This is Mario's amusement park that will open in Japan in February
After a "real" image taken with an amusement park drone inspired by the world of Super Mario leaked and Nintendo opens as part of Universal Studios Japan, the Japanese company has rushed to release official images and a video, already with authentic locations, of the place. And the truth is that the result is impressive, a colorful 3D incarnation of the more familiar and pop side of the adventures of the plumber.
Nintendo has also announced the park's official opening date: next February 4 at Universal Studios in Osaka . In the video that is broadcasting together with the first images you can see a general panorama of the enclosure, but also some of the attractions. For example, Bowser's castle and its imposing statue of the villain that welcomes visitors, or the Mario Kart roller coaster that mixes traditional roller coaster and augmented reality.

Along with the attractions themselves, Nintendo is developing a series of ingredients to enjoy the park that go a step beyond what is usual in this type of venue. For example, a mobile application linked to a bracelet that will offer information about the location of the virtual adventure that the entrance to the park implies, and different challenges that must be carried out during the visit. It is planned to manufacture six different models of this bracelet.
On the other hand, a video has come to light that shows what this 'Mario Kart' could be like with cars on rails, and that applies the latest technologies in roller coasters to the Nintendo theme: roads that diverge or the aforementioned augmented reality They are the ones that will give originality to this experiment which, if it works, is only the beginning. Because an expansion of the park dedicated to the world of Donkey Kong is already under construction.
