A larger Super Nintendo World with three rides is coming to Universal Orlando Resort next year as part of its new Epic Universe theme park. 

Epic Universe’s Super Nintendo World (Universal)

In a Thursday press release, Universal unveiled new details and concept art for the land, which was both the first to be confirmed for inclusion in Epic Universe and the only one of its lands that has existing versions in other Universal parks. (You can read our review of the Universal Hollywood version here.)

Orlando’s Super Nintendo World will more closely resemble the land as it exists in Universal Studios Japan. When it opens in 2025 with Epic Universe, it will feature three rides: Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge, a dark ride featuring augmented reality headsets; Yoshi’s Adventure, a family-friendly Omnimover-style attraction; and Mine Cart Madness, a “Donkey Kong”-themed roller coaster where guests will feel like they’re jumping over gaps in the track, just like the mine cart segments from many “Donkey Kong” games.

The first two rides will be contained in the Super Mario Land section of the larger Super Nintendo World, alongside the Toadstool Cafe restaurant, the Yoshi’s Snack Island and Turbo Boost Treats walk-up dining locations, and two retail stores: the 1-UP Factory and Mario Motors. This section will also contain character greetings for Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad. 

Mine Cart Madness will be a part of the smaller Donkey Kong Country section of the land. According to Universal’s press release, this section will also include a “selection of tropical menu and merchandise offerings in the middle of the jungle,” for which details will revealed later.

Both sections will make use of the Power-Up Band wearable seen in both previous editions of Super Nintendo World. The band — which currently costs $40 at Universal Hollywood — can be utilized for interactive minigames around the land, including by “punching” Mario’s iconic question mark blocks to collect digital coins.  

Thursday’s announcements are a part of deeper dives into each of Epic Universe’s lands, following previous reveals of How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk and the park’s hub, Celestial Park. Future reveals should offer more details on Dark Universe, themed around Universal’s classic monster movies, and the Ministry of Magic, ahead of Epic Universe’s opening in 2025.
