I think this will also be coming to the Epic Universe park that will be opening in Orlando in 2025 along with the Mario ride. The ride will have a kind of arm attached to it (I imaging somewhat similar to the robotic arms used in Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey) which will allow the carts to "jump" since the tracks below you are essentially for show.

I don't think this will be a super intense coaster, but more of a family friendly one along the lines of the new Hagrid Roller Coaster. Which is fine, cause that ride is pretty awesome. As a big fan of theme parks and Nintendo, I'm obviously very excited. As an added bonus, it will hopefully pressure Disney to create some neat rides in Florida to compete. The cutting edge Harry Potter rides seemed to force/inspire Disney to make Flight of Passage and Rise of the Resistance which are arguably the two best rides at Disney. Hopefully, they'll make something cool to try to steal the spotlight away from Universal.

What would be intense is if it was based on the more ominous mine cart levels of the original Donkey Kong Country, and like they did for the Mario Kart ride riders get AR goggles, only this time it'd be to show DK and Diddy having to navigate their cart around knocked over carts and Kremlings trying to crash into them.

That would be cool but the Mario Kart ride doesn't actually go very fast from my understanding. Don't think AR would work if it's a legitimately fast roller coaster.
