpecker, will join the celebration dressed in traditional Chinese attire to meet guests and take memorable photos in front of a customary Chinese gong. Asian-inspired treats along with traditional music, resonating throughout the Plaza, will help in commemorating the festive Lunar New Year.
Lunar New Year is included in the price of admission to Universal Studios Hollywood.
