Although we’ve known that Nintendo and Universal have decided to team up for the past three years, it’s been quite a while since we’ve actually heard any updates.  But now, after three years of anxiously waiting, Universal has finally started building the Nintendo park!

 

Yes, we’re all here with you screaming our heads off too. The first one will be built in Japan, and will then come to both Hollywood and Orlando. This means that there’s no need to take a huge expensive trip across the world to experience what we’ve always dreamed out.

 

Each coast will have their own incredible Nintendo themed park. Tons of rumors have been going around about what Universal had in store for us, but Nintendo is what has had us all the most excited.

 

The one thing we know for sure about the park is that there will be a Mario Kart ride, which is already enough to have us waiting in line until the park opens!
