From July 5 to August 24, 2023, guests visiting Universal Studios Japan can participate in the new “Super Mario Power-Up Summer” show, featuring tons of water as well as the first park appearance of Bowser, Jr.!

The show takes place at Gramercy Park in the New York area, where Mario, Luigi, and Peach have burst out of Super Nintendo World to celebrate the summer with guests. This show involves plenty of guest participation and lots of fun with the pals from the Mushroom Kingdom, but it all comes crashing down when Bowser, Jr. decides to wreck the party! Tons of gallons of water will splash on guests from the stage and all around the viewing area to keep you cool during the hot, humid Osaka summer.

Meanwhile as is tradition every year, the One Piece Premier Show will return to the Waterworld arena this summer. From July 5 to October 10, fans of the classic Shonen Jump manga and anime series can join their favorite Straw Hat Pirates in another new adventure.
