The New Mario theme park will be opening soon in the US. The first location will be Universal Studios Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Previously, a Japanese counterpart opened in 2021 in Osaka.
Last week, Universal Studios Hollywood announced the official opening date plus a trailer to tease fans about what might happen at the new fantasy theme park. This is also the Mario-inspired theme park’s official US debut. Visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood will get a chance to experience all the fun and colors of this Mario world with all the familiar characters including Mario, Luigi and Peach and features that we are already used to in several video games.
A Mario Kart-inspired ride called Bowser’s Challenge will be available that allows visitors to race against the baddies with our main protagonists. Augmented reality goggles will be worn by riders and take them to the marvel Mushroom Kingdom courses. It would definitely be a great and outstanding ride of your life. Visitors might also purchase Power Up bands to keep track of your game and unlock more character interactions.
A Mario-themed cafe and restaurant called Toadstool Cafe is going to be serving several interesting and magical beverages and dishes. What do you expect to see in a Mario-inspired cafe? There must be mushrooms! The cool dishes that this cafe is serving are Luigi Pesto Chicken Burger, ? Black Tiramisu, Princess Peach Cupcake, Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots, Piranha Plant Caprese, Mario Bacon Cheeseburger and last but not least, Super Mushroom Soup. You might grow in height, weight and gain power after finishing these dishes (maybe!).
A merch store is also essential to every theme park. There, it is called the 1-UP Factory that sells themed clothes, character plushies, stuffed toys and many other souvenirs that kids and adults will all love. Also, in this section, you might also meet with several mascots including Toad, Peach, Mario, Luigi… And you might freely take multiple photos with them as memories.
The counterpart in Japan is already well-received and attracts many visitors when they come to Universal Studios Japan, Osaka. Super Mario has been one of the most popular game franchises in this country. Nintendo and Universal are planning to expand this theme and their next location will be Orlando, Florida. The next park is planned to open in 2023 but got rescheduled until 2025. Meanwhile, the movie adaptation Super Mario Bros. Movie starring Chris Pratt is premiering on April 7, 2023.
