Last year saw the opening of much-anticipated land at Universal Studios Japan, where guests could wander around the Mushroom Kingdom, explore Bowser’s Castle, join Mario Kart or go for a walk with Yoshi.
Theme park goers can also purchase special Power Up Straps that allow you to interact with the land, win coins, and discover the many hidden surprises in the park, so you really feel the same way. I feel like I’m immersed in a Super Mario game. (You can preview Guide to Super Nintendo World also).
However, it is the real-life Mario Kart ride that is the biggest highlight. Racers sit in life-size Mario Karts and race along, with high-tech effects that mean you can throw shells and knock your opponents down to claim the trophy. Each kart holds up to four riders, and you can take in some of your favorite tracks that you can also play in a real video game.
