Super Nintendo World is set to open at Universal Studios Japan sometime in Spring 2020. We know there will be a Super Mario Kart ride, as well as a ride call Yoshi's Adventures. The above patent may give us a look at what the Yoshi ride will be like.
Universal just filed the a patent for a ride vehicle that certainly seems like it would fit with Yoshi. Check out the official patent description below.
Certain ride vehicles may provide park guests with an upright astride ride position, for example, when a ride vehicle is representative of a horse. Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed to ride restraint systems that restrain a park guest via a lower portion of the guest’s body while allowing for freedom of movement of the upper body and arms. The restraint systems may include conformable components shaped to enclose a thigh, knee, and/or shin portion on one or both legs of the park guest, and a behind-the-knee component that may be used in combination with the conformable component(s) to provide for a restraint that secures the lower body to the ride vehicle. The restraint systems may be suitable for use with a variety of park guests of different ages and sizes, including adults and children.
There's no doubt we'll be riding on Yoshi for the Yoshi's Adventures ride, and this patent most likely shows how it'll be done. Now we just sit back and wait for the ride to actually be built!
