Universal Reveal Details About Super Nintendo World At Universal Epic Universe

Universal Epic Universe, Universal’s fourth theme park in Orlando, is set to open in 2025 and will consist of five different unique worlds: Celestial Park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic, Dark Universe (based on the classic Universal Monsters), How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk and SUPER NINTENDO WORLD.

Guests will enter Super Nintendo World through a portal from Celestial Park and take an escalator up into the land. You’ll first step into Super Mario Land and you’ll want to look at everything, in every direction, all at once. Everything in SUPER NINTENDO WORLD feels alive — because so much of it is constantly in motion. You’ll pop into the land outside of Peach’s Castle.
