Universal Update: Super Nintendo World in Orlando
A recent announcement by Universal and Nintendo may give you the park you could only build in a computer console—right here in Orlando!
While it may still be too early to speculate, we can dream about the recent news from these two entertainment giants who inked a deal that deserves a massive “1up” for Orlando. Super Nintendo World is expected to become a reality both in Japan and the USA, where Universal Studios plans to create these fully-immersive “lands” nested within its theme parks. Initial reports state that this new theme park addition in Orlando will make Mario and his friends the focal point of the attractions—and we wouldn’t expect any less after the billions of dollars that these characters have generated for Nintendo over the past few decades.
Universal Studios Florida already enjoys a major draw of tourists thanks to not only its Harry Potter-themed lands, but also because it has been actively revamping, remodeling and re-imagining its theme park grounds—often replacing stagnant rides and attractions with newer concepts. This was recently the case with Skull Island: Reign of Kong which was added to Universal Islands of Adventures, right between Toon Lagoon and the Jurassic Park ride. We will keep you informed of new developments about Super Nintendo World on this blog, so keep checking back for updates.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium enjoys a fantastic location right down the road from Universal Studios, so when Super Nintendo World finally becomes a reality you will have a great place to stay after a long day at Universal Studios. And without question, our proximity to the theme park is complemented by the amazing restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues located throughout the International Drive tourist district. Are you ready to come to Orlando?
