The new immersive Super Nintendo World will be a multi-level themed land. Guests will enter Yoshi’s Adventure on the ground floor of the area. The ride’s queue will bring them to the 2nd floor where they’ll board a variety of colorful Yoshi vehicles for their adventure. Who will they find along the way?
The Adventure Begins!
Yoshi’s Adventure starts in the beautifully animated station situated below the highest point of Super Nintendo World: the Goal Pole!
While the picture shows Yoshis making their way back to the station, it also introduces us to the ride’s first of many Mushroom Kingdom residents, the infamous Piranha Plant!
This relatively new character was introduced in 2013’s Super Mario 3D World and is an interactive audio animatronic that guests can trigger using buttons found in their ride vehicles.
Eggs for Enemies
Using three Yoshi eggs found in the ride vehicles, guests may trigger animatronic effects.
Into the Warp Pipe!
Yoshi’s Adventure has a small indoor section representing a nighttime scene. Fans of the franchise will appreciate the throwback to Yoshi’s Island.
Wow, it’s Yoshi!
The indoor scene for Yoshi’s Adventure shows us the original Yoshi with Baby Mario on his back! Magikoopa is in pursuit with Pink Yoshi and Baby Peach following behind!
We encounter multiple Pokeys on our adventure. While awfully cute, don’t touch them!
Palm trees are the threshold to even more adventure in the Mario Universe, as a major Donkey Kong roller coaster is expected for the land’s phase two expansion in the near future.
Donkey Kong Country
Guests will take the warp pipe from Mushroom Kingdom to Donkey Kong Country for a thrilling mine cart coaster through the jungle. For now, it will serve as social distancing overflow queue.
Balloon Baby Yoshi
First appearing in New Super Mario Bros. U, Balloon Baby Yoshi can be found floating around the Yoshi nursery!
Baby Yoshis are everywhere!
Look closely at the right side of the picture for the super cute accessibility vehicle!
Captain Toad is reporting for duty! Riders will get a glimpse of the character found in 2014’s Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker.
Super Nintendo World wouldn’t be complete without coins for the taking (not really, they’re mounted).
Princess Peach’s Castle!
In the background you’ll find Princess Peach’s Castle, the gateway to Super Nintendo World!
Yoshi first appeared in 1990’s Super Mario World, where we also found out berries from this tree are his favorite food.
A thwomp is blocking your exit! Proceed with caution!
All the Yoshis!

We can’t wait!
We can’t wait to travel to Universal Studios Japan to get this point of view for ourselves! Those able to go soon, the land opens February 4th!
Super Nintendo World looks amazing so far! We’re excited to see this new source material for more Universal projects and can’t wait to see what else is in store in the future.
