New images reveal entire Super Nintendo World theme park attraction opening next year with Mario-themed rides

THE newest images of the Nintendo Theme Park have been released ahead of its opening next year.

The new attraction based on the Super Mario games hopes to open in Spring 2021, ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, after its launch was delayed due to the pandemic.

Revealed by local media, the new images reveal the new land including Peach's Castle and Bowsers Castle.

Guests will enter through a drainpipe, with the huge land featuring the iconic mushrooms and piranha plants scattered across the park along with Toad's House.

Fans of the games will be able to play Yoshi's Adventures, an omnimover-style ride (used by Disney rides such as Haunted Mansion and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster) which takes passengers along a track with views of the park as well as animatronic scenes.

Guests will sit in Yoshi-themed cars as they travel throughout the land.

There will also be a real-life Mario kart ride where you can race your friends, although how it works is yet to be revealed.

While in the park, guests will play Super Mario in real life using "power-up bands".

The bands will track and sync activities while walking around the park, letting guests collect coins and compete with other people.

The bands appear to have six options based on the characters – Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Toad and Yoshi.

The app will show visitors where to find coins – and hit a real-life question block – as well as feature a map of the attractions.

After creating a profile, fans of the games can then try and beat each other.

Last year, chairman and CEO of Universal Parks & Resorts Tom Williams explained that the scores could even be sent back to the Nintendo game console to build up for another visit to the park.

Earlier this year, the park opened a Mario cafe and shop ahead of the launch.

It is the first Mario Cafe & Store in the world which will have exclusive snacks and souvenirs.
