    The park is literally the size medium parking lot. Hell six flags has parking lots bigger than that whole park

    but you can see here it is quite small using that bus (which we all know the approximate size of) as a reference

    Imagine that; A Mario-themed theme park. Not Zelda or Metroid or Animal Crossing or Pikmin. You'd think it was their biggest franchise or somethin'. :P

    I see I'm not the only one, that says it seems cramped like they're using as little space as possible. Look, what that in the distance.. is that .... is that a lawsuit? Wait let me get out my crystal ball, er I mean magnifying glass.

    Yeah, Karts is definitely something they need on the park.

    Heck a company was making money by selling unlicensed Mario Kart karts some years ago.

    That is the job of a good park designer. There are all sorts of tricks of design you can employ to make a space feel bigger than it is, never realise the thing is as small as it is.

    The big green border around the outside means nothing on the horizon to get a sense of scale and you will always been looking up. Lots of indoor stuff there as well.

    The twisty path around the place rather than a grid or simple track. Keeps people guessing at size, makes them walk a bit further and feel like they have done more.
    Ikea do something similar in their shops

    Supermarkets are also masters of this (see left right switching depending upon the side of the road that people drive on in that country, how fruit and veg will usually be the first thing you meet, bread the last, milk in the other corner of the shop, how things go at eye level and on and on).

    In Disney they make the streets get narrower as they go along which makes thing in the distance look further (and thus bigger) than they are, along with a whole bunch of other forced perspective


    To that end yeah if someone, or a whole gaggle of someones, did their job properly then you will not notice it on the ground unless you go looking. That does not however stop it from actually being small so unless they are going to make a giant museum of Nintendo consoles it is going to be small.

    All I want is a life size version of the classic stages from Mario Sunshine. Give me giant colorful blocks to jump around on.

    That's SuperNintendo cluster of the theme park. They will add the Famicom, Gameboy, Gameboy color, Virtual Boy, Nintendo64, Gamecube, Gameboyadvance, and Nintendo DS clusters for the complete one.
    Of course, they plan to add the more recent consoles as well, but later.
