Unfortunately, the Super Nintendo World theme park, which is located at Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan, did not get off on the right foot. Just in the month of its opening, it had to close its doors due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the area, while in the summer a Goombas tower fell, raising concerns for the safety of visitors. Now, a fire in the facilities mobilized the authorities.
According to reports, the incident took place at approximately 11:30 PM on Tuesday, November 23, so the visitors and much of the staff were not in the park. Thus, an employee detected a fire on the roof of the interior section of the Yoshi’s Adventure attraction.

The worker immediately notified the Japanese emergency services. Fortunately, the fire did not cause significant material damage and no one was injured. Investigations to determine the reasons why the fire started at the attraction continues.
Unfortunately, this situation forced Super Nintendo World to close its doors once again. Thus, the park did not receive visitors for the entire day today, Wednesday, November 24.
“Super Nintendo World” will resume tomorrow, November 25th.
* Yoshi’s Adventure will be suspended.

Fortunately, activities will resume as normal on Thursday, November 25, although the Yoshi’s Adventure attraction will remain closed until further notice.
Despite all this, it seems that Super Nintendo World managed to become a fairly popular tourist destination. A few weeks ago, JL Bonnier, President and CEO of Universal Studios Japan, expressed his wishes to expand the horizons of the park and confirmed that a zone based on the world of Donkey Kong will debut in 2024.
