( Confirmed )

The anchoring attraction of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood will be Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge, which is an AR-assisted dark ride that allows guests to compete against one another in a three-dimensional world where they can race on iconic Mario Kart courses alongside Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach.

Guests who board this attraction will need to put on a special pair of goggles in order to see the world of Mario Kart come to life around them. Once the ride gets started it will use a combination of AR, projection mapping, and physical, moving set pieces that are placed along a moving ride track while riders collect coins, throw shells and more to win the Golden Cup. The ride itself will be housed inside a massive replication of Bowser's Castle, and assuming the layout is similar to Japan, guests who enter the queue will find plenty of details from the various Mario games to check out as they make their way to the ride loading station.
