Bowser Challenge at Universal Studios – Deadline

3-2-1 off! Universal Studios Hollywood today debuted Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge, which will be the iconic ride of its upcoming new immersive Land: Super Nintendo World.

Like its Japanese counterpart, Universal’s first Super Nintendo World in the U.S. will feature Bowser’s Castle, with a dungeon that will house Mario Kart.

According to the press material, the premise is simple, but regardless of the gaming experience, it will be equally challenging for guests of all ages: “As part of Team Mario, guests will travel through the course underwater and in the clouds, competing for the Gold Cup at the same time. Collect coins to beat Team Bowser and win.”

It sounds similar to Japan’s Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge, where each kart carries four team members who wear head-mounted augmented reality goggles to race against the other team on a two-track track.

Along the way, there are piranha plants, sewage pipes, and of course Bowser. Other key elements are that the ride is repeatable and has a variety of potential outcomes depending on how each team plays.

The press material calls it “one of the largest and most interactive rides in the world” and claims that Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge ” seamlessly blends augmented reality with projection mapping technology and actual scenes…for the first time.” Unrivaled rides in the theme park industry.” Power-Up Bands will also be part of the park experience and incorporated into Bowser’s Challenge attractions.
