Get ready to bomb Bowser and his Koopalings with a bunch of shells, because an actual trip with Mario Kart is coming up Universal Studios Hollywood.
“Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge” will be the central attraction in the upcoming Super Nintendo World, which should now open in early 2023 (the latest update from the theme park was aimed at a wider window by 2023).
Like the version of the trip that debuted in Japan last year, the video game-inspired attraction will combine Mario’s colorful environments with digital screens and a bit of augmented reality magic. Each go-kart for four people will be equipped with augmented reality goggles: through them you will see the difficult part of the trip full of shells. As you move and rotate through the built scenes, you’ll catch the steering wheel and buttons that won’t control the physical vehicle, but will allow you to control and fire projectiles from your AR racer. You and the other three passengers in your go-kart – all of you will be replicas of Team Mario – will work together to collect enough coins to beat Team Bowser.
If you can’t imagine all this, the teaser below from Universal Studios Hollywood gives a much better feeling of how it all comes together.
Mario Carte: The Bowser Challenge will be the only ride in the themed land under construction; The Osaka Originator also includes a traditional dark Yoshi-themed attraction that won’t make the Universal City jump amusement park.
However, you will find many interactive areas, themed eateries and shopping when the main tube on the ground opens in 2023. Oh, and we mean this literally: You will enter through a green tube at the bottom of the park, tucked away behind Transformers and Jurassic world attractions.
