Some interesting news has surfaced regarding the Super Nintendo World theme park that is currently under construction in Japan.
Over on the video streaming website Vimeo, fans discovered a set of hidden video clips that appeared to be previews for the official Super Nintendo World website, speculated to belong to the web designer for the page. The hidden video clips provide viewers with an extensive tour of the site, including design renders, transitions, and more.

The videos even go as far as to show off pictures of real people enjoying some of the rides and attractions that will be present when the park opens, specifically the Mario Kart ride.
Finally, the videos contain some additional details about the Mario Kart and Yoshi rides, “Toad’s Cafe”, and more:
The Mario Kart ride, which according to this is potentially named "Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge" is described as the following:
A number of courses full of surprises, appear in front of you with the latest technology unique to the park!
Ride Time: ~5 minutes
Number of Riders: 4
Height Restrictions: 42″ (106.7cm)
The Yoshi ride, potentially named "Yoshi’s Adventure" is described as the following:
Get on Yoshi’s back, follow Captain Kinopio and set off on a treasure hunt adventure, look at the mushroom kingdom from Mount Beanpole and have fun!
The area’s restaurant will potentially be named Kinopio’s Cafe
The companion mobile phone app which might be named Mobile Mario is described as the following:

Although the videos have since been taken down, several mirrors and backups of the clips are now floating around online, and will likely continue to be available in some form until the site is finally launched. We will be sure to report back on more details from official sources as they come.
