HOLLYWOOD-As the year of the dog descends upon the world, Universal Studios celebrates the Chinese New Year with Po, Tigress and Mr. Ping of “Kung Fu Panda” along with the minions and a mandarin speaking Megatron ringing in the new year from February 10 to February 25.
Guests will be able to enjoy the all new Jade Palace Performance Stage with an exciting “Dragon Wear Training Show” as amusement park attendees can join in the interactive martial arts demonstration with the Po and Tigress of the “Kung Fu Panda” franchise.
If creativity is what you crave, animators will be on hand throughout the day teaching guests how to draw various characters from “Kung Fu Panda.” As everyone works up an appetite, they can join Mr. Ping at Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop and feast on various Chinese delectable delights such as stir fried noodles and pot sticklers among other Asian delicacies.
The biggest excitement of all is the Mandarin speaking Megatron. Attendees will be given a chance to have their photos taken with Megatron. Also available for photos will be Po, Tigress and Mr. Ping. Not to be left out, the “Despicable Me” minions will also don their Chinese fashion for selfies with guests.
