The Latest on Super Nintendo World’s Construction at Universal’s Epic Universe

As the heat descends upon Central Florida, the construction over at Super Nintendo World in Universal’s Epic Universe is powering up like a Super Star! As cranes and construction crews busily transform the landscape into a vibrant, pixel-perfect paradise, anticipation builds for what promises to be a game-changing addition to Orlando’s theme park scene. Let’s warp into the latest updates and sneak peeks, thanks to photos by X User bioreconstruct, at the progress of this much-anticipated world.

Super Nintendo World will actually consist of two lands when it is completed: Super Mario Land and Donkey Kong Country. One of the central rides in Super Mario Land will be Yoshi’s Adventure. The recent photos show some impressive progress on this ride, with the Yoshi’s situated on the track ready to take riders on an epic adventure.

The theming on Yoshi’s Adventure is out of this world, with elements from the pyramids to the pirana plants being plucked directly from the Mario games!

No Mario Adventure would be complete without Bowser (yes we are looking at you, Super Mario Bros. 2), and progress on Bower’s Fortress is revealing how Universal is bringing this classic element to life.

And of course, we could not have a Super Nintendo World without Princess Peaches Castle!

Spinning over to Donkey Kong Country, the progress on Mine Cart Madness is pretty impressive since our last update. The barrel that was previously spotted off to the side has been installed on this jump-the-tracks coaster, and most of the core ride elements appear to be nearing completion.

This second view demonstrates the scale of Donkey Kong Country. The two lands in Super Nintendo World will be connected via an internal walkway, with the main land portal providing access to both sections.
