A new area, Super Nintendo World, is scheduled to open at three Universal resorts: Orlando, Hollywood, and Japan. The Orlando area is scheduled to be the biggest of the three but will most likely be the last to open. It will feature a Mario Kart simulator, a Donkey Kong roller coaster, and possibly a Yoshi-themed ride as well.

The Orlando location was originally intended to replace Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone in Universal Studios Florida, however, in August, Universal announced a new Orlando park called Epic Universe. This sparked speculation that the new area would be there.

Universal, as well as Nintendo, have stated that the land’s elements will be interactive, which would bring theme parks to a whole new level for families. This concept is not entirely new, as Universal has used it in other parks. It has been confirmed that there will be wristbands similar to the ones at Universal’s Volcano Bay sold within the park. These bands will track your score on games throughout the land. It is even possible that the Mario Kart ride will have a system of score-keeping where points will be backed up to the wristband.
