About Super Nintendo World

Universal Studios Hollywood

As guests enter Super Nintendo World through the iconic green pipe, they embark on a journey filled with exploration, discovery, and play. The adventure begins at Peach’s Castle, a majestic structure that sets the stage for the captivating Mushroom Kingdom. The land itself immerses guests into the 360-degree world of Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach, making them an integral part of the beloved universe.

One of the standout attractions in Super Nintendo World is the groundbreaking “Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge” ride. This technologically advanced experience seamlessly combines augmented reality (AR) with projection mapping and physical set pieces along a moving ride track. Guests are seated in stadium-style, four-seat vehicles, equipped with head-mounted AR goggles that bring the courses to life. As part of Team Mario, riders navigate underwater and sky-high tracks, collecting digital coins and competing for the Golden Cup. The ride’s unique interactive elements and multiple outcomes make it an unforgettable adventure for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Super Nintendo World isn’t just about thrilling rides; it’s a land of interactive gameplay and delightful dining experiences. Mount Beanpole stands tall as a landmark and serves as the entry queue for “Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge,” immersing guests in the excitement from the very beginning. Bowser’s Castle, adorned with a magnificent sculpture of the mighty Bowser himself, houses the signature ride and offers a glimpse into Bowser’s plan to defeat Team Mario.

To enhance the experience, visitors can don a Power-Up Band™—a state-of-the-art wristband that syncs with Universal Studios Hollywood’s app. These wearable devices allow guests to level up their adventure, collect digital coins, and participate in Key Challenges throughout the land. When riding “Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge,” tapping the Power-Up Band on the ride vehicle’s steering wheel keeps track of coins collected and ranks riders against friends and family. The Power-Up Band also unlocks special interactions when meeting Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach.

In addition to the exhilarating attractions, Super Nintendo World offers various interactive areas where guests can punch ? Blocks to collect digital coins and explore the land’s hidden gems using augmented reality technology. And when hunger strikes, the Toadstool Café is ready to satisfy appetites with a delectable menu perfected by Chef Toad. From Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots to Super Mushroom Soup and Princess Peach Cupcakes, the restaurant offers a range of mouthwatering dishes inspired by the Mushroom Kingdom.
