Super Nintendo World Opens At Universal Studios Hollywood On February 17, 2023

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that Super Nintendo World–the Nintendo-themed attraction at the theme park–will open on February 17, 2023. It’s been widely reported since this past summer that the park would hold a ribbon-cutting sometime in early 2023, and this announcement means it’s just a handful of weeks away.

In a release, the theme park also has been confirmed to feature–in addition to previously announced attractions–Nintendo-themed dining options at the Toadstool Cafe and shopping at the 1-Up Factory retail store. The cafe will “will serve a gourmet menu perfected by Chef Toad where he will greet guests upon entry” including “Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots, Super Mushroom Soup, Piranha Plant Caprese, Mario Bacon Cheeseburger, Luigi Pesto Chicken Burger, ? Block Tiramisu, and Princess Peach Cupcake.” The retail store will allow attendees to purchase collectible memorabilia featuring Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Bowser, some of which is already on sale at Universal Studios. Check out a teaser video for the park below.

Additionally, the park will feature Power-Up Bands, which are wristbands that sync with Universal Studios Hollywood’s app to “level-up the guest experience within the land and enhance its many interactive elements.” For example, the wearable will enable guests to collect digital coins and obtain keys after winning various challenges, which will “further enhance the kinetic experience within the land and immerse guests into the unique world of Super Mario.” You’ll also be able to punch your own ? blocks throughout the land.
