When it opens, Super Nintendo World will feature two major rides — a Mario Kart-themed one called Koopa's Challenge and the kid-friendly Yoshi's Adventure. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto gave us a sneak peek at the park last month, in a Nintendo Direct presentation.

Theme parks around the world have been hit by the pandemic. Most of Disney's parks remain closed, and Disneyland Resort in California is reopening as a mass COVID-1 vaccination site.
