Mario Time! Super Nintendo World’s Grand Opening is Today Heather Navarro %%item_date%% %%item_source%%
Super Nintendo World, the first Nintendo themed world in the U.S., is finally open to the public Friday Feb. 17. Eager fans braved chilly temperatures to see all the immersive world has to offer, including merchandise, Mario-themed food, and more.
Of course, annual pass members and other lucky Nintendo diehards got a glimpse of the world in the weeks preceding the opening, but today is the day that the entire world can now enter the land at Universal Studios.
The red carpet event took place Wednesday, featuring a star studded lineup including Chris Pratt and wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, Jaime Camil, Dylan Sprouse, Maitreyi Ramakrishna, Jordin Sparks, and more. See the celebs on the red carpet here.
The world is located on the Lower Lot at Universal Studios Hollywood, down the escalators, and next to the Jurassic World ride.
Once you enter the rainbow warp pipe, you’re transported into a land with very intentional sightlines that make you forget you’re even at a theme park. Guests have been saying that once you leave, you remember you’re at Universal Studios again.
