The park was earlier scheduled to open last summer, however, the plan was put on hold because of the pandemic. Since February is a cold month, the park usually attracts lesser footfall than usual. Apart from that, it is currently operating at only 50 per cent capacity due to the social distancing measures that have been set in motion. Despite these factors, we are pretty convinced that Nintendo enthusiasts will visit this park for sure. After all, who wouldn’t want to experience their favourite game in a life-like scenario? The park is also working closely with health administration officials to ensure the safety of its staff and visitors.
