PHOTOS: Super Nintendo World Begins to Take Shape at Universal Studios Hollywood

Now that Universal Studios Hollywood has finally reopened for the “Taste of Universal” event, we’re starting to see what’s been happening at the park while the guests have been away, and for Super Nintendo World, that’s been quite a lot!


While the Lower Lot remains closed to guests, it’s easy to see the new section beginning to take shape from the Upper Lot. The land will be located between Transformers: The Ride — 3D and Jurassic World — The Ride.


The mountain backdrop, which we first saw all the way back in August 2020, already surrounds the project.


Meanwhile, the metal framework for the land and its attractions has already risen up, seemingly at its highest point. If the attraction lineup remains the same for Hollywood as it has for Universal Studios Japan, this peak in the top left corner would indicate the entrance for Yoshi’s Adventure.


The lower areas will be home to interactive elements, including mini-games and a spooky underground.


While things have come so far since this time last year, there still is plenty of work left to be done before guests will be able to come face-to-face with the world of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser and Yoshi.


No official timetable has been given for Super Nintendo World’s opening in Hollywood, though its counterpart in Japan is slated to open March 18th. If you’d like a sneak peek of what the land may be like, be sure to check out our full video tour from Universal Studios Japan!

Wow, I didn’t know it was already in progress. I thought Orlando would get it first but it looks like Hollywood has a head start.
