What was once previously seen only in schematics and our collective imagination is now coming to life: a new photo shows the Super Nintendo World park under construction at Universal Studios Japan.

It’s not too revealing, but seeing the world of Mario be brought to life before our eyes is a great treat, and we can only anticipate what the full park will look like when it’s complete. In the meantime, let’s speculate as to how long it will take for someone to climb to the top of that flagpole — my estimate is 30 minutes after it opens.
