Back on March 18th, 2021, Nintendo and Universal Studios opened Super Nintendo World in Japan. The park opened a bit later than expected, but what followed was a fantastic year of Mario-themed rides, food, merch, and fun!

To celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the park’s opening, a marching band performed the Ground Theme from the original Super Mario Bros., and CEO of Universal Studios Japan, J.L. Bonnier, made a presentation thanking fans for their support.

In honor of the anniversary, anyone going to Super Nintendo World until March 31st, 2022 will be able to get a limited edition first anniversary sticker, and Power Up Bands will grant access to special stamps while at the park.

Lastly, Universal Studios Japan is hosting a Twitter contest that’ll grant winners access to the park for free. Entering the contest involves guessing the correct amount of 1-Up mushrooms in a specific image.

Wow, can't believe it's been one year already. Hopefully the wait for the first US one goes by just as quickly!

I was planning on going to the Orlando version, but with the Hollywood park coming next year, I might have to plan a cross-country trip instead!

I'll meet you there!

I feel the same way! Orlando would have been more convenient for me in Ohio, but the impatient Nintendo fan in me will probably have to make the trek.
