Super Nintendo World officially opened on Feb. 17, being the first to jump into the United States.

Super Nintendo World, the innovative, immersive and highly-anticipated themed land opened at Universal Studios Hollywood in California, according to the official Nintendo website. 

It will be filled with vibrant colors within a newly expanded area. It will feature the Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge ride inside of Mushroom Kingdom, along with themed dining at the Toadstool Cafe and shopping at the 1-UP Factory retail store. 

In addition, to unlock more interactive play at Super Nintendo World, purchasing a Power-Up Band is now an option, according to the official Universal Studios Hollywood website.

It can keep score throughout the land as challenges are completed and Bowser Jr. is defeated. It can also track as digital coins are collected, in addition to other features. 

There are many rides to choose from at the park, one of them being Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge. 

To get to the ride, park goers must pass through Bowser’s Castle. The queue winds through different corridors and showcases a collection of trophies and Bowser’s plans to defeat Team Mario in the upcoming race. It is a traditional racing coaster and is also a reality shooter game, according to the official CNBC website.
