Super Nintendo World Merchandise - PinterestWhere can you find Super Nintendo World merchandise at Universal Studios Hollywood? We get a lot of questions about this, especially from people looking for Power-Up Bands before they go to Early Access. The good news is that there are several shops around the park and in CityWalk for you to buy your Super Nintendo World Hollywood merchandise. You do not even need a theme park ticket to get the goods. In fact, you do not even need to enter Super Nintendo World itself. None of the merchandise (except for items that come with select foods at Toadstool Café) is exclusive to the actual land. Here's where to locate merchandise and what kinds of items you can expect to find.

Places to Purchase Super Nintendo World Merchandise

Here are the places to purchase Super Nintendo World merchandise in Hollywood. Keep in mind you can also look up shopping locations in the Universal Studios Hollywood app. Go to the map and select "Shopping" at the top to find shops and their exact locations.

1-UP Factory — Super Nintendo World

There is one store located inside Super Nintendo World, and you may be surprised to learn that it does not sell everything. You can find even more merchandise at other shops. Plus, The 1-UP Factory is likely the most crowded place to shop for Super Nintendo World merchandise. The Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge ride exits into the shop, so there is always a stream of people coming through, many of whom stop to shop. Power-Up Bands are behind the counter. You can also get the popcorn buckets and sippers here.

Power-Up Band Kiosk — Super Nintendo World

Just outside Super Nintendo World in the Lower Lot is one of the least crowded spots to peruse exclusive Super Nintendo World Hollywood merchandise. It's located behind the stand that sells Super Nintendo World-flavored sodas and popcorn buckets. You'll spot it straight ahead as you exit the Star Way escalators. We have hopped in to purchase Power-Up Bands on our way to Super Nintendo World for Early Access. Purchasing was super fast and we were done buying, setting up and were ready to go in no time. This store sells collectibles, apparel, Power-Up Bands (behind the counter) and souvenirs. Plus, the quieter store means the team members have more time to help you out if you are looking for anything in particular.
