Epic Universe Super Nintendo World Rides and Attractions

We are very excited to learn that Super Nintendo World will feature 3 attractions! We love Nintendo World Hollywood but having these 2 extra attractions in Orlando will make the Nintendo World experience that much better.

Super Nintendo World Rides and Attractions

  • Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge
  • Yoshi’s Adventure
  • Donkey Kong: Mine Cart Madness
  • Power-Up Games

Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge – An interactive dark ride that combines real physical sets, screens, and augmented reality visors. Riders will race through Mario Kart courses and collect coins throughout the ride.

  • Minimum Height: 40 inches (102 centimeters)

Yoshi’s Adventure – This family-friendly omnimover ride takes riders on a scenic tour of the Mushroom Kingdom. Riders will also need to press buttons throughout the ride to win and complete a task for Captain Toad

  • Minimum Height: 36 inches (92 centimeters) Children under 48 inches will need supervisor

Donkey Kong: Mine Cart Madness – A roller coaster that will feature indoor and outdoor segments, where the runaway mine cart will appear to jump over gaps in the track! Riders will encounter multiple characters from the Donkey Kong video game series

Power-Up Games – Power-Up Bands elevate your experience from simply riding attractions to becoming an interactive part of the park. These wearable devices let you collect digital coins and keys throughout the land by participating in fun challenges like punching Goombas or defeating Koopa Troopas. By tapping your band, you can track your score on the Mario Kart ride and even unlock a final showdown with Bowser Jr.! With the band, every area of Super Nintendo World becomes a game to play.

Universal Super Nintendo World Orlando Dining & Shops

Fuel up with some Mario-themed treats in Super Nintendo World!

Toadstool Cafe – This will be the main dining location in Super Nintendo World. It will be very similar to Hollywood’s Toadstool Cafe. You can get burgers, salads, fries, desserts, and more – but most importantly themed around Nintendo classics and characters. We loved Toadstool in Hollywood and nearly ate the whole menu.

There will also be a few snack stands in Super Nintendo World, one being Yoshi Snack Island, which has had incredible snacks in the Japanese version and Turbo Boost Treats which will have themed drinks and snacks too. We cannot wait to see what these new food booths will bring to the land.

There will also be a tropical themed menu coming to Donkey Kong Country, but those details have yet to be released.

• 1-UP Factory and Mario Motors: Guests can shop for souvenirs, apparel, toys and more inspired by their favorite Super Mario characters and adventures within these retail locations
