Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge | Super Nintendo World


Theme Painter


Project Type


Themed Land and Attraction

During the summer of 2022, I was brought on by a vendor to complete work on Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge, the E-ticket attraction of the larger Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood. Working both in the shop and onsite, I completed work in the queue line and the attraction itself. I would meet with the Art Director, members of Universal Creative, and Nintendo to get critiques and notes on my work, ensuring everything is up to the high quality standards of the attraction. 

In the shop, I worked in all steps of fabrication: prepping framework; sanding and applying Bondo to achieve smooth, fiberglass-like finishes; applying various materials like joint compound and tile grout to add texture; and painting final scenic finishes.

While working onsite, I completed final scenic finishes in queue rooms and the attraction.
