Super Nintendo World Forced To Close Following Fire On Yoshi's Adventure Ride

Japan's incredible-looking Super Nintendo World has been forced to close down temporarily following a small fire on one of the park's Mario-themed attractions.

The Super Mario theme park finally opened its doors at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka earlier this year, but it hasn't been smooth sailing. Just one month after the park opened to visitors, it had to close again due to a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases. Then, over summer, a large Goomba statue fell. This led to an investigation into the park's safety protocols to ensure everything was as it should be. While the park appeared to pass this particular test, it's been hit with yet another blow: a fire on the Yoshi's Adventure ride.

Take a look at the park in action below. It looks like stuff of dreams. You know, when Goombas aren't trying to crush you.

As reported by FNN (via Nintendo Life), the fire was first spotted by a park employee on November 23. Fortunately all of the park's visitors had left for the day, and nobody was injured. The staff member immediately called the emergency services, telling them there was a fire in the ceiling of the Yoshi's Adventure ride's indoor section.

It's still unclear what exactly caused the fire, but the park closed its doors on November 24 so that it could be properly looked into. It has since reopened, but the Yoshi ride remains out of action.
