Universal Studios Japan has offered a virtual web tour of its highly-anticipated amusement park Super Nintendo World. This follows a finalized map of the park that was released around two weeks ago.

The virtual tour takes visitors through the expansive theme park, brought to life by its vibrant Super Mario-themed architecture and animated videos of rides in motion. Attractions like Mario Kart: Koopa’s (Bowser’s) Challenge and Yoshi’s Adventure are shown, which are part of the first phase of Super Nintendo World. The former features a massive staircase alongside a stone statue of Bowser. There’s also going to be augmented reality, projection mapping, screen projection videos and other special effects integrated into the Mario Kart-themed rides, most of which interact with magnetic Powerup Bands visitors are given upon entering the amusement park. The wristbands not only enable ride features but also keep scores of park-wide rankings and other points-based systems like coins and stars. Besides Mario Kart: Koopa’s (Bowser’s) Challenge and Yoshi’s Adventure, the tour walks visitors through a playground, Kinopio’s (Toad’s) Cafe, Pit Stop Popcorn, Yoshi’s Snack Island and the 1-Up Factory gift shop. According to sources, Super Nintendo World has put in over ¥6 billion JPY (roughly $56 million USD) in the project so far.

Super Nintendo World is set to open on February 4. Check out the theme park’s dedicated website for the virtual tour.

In case you missed it, take a look at some of the comments eager fans of Super Nintendo World have about the size of the theme park.
