Universal Studios Teams Up With Nintendo To Bring Nintendo Game Themed Attractions To Its Parks

May 8, 2015


Universal Studios and Nintendo have just announced a partnership to bring Nintendo game themed rides and attractions to Universal Studios amusement parks. Will there be a Mario Kart ride?! There better be. Plus Metroid, Super Mario Bros, and a whole section dedicated to the Zelda franchise. Could you imagine getting to explore Hyrule Castle, Kakariko Village or The Lost Woods? I could cry.

The immersive experiences will include major attractions at Universal's theme parks and will feature Nintendo's most famous characters and games," stated an official release. To be clear, this isn't a full-on Nintendo theme park. Rather, Universal theme parks will create "spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo's wildly popular games, characters and worlds." In short, Nintendo-themed attractions in Universal parks.

Wait, is this -- is this what it feels like to be excited about something? I don't think I've felt this way since my 8th birthday. "18th?" EIGHTH. I got the G.I. Joe Cobra Terror Drome playset. Excitement since then has been few and far between except when friends do something stupid and hurt or embarrass themselves. "You need help." No, I need a friend to miserably crash-and-burn trying to talk to a girl at the bar tonight.

Thanks to Cameron, who agrees dreams really do come true. Nightmares too.

    I think Nintendo should make their own theme park but they probably wouldn't have the funds for it.

    mario kart land
    nothing but kart racing and flaming heaps of wreckage as far as the eye can see
    supplying the banana peels and turtle shells alone would drive them to extinction and disrupt the food chain

    THATS a world i want to live in.
    god damn!
    lets do it!

    They probably would if they made enough Amiibos for the neckbeards who are willing to pay 500% for them on eBay!

    So... a Pokemon petting corral and a Pin The Tail On The Goomba booth. Or... OOR a working power suit from Metroid and a full scale reproduction of Tourian! Either way, I've already booked a flight to and a hotel in Anaheim. "Nonrefundable?" Yep, I got a great deal. "Universal Studios is in Orlando." ...What's in Anaheim? "Three hundred and fifty thousand people who wish they lived in Santa Barbara."
