Guests will enter Super Nintendo World through a tunnel. Light blue paneling now covers the weather-proof sheathing of the walls above the tunnel.

A ghostly white tarp covers a pillar near the entrance. Some scaffolding and black tarps remain beneath the pyramids. We saw a crew member working there during our most recent visit.

Crews removed the black tarps covering most of the castle and we can now see the grey-colored front. The purple weather-proof sheathing is still exposed on the three top towers. The entire structure is still surrounded by scaffolding. We could see two crew members working on the ramparts, and the dark entrance to the castle below.

Other than some exposed steel at the center, Mt. Beanpole seems complete, including cloud platforms on the front.
