Set to open in the spring of 2024, SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ will expand by 70% its current size with an all-new area, DONKEY KONG COUNTRY™. The “DONKEY KONG COUNTRY” expansion takes guests on an unforgettable journey through the iconic world of Donkey Kong, featuring interactive attractions, and captivating environments. Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Universal Creative, Brian Robinson announced some of the new experiences at DONKEY KONG COUNTRY. “We are delivering the ultimate wish fulfillment by transporting fans to places they only dreamed of and in doing so igniting the thrill of feeling alive. In SUPER NINTENDO WORLD you can jump like Mario, punch blocks, collect digital coins and battle on Rainbow Road. In DONKEY KONG COUNTRY, we’ve greatly expanded interactivity and gameplay. And just as we brought a first-of-its-kind augmented reality attraction, Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, we are bringing that same level of innovation to DONKEY KONG COUNTRY with a first-of-its-kind thrilling family coaster. A new vision of coaster design that isn’t visually or viscerally bound to a traditional coaster track. This innovative design allows us to present the mine cart ride experiences of the Donkey Kong games, like jumping broken tracks. It is a coaster innovation that could only be born out of DONKEY KONG COUNTRY, and I cannot wait for fans to experience it!”
