Universal Orlando Confirms Three Super Nintendo World Rides, Including Jumping Donkey Kong Coaster

The video includes digital fly-overs of the park, showing viewers what it will look like when it opens next year. If you’ve seen Super Nintendo World in Japan, this park looks nearly identical, with both the Donkey Kong Country (and mine cart coaster) section and the Mushroom Kingdom with Peach’s Castle, Mt. Beanpole, the Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge augmented-reality ride and Yoshi’s Adventure dark ride.

As you can see, the Donkey Kong Mine Cart Madness coaster will feature state-of-the-art track technology that allows it to create the illusion that riders will actually jump off the tracks, just like in the Donkey Kong Country games. 

Like in Hollywood’s Super Nintendo World, which does not have the Yoshi’s Adventure ride or the Donkey Kong expansion as a result of space at the location, and Osaka’s Super Nintendo World, guests can purchase Power-Up Bands to play in interactive Key Challenges to earn coins and more. Plus, returning locations like the Toadstool Cafe restaurant and more will be at Orlando’s iteration of the park. 

Here’s a look at some of the locations to expect when Universal Epic Universe opens next year:
