The power-up band is an additional item to purchase to make your Super Nintendo World Orlando visit even more interactive.

Super Nintendo World Rides

Universal Studios Hollywood and all other Universal Parks are well known for their amazing rides and themed attractions. Of course, Super Nintendo World's rides are no exception!

Since the park just opened recently, there is only one ride. As of February 2023, you can only jump on the Mario Kart ride.

It's complete with 3D and 4D elements that make it a fully immersive experience Mario Kart fans will love.

⭐  Fun fact: Nintendo World Mario Kart roller coasters are quite different. Universal Studios Japan's Mario Kart: Koopa's Challenge is not the same as Universal Orlando's Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge!

Check out this video of the Mario Kart ride @ Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood. Its interactive AR element makes for a unique experience but requires some patience!

Grab a power band and explore the Mushroom Kingdom and Princess Peach's castle. There you can complete Key Challenges and play interactive games to win points.

⭐  Coming soon: Eventually, we may see more rides added, such as the popular Yoshi's Adventure and the Donkey Kong roller coaster open in 2024 at Universal Studios Japan.
