Super Mario land will open at Universal Orlando as part of Epic Universe expansion that’s set to double park’s size – The Sun

UNIVERSAL Orlando will open a Super Nintendo World land at their new Epic Universe attraction, it has been announced.

The Mario-themed land has already been revealed in Japan, where it will open in Osaka later this year.

The new land in Orlando was announced yesterday, and will be the park's "fourth gate" along with Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay, according to Biz Journals.

While images of the new land are yet to be revealed ahead of the opening of Epic Universe in 2023, it is expected to have similar attractions to the park in Japan.

Previous reports of the Japanese attraction revealed that fans of the Nintendo games will be able to play Yoshi's Adventures, a ride which takes passengers along a track with views of the park as well as animatronic scenes.

Guests will sit in Yoshi-themed cars as they travel throughout the land.



A Mario Kart racing attraction and a Donkey Kong ride are also expected.

Bowser's Castle and Princess Peach's Castle can be seen in mock-ups along with the classic piranha plants, moving platforms and collectable coins.

A Toadstool Cafe will allow guests to eat inside the attraction.

Senior vice president and chief creative officer with Universal Creative, Thierry Coup, previously said: "Think of Super Nintendo World as a life-size, living video game where you become one of the characters. You’re not just playing the game; you’re living the game, you’re living the adventure."

The next Nintendo land is likely to open in Universal Studios Hollywood, with Orlando opening after that.

The Super Nintendo theme park in Japan will let guests use power up bands to compete with each other in the park.

A £3.5 billion theme park is opening in the UK  in 2024, and will be just 20 minutes from central London by train.

You could also get paid £3,000 to test theme parks across the US.
