Super Nintendo World At Universal Studios Hollywood Opens In 2023

Ready to jump into your very own Mario Kart?


Though it was never officially announced, anyone who has been to Universal Studios Hollywood in the last year has undoubtedly seen Super Nintendo World, a new themed area in the park, which is well under construction. Now, we have a better idea of when it will open.

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced its Super Nintendo World will open next year, in 2023. That comes on the heels of Universal Studios Japan opening its version in 2021. "The U.S. debut of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood will transport theme park guests and Nintendo fans into the world of Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach to become part of their compelling universe," a press release reads.

If you still can't wait that long and traveling to Japan isn't feasible, the park's Feature Presentation shop will be getting a Super Nintendo World makeover soon, offering the chance to buy land-themed merchandise before it launches.

Universal Studios Hollywood won't be home to the only version of the land in the United States, though. Eventually, there will be a Super Nintendo World at Universal's third theme park in Florida, Epic Universe. The park is currently in development. The original plan was to open the park in 2023, but that was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Per the Orlando Sentinel, the new plan is for the park to launch in early 2025.
