After not one but two delays, Super Nintendo World finally opened today. As Being Kansai reports, lines started forming by 6:30 AM, with a good crowd forming within an hour.

Although Osaka lifted the state of emergency earlier this month (Tokyo is currently still under one), with people congregating, waiting inside, and eating in restaurants, obviously covid-19 is still a concern.

Plus, kids are out for spring holidays, so the crowds, even during the pandemic, have been expected. But people are thankfully in masks at the park—and even in the Nintendo promotional images.

Universal Studios Japan has been limiting people in the Super Nintendo World area, just as it typically does for the Harry Potter section.

The wait for Mario Kart hit 50 minutes, while Yoshi’s Adventure was around 35 minutes. In comparison, The Flying Dinosaur was an hour and Hollywood Dream was over an hour. By limiting people in the Nintendo area, Universal Studios Japan can keep the wait times down. Hopefully.
