Super Nintendo World has been under construction on Universal Studios Hollywood’s lower lot for some time and now the park has set an opening date. People will officially be able to walk through the green warp pipe into the land on February 17, 2023.

The land’s centerpiece is Bowser’s Castle that will be home to the Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge, just like in Tokyo. The land will also feature interactive elements accessed with a Power-Up Band which will keep track of player’s scores throughout their visit when linked to the Universal Hollywood app.

There will be a dining location called Toadstool Cafe with menu items including Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots, Super Mushroom Soup, Piranha Plant Caprese, Mario Bacon Cheeseburger, Luigi Pesto Chicken Burger, Question-Block Tiramisu, and Princess Peach Cupcake. And of corse there will be a store. It’s called the 1-UP Factory.

Who else is excited to enter the world of Mario?
