Theme parks are home to many things: college students trapped in giant mascot costumes, food and rides that'll do a number on your stomach, and lines as far as the eye can see. Now that Nintendo has signed a deal with Universal Parks & Resorts, they'll also be home to Goombas, Dodongs, and Rattatas. 

The two companies announced today that Nintendo-themed areas are coming to Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort, and Universal Studios Japan.

Sounds like it might take a while. In the meantime, here's a list of potential attractions entirely of our own speculation.
