Mario, Meet Universal: New Nintendo Attractions Coming To Universal Studios

No joke, nostalgia only, Final Destination: Orlando.

First things first: No, it’s not a full-on Nintendo theme park. However, in a release to Business Wire, Universal Studios Parks has announced that they’re working together with Nintendo to create “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.”

This isn’t the first time Universal Theme Parks has created video game-themed attractions. Perhaps it was their handling of the Monster Hunter park overlay or the similar Resident Evil escape room attraction that made Nintendo pull the trigger. Either way, Nintendo is going to sidle up next to some other big franchises already established in the parks.

While there are no details yet on any specific attractions, with any luck, you’ll soon be able to grab a Krusty Burger (and a Butterbeer to wash it down with) while you wait in line for Mario Kart: The Ride.

I’m hoping for something like The Fast and The Furious, except with even more parachuting cars.
