Just as Universal Studios Hollywood was celebrating its opening of the Mario-themed park, it was announced that another iteration will be heading to Orlando.
Announced by Universal Parks & Resorts chairman and CEO Mark Woodbury during last week's grand opening celebration of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood last week,
the Orlando location will be the third in the world (with the first two being in Japan and California).
Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood has been described as a “innovative, immersive, and highly-anticipated themed land."
The brand's distinctive green pipe entryway welcomes visitors into the vivid country, where they are immediately submerged in the lively, 360-degree universe of the adored characters.
Real-time standings are displayed on screens throughout the nation, much like in video games. The experience is completed by additional interactive activities and Toadstool Café, the region's iconic eatery.
No announcement on whether attractions from the Hollywood or Japan version will be replicated in Orlando has been made, but with the available land space more than one is anticipated.
Super Nintendo World will be a part of the new, eagerly awaited Epic Universe park when it opens in Florida in 2025.
The news comes at a time of great expansion for the company that includes an upcoming Minion Land set to open summer 2023 at Universal Orlando Resort, an upcoming theme park in Texas, and a year-round immersive horror attraction in Las Vegas.
