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 inside SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™.
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.

Everything to Know About SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™: Food
What fuels our favorite Nintendo characters? Some of this we’ve seen play out on the screen for decades, but now it’s time to taste-test the real life recipes.
You’re not imagining it! Step inside Toadstool Cafe where Chef Toad treats you to fun, tasty dishes. You’ll enjoy the playful scenery of the Mushroom Kingdom from the window and there’s even a spot where you can watch the Toad Chefs create your meal.In order to eat at Toadstool Cafe, you’ll need to make a reservation. However, the only way to make a reservation is once you’re within the land. You’ll want to head to Toadstool Cafe and speak with a staff member at the entrance. They’ll get your name, phone number and how many people are in your party. Once a reservation becomes available, you’ll receive a text message. You’ll want to make sure you are checked-in within 15 minutes of receiving the message. Once you’re checked in, you’ll wait to be seated at Toadstool Cafe. In rare cases when the land isn’t busy, you might be able to be seated immediately. It never hurts to ask!
We sampled some of the creative dishes of Mushroom Kingdom during our recent visits:
- Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots
- Toadstool Souvenir Soup Bowl
- Mario Bacon Cheeseburger. The bun has a mustache and a teeny Mario hat on top!
- Chef Toad’s Short Rib Special
