The chairs look quite narrow, so if you're worried about comfort, try sitting in the queue to the right of the warp tube entrance.

Super Nintendo World is a theme park based on popular Nintendo video games. The main attraction is Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge, but there are many other interesting activities:

  • four Key Challenges mini-games;
  • photos with Mario, Luigi and Peach;
  • look at Yoshi through digital binoculars running in the distance;
  • tap on POW Blocks and coins to hear familiar sounds from the games.

What is the Power-Up Band?

It's a smart bracelet that costs $40 and is available in six different Nintendo character-themed designs at Super Mario Universal Studios. The wristband will track your score as you collect coins from the blocks inside the Mario Kart attraction. Using the Universal Studios Hollywood app, you can track your exploits and receive various digital stickers. True Nintendo fans and collectors who want to fully immerse themselves in the world of the characters will appreciate Power-Up.

The Power-Up Band is also the key to accessing the Phantom Tussle with Bowser Jr. attraction. But before you can get on this ride, you'll have to complete four mini-games known as Key Challenges. In these challenges, you'll need to time Coop's projectile precisely and smash alarm clocks to put an angry piranha plant to sleep.

The Power-Up Band is the only way to keep track of whether or not you have received the keys to these challenges. If you complete three of them, you'll be able to play the final mini-game, Ghostly Bowser Jr.

The decision to buy Power-Up Band depends on your preferences. If you want to fully immerse yourself in the world of Nintendo characters and get access to all the mini-games and fight Bowser, then buying a wristband might be an interesting upgrade for you.
