Japan's Super Nintendo World is shaping up to be one of the world's best and biggest theme parks.
It's slated to open next year any time between March to May and fans have been promised a world that will bring all your favourite Nintendo games to life.
One of the attractions that is getting a lot of attention is the Mario Kart ride. Exact details of the attraction are being kept under wraps but Universal Studios hinted it could mean a racing track with go-karts.
A press release from 2017 stated: "An all-new Mario Kart attraction will be part of Super Nintendo World and will bring the hugely popular Nintendo game to life in a way that takes theme park entertainment to an entirely new level and goes beyond what Nintendo fans and theme park fans have ever seen.
"Guests will enter a world of excitement where they will feel as if they are playing inside their favourite Nintendo games.
"The creative visionaries behind Nintendo's legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative teams behind Universal's blockbuster theme park attractions."
No doubt this will be on the top of every theme park-lover's list when borders are relaxed around the world. The park, which will be located in Osaka, has been finished for a while now but the opening was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Universal Orlando Resort recently tweeted some 'key visuals' from the Mario Cafe & Store, which will open outside the park this week on 16 October.
The restaurant is set to be every bit as stimulating as the game, delivering dishes inspired by the famous go-karter and his friends.
According to the theme park, the exterior of the eatery will feature the 'iconic red and green colour scheme from the Mushroom Kingdom' complete with huge Mario and Luigi hat sculptures to welcome guests.
Once seated inside, diners will be able to admire the 'checkered floors based on the Mario Kart racing flags, LED signs and a luminous sky ceiling' before perusing the menu.
So what does one order off a Mario Kart menu, you might wonder. Luckily, it isn't all mushrooms and banana peels.
While the full menu is being kept top secret, we have been teased that 'Super Mario pancake sandwiches' will be on offer as one foodie delight as well as cream sodas and a range of other drinks.
