Super Nintendo World opens in Japan after Covid delays

A theme park dedicated to Nintendo's famous Super Mario World has opened in Japan, nearly a year after it was originally due to welcome guests. The park is modelled on levels in Nintendo's Mario games, the first of which was released in 1985 and followed the adventures of a plumber and his brother. One of the most popular rides in the new theme park will feature a Mario Kart race, which visitors will ride sporting an augmented reality headset attached to a red cap. The park itself is a gaming experience, with visitors encouraged to buy wristbands to collect keys, redeem coins, play mini-games around the land and even team up with other visitors via a smartphone app. Three more Super Nintendo World parks are being built at Universal Studios in LA, Orlando and in Singapore.
