We will soon be seeing Nintendo-themed attractions at Universal Studios theme parks!
Universal Parks & Resorts recently announced that they will be partnering with Nintendo and integrating aspects of the gaming giant’s world into their parks.
Universal said the following in regard to the partnership in their official PR release:
Universal theme parks offer incredibly popular, innovative themed family entertainment experiences based on compelling stories and characters – using powerful storytelling and innovative technology. Nintendo has created remarkable and imaginative worlds filled with captivating stories and beloved characters.
Now, for the first time, those stories and characters will be brought to life in entirely new ways—only at Universal theme parks.
There is no word yet on how they plan to integrate the world of Nintendo into the theme parks, but the potential is there for something truly incredible.
It is quite possible that they will transform an entire section of one of their existing theme parks into a Nintendo area, similar to what they did with the absolutely incredible Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. Just imagine an interactive Super Mario Bros. ride, a Mario Kart themed go-kart track, or an interactive Legend of Zelda journey.
And if any Universal Studios higher-ups in development are reading this right now, just know that I am available to think up some more amazing ideas for you! …Paid, naturally.
