    Just like in the OG video games, guests will enter the land through the iconic green pipe, go through Peach's castle, and finally land in the colorful Mushroom Kingdom!

    And here's what you'll experience...

    There will even be immersive, interactive elements in Super Nintendo World like a purchasable "Power-Up Band" that can do things like keep scores, collect digital coins, and obtain keys throughout the land!
