The Donkey Kong Roller Coaster is shaping up to be one of the most exciting attractions in the soon-to-open Epic Universe theme park, set for 2025. The recent photos show that the large gold bricks at the top right of the coaster have had their scaffolding removed, revealing the progress that has been made on this much-anticipated ride.

One photo gives us an aerial view of the current theming of a wall at the roller coaster. The center area has been recently assembled, and it looks like it will be painted soon, adding to the vibrant and immersive world of Donkey Kong. The theming is certainly reminiscent of Donkey Kong!

Another exciting feature spotted in the photos is a barrel that riders will pass through on the lift hill. It’s positioned on a rectangular steel frame, ready to be lifted into place. This detail alone shows how much effort is going into making this ride a unique and thrilling experience, and is another element Donkey Kong fans will recognize from the video games!

What sets the Donkey Kong Roller Coaster apart is its design, which allows the vehicles to seemingly jump over broken track pieces. This mirrors the iconic gameplay of the Donkey Kong video games, where mine carts had to leap over gaps in the tracks. It’s sure to be a heart-pounding feature that makes riders feel like they’re part of the game.

The Donkey Kong Roller Coaster, or Mine Cart Madness, is just one part of the larger Super Nintendo World, which promises to bring our favorite video games to life. From the aerial views shared by bioreconstruct, it’s clear that this roller coaster is going to be a standout attraction. With innovative design and exciting theming, it’s sure to be a hit with both roller coaster enthusiasts and Nintendo fans!
