Since Super Nintendo World opened at Universal Studios Hollywood in February of 2023, it’s been attracting many visitors. And, this isn’t really all that surprising because Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and the other beloved characters from Super Nintendo are increasingly popular. From video games to character clothing and so much more, kids (and their parents) love Mario.

But, if you and your family are planning the trip, it’s important to do some homework in advance. Universal Studios Hollywood gets super busy, and Super Nintendo World itself is an intended destination for many guests.

Planning the Ultimate Trip to Los Angeles and Universal Studios Nintendo World in Hollywood

The Super Nintendo franchise is big—in fact, as of 2023, the brand itself was worth over 6.8 trillion dollars. That’s no small chunk of change. So, if your child is a fan, they’re definitely not alone. That’s why they’ve probably been begging and pleading for a trip to Nintendo World, ever since it opened just over a year ago.

The team at Anaheim Town Car Services loves Super Nintendo World, too. We’ve put together a list of helpful tips to help you maximize your Universal experience and delight in Mario and all his friends. Check out our list of tips below.

1.   Visit During Off-Peak Seasons

We’ll be brutally honest—Universal is always busy. So, trying to go when it is “slow” is likely not a realistic expectation. That said, there are times where it is a bit less busy. We suggest you plan your trip for weekdays in the winter or spring. Also, if Nintendo World is your intended destination, be sure to get to the park right when they open. This will help you maximize your experience.

2.   Buy Tickets in Advance

We highly recommend that you buy your tickets online before you go. This way, you’re sure you’ll get in on the day you want. Plus, you skip the long lines at the ticket booths. It’s a simple step that saves you time and stress.

3.   Consider the VIP Experience

If you have the financial means to do so and want to make your visit super special, think about the VIP experience. You get to skip lines, have special access, and even enjoy guided tours. It’s a bit pricier, but it makes your day at Universal Studios unforgettable. You can purchase the experience online in advance or you can buy the upgraded tickets when you arrive at the park (provided they have not yet sold out).

4.   Check Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge Off Your List Early

Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge is a super big hit. Everyone wants to try it because it is an interactive experience that works with your power-up wristbands (these can be purchased in several of the gift shops). So, get your wristbands and head to that ride first thing. This way, you avoid the long lines that build up as the day goes on. It’s a must-do, so make it your first stop.

5.   Book Transportation with Anaheim Town Car Services

Don’t let LA’s busy roads and tough parking spoil your fun. Book a ride with Anaheim Town Car Services. We make getting to Universal Studios and back to Disneyland easy and comfy, and we understand the traffic and various routes to help get you there on time.

Cross Universal Studio’s Super Nintendo World Off Your Bucket List
