Everything To Know About SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™: Rides

To get to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ at Universal Studios Hollywood, you need to travel down to the Lower Lot. Visitors then enter the land through a Warp Pipe to transport you to all things Nintendo.

The Lower Lot area might be familiar to you as it’s home to Jurassic World – The Ride, Revenge of the Mummy – The Ride and TRANSFORMERS™: The Ride-3D. Now that we’re familiar with some of the nearby attractions let’s talk about the rides headed to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ in 2023.

Mario Kart™: Bowser’s Challenge

Play begins even before the race! In the Mario Kart™: Bowser's Challenge queue you'll tour Bowser’s iconic castle. As you prepare to face off on the track you’ll pass through the hall of medallions and trophies to the prized Golden Cup. Don’t forget to keep your eye out for his secret plan to defeat Team Mario in the queue.

Once you’re ready to race, put on a pair of augmented reality goggles and take your seat in a four-seater ride vehicle. Watch for the 3-2-1 countdown and be ready to battle Team Bowser on iconic Mario Kart™ courses alongside Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach. The ride itself is a combination of virtual reality with projection mapping and moving set pieces.

During the race, collect coins and throw shells to win the Golden Cup!
