The Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge ride is located inside Bowser’s Castle. The ride will feature vibrant colors, sounds and movement as seen in the games, and guests will wear head-mounted augmented reality (AR) goggles for even more interactivity and immersion.

Each kart will have stadium-style seats that will seat four guests, and it will have the classic 3-2-1- GO! signal from Lakitu, the Koopa on the floating cloud. Guests will steer through the courses on land, in the clouds, and underwater as they compete in the Golden Cup. The mission is to defeat Team Bowser, and another thing that will help them is collecting coins. The ride will have different outcomes, so going on the ride again will feel unique each time.

Super Nintendo World is a collaboration between Nintendo and Universal Creative, and the immersive land will have interactive areas, themed shopping and dining.
