    Play a Real Life Mario Kart at Super Nintendo World!

    Do you remember the excitement when you used to play Mario Kart?

    Ahhh the good old days of Mario Kart! Since the series debuted on the SNES, it has become a juggernaut in the gaming industry, with the latest release Mario Kart 8 receiving multiple DLCs with new tracks and characters up to this day. 

    A racing game turned into a theme park attraction sounds like a pretty good deal, right? Even more so something as chaotic as Mario Kart with so much happening at once.


    If you have played Mario Kart before, you know that kart racing can get very thrilling (and competitive). You can always find multiple obstacles like the Banana peel,  the red shells, the green shells, and of course the pesky blue shells that always go after the first place and ruin your entire race during the last lap.

    Bowser's Challenge also features a few obstacles like that! You will board a four-seat vehicle, but there are three things you should do before its-a-go time:

    1. Pull down the lab bar 
    2. Pick up the goggles that are in front of you and attach them to your visor. 
    3. If you are wearing a Power Band, tap it on the “M” that is on the steering wheel so you can track your points.

    Ready? As soon as Lakitu waves the flag, the game starts.

    You will use your steering wheel to move to both sides. While driving, you can collect coins you find along the way and fire shells at your competitors. Before you go, there are some ride details we want you to know:

    1. The height requirement is  40” (102 cm)
    2. Children under 48” (122 cm) require a supervising companion!

    Now you are more than ready to be the best kart racer at Bowser's Challenge at Universal Studios. We can take you there! Send us a message, and let Famvia plan your special trip to Universal Studios Hollywood. Meanwhile, you can keep practicing and playing Mario Kart 8 on your Nintendo Switch. Hey, maybe we even plan a match against team Famvia someday.

    Until the next one, friend!
