Universal Studios Japan has announced that the long-awaited Grand Opening of the Super Nintendo World Theme Park will be held on February 4, 2021.
According to a report from Japan, the park is home to the recreation of Bowser Castle, with its magnificent statues on the walls and paintings by King Coupa himself, and the challenge of Mario Kart: Coupa, the park’s leading roller coaster. There is. The twist here is that the rider wears a special Mario hat with a visor that adds AR and projection mapping technology and is in Mario Cart Race when Shell and Mario, Luigi and Peach are racing together. Is to feel. You are.
The park’s official website also has details on several other vehicles. In Yoshi’s adventure, a young rider can ride Yoshi in a treasure hunt looking for a captain to find three mysterious eggs that promise “a spectacular view of the Mushroom Kingdom.” The previously published power-up band will link to a smartphone that will allow visitors to take on the challenge of having to regain the golden mushrooms that Bowser Jr took.
Not surprisingly, the big elephant in the room is an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but executive producer Thomas Geraghty says the park monitors social distance measurements and disinfects all equipment, including Mario Kart. It is said that the media gathered at the public event was reassured, and every time I used the coaster headset. However, due to the pandemic, the Japanese border is currently closed to foreign tourists, so you may have to wait for a while before visiting. The government reportedly wants tourists to fully reopen in the spring of 2021.
