When you have someone like Bowser stomping around, you’re putting your entire park at risk. While it’s unclear who’s to blame in this instance, Super Nintendo World at Osaka’s Universal Studios Japan closed today—despite it being a holiday period that would normally bring in a bunch of visitors—after a fire broke out overnight. The park will be closed for inspection and confirmation checks throughout November 24.
The fire occurred around midnight, so there weren’t many staff members on hand at the time. One of those present apparently first noticed the fire when they spotted black smoke coming from the top floor of the Yoshi’s Adventure ride, and quickly extinguished it before the fire department even made it to the park.
Damage is said to be minimal, but it’s better to be safe than sorry in cases like this. The rest of Universal Studios Japan is open as normal today.
