Is There a Mario Theme Park in US?

Super Nintendo World Hollywood

Super Nintendo World is a Mario themed park in Hollywood, California. It’s part of the Universal Studios Hollywood experience. This location opened on February 17, 2023. Mario creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, was heavily involved in the design of the area and attractions. We’re not complaining, but it would have been amazing if it opened on March 10, Mario Day, instead.

Although smaller than Super Nintendo World in Japan, Mario themed area is located in the park’s Lower Lot, wedged between the Jurassic World area and Transformers: The Ride.


1UP Factory
A store selling various Mario and Nintendo-related merchandise.

Toadstool Cafe
A quick service restaurant themed after the Toad character, featuring Mario-inspired food and drinks.

Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge

Power-Up Band Key Challenges
An assortment of interactive mini-attractions where guests can interact with a Koopa Troopa, Piranha Plant, Goomba, and Thwomp. Winning at least three of these gives entry to a room where guests battle Bowser Jr. by moving in front of a motion-tracking video wall. These require the separately sold “Power Up Bands”.
