When one thinks of a theme park, almost by default you’ll find yourself thinking about Disneyland. You’ll think of the rides, the grand parades and the mascots walking around the place. However, for those who love video games above all else, there has never been a compatible place. Well, with the announcement of Super Nintendo World, we have hope that this will soon change. However, it seems we are going to have to wait longer than expected to meet the moustachioed plumber and his pals in person.
According to recent reports, the theme park based around various famous Nintendo properties will be delayed until 2025. This news comes despite the construction of the Orlando theme park basically being complete at the time of writing. The current global pandemic was the initial cause of the delayed opening to the public. However, despite the fact that construction has resumed and finishing touches are being made, the date has been drastically pushed back.
A Blow For Nintendo Fans
Although there has been no official confirmation of these reports from Nintendo officials, the Major of Orlando has stated that in a conversation with those overseeing the project, they told him that they would plan to open their doors sometime in 2025. This date seemingly goes for the sister park built in Japan that is all but finished but will likely remain dormant until 2025 as well.
The initial date for the grand opening was due to be in 2023. However, due to the stoppages to construction, risk assessments and other key aspects of the park’s development, a delay was always to be expected. However, few would have predicted that the events of last year would alter the opening date by two whole year’s.
We have already seen what the park looks like through a virtual tour carried out by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. It showcases the vibrant colours of the decor, the splendour of the attractions and the potential fun that Nintendo fans will have in this park. Yet this is the closest we will get to visiting this park for quite some time. We just hope its worth the wait.
So that’s our news regarding Super Nintendo World. What do you make of the news? Do you think this kind of delay was necessary? What kind of things would you like to see at these parks? Let us know in the comments section below and as always, thank you for reading Cruel Fan
