If you were a 90’s child like me, you were raised on the Super Mario Bros! I would rush home after school to try and get on the Nintendo before my brother took it over. We would play for hours before it would overheat and we would be forced to go outside.
This morning, in EPIC Universal Orlando news, it was confirmed that Super Nintendo World will be apart of the Universal Orlando theme park expansion! There were rumors and mumblings, but today we have an official press release stating our two favorite Italian bros are going to be a huge part of the new Universal expansion.
During a Comcast Q4 earnings call this morning, a Comcast executive said Super Nintendo Land will be part of the “fourth-gate” in Florida! The fourth gate will not open until 2023, but we can wait! We want it done right.
Universal Orlando Resort is building a new, fourth, theme park to be called Universal’s Epic Universe. The vision: create an entirely new level of experience that forever changes theme park entertainment. Universal’s Epic Universe will take guests on a journey where beloved stories expand into vibrant lands – and where that journey is as much a part of their adventure as the ultimate destination.“Our new park represents the single-largest investment Comcast NBCUniversal has made in its theme park business and in Florida overall,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation. “It reflects the tremendous excitement we have for the future of our theme park business and for our entire company’s future in Florida.”The new theme park will also feature an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more. It will be located within a larger 750-acre site that nearly doubles Universal’s total available acreage in Central Florida.
