Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge is the main attraction, it’s an augmented reality karting game inspired by Nintendo’s cult racing game license. The participants have on their eyes a virtual reality helmet displaying an alternative digital world with fantastic circuits, shells and well-known competitors that you have to send to the mat with the triggers on your steering wheel.

Unfortunately, while Nintendo and Universal are confident that this attraction will provide enough variety to keep people coming back, this is the only real sensational attraction in this Super Nintendo World. The Japanese park just has one more, a quieter Yoshi-themed adventure that hasn’t been announced for the United States.

Besides this augmented reality Mario Kart, the park invites you to stimulate your senses and spend money. You can buy a Power-Up Band, which helps families earn points and unlock “extra-special interactions” with surprise blocks and costumed characters. Plus, if the attraction’s headset isn’t enough, you can purchase a pair of interactive glasses to “discover a new dimension of Super Nintendo World.” You can buy food at the Toadstool CafĂ©, where Chef Toad serves delicious small dishes, such as Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots, Piranha Plant Caprese or the Mario Bacon Cheeseburger. And there is also the 1-Up Factory, a shop that sells hats and other stuffed animals.

Super Nintendo World is a collaboration between Nintendo and Universal Creative. Mario creator and great Nintendo visionary, Shigeru Miyamoto, was involved in the design and conception of the original Japanese park, which his American counterpart draws heavily from. A second American park is under construction for Universal Studios Florida.
