Super Mario Maker Construction Zones Coming to Science Centres for Labour Day Weekend

Plus retail events to come later.

Labour Day may be a time for resting and relaxation, but thanks to Nintendo of Canada, gamers may instead look to roll up their sleeves and get to work with some construction projects.

SuperMarioMakerArtwork01Between the hours of 10am and 5pm from September 5th to September 7th, the Ontario Science Centre and Montreal Science Centre will each play host to a Super Mario Maker Construction Zone event which invites families out to not only play some of the inventive levels found in Mario’s latest venture, but also create their own using the special stickers and posters available (while supplies last), which you can then take home and proudly display for all to see — and maybe help you remember what you want to do when Nintendo’s own Super Mario Maker construction workers help you in the game itself.

Plus, at the Ontario Science Centre on September 5th, Mario himself will be on hand between the hours of 10:30am and 2pm to greet his fans. Over in Montreal, he’ll be there between 2pm and 4pm, and attendees will also be able to watch or play Super Mario Maker on the IMAX from 11am to 1pm, though available seating is limited.

If you’re unable to make it to either of these events (just as I may not be able to), don’t fret; there will also be retail sampling events, though locations, dates, and times are yet to be confirmed (keep an eye on this page for updates). As a bonus, those attending these events will receive a Mario Construction hat. How awesome is that?
