Super Nintendo World Confirmed For Universal Orlando’s New Theme Park

| Last updated 


Mamma mia! Universal Orlando is about to get even more full of fun, with your favourite Nintendo characters due to populate a fourth thrilling theme park location.

After months of keeping hush-hush, Universal Orlando has confirmed a new park is on the way, bringing visitors a taste of ‘Nintendo’s most iconic locations and experiences’.


Comcast executives have announced this ‘fourth gate’ based on Nintendo characters will open its Orlando doors in 2023, based at a 750-acre (304-hectare) site just a few short miles away from the current Universal Orlando property.

As reported by USA Today, this park is part of a wider expansion that will see the Orlando resort double in size.

The first Nintendo park will debut this year in Osaka, Japan, before openings in California and Orlando. A Singapore location is also anticipated to be on the (Pokémon) cards.


Senior vice president and chief creative officer at Universal Creative, Thierry Coup, has made the following statement:

You’re not just playing the game; you’re living the game, you’re living the adventure.

Nintendo’s most iconic locations and experiences will be brought to life, including Mushroom Kingdom, Peach’s Castle, an incredible Mario Kart ride, Bowser’s Castle – and more.


Thanks to this new park, more than 14,000 workers will be hired, adding to Universal Orlando’s existing 25,000-strong labour force. They will reportedly receive a starting minimum wage of $15 per hour.


In addition, it’s believed this new attraction will draw millions more visitors to the resort, following in the magical money-making footsteps of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
