Universal Parks is Holding Our Dreams
Nintendo welcomes you back into open arms as they open a theme park for your inner child!
The partnership between Universal and Nintendo was announced in 2015, providing no further information on the matter of the park. Fortunately, Nintendo finally satisfied our curiosity with a press release on 11.29:
“Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world. ” – Nintendo
This breathtaking experience will be built over the next few years at the Universal Studios in Japan and Hollywood, and at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida!
Along with the press release, Nintendo released the following video of Mark Woodbury and king nerd, Shigeru Miyamoto, detailing their vision for the park.
If that doesn’t have you hyperventilating with excitement on the floor, then maybe the list of the goals will do the trick:
- These will be expansive, immersive and interactive. They will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants.
- Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life.
- There will be something for everyone – regardless of their age or gaming experience level.
- Planning and creative work on these areas is well underway; they will open separately over the next several years.
Currently, there is no news of which specific Nintendo areas we can expect, nor which park will open first.
Perhaps we will see Luigi’s Mansion come to life, with ghosts behind every turn; or maybe a massive Go-cart arena that rushes you through your favorite tracks! Instead of the famous Cinderella Castle, imagine little children begging to go to Hyrule Castle to be swept up in the majesty of Princess Zelda.
What kind of attractions would you drag your friends or family to go see? Are you going to be a bigger fan than your children? Lets us hear your ideas!
