Visitors will be able to explore different areas of the park and participate in various activities while enjoying the thrilling rides and attractions.

Chief Operations Officer of Universal Parks Pacific Rim Tom Merhmann explained the excitement of games and ride that will be part of Super Nintendo World. “Obviously the big attraction is the Mario Kart ride. But we also have an entire land that is filled with incredible kinetic energy which is a series of interactives. There’s actually a story. Once you go through Peach’s castle,  you learn that Bowser Junior has been a bad boy and has stolen Peach’s golden mushroom and our challenge should we choose to accept it, is to get it back.”

The event also included a presentation with an exciting dance along with Tom Merhmann talking about the synergy between Universal Studios and Nintendo. Nintendo founder Shigeru Miyamoto along with Merhmann officially opened Super Nintendo World with a fireworks display.
