Wait until you hear about the “power up band”!

That’s right! The Mushroom Kingdom is making it’s way to Universal Orlando as of 2023.

The confirmation came during Comcast’s earning call as of January 23rd. CEO Brian Roberts stated:

“If you look out, I think the next big thing on the horizon is Nintendo. Nintendo based on our research is one of the biggest potential drivers of attendance that you could have of any kind of IP. It’s up there with Harry Potter, which in some of our parks Harry potter drove incremental attendance of about two million people. So Nintendo is in very rarefied air. And the attraction that we’re building in Osaka is spectacular.

“From a creative standpoint it’s really unbelievable and that opens sometime – midyear this year and then we’re going to bring it to Hollywood and we’re going to bring it, obviously, in the fourth gate in Florida. So I think Nintendo is going to be potentially a big accelerator both in the Theme Park business.”

The park is being called Univeral Orlando’s “fourth gate” (with Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, and the Volcano Bay water park making up the other three).

According to multiple reports, the Nintendo theme park will first debut in Osaka, Japan this summer before being followed by an opening in California and Orlando. A location in Singapore is also expected.

Visitors will also have the chance to purchase their very own “power up band” allowing them to connect to an app packed with interactive experiences. While wearing the band, guests can collect coins – as if they were the red man himself – and compete against other iconic characters.
