We've got a very special update for you today! We're going to take a look back on Super Nintendo World Construction from our first ever Construction Picture in December 2018, all the way through media night on February 15, 2023.
We've got a video below and pictures if you prefer that. We really hope you enjoy this look back on the creation of Super Nintendo World.
Last week we were invited out to Universal Studios Hollywood for a behind the scenes tour of Super Nintendo World!
Before we get into the update, a huge thanks to Universal Studios Hollywood for having us out for the tour. It's never lost on us how privileged we are to be included in such things.
Also, we will mention that there is still some work to be done in the land, so we've had to crop out certain things from the pictures and video below, so keep that in mind as you view both. On that same note, we do not know right now when Technical Rehearsals may begin, but as soon as we hear anything we will let you know!
Let's head in for a look at Super Nintendo World!
We'll start off with some pics that the park sent to us, all of these are credit to Hamilton Pytluk at Universal Studios Hollywood
Be sure to check out our thoughts on the tour along with some video from within Super Nintendo World!
We are very excited for Super Nintendo World, if you couldn't tell. The land is amazing and you're all going to love it! We can't wait for Technical Rehearsals, Passholder Previews, Media Day and of course opening day. We're going to have a lot of Super Nintendo Coverage over the next month or two, so buckle up!!
We also took some time to get an update outside of Super Nintendo World too!
The Animal Actors and Special Effects show both had their final shows yesterday (January 8th). While it's sad to see these two classic shows retired, we're excited to see what's next for this ever-evolving park.
