Super Nintendo World Theme Park To Open Early 2025 In Florida
Construction has started again on the "Epic Universe" at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida that will be home to the Super Nintendo World theme park. Now, the local mayor has provided an update for when the attraction may open: early 2025.
Jerry Demings shared the update with The Orlando Sentinel, saying that's the projected opening date that he was told by Universal. The park was supposed to open earlier, in 2023, but construction was delayed due to COVID-19. Officially, Universal has not committed to an opening date for the theme park.
"Restarting Epic Universe will result in hundreds of jobs within Universal and thousands of jobs across Central Florida," Universal said. "These positions include highly skilled professional positions, all levels of construction jobs and beyond."
The Epic Universe attraction will include a theme park itself that features Super Nintendo World, as well as a hotel, shops, an entertainment center, and restaurants.
While you may not be able to visit Super Nintendo World anytime soon, you can virtually visit the theme park via this interactive website.
In addition to this theme park, Nintendo is working with Universal's parent company--Comcast--on an animated Mario movie from the makers of Minions.
