Mario themed park in Japan turns the game into sensory reality


The long-awaited Super Nintendo World, modelled on levels in Nintendo’s Mario games, welcomes guests at Universal studios Japan in Osaka. The park which cost about $0.5 billion finally opened after Covid delays. This new Mario themed park has turned the game into reality.
The park boasts the world’s first interactive Mario Kart theme ride. Guests ride sporting an augmented reality headset attached to a red cap, challenge enemies and aim for the finish line with Mario and Peach.
Visitors are excited about a treasure hunt theme ride. Visitors get a chance to hang on to Yoshi as they search for Captain Toad and experience the view of Mushroom Kingdom from Mount Beanpole.
The world of Mario comes alive at Super Nintendo World. It offers an immersive game experience in which guests can compete against other gamers. Music from popular Mario games plays throughout the park and visitors can jump up, punch ‘question blocks’ and collect virtual coins through Power up bands.
In December, Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Super Mario Bros gave a virtual tour of the park. A person can engage himself in various smaller and bigger activities. If a person manages to get three keys, they can take on the final activity and that is a ‘battle with BowserJr’. The park is operating in the shadow of Covid-19. Its capacity is limited to 10,000 people. Guests are also asked to wear masks and adhere to social distancing. International travellers can not visit the park as Japan’s borders are still closed. State of emergency in Osaka was lifted earlier this month. Similar parks are being built in LA, Orlando and Singapore.
